CANTO 71-72

[Canto 71]
  1. Three-winds-sun Shaka (1253 = 1331 A.D.) had been the beginning of his worship's taking into his lap all the burden of the whole world. He died in that Shaka-year tastes-bodies-sun (1286 = 1364 A.D.). Distressed were the Princes, dejected, mournful. Verily in Their sublimity of mind they were not covetous, loving the universal world. Minding the state of existence (on earth), that it is inconstant, punya (good works) only was [what was] had at heart every day.
  2. Concerning [at] the Princes' conference: our lord, the honoured Prabhu's Fathers, two, These were assembled (there). Our lord's Mothers the honoured two, unseparated, and the Prince's younger sisters too, both; the honoured consorts followed (them). They discussed the honoured one who might know all virtues and sins of the Royal servants, to take the place of the honoured apatih (grand-vizir). It was talked about at great length; no one [there was who] was taken delight in [in their hearts], which aroused sadness, stinging.
  3. The Princes held the policy that not to be replaced was, precisely, the sumantri apatih (eminent mandarin grand-vizir). In the absence of anybody who could take his place, when there were made difficulties, then the world there (outside) was to be ignored. Only [the] amatyas (well-born people), virtuous, having to tell all concerns regularly to the Princes, were to be chosen. They were to be trusted in reporting on ways and means (expedient) for seeing into common dissensions, without erring.
[Canto 72]
  1. So, at the end of Their conference, secret, the essence of Their deliberation, showing discernment, was: as werddhamantri (senior mandarin) was chosen now the honoured arya (Honourable) Atmaraja, having for name pu (Sir) Tanding.
  2. Unseparated: the companion of the Princes the honoured arya (Honourable) Wira Mandalika, named pu (Sir) Nala, (both) to the virtuous and the unvirtuous, in (bringing) good things and in repression, clever, as mancanagara (territorial authority), bearing the name Tumenggung.
  3. A scion of the eminently virtuous, manful, most faithful (is he), everlastingly chief of the Royal servants on expeditions. So (the people of) other countries, by name Dompo, were exterminated by Him in crowds; he inflicts losses upon the enemies.
  4. Two, now, are the concerns of the honoured excellent sumantris (eminent mandarins) : (to be) our lord's hands and feet is the purpose, nothing else, (and) to bring in all difficulties of affairs. Then, they shall have for company sumantris upapattis (eminent mandarins assessors).
  5. The honoured patih (vizir) Dami now is that yuwamantri (junior mandarin), the honoured one called rakryan (Right Honourable) in the Interior of the Royal compound, unseparated with patih (vizir) Tihang bearing the name pu (Sir) Singha, to be a witness of all the Princes' commissions.
  6. In this manner was (established) the Princes' order. The delight was lasting, consolidated was the world then. Faithfulness and submissiveness the more increased. Our lord's mastership is the cause of it in this manner.
