Abstract

Through this bibliographical study we conclude that the Serat Cabolek, written by Raden Ngabehi Yasadipura I, the most prolific court poet of the eighteenth century kingdom of Surakarta, was a document portraying the tensions in Javanese religious life resulting from contact with Islam. The principal of this tensions was between the "ulama", the defenders of the syari'at and those who rejected legalistic forms of religion and professed Javanese mysticism. In the Serat Cabolek, Yasadipura I shows a tendency to align himself with those "ulama" who regarded the syari'at as a formal guide for the Javanese exterior religous life. He encouraged an outward life which emphasized the syari'at, but for the spiritual life he proposed that any Javanese in search of perfection in life should have as his guiding principle such teachings as those of the Dewa Ruci story. Yasadipura's attitude io the syari'at must be understood in the context of the Javanese syncretic tradition. For Yasadipura the syari'at was merely a wadah which constituted the exterior part of his system of belief and was not its essence. The acceptance of the syari'at as the vessel and of esoteric knowledge as the content may be interpreted as an attempt on the part of Yasadipura I to Javanize the four stages of the Islamic mystical path, by subtituting the Javanese doctrine of the Perfection of Life as found in the Dewa Ruci story for the hagiqat and ma'rifat.
