The next day 17 March the nyepi "sipeng" will be started by implementing 4 rules of nyepi called "catur brata penyepian". First called Amati Gni : not allowed to set lights and fire; Amati Karya : not doing work at all ; then Amati Lelungan, not going anywhere and must stay at home ; Amati Lelanguan, not having fun / pleasure and avoid any entertainment forms.

Get ready for the move(ment)... @ecoempress_nyw
5 days left until the first day of spring 🌷(and 2 days until the last new moon 🌙 of winter)... The frequency of this energy is said to be beneficial for bringing tasks to completion or tying up loose ends. This allows us to make space for new things to manifest in our lives, in #sychronicity with the #blooming 🌻 of nature.
How will you utilize this energy? 🤔

What caught my eye and attention on seeing the Greek soldier at the Greek Parliament was the uniform! So, in the evening as I got back to my airbnb, I turned on my laptop and here’s all the interesting facts I got to learn :)
•The Greek Presidential Guards are also called ‘Evzones’, a group of elite Greek soldiers who are trained to perform various ceremonial duties.
• Since it was a Sunday, I was lucky to see them in this white uniform which is worn only on Sundays and official occasions.
• The uniform consists of the ‘Farion’ (cap) with long silk tassels with a Greek coat of arms at the front indicating the officers rank displayed underneath.
• The ‘Fermeli’ is the waist coat worn on top of the shirt, which is intricately hand embroidered entirely from wool, which takes months to complete!! •The ‘Ypodetes’ is the white shirt with flared sleeves, thought to symbolise the purity of the national purpose.
• The ‘Foustenalla’ is a kilt made from over 30 metres of fabric and 400 pleats to represent the liberation of Greece from the years of the Ottoman occupation. • The ‘Krossia’ (braided fringes) are blue and white representing the colours of the Greek Flag 🇬🇷 • The ‘Tsarouchia’ shoes weigh over three kilograms, features at least 60 nails on the base, with black silk pom-pom which is hand cut to shape. Base of the shoe is made from cow hide and requires at least 300 hand stitches to hold the shoe together worn with two pairs of ‘Periskelides’ (stockings) held up by silk garters called ‘ Epiknemides’
• Lastly, the M1 Garrand Gun of five kilograms slammed into the shoulder. .... No wonder, the idiom ‘ it’s Greek to me’ makes a lot of sense. The names are not something one can easily remember or say! Needs practice 😆💁♀️ Admire how they carry off their uniforms in the scorching heat! .
