Ramalan Jayabaya

Iseng-iseng googling akibat rasa penasaranku yang memuncak tentang Jayabaya. Masih bingung sih mencermati beberapa kalimat jayabaya.

Jayabaya was born in 1135 in the kingdom of Kediri, East Java. He was famous as a prophet-king. During his reign, he ordered Sedah and Panuluh, Mpu (teachers) and writers as well in the kingdom, to write his stories. He lived only for 24 years but left us 'Jangka Jayabaya,' a book of Jayabaya's propechy.

One of the most famous propechies is about the colonization of Indonesia and the Second World War.

Jayabaya said, "There will be a time, the kingdom will be overtaken by strange people coming from nowhere, with white skin, magic sticks that could kill people from the distance. They will conquer and rule our kingdom for very long time, until a number of short people with yellow skin come from north, drive out the whitemen. This new foreigners also will rule our kingdom, but just as long as a corn's life (3 1/2 years)."

Indonesia had been the colony of Netherlands since 17th century and during the Second World War, in March 1942, Japanese took over the country. Then they went out in August 1945, just as Jayabaya said.

And the other one that became a hot topic in Indonesia a few years ago, is the names of Indonesian leaders.

He said, "The upcoming kings, have name like this word, 'Notonegoro' (rule the state)."
The first President of Indonesia (1945-1966) was Sukarno, NO on the last two letters. The second President of Indonesia (1967- ) is Soeharto, TO on the last two letters. That's why everyone is predicting who will be the third president.

HNs said...

Wah... makasih Bintang Alzeyra, Saya jadi ingat wejangan dari Leluhur Saya.
Maturnuwun tenan.
Ramalannya emang cuma sampe itu ya? seingat Saya da tambahannya beberapa kalimat.
Untuk Mas Rivai, nuwun sewu. Ramalan emang tidak bisa dipercaya. Tapi yang dari Eyang Jayabaya ni bukan ramalan. Ngapunten ne Mas.

Arya A. Sadhana said...

Hmmm... Ijin untuk urun rembuk ya.

Masalahnya adalah penggunaan dan penempatan kata. Jika "Ramalan" dipilih untuk mewakili "Perkataan seseorang mengenai masa depan", maka ramalan dari orang-orang tertentu wajib dipercaya. Saya pernah berkata pada Bintang, bahwa tidak selamanya ramalan adalah isapan jempol. Jangan lupa, seluruh agama samawi memercayai bahwa Tuhan Yang Mahaesa menurunkan utusan-utusanNya di Bumi dan mereka adalah para Rasul, Nabi, serta para Waliyullah (di Indonesia lebih dikenal dengan istilah"Wali"). Mereka ini berkata-kata selayaknya kita (manusia biasa) berkata-kata. Namun yang mesti diingat, bahwa perkataan mereka bukanlah pendapat mereka pribadi - melainkan sesuatu yang diwahyukan Tuhan Yang Mahaesa kepada mereka. Sementara para Rasul, Nabi, dan Waliyullah sendiri hanya berkewajiban untuk menyampaikan wahyu-wahyu tersebut kepada manusia-manusia biasa (seperti kita). Mau percaya atau tidak, itu dikembalikan kepada setiap individu manusianya sendiri. Di dalam versi Islam, Allah SWT berfirman kepada Rasulullah Muhammad SAWW, "Sesungguhnya tugasmu hanyalah menyampaikan. Jika mereka ingin beriman, maka biarkanlah mereka beriman. Tetapi jika mereka berpaling, maka biarkanlah mereka berpaling."

Pada zamannya, semua Rasul, Nabi, dan Waliyullah senantiasa mendapatkan penentangan dari mayoritas masyarakatnya. Sebagaimana diterangkan di dalam semua kitab samawi (Taurat, Zabuur, Injil, dan al-Qur'an). Namun kemudian, seluruh "ramalan" mereka menjadi nyata. Jika sudah demikian, golongan manusia yang menentang mereka dan menolak untuk memercayainya, menjadi golongan yang merugi selama-lamanya.

Memang, setidak-tidaknya menurut ajaran Islam, Allah SWT tidak akan mengutus Rasul dan Nabi lagi setelah Rasulullah Muhammad SAWW. Namun demikian kita mesti ingat, bahwa para Waliyullah akan selalu ada sampai Hari Kiamat. Dan perkataan-perkataan mereka, juga merupakan hasil dari pewahyuan (dalam kadar dan derajat yang berbeda dengan para Rasul atau pun Nabi).

Di lain sisi, banyak sekali ramalan-ramalan yang sifatnya asal - seperti yang sempat menjadi trend belakangan ini, terutama di kalangan selebriti lokal. Ramalan-ramalan seperti ini dalam Bahasa Inggris, biasanya disebut dengan istilah "fortune telling", sedangkan ramalan-ramalan para Rasul, Nabi dan Waliyullah disebut "prophecies". Jelas berbeda. Sayangnya Bahasa Indonesia tidak menyediakan kosakata pembeda seperti ini (atau mungkin ada, tapi saya tidak mengetahuinya).

Di luar itu semua, menurut saya, kita agak terlalu cepat menilai seandainya langsung dapat menyimpulkan bahwa ramalan Jayabaya tidak dapat dipercaya. Saya pribadi (setelah mencermati riwayat hidup Jayabaya serta titik-titik terpenting di dalam sejarah hidup beliau) sangat tidak berani untuk mengatakan bahwa ramalan Jayabaya tidak bisa dipercaya. Bagi saya, setelah mencermati sejarahnya, Jayabaya adalah murid dari seorang Waliyullah.

Sebagaimana diriwayatkan dalam sebuah kitab, bahwa Jayabaya hanya menyampaikan ulang apa yang telah disampaikan oleh gurunya.

Mohon maaf jika ada kesalahan di sini dan di situ, monggo dikoreksi seandainya perlu.
