The Old Javanese Calendar

The Old Javanese Calendar

Penanggalan Jowo Lawas or The Old Javanese calendar is part of the calculation of the science of Java - the traditional mathematics. This is part of the Post Reference - Epic Discovery. In this case, at least in need of expert especially in traditional Javanese philosophy and Science Java (Kejawen) and Javanese culture. We review Argument ancient Javanese calendar isn't yet complete so it will be updated at any time.
Javanese Calendar
In Java, the National calendar isn't enough, so many people who don't choose it, because it makes them confused in determining the important day, Weton Day, and the determination of "Pasaran Day" or the determination of traditional market. Thus, National Calendar just isn't salable or rarely used the Java people.
Javanese calendar is a calendar showing the year, month, date, day or time period that is decisive. [ National Calendar - Javanese Calendar - The calculation of ancient Java (The science of Java) ] is the foundation, system, and measuring every day important the Java people.
Epic travelers - The Old Javanese Calendar

Count changes in the application of the month and day of repeatedly, called is Cycle the Javanese calendar. For the layman, the calculation of the Javanese calendar is very confusing. In the Javanese calendar besides the seven days (Sunday to Saturday), we also found a number of cycles - count of old Java Calendar.
The table shows the traditional mathematics of important people from Java. They are write or showed languages or dialects based on sound mouth. This table (Penanggalan Jowo Lawas) doesn't exist on Wikipedia. Many traditional leaders replied that the ancient calendar calculation; the writing or note is a summary of each person different, they understand the appropriate reference or a better understanding of each formula, and basically found the same answer point.
Javanese calendar contains several systems, overlapping but separate measurement of day, called the trip - Cycle Javanese calendar. These include:
Month, and National Date
National date is the date that is generally used nationally, but also applies to the same calendar date is used in the world.
National date: 1,2,3,4,5 .... 31.
• January (31 days) • February (28 days) • March (31 days) • April (30 days) • Mei (31 days) • June (30 days) • July (31 days) • August (31 days) • September (30 days) • October (31 days) • November (30 days) • December (31 days).
(One year consists of 12 months, and 365 days)
National Day
National Days is a day that is generally used nationally, but also applies to same day calendar used in the world.
National Day
• Sunday • Monday • Tuesday • Wednesday • Thursday • Friday • Saturday.
National Year
National Year is a Year that is generally used nationally, but also applies to same year calendar used in the world.
• 2015 • 2016 • 2017 • 2018 • 2019 • 2020 ...
Java Day
Javanese calendar day, along with days others (National Day) being called Pasaran Day. "Pasaran Day" is days used to regulate or control the economic activities of traditional markets in Java. In Java, (Open and Close) the market isn't based on a holiday or Sunday or open every day, but based on the Java days. In Java, the traditional markets have days specified. For example: Malioboro market on the day: Legi and Wage, whereas Prambanan market on the day: Pahing and Pon. On the other hand, Pasaran Day doesn't apply when preparing the big day activities or special feast day.

Quality Font Java (Artistic Art of Font Ancient Java)
Currently Java Font has not become important or priority in Yogyakarta, and only certain points, especially the use of Font Java on the signboard or special street nameplate in Yogyakarta Region. Why? Is the Java Font likely to disappear? I don't know.
Javanese calendar has five day, such as:
• Legi (ꦊꦒꦶ) • Pahing (ꦥꦲꦶꦁ) • Pon (ꦥꦺꦴꦤ꧀) • Wage (ꦮꦒꦺ) • kliwon (ꦏ꧀ꦭꦶꦮꦺꦴꦤ꧀).
Systems, and measurement overlap
Example: National days and Javanese Days.
• Sunday Legi • Monday Pahing • Tuesday Pon • Wednesday Wage • Thursday Kliwon • Friday Legi • Saturday Pahing • Sunday Pon ...etc ... etc
The Javanese calendar, the two types of days are combined to remember important events, such as: A person is born or otherwise. Javanese Day can also define the properties of a person. Example, a person born in Sunday Legi or born in Monday Pahing. Some experts - ancient Javanese Calendar, the birthday of the unknown can be found by using this system (Java Day) with more complex to calculate the date of the day and year. According to the beliefs of people of Java, birth someone in the month of Java, it is contradictory if a person suffers from pain. So the days of Java is strongly related with a person or a so-called "Weton Day".
Name: Jhon Dongbedot is born Sunday Legi. (The properties of these men cool and sweet).
Sunday Legi is the day of birth or Weton Day. Whether they are sick on the day of Java?
In this case can be related also with traditional ceremonies such as Traditions Kenduri and Among-among.
Read also in Exploring the Post Reference: (Traditional Kenduri) opens in new window.
In the past, Pasaran Day often used to name someone in Java, because they make it easier to remember an important day of one's birth. For example: (Day of Pon) is often used for someone female, whereas (Day of Wage) and (Day of Legi) used to name the men or remember a person's birth.
On the other hand "Java Day" is related with the work that isn't allowed, which is called "Géblak Day".
(Géblak Day) is an important day that related with someone who has (Go or deceased) within the scope of a family. They aren't recommended to planting, traveling far, make buildings, or work related to life. "Géblak Day" has a different sequence and has been exhausted or the time period. All about "Géblak Day" depending on the values set.
Java Day has a symbol of the circle of life. Javanese calendar shows the life cycle of human beings on many things, for example: belief, weton (someone born), work, Make buildings, traveling far, traditional activities, culture, fate, etc.

Java Month
Javanese calendar month is called the Javanese Month. Javanese Month has twelve months, such as:
• Sura (ꦱꦸꦫ) • Sapar (ꦱꦥꦂ) • Mulud (ꦩꦸꦭꦸꦢ꧀) • Bakda Mulut (ꦧꦏ꧀ꦢꦩꦸꦭꦸꦢ꧀) • Jumadil Awal = Jumadilawal (ꦗꦸꦩꦢꦶꦭꦮꦭ꧀) • Jumadil Akhir = Jumadilakhir (ꦗꦸꦩꦢꦶꦭꦏꦶꦂ) • Rejeb (ꦉꦗꦼꦧ꧀) • Ruwah (ꦫꦸꦮꦃ) • Pasa (ꦥꦱ) • Sawal (ꦱꦮꦭ꧀) • Dulkangidah (ꦢꦸꦭ꧀ꦏꦔꦶꦢꦃ) • Besar (ꦧꦼꦱꦂ).

Old Javanese Calendar (Penanggalan Jowo Lawas)
Method of Penanggalan Jowo Lawas is part of the calculation of the science of Java - the traditional mathematics which has been prepared in such a way. Originally in Javanese calendar isn't known formula, but experts tried are suitable. Counting the table structure is known to have a change, so that these changes are matched to the "Java Month" and "Java Days" on a calendar in the future. And then it will be found "Sentences and talk" on "Data Table".
The Javanese Calendar Ancient, typically used for day calculation of important activity in Java. "Java Month" and "Java Year", then the determination of "Java Day", and the determination of the "National Date" and "National Day", And then determining the "National Year".
Illustration of the calculation of the important the Java
• Calendar of today = ["Java Month" - "Java Year" - "Java Day" ] =
• Upcoming calender = ["National Date" and "National Day" "National Year"] -- (Sentences and talk = Date: 1 Suro - Jumat Wage).]
In the "upcoming calendar", they can't determine the National Day, but may determine the months and year to come (important day).
Example of usage activity of the Javanese Calendar calculations are in Post Reference "Singir Jawa Kuno". They use an important day as follows: 3 days, 7 days, 40 days, 100 days, one year, two years, and the last thousand days. This is one part of the original Javanese tradition, and is the traditional mathematics calendar of Java people.

Dino Kotong (Blank Day) is a complex calculation and structure as well as on a daily basis is important Java. Experts say "Dino Kotong" can be used to reply to criminal behavior. On the other side a said "Dino Kotong" narrow time or safe time to do something. Formulas "Dino Kotong", is a formula that can be counted numbers on the table. It is a formula for them or about the people of Java on the science of ancient Java. Whether what, the truth of "Dino Kotong"? Whether concerns the interests of culture during this time, or something about the keeping of peace and prosperous to their stay, or reject about disruption of their land.

The second table below shows the requirements to build or create house or employment. On any Java requirement to have a lot of intent and meaning which related.
For example: We make a house, the day in the calculation of Java is also very important and the rules that we do. This table shows only requirements but isn't mandatory. Each house describes the special aurora, so many people of Java a gave gold on the wood or buffering the roof before the roof is closed. They believe aurora home more comfortable, quiet atmosphere, cool also peace for the home occupant.
We didn't know that the house isn't only inhabited by us, but also the delicate creatures who also chose the comfortable nuances and calm atmosphere, without disrupting who owned the house. When seated and pensive as if there was someone who saw or pay attention to us in a room. It may be a picture of our minds alone, but a lot of people who think the same about such incidents.

This article can only be questioned on the people who are experts in the field of art and culture of Java - particularly Java Sciences. Calculation of Javanese calendar is a small historical part of the establishment of a calendar which quickly circulated as now. This article doesn't include the calculation of the Islamic calendar and the Tionghoa Calendar.
This table is a copy of the old books by Djardjawihardja. In his book extensively covered the old methods and the incorporation of Arabic letters. Such as: Counting of Javanese calendar, an antidote to crime, repay evil, occult science, rajah, pain medications, chapter of dreams, chapter of events, and so on. All matters about the Ancient Javanese Science can't be shared, that some Java Science should be hidden. Anyone can find out about the Science of Java, but only for those who want to really learn.
Science of Java, not based on the progress or implementation of new technologies, but about chapters natural sciences, natural (artless), mystic, philosophy and a few things about the old magic methods. If we trace, The Old Javanese Science is the science that was made real on the goodness of life, goodness of life on earth, and well-being; but most now say that "The ancient Javanese Science" doesn't have the basic knowledge. That in this case "The ancient Javanese Science" can't be equated with a lot of books, beliefs of religion, history or beliefs of each traditions.
Determination Season
The old calendar is also determine the cycle of seasons, but in today's world of Java calendar also has a great change and just as with the National calendar. They determine from the direction of the wind, clouds and overcast called season (Mongso) for plant species the suitable.
