Abstract

This study discusses the meaning of puji saji in Sura offerings at the Tirta Amerta at Candi Sumberawan Toyomarto Singosari Malang. Puji saji is a mandatory offering that is served in this ritual. This study uses an anthropological linguistic approach that utilizes semiotic theory and an emic-ethic approach. The data obtained from the caretaker of Candi Sumberawan and cultural experts in Singosari were then analyzed using the Lyons triangle of meaning. The results showed that there were fifteen puji saji that could be calcified based on the form: crops, food, beverages, fragrances, spices, and equipment. The whole meaning of the puji saji in Sura offerings is that in life, humans must be able to be in harmony with themselves, fellow humans, nature, ancestors, and remember God. In order to unify all these things, humans must tolerance, determination, a noble mind and character. The strategy for naming and eating the offerings is based on three things, namely (1) sign, an acronym of the concept or philosophical meaning to be achieved, (2) the significatum representing the concept or philosophical meaning to be achieved, and (3) the concept or philosophical meaning to be achieved in accordance with the function of the sign.
