Badak, the Rhinoceros. Rhinoceros Sumatrensis. Badak may be derived from Bada, C455, the belly, the abdomen, and Ek C, 85. One- This Ek in Singhalese coalesces with the word to which it relates at the end, and when such word terminates in a vowel like Bada, the é of ék is dropped, an only the k suffixed, thus Bada = Badak, which though not a current Singhalese word for a Rhinoceros, means „One Belly”, and would apply very well to an animal of which the belly forms so conspicuous a part.

Fr.).

It never builds up houses or passages of earth like the common Rinyu or white ant. It is a variety of Termes. Wajra C 616 a thunderbolt in general, or the thunderbolt of Indra-crystal, glass- Hard, impenetrable, adamantine. Perhaps both the limestone and ant have their origin or their name in this word.

In mariners Tonga Islands London 1818- in the vocabulary occurs "Malai, a piece of ground, generally, before a large house, or chief's grave, where public ceremonies are principally held”.
- Bālā, C. 469 is pure, clean, free from blemish, or defilement; fit to be offered- and Bālā-ya = Balai would be the object fit to be offered, or the offering. It is strange that this Sanscrit word, or its modification should have found its way into the distant Pacific islands (22).

Bali, the island next to Java on the East, where the Hindu religion found refuge, and continued to be observed after the fall of majaphahit on Java, and the consequent introduction of Mohammedanism. A sort of Hinduism still exists on Bali. Mr. Friederich considers that the word Bali is of the same origin as Bantam, which see- and fancies that Bali was a sort of holy land of the Panditas, devoted to religious purposes and offerings, which in short the word implies.

This is the native axe or hatchet, which is probably made after the model of stone axes, before iron was known. The shaft has a bit of the wood at right angles, at one end, for which purpose a piece of wood with its root has been selected. Round this projecting head- piece is fixed a bit of buffaloe hide, sewed together with thongs, which are also cut out of hide; and between the hide- cap and the wood, the head of the axe, which is a long spike of iron, is driven in. This spike turns round with a good knock, sideways and so the blade can be easily set at any angle to the shaft, and form, as may be desired, an axe or even a cooper's adze; and when set at any intermediate point, is found very useful for dubbing down wood.

Roorda published at Amsterdam in 1847 gives this word Bantan, as implying-instrument, means; an offering. In Balinese Banten is an offering; and Bantenan are collective offerings. Mr. Friederich considers Bantĕn, to be a Krama or refined form for Bali, which by Clough's dictionary, Page 463 implies, Propitiatory offerings, religious gifts or sacrifice- which meaning Mr. F. is of opinion would apply to the island of Bali, since the same meaning attaches to the word Bali in Sanscrit. Mr. F. fancies that Bali was a sort of holy land of the Panditas, devoted to religious purposes and offerings, for which same purpose Bantĕn had originally been employed, but as such was destroyed by Hassan Udin, on the introduction of Mohammedanism. Other words in Javanese make a transfiguration as strange as Bali = Bantĕn, as for instance Kari = Kantun. T. Roorda, Page 172, to remain over; a remainder. Kirim = Kintun. T. Roorda Page 180. to send; any thing sent.

As an infant he was thrown away into the Krawang river in order to get rid of him, but being saved by a fisherman, was restored when grown up, and became Sovereign of Pajajaran, under the title of Chiung Wanara. The name of the „Frightened Goose” has no doubt reference to his having been cast a drift on the river.

Barat, the west-Barat is a word very generally used for West, not only in Sunda, but in Malay and Javanese. The Sunda people have also a still more commonly used word, viz kulon of the same import. It strikes me that Barat may have a Sanscrit origin from Bahinawa, C. 466 to go down, to set as the Sun- or more probably the first syllable of this word Ba, which is also heard in Badiya C. 468 from Ba and diya water, the ebb or reflux of the tide, low-water.

Batang, appears to be a nearly obsolete designation for a Deity, or for some superior being connected with old superstitions. The word is still in use among the Badui of South Bantam, who still adhere to a form of worship partly derived from Hinduism, or the former religion of the Javanese. Thus they talk of the Patang Jala or Batang Jala, as one of their chief divinities, and with them occurs the expression, when they are in difficulty or much fatigued, of Hari Batang tulung Maung. The word Batang may be a corruption of Batara which see. Wata, C. 617 among other numerous meanings has that of "a Tiger, the Bengal tiger" or the Tiger Royal. The initial W in the Polynesian tongues is often commuted for B. This mutation is also known in Singhalese, Clough Page 454 under the letter B says — "Considerable difficulties arise from a custom which has gained both among authors and Copyists substituting the B for W and vicê versa” a final ang is also frequently added to words, by which the original Wata would become Batang. This appears to be the more probable as this Hari Batang is associated with Maung; the colloquial Sunda word for the Tiger Royal. Batang may also be a corruption of Déwata, with the initial Dé dropped, and ng suffixed. Hari, C. 787 is derived from Hara to take, and is a name of Krishna or Vishnu, Yama or Indra, and the expression Hari batang tulung maung will thus mean — „Oh God Krishna, help me oh Tiger”. Batang Jala may mean the God of magic or delusion. Jala C. 210 magic, conjuring, illusion, supernatural deception. Throughout Java till this moment the natives have a superstitious reverence for the Tiger royal, and will not hurt or kill it, unless it first has dosa or sin, and has killed a human being, or some of his Cattle. Batang is the name of a place and districts on the north coast of Java in the residency of Pakalongan, where the Prahu mountains come down near the shore. In these same Prahu mountains are found many remnants and remains of temples from Hindu times, and the name of Batang may perhaps be in some way connected with the Divinities there formerly worshipped. Another name of a place in this locality which attracts attention as being of Hindu origin is Sraman near Simbang. Clough Page 778 gives Sramana, from Srama to perform acts of austere devotion- an Ascetic, one devoted to meditation for the purpose of obtaining final emancipation from existence; a Buddhist ascetic, a beggar, a religious mendicant, a Buddhist priest.
Batang may also be explained as derived from Bata C. 455 descent, going down, descent from a hight. To the Sanscrit Bata the Polynesian Ng may have been added as a termination, and Batang may mean the low land, the low country along the foot of the lofty and sacred Prahu mountains, see also Balibat.
Batara, The Hindu Godhead. The Sundanese apply the designation to all the divinities, as Batara Guru, the chief Hindu God worshipped on Java, Batara Bisnu, Batara Gana or Ganesa &c. Guru among the Hindus was a kind of spiritual guardian of youth, one of the names of Brihaspati, the preceptor of the Gods - Clough Page 178. Batara Guru, however, on Java appears to have been the chief Hindu Deity worshipped, But whether Siwa or Vishnu is not evident. Crawfurd dissertation on Malay Page 238 says that, on the authority of Professor Wilson, no doubt the Hindu god intended was Vishnu.
Awatara, C. 5k awa, down, tara to cross or pass: a descent, this word is used by most of the oriental nations to express the incarnation of their deities, or their descent from heaven to Earth; and in Hindu history it particularly refers to the incarnation of Vishnu in ten principal forms, viz 1, the fish- 2, tortoise- 3 the boar- 4 the man-lion- 5 the dwarf- G and 7 the two Ramas 8. Krishna- 9 Buddha, and 10 Kalkisee Bisnu. (Cf. Oesana Bali Tdsch. Ned. Ind. IX. 3.257. Fr.).

Bauh or Bahu, a measure of land, of which four make one Jung. Bahu, C. 470 the arm. The Bauh recognized by government on Java contains 500 square Rhinelands roods or Tumbaks of each 12 × 12 = 144 square Rhineland feet = 72.000 square Rhineland feet. Now as 0.94310 Rh: feet = 1 Eng: 72.000 or 1 Bauh = 76344 square English feet per Bauh, or a trifle more than 13 English acre of each 43.360 English square feet.
Bauh, the fifth in descent, the father counting first; and the terms for each relationship are thus expressed; Bapa, Anak, Inchu, Buyut, Changgah or Chénggéh and Waréng. These four last terms appear to be inversely used, thus the Bapa will call the 14th generation from himself, his Bauh, and that same Bauh will allude to the same Bapa as his Bauh. These lines complete seven generations, which the natives designate as tujuh turunan, and which in general is considered very ancient, and when property is at stake, if it has been in the family for seven generations, it amounts to what we call prescription.

On Bali, according to Fricderieh Bat. Trans. Vol 23 Page 10. Bela is the burning of a wife in a fiery hole, separate from her husband. Into this she jumps without krissing herself. Béla has been described by Crawfurd as implying Retaliation, but as far as I (Friederich) can learn, the Bali meaning of the word implies rather the Sanscrit welā, sudden and easy death (Wilson). This becomes plain from the manner in which it takes place, also from the circumstance that the attendants of a chief who has been killed in battle, and who make an amuk and die with him, are also called Béla. In general in Bali the word implies „the act of dying with a superior", as the wife with her husband, the slave with his master, the attendant with his lord. This word is probably derived from Billa, C. 473, a sacrifice of animals to demons, or an offering made in honour of deceased ancestors. In Malay it means to accompany in death ; the voluntary sacrifice of a woman at the funeral of her husband — or it may come from Béla, C. 478, power, strength, force, might.

Biang! is an exclamation of surprise, either denoting fear or admiration. Also denoting mistrust, and at the same time half putting the question : Do you think I am such a fool as to believe you? This word is probably of Sanscrit origin, and would be properly represented by abhi hyang! which will mean „the Profound Divinity.“ „The superlative divinity.“ Abhi, C. 39 is a preposition implying similarity, before (in the presence of), separation, severally, wish, desire; also, Conjunction, as belonging to, with respect to etc. Abhi in Compound words implies very, emphatic, before, as Abhikkanta, C. 39 from Abhi, very, kanta, good excellent, good in the highest degree. Abhinya, C. 39 from abhi very, nya Knowledge, profound knowledge, supernatural acquirements. And in the same manner we may form Abhi hyang, the most excellent Divinity, the supernatural Divinity. So also may be explained the name of Abiasa, one of the early sovereigns of Java, see Raffles Vol 2. P. 80. from Yasa, C. 572, fame, glory, celebrity, renown, thus Abhi-yasa, renowned in the highest degree. So likewise in the words Abiseka, which is still current on Bali for the anointing of the Rajahs. Abhi-seka, C. 40 from Abhi before, Sikta sprinkling, an anointing, royal unction; Sikta, C. 730 from Sicha to sprinkle, and kata affinitive-sprinkled, wetted. Abhirupa, abhi, emphatic, Rupa, beautiful, extremely beautiful. To return to the Sunda language we have Bianglala a Rainbow. Lala, C. 604 wavering, unsteady, fickle, Abhi-hyang-lala, the most excellent divinity who wavers or is fickle, from the evanescent nature of the rainbow. Abhi-hyang has here again been contracted into Biang. Raffles gives Yang-lalah for the Rainbow in Balinese.
That the Sundanese no longer dream of the real meaning of the word Biang! which is nevertheless so often in their mouths, is no wonder, seeing that they have been so long converted to Mohammedanism, and all that they almost know of the former worship of their forefathers is comprehended in the words Agama Buda.

Buda, Buddha; a name still retained by the Sunda people without any precise meaning, since they have become Mohamedans. They however still talk of Alam Buda, Buddhist times, as of an almost fabulous time, to which no definite meaning can attach. As a remnant of their old faith they still retain the Buddhist names for the days of the week, where Buda represents Wednesday, as in India. It is not, however, every man who can enumerate these days of the week; only some of the more knowing. See Dité. Buda, C. 475, the planet Mercury. It may be useful to copy over here what Clough gives at Page 475. Budha from Budha to know; the name of the founder of Buddhism, the religion which is professed by the Singhalese part of the population of Ceylon, the Burman empire, and several other nations of the East; a sage, a wise or learned man; a philosopher; any eminent or deified teacher. Great confusion has taken place among Sanscrit writers and the Europeans who have followed them, by confounding Buddha which is a generic name for a wise man, a philosopher, with Buddha (Gautama) the son of Suddhodana, and the founder of the religion which goes by his name. Gautama Buddha died at Kusinara - Nuwara, near Oude at the age of 81 years, in the year before Christ 543.

In particular it is found in Cashmere. On Java and Bali there existed an adoration of serpents (Vasuki) and the Bujangga's appear originally to have been worshippers of reformer of Indian absurdities. Every body knows Buddha is not the name but the title acquired by the son of Cuddhodana, But Budha is one of the till now rather mysterious persons of unrcformed Hindu Mythology, whose coming into existence depends upon the decision at what time the week of seven days first was invented, or when the next planets became known to the Indians. Budha appears at the head of the lunar race of Kings of India. Fr. serpents, who afterwards coalesced with the sect of Siwa. Bat. Trans. Friederich Vol. 23 Page 48.

Bukit, This word is properly Malay, and means a hill, not a mountain. It occurs in only two solitary instances in the Sunda districts, as applied to mountains, and these are the Bukit Tunggul and Bukit Jarian, two mountains in Bandong. Bukit Tunggul means „ Stump Hill"; it is on the boundary line between the Pamanukan Estate and SumSdang. The tradition of the ecountry says that here was felled the tree which was to form the Prahu which is supposed to still exist in the adjoining Tangkuban Prahu y which see. The Bukit Tunggul is a rather conical hill and bears a rude resemblance to the stump of a fallen tree. It is strange that these solitary instances of Bukit should occur in the interior of the Sunda districts, surrounded by otherwise purely Sunda names. Had it been on the coast, we might have imagined some ancient Malay colony settled near it. As it now is, it looks as if the Sunda people had hunted a name out of a foreign language to designate a mountain which it appeared to them anomalous to call a Gunung, with the word Tunggul jz: stump of a tree, affixed to it.

Bulu they say is the name of a particular Ficus called in the Sunda districts Bunut, to which the leaf bears a resemblance; and Ongko is an abbreviated form of Nongko, nangka, the Jack fruit tree, because the fruit resembles it. In most books the famous Poison tree of Java is said to be called Anchar, antiaris Toxicaria; that name having been assigned by either Leschenault or Horsfield. Anchar may be the name in some districts, but I have never been able to hear of the word any where on Java.
