Indonesians conduct Warak Kruron ceremony after miscarriages

According to local beliefs in Indonesia, Warak Kruron, a Balinese Hindu ceremony, is performed for someone who has suffered a miscarriage or lost a fetus, who must then be prayed for so that its spirit does not disturb the mother and the family.

Usually, this ceremony is carried out en-masse to reduce costs, without reducing the value of the ceremony.
