Spirituality in the Silat

Share on :
In silat, kebatinan is internal and in the heart, hidden, and mysterious. This is the most difficult stage to achieve in learning silat. Kebatinan means one who searches to develop inner tranquility and the rasa diri (an intuitive inner feeling) through a method of self-submission. One may experience intuitively the divine prescnce of the Almighty residing within the heart. This is the awakening of the heart and a special knowledge like an unseen treasure that only those who recognize the essence of the Almighty can discover. The practitioner of kebatinan seeks to cultivate the true self, achieving harmony, and ultimately unity. Achieving kebatinan is quite strenuous; it is a search to develop good and noble character. It is a personal search of an intuitive connection to the Almighty, and a positive way of life. Kebatinan may be practiced in Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity,
or any other religious or mystical movement. Kebatinan for Muslims is steeped in the lslamic faith. Anything beyond that is considered as shirk (associating partners with Allah). In Silat, spirituality acquired through the practice of prayer, dhikr, or meditating.
