Ramalan Jayabaya

“Ramalan Jayabaya”, atau “Jangka Jayabaya” orang Jawa menyebutnya, dikenal dan dipercaya oleh kalangan sangat luas masyarakat Indonesia, khususnya masyarakat Jawa. Entah sejak kapan “ramalan” ini beredar di tengah masyarakat. Tapi yang pasti ia telah dan akan selalu berulang hadir pada setiap saat masyarakat di dalam kemelut. Entah kemelut karena sebab sosial-politik, entah pula karena adanya bencana atau musibah besar yang melanda. Orang boleh percaya tapi boleh juga tidak percaya, terpulang pada masing-masing dalam menyikapinya.

Penampilan naskah “Ramalan Jayabaya” di bawah ini tidak dengan maksud mengajak memasuki debat, percaya atau tidak percaya terhadapnya. Tapi semata-mata melihatnya, bahwa “Jangka Jayabaya” merupakan hasil karya sastra lisan berbentuk syair yang beredar luas dan melampaui berbagai jaman. Untuk disimpan sebelum ia punah oleh perjalanan waktu dan peristiwa.

Ada pepatah Jawa berbunyi “sadawa-dawane lurung isih luwih dawa gurung” - sepanjang-panjang jalan masih lebih panjang lagi kerongkongan. Itu suatu peringatan. Bahwasanya segala bentuk wacana yang disampaikan secara lisan, akan mengalami pengurangan dan penambahan terus-menerus. Mengalami pengausan. Timbul sangat banyak versi, oleh karenanya, sehingga pada suatu ketika versi-versi tua akan menjadi aus sama sekali, dan timbullah sekian banyak “makhluk-makhluk” baru.
Versi yang diturunkan di bawah ini, salah satu saja dari sekian banyak lainnya yang tak terbilang. Menilik isi dan bahasanya, termasuk salah satu versi yang mutakhir. Tidak ada di sini, misalnya, ungkapan yang mengatakan “ngalor ngulon abure si mliwis putih” (ke barat laut belibis putih terbang), konon ramalan tentang si kulit putih yang bakal terusir kembali ke negeri asal mereka di barat laut; atau ungkapan yang berbunyi “si cebol kate saumur jagung panguwasane” (si pendek katai yang berkuasa seumur jagung), konon ramalan tentang jangka waktu masa pendudukan Jepang.
Teks di bawah ini, jika ditilik dari sudut kebahasaan, bertebaran di sana-sini kata-kata yang bukan Jawa; seperti “nglanggar sumpah” (melanggar sumpah), bukannya “nerak sesanti”, “ngendahake hukum” (mengindahkan hukum), bukannya “nggatekake wewaler”, bahkan - di ujung teks ada kata yang terbaca “selot-selote” (pada akhirnya), yang sangat jelas berasal dari kata Belanda “ten slotte”.
Jayabaya salah seorang raja Kediri (1130-57), penerus Airlangga yang paling banyak dikenang, walaupun tentang masa pemerintahannya sendiri tidak banyak diketahui oleh sejarah. Ketika itulah Empu Sedhah dan Empu Panuluh diperintahnya menyadur Mahabharata Sanskerta ke dalam kakawin Jawa Kuno Bhratayuddha. Empu Panuluh juga menggubah kakawin Gatotkacasraya dan Hariwamsa, sebagai puja-puji persembahannya pada junjungannya Sang Mapanji Jayabhaya Sri Dharmeswara Madhusuddhama Wartamindita itu.
Jaman Kediri, khususnya semasa Kameswara (1115-30) dan Jayabaya (1130-57), memang merupakan jaman mas bagi perkembangan sastra Jawa Kuno. Karena itulah tradisi Jawa mengatakan, bahwa Raja Jayabaya telah meramalkan tentang masa keruntuhan kerajaannya sendiri, dan sekaligus tentang kebangkitan dan kejayaannya kembali di kelak kemudian hari. Ramalan tentang jatuh-bangunnya “Negeri Jawa” atau Nusantara.*
