Right on the night of the 14th month of Kasada, the Tengger tribe together brought cattle and agricultural offerings to Luhur Poten Temple and waited until midnight when the shaman ordained the elders. Furthermore, the prepared offerings are taken to the top of the mountain crater to be thrown into the crater as a symbol of the sacrifices made by their ancestors. For the Tengger tribe, offerings were thrown into the Bromo crater as a form of oath or gratitude for abundant livestock and agriculture. In the crater it seems that there have been waiting for many beggars and populations living in the interior. What is interesting is that they have always come here and even deliberately set up temporary shelters around Mount Bromo and hoped to get ongkek – padagkek which contained fruit offerings, livestock, and money. The activity of perching inland residents in the Mount Bromo crater can be witnessed from night to day before the day before the Kasada Yad ceremony is celebrated. The Kasada celebration on Mount Bromo is scheduled to be held on June 17-19 2019.
