The contents of the credo are as follows:
1. Awareness of Science
Science occurs because of the existence of phenomena in nature and awareness in humanity. Because of this, awareness of science is only complete when it is reconciled with the reality of nature. This is the return of science to nature.
Because we do not live alone, we are involved in society and culture; between ourselves and nature there is always society and culture. Thus for that reason, the return of science to nature must pass through society and culture. This is the true way of humanity.
It is impossible for good science to destroy society and become counter cultural, because in such cases it is impossible for science to return to nature. Thus, legitimate science must protect society and culture.
Further, good science must strengthen the energy of good relations between people. This energy is compassion. Without compassion, human relations are dry and oppressive. Compassion brings humans closer to nature because compassion is the essence of the life force, the essence of growth, and the essence of healing. Without compassion we will be unable to return science to nature.
We of Persatuan Gerak Badan silat will return our science to nature through will and action, to defend humankind, defend culture, and preserve the flame of compassion.
