Do you know, what is Pramuka?
Pramuka is one of the big organizations in Indonesia. It is not only in Indonesia, but also in this world. We call it SCOUT MOVEMENT. Every country has a name for the organization of scout, and the name of Indonesian’s Scout is Pramuka.
The Scout Movement (Gerakan Kepanduan) in the world is based on following principles, there are Duty to God, Duty to others, and Duty to Self. Duty to God means that a scout member has a relationship with the spiritual values of life, the fundamental belief in a force above mankind. Duty to Others means that a scout member has a relationship with and responsibility within, society in the broadest sense of the term, his or her family, local community, country and the world and at large, as well as respect for others and for the natural world. Then, Duty to Self means that a scout member has a relationship to develop his or her own potentianl, to the best of his or her ability.
In Pramuka, We call it Kode Kehormatan or Honor Code. Kode Kehormatan are norms and promises in awareness to know more about a character in a person’s heart based on moral provisions and based on principles of scouting.. Kode Kehormatan divided in two types, there are the Scout Promise and Law (Trisatya and Dasa Dasrma).
The Scout Promise (Trisatya) is promises that a scout members promised. Tri means three and Satya means promise. So, Trisatya is three promises. Trisatya sounds :
