Tiga Jenazah Keluarga Puri Di Pelebon Tjokorda Kerthayasa Bendesa Ubud dan Penglingsir Puri mengatakan, upacara Pelebon untuk ketiga jenazah itu dilakukan untuk mengantarkan roh yang meninggal dunia menuju kembali ke nirwana.
Bade shows the social status of the deceased in the community, it is shown by the number of the tier of the bade roofs. The number of the roof of the bade is always odd (3, 5, 9, and 11). A commoner or sudra is forbidden to use bade in his cremation. The gentry usally use 3 up to 9-roof bade depend of his or her social status; higher social status means higher and more elaborate bade. The 11-roof bade is reserved specially for a king.See the videos on youtube by Hans & Fifi

Bali: Triple Royal Creamtion Ubud # 3 "The energetic procession and the burning" by Hans & Fifi
On 10 February 2011 the big Triple Royal Cremation took place of Tjokorda Rai Astawa, Tjokorda Ngurah Wardana and Tjokorda Gerald Sukawati. An energetic Cok Raka Kertyasa on one of the towers leading the procession through the main street in Ubud to the Pura Dalem Puri, where the heavy triple burning took place (tremendous sight of the three black bulls going up in the flames). Really great to be there.
The Bade represents the ancient Balinese cosmogony the Bedawang Nala (The world turtle) as its base, surrounded by the two dragons, Naga Basuki and Ananta boga as the symbol of safety and perpetual foods. Above them on the backside of the Bade is a big, grotesque mask of Bhoma with its outstretched wings symbol of the lofty forest and mountains. At the very top is the receding size of the multi tiers of roof, symbol of the heaven. The turtle and the dragons live in the lower world named Bhur, and the above is the world of man called Bwah, symbolized with the Bhoma. At the top is the world of heaven, Swah and it is symbolized by the tiers of roof at the Bade itself.
