Aksara Nusantara ep.6 - Hanacaraka (aksara jawa)


After the syllables ha, na, ca, ra, and ka have been discussed in previous posts, this time I will try to respond to the form of one syllable group, namely "hanacaraka".

In addition to the original meaning of what was mentioned in the previous post, Javanese script has various interpretations of meanings. One well-known meaning is the meaning by ki Sarodjo published in the book Nawangsari written by Prof. Dr. Damardjati Supadjar who is a scientist, and professor at Gadjah Mada University and spiritual adviser of the Yogyakarta Sultanate Palace.

Here is the meaning of "hanacaraka";

Hanacaraka means there is a "messenger" that is a messenger of life, in the form of breath that is obliged to unite the soul with human bodies. It means that there is someone who entrusts, there is someone who is trusted and someone who is trusted to work.

Hana means exist, Caraka has meaning as creativity, taste, intention (cipta, rasa, karsa).

Hopefully this post can be enjoyed, and see you in the next post that will try to respond to the form of syllable "da"

Cheers!
