“Ngrujak” is the first ceremony for a woman with early pregnancy. This ceremony aims to strengthen a mother’s pregnancy and reduce risk of miscarriage. Also aim for healthy and safe growth of the future baby.
The main ingredient for “Ngrujak” are various kind of bananas and fruits such as pomegranate, papaya, mango, star fruit, snake fruit, gourka, angel’s trumpet, palm sugar (juruh) and honey. A tiny ruby gem (if possible delima ruby) is then put into the fruit mix, placed on a vanity or “gedah” made of glass, then blessed with mantra by the priest.
