This paper analyzes knowledge about the truth (hakekat) in the Suluk Waleh text Br. 35 as part of the collection of the National Library, Jakarta. This text was written in the Javanese language and letters, with some Arabic words included. Suluk means perfect inner life and the mantra of the puppeteer. The Suluk Waleh text contains knowledge on truth and various other knowledge taught by teachers to their students. Knowledge about the truth refers to truth and true belief (how to know God). This knowledge can only be passed from teachers to their students, and students to other people, with love. This shows that the Suluk Waleh text, which was written in the past, is still relevant in the present, especially with regard to its moral teachings expressed in local wisdom, whose purpose is to develop moral character.
