The core principal of Setia Hati is the educational philosophy of noble character who lived by the kadhang SH, based on the heritage of Indonesia which is usually stated in wings sentences, in the language and terms that full of symbolic meaning.
Demands of life (way of life) who lived by the SH philosophy that is based on SH doctrine, should easily be seen and felt good and useful by fellow alive, so it will stimulate others to follow or at least appreciate it. Then be SH beings as persons of good behavior, way of life it can be used as examples and role models.
The philosophy of Setia Hati which has been written by SH older brother “Munandar Harjowiyoto” is as follows:
Real human beings and all contained in the universe, there is created it is God Almighty. That man, since he was in his mother’s womb, then, was born, lives, become adults, have the knowledge and skill, enjoying the richness and emotional and physical well-being (until he left this world), is due to the dependence of others, also by the Almighty God’s mercy .
That the virtuous and humane is the know appreciate the kindness and help of others, eager to do good and put the interests of society as a reciprocation and gratitude to fellow life and also as a charitable devotion to God Almighty Creator, the Almighty, and All Offers .
The best devotion in the serve for God and the community is to practice living in harmony and brotherly love in real, prioritize and maintain safety along with a willingness to sacrifice very honestly.
One way to become a full human moral, humane and noble character who always side by truth is to constantly train themselves to purity or pure of conscience, and maintain emotional and physical strength by understanding the philosophy of life “Setia Hati” and the Pencak Silat ”Setia Hati”.
Pencak SH is tough enough when fully mastered and continually trained as a martial art of great value, as if it is still not reliable if not reinforced with a “Mutiara SH“, a kind of “inner power (tenaga dalam)” that can only be achieved by means of certain ways that are not easy to do. Thus was born the terms such as: Eerste trap, trap and deerde Tweede trap or level I, II, and III, which is still valid in the Persaudaraan Setia Hati “Panti” in Winongo Madiun, Persaudaraan Setia Hati Terate and the Persaudaraan Setia Hati Winongo Tunas Muda .
Munandar Harjowiyoto deceased in his speeches, is focused to the deepening of noble character who must constantly internalized and practiced based on the belief in God Almighty. Repeatedly asserted:
That which is necessary for us God’s people, every second we have to remember God, believe without reserve (double) on the power of God, Almighty Creator of everything in it. Without blessing and the clause of God, man can not do anything right. Human SH therefore obliged to draw closer to God by faith or their religious teachings and should be able to feel the presence of God at every moment, anytime, anywhere, and the conditions and situations anyway. God is the place and pleaded with the blessing and God’s will, anything can happen, also the things which, according to the ratio and reasonable minds could not possibly happen. Human SH mandatory distanced arrogant character, because the human SH can not do anything without the clausal of God. He is just like a pencil, he could not write their own without anyone to write. Therefore he did not have to be sad and disappointed when the writing is bad and should not be proud if good writing. He just written.
That Setia Hati human must learn to thank, know the mind and tried to return the favor. Even more important is to do good, do goodness without expecting remuneration, that one can not live without public assistance. He is indebted to society, therefore, obliged to give back to the community that has provided assistance so that people can enjoy life in the midst of society. Was so proud when people are not grateful to people who have helped and did not devote themselves to the public. And more so very proud if people are not grateful and thankful to God who had given him all that he enjoyed.
Humans also may not feel that everything he have belonged to him. Soul of his body, his wife, his son, rank, and wealth is not his, because if God wants, it can disappear in the blink of an eye. Lots of advices that basically invites people to improve their serve to God, so it will eventually become a man who loves God more and more loyal to God with full devotion, with a Faithful Heart. Always feeling together with God the Almighty Creator, then the man who had SH, will no longer feel scared and worried in the circumstances anyway. There is no ally more power than God Almighty.
For Setia Hati Lord’s humans, that is all Mutiara-mutiara SH which is cultivated mandatory in order to be lived, owned, and practiced for the reply to God’s mercy. With that Mutiara-mutiara, the human SH would have a great emotional and physical strength and be able to carry out humanitarian and civic duties as well as possible. Mutiara-mutiara SH that need to be shared by all humans SH, without the need to hold any levels.Even if it needs to be disseminated to anyone without restrictions if he is member of the Persaudaraan Setia Hati or not, People who can have Mutiara-mutiara SH by itself will never abuse the martial arts skills, authority, and power that have, because they were contrary to the will of God.
Sapta Wasita Tama Persaudaraan Setia Hati (SHO) is a human behavior to achieve Mutiara SH, ie to live and practice his love of God, so that someday he can return to its sourcesafely. SH Humans who have Mutiara SH as it would have reached the level of “ora tedas pluning pande, tinatah mendat, jinoro menter, setan ora doyan, demit ora ndulit, kalis ing saliring sambekolo”,the intention is a strong emotional and physical and survivedthe next world.
