The Legend of the Kesodo Ceremony

 

Once upon a time on Mount Bromo, East Java, there were a couple living there. The new couple wanted to have a child. They had married for a long time but they hadn’t got a baby. Every time they prayed to the Gods, asking for a child.

One day, there was a loud voice in the sky when they were praying.

“You are going to born a baby, and later you will give birth to many children. But I have a requirement for you to obey, if you really want to have children”, said the voice.

“Whatever you ask, my Lord”, the couple answered, “We will do it”,

“You must sacrifice your first son for the gods”.

The couple agreed to sacrifice their first son in the time that was asked by the voice. Then, the wife got pregnant and gave birth to a son. The baby grew up into a handsome, taught man. He was named Kesuma. The couple loved Kesuma very much. The wife gave birth to eleven more children after Kesuma. And, they forget their promise to sacrifice their first son to the god.

One day, the volcano erupted. Before that, there were series of earthquakes followed by thunders in the sky. The sky was very dark, as if it was going to fall down. On the next occasion, there was a voice in the sky, reminding the couple about their promise. The couple was very afraid, but they just couldn’t sacrifice their beloved son, Kesuma. However, because the earthquakes and the thunders were becoming more and more horrifying, Kesuma couldn’t let his family and all the people in the village die.

Kesuma knew the situation. Then he said to his parents. “I would sacrifice myself in order that our family and all the people in our village will live in peace.
