Abstract
Tooth filing ceremony is one of the ceremonies that must be performed by Balinese Hindu
society. This ceremony is intended for Hindus who are starting to enter the adolescence. This ceremony is only
carried out once in a lifetime, and believed to be able to control Sad Ripu (six negative traits within humans) by
filing six upper front teeth of the participants. This ceremony is also a debt that the parents must pay to the
ancestors and their children. The implementation and meaning of the tooth filing ceremony is contained in
several sources such as lontar (manuscripts), namely Kala Tattwa manuscripts. This research aims to reveal the
significations of tooth filing ceremony according to Kala Tattwa manuscripts, in terms of philosophical,
sociological, educational, and sanctity aspects, and its implementation at Siwa Agung Jagadhita Foundation.

Key words: Tooth Filling Ceremony; Kala Tattwa Manuscripts; Hindu Balinese Tradition
