PERJALANAN ARJUNA

Tembang Clunthang Rinengga:

Tindhake Sang Pekik mandhap saking gunung

anganthti perpat panakawan catur

kang anembe mulat pindha dewa darat

geder betrek-betrek lir endhang swarane 

anjawat angawe-awe ngujiwat

solahe lir endah sengseme

dhuh Raden Sang Abagus

mugi keparenga pinarak wisma kula

amethika sekar mlathi arum amrik wangi

kagema cundhuk sesumping

sosongan amimbuhi mencorong cahyanira Raden

tembang ini menggambarkan ketika Raden Herjuna turun dari gunung Saptarengga, setelah selesai mencecap ilmu kebijaksanaan dari Begawan Abiyasa. Dengan ilmu tersebut  Sang Guru berharap agar Herjuna  ikut ‘memayu hayuning bawana’ memperindah dunia sehingga membawa keselamatan bagi semua ciptaan. Di sepanjang jalan  para kawula mengelu-elukan dan berharap agar Herjuna mau singgah dirumahnya untuk saling membagikan sukacita, keindahan, ketentraman dan keselamatan.

Arjuna’s Journey

The Clunthang Rinengga Song describes when Arjuna went down Saptarengga Mountain after learned about wisdom from Begawan Abiyasa. After he got the knowledge, Abiyasa hoped that Arjuna can contribute to ‘memayu hayuning bawana’, make the world more beautiful for all creatures. Along the road, people praised Arjuna and hoped that he would come by their houses to share the happiness and welfare.
