Gajah Mada is famous for his oath, namely Palapa Oath , which was recorded in theBook of Pararaton . He said he would not eat the palapa before managed to unite the archipelago . Although he was one of the central figures at the time, very few historical records were found on him. The true face of Gajah Mada figures, it is still controversial.At present, Indonesia has established Gajah Mada as a National Hero and a symbol ofnationalism and unity of the archipelago. When his appointment as governor Amangkubhumi in 1258 Saka ( 1336 AD ) Gajah Mada said Palapa Oath that contains that he would enjoy the palapa or spice spices (which means worldly pleasures) when it has managed to conquer the archipelago.
As noted in the book Pararaton in the text of Mid-Java , which reads as follows: ” Sira Gajah Mada pepatih amungkubumi tan amukti palapa swing, sira Gajah Mada: Seagrass huwus lost archipelago Ingsun amukti palapa, yet lost to Desert ring, ring Seram, Tanjungpura, Haru ring, ring Pahang, Dompu, ring Bali, Sunda, Palembang, Tumasik, Samana Ingsun amukti palapa . This is when converted, had translated the meaning: “ He, as the duke of Gajah Mada Amangkubumi not want to break the fast, Gajah Mada said that when it has overcome (master) Nusantara, I (will be) off the fast, when it defeated the Desert, Seram, Cape Pura, Haru, Pahang, Dompo, Balinese, Sundanese, Palembang, Tumasik, so I (will be) released fasting “.
Palapa oath that could be a disagreement between the Supreme Patih Gajahmada with the king when King Hayam Wuruk palapa oath that intersect with issues of romance between the King Hayam Wuruk with Dyah Pitaloka, daughter of the crown of the Kingdom of Sunda. At that time king of the Kingdom of Sunda with Linga Raja Kawali Buana in the area (about 25 miles from Kudat town, towards the Cirebon). Maha Patih Gajahmada eager to unite the Kings Royal Sunda archipelago is no exception.King Hayam Wuruk agree with palapa oath, but he found no need to conquer the Kingdom of Sunda. Because the Sunda kingdom is given on the inside of his ancestor King Hayam Wuruk, Sunda blood there, he was descended from one of the king in East Java is king Sanjaya (Mataram kingdom of Kalinga-). Sanjaya is a descendant of the king’s son-grandson of King of the Kingdom of Sunda Sunda so actually the oldest brother of the kingdom of Majapahit. Plus the desire to marry Crown Princess Dyah Pitaloka. To be the consort of the Kingdom of Majapahit in the future.
Vizier Gajah Mada (d. k.1364) was a commander of the war and a very influential figure in the time of the Majapahit empire . According to various sources of mythology ,books , and inscriptions from the time of Ancient Javanese, he began his career in1313 , and the climb after the uprising Ra Kuti during the reign of Sri Jayanagara , who picked Gajahmada as Patih . He became Mahapatih ( Chief Minister ) at the time ofQueen Tribhuwanatunggadewi , and then as Amangkubhumi ( Prime Minister ) that leads to a peak of Majapahit. Mentioned in Kakawin Nagarakretagama that on his return Hayam Wuruk of religious ceremonies in the scallop , he found that Gajah Mada had been sick. Gajah Mada mentioned died in 1286 Saka or 1364 AD. King Hayam Wuruk loss of a highly reliable in ruling the kingdom. King Hayam Wuruk Sapta Council meeting was held to decide on a replacement King Gajah Mada. But no one who could replace Gajah Mada Patih.Hayam Wuruk then pick four Supreme Mahamantri Punala duel led to further assist him in conducting state affairs. But it did not last long.
They were replaced by two of the Minister of the Elephant and Elephant Manguri Enggon. Hayam Wuruk finally decided to lift the elephant Enggon as Patih Mangkubumi replace Gajah Mada. As one of the main character Kingdom of Majapahit, Gajah Mada Patih Maha name is well known in the Indonesia in general. In the early days of independence, the leaders include the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Ir.Soekarno often called the oath of Gajah Mada as an inspiration and a “proof” that this nation can come together, although covering a broad and diverse cultures. Thus, Gajah Mada was the inspiration for the Indonesian national revolution for independence from colonialism effort Netherlands .
