Katuranggan, have you heard this before ?
No.. No.. I didn’t talk about how to become a strong man by run some sport activities. This is not about how to teaches the students to be physically powerful by using inner power and/or mantras, and invulnerable to any kind of weapons, bullets etc. That’s another phrase, "Kanuragan" :-P.
Katuranggan is an interesting topics due to it’s relationship with sex 😉 . Some people think that Katuranggan is local Kamasutra. This is not wrong, and this is not true anyway.
Katuranggan not talked about sex as a global topics. Katuranggan focused with knowledge of women issues.
Katuranggan found in some old manuscript in the Kawi (Java) language, Serat Centhini or Suluk Tembangraras is one example. In the women issues, Katuranggan means that the knowledge to know all of woman character, symbol or indication by their physical appearance.
Katuranggan literature contains a knowledge about the identity or type of good wife by their physical appearance, ie : guntur madu, merica pecah, tasik madu, sri tumurun, puspa megar, surya surup-surya sumurup, menjangan ketawan, amurwa tarung, or mutyara.
Just an example : women with surya sumurup type means that she has red lips, blue-like eye, sinom (small hair in the forehead) and her eyebrow nanggal sepisan (just like crescent). Woman with these appearance would be a loyal wife and clever in making love 🙂 .
Source of Katuranggan not only came from Serat Centhini. "Kitab Primbon Lumanakim Adammakna" contains a lot of type of good and loyal wife. Kiai Saleh Darat from Jepara has published the book of Katuranggan in 1899.
Some skeptical opinion said that Katuranggan is one of man superiority from gender perspective. There is a lot of type of good wife but there is nothing about type of good husband :-P.
How about you ? Trust or no, it’s all up to you.
My wife read this post and asked me, "Do you think I’m a good wife from Katuranggan perspective ?". I said, "With or without Katuranggan, you’re my dearest wife" 😀
