Abstract
The legacy of various local traditions in Bali is diverse in shape and continues to be preserved for generations by the community according to the interests of each region. One of the local traditions in the village of Pakraman Susut-Buahan Payangan which is classified as unique is 'Maedeng Godel'. This tradition is held ahead of the commemoration of Tawur Kasanga the day before Nyepi Day. Hundreds of Godel were shown to be selected for the best pair, then used as a means of offering sacrifices called "caru". Godel male is offered in 'catus pata', while female Godel is delivered at the local Pura Dalem. The problem is whether the tradition is still relevant and effective in the millennial era. This paper is designed using descriptive-qualitative and interpretative methods. Based on religious theory supported by functionalism-structural theory, cultural traditions can be seen as 'social needs' which arise due to certain demands both by the environment and its supporters. The community believes and believes that offering Godel as a sacrifice is actually an abundance of fortune. Therefore, the people who were chosen were feeling grateful even though they were not given compensation. The interpretation and meaning of the tradition that, Godel who was chosen was believed to have the opportunity to increase the degree in the next reincarnation. Thus, the tradition of ‘maedeng godel’ is still preserved by the community of Susut-Buahan Village, because it is considered still relevant and in accordance with the conditions of the region.
