Javanese Kakawin Sutasoma: written by Mpu Tantular

Fourteenth-century ( Majapahit Empire)

Puru Sād aśanta consists of 27 chapters, 148 cantos and numbers 1209 verses

“Unity in Diversity” (Chapter 139)

Rwāneka dhātu winuwus Buddha Wiswa , (It is said that Buddha and Shiva are two different substances)

Bhinnêki rakwa ring apan got parwanocene , (They are indeed different, but how can they be recognized?)

Mangka ng Jinatwa kalawan Śiwatatwa is single , (Because the truth of Jina (Buddha) and Shiva is single)

Bhinnêka Tunggal ika tan hana dharma mangrwa . (Different unity becomes one, there is no ambiguous truth)


Rwāneka dhātu winuwus Buddha Wiswa,

Konon Buddha dan Siwa merupakan dua zat yang berbeda.

Bhinnêki rakwa ring apan kena parwanosen,

Mereka memang berbeda, tetapi bagaimanakah bisa dikenali?

Mangka ng Jinatwa kalawan Śiwatatwa tunggal,

Sebab kebenaran Jina (Buddha) dan Siwa adalah tunggal

Bhinnêka tunggal ika tan hana dharma mangrwa.
