OPENING WANAMARTA FOREST
In the Javanese puppet story, the Amartha country is a country known as the land of the five Pandavas. In the beginning, this country was the Mertani Forest, which was a wilderness known as haunted and became the location of the genies gathered. This forest is also called stealth forest because it is often the location of spirits gathered.
Once, when the Pandavas returned to Astina after escaping from the event of Bale Sigala-gala, Destarata, on the advice of Patih Sengkuni, they gave part of the territory to the Pandawa in the form of Mertani Forest or Wanamarta. What really is just a cunning trick Sengkuni in an effort to get rid of the Pandavas. Mertani forest is a forest that is very haunted and there is a jinn work, with the hope that the Pandavas will die when this pedestal is left.
On the way to Wanamarta forest, Arjuna was confronted by the Wilawuk receipt, the giant genie. Regarding the Wilawuk receipt or Wilwuk receipt there is a story that anchoret Wilawuk is a great dragon, a dragon that has a long and strong pair of wings. The not bad thing is we respond to the two versions, and we conclude, anchoret Wilawuk is a giant genie, who can turn into a dragon. anchoret Wiawuk asks Arjuna to follow the receipt of his Wilawuk membership, the Pringcendani hermitage. Arjuna rises to the dragon, and the Wilawuk dragon flies to Pringcendani hermitage. Arriving at Pringcendani Stages, he was introduced to his route, which was beautiful and beautiful, he was named Dewi Jimambang … He was beautiful to the angel of heaven. Wilawuk’s session saw the two men falling in love, the resipun married. After the marriage, the Wilawuk receipt gave a cupu containing lenga (oil) Jayengkaton The usefulness, whoever smeared oil Jayengkaton there are two eyes, it will see the subtle nature, which will see all the jinn and his kingdom. Receipt also rewarded the Jalasutera Kencana heritage after all the needs were completed, Arjuna said goodbye to go to the Wanamarta forest. To speed up the trip to Wanamarta, Resi Wilawuk also gave Kuda Ciptawilaha and Kyai Pamuk whip. Long story short Arajuna has left for Wanamarta.
The struggle of the Pandavas began by opening the Mertani forest. They also had to face the Jinn soldiers under the leadership of Arya Dandunwacana. Arya Dandunwacana was also assisted by Detya Sapujagad, Detya Sapulebu, Detya Sapuangin, and State Warfare Mertani. They also have their own skills and abilities.
While the Pandavas led by Bima continued to struggle with the help of Nakula and Sadewa. At 1st they were able to defeat the Jin soldier. However, when facing Arya Dananjaya, they also suffered defeat because they were entangled in the Golden Silk Mesh. They were later imprisoned in the State of Mertani.
But Bima, Nakula, and Sadewa also received help from Arjuna. Thanks to the properties of the ‘Jayengkaton Oil’ gift from Bagawan Wilawuk he can see creatures and stealth kingdoms to help the Pandavas.
Thanks to the oil, they can open the secret veil of Mertani’s forest, which is a stealth kingdom. This helped them in the battle through Jin soldiers to get the Mertani Forest. Therefore, even the warriors and kingdoms of Jin can be defeated by the Pandavas.
Arya Danduwacana himself was defeated by Bima. The fabric was united in Bima’s body after surrendering the Jodipati State. Then Arjuna defeated Danajaya and handed over the State of Madukara. Likewise with Detya Sapuangin, because he was defeated by Arjuna, Detya Sapuangin transformed into spell Arjuna. Therefore since then, Arjuna can run as fast as the wind.
On the other hand, Detya Sapujagad and Detya Sapulebu were defeated by Nakula and Sadewa. Each surrendered the State of Sawojajar and Bawenatalun. While Prabu Yudhistira himself is "be unitedl" in Puntadewa’s body. Since then, Puntadewa has changed its name to Yudhistira.
The State of Demon Mertani has since been defeated and turned into a country that can be seen by ordinary eyes. The Mertani forest was later made a large and magnificent country and changed its name to Amarta State.
