Classification east-west take the consequences in the lives of the order of the ceremony.

Toraja people not separated from the ceremony. Each phase of life is always at the same time with the ceremony. Similarly, in this life does not escape from the problem-like depression, light and dark. In the system known by the name of ritual signs Tukaâ € ™ (ceremony excitement) and signs Soloâ € ™ (ceremony dolor). Execution time, place, and officials who served in the two devices in the ceremony is divided sharply. For example, a beacon Tukaâ € ™ should not be served to buoy Soloâ € ™.

Ceremony Tukaâ signs € ™ held in the east Tongkonan at the time the sun began to rise, while Soloâ signs € ™ held in the west at the time the sun began to sink. The ceremony to worship Puang Matua performed in front of the house (north).

Signs Tukaâ € ™ This is a ceremony of the four safety alliance life, namely Aluk Maa € ™ lolo, a ceremony for human life and safety; Aluk Patuoan, ritual and life safety for animal and livestock animals; Aluk Plant, a ceremony to plant safety and the growth of crops and Aluk Building BANUA, the ceremony for the safety of home placement and home by owner.

Not too many people know that the people have Toraja ritual signs Tukaâ € ™ because this is more mengedepan in the mass media is a beacon ceremony Soloâ € ™. Signs Soloâ € ™ is a ritual of death and funeral ceremonies as the man who made the sacrifice of animals could be eating the cost hundreds of millions of rupiah, depending on the social strata will be someone who is dimakamkan.
