Lan bangsing tiangé tis, nyegerang anak ané sakit krana encehné mananah. Carané, imbuhin tiang bawang adas, krana babakan tiangé panes, don ngudan tiangé dumalada.[example 1]
I am the Banyan tree (Ficus benjamina), and can act as a substitute for ‘Sang Hyang Surya Chandra’ (one of the gods in Hindu Mythology). The content of the substances of my flowers is cool. My leaves are hot, and can be used to treat people who have broken a taboo ( ‘pamalian’). My friend is the Cinnamon (‘Mesui’) plant. It can be used as medicine and commonly it is sprayed. The content of substances of my roots is cool; they are used to treat gonorrhea and urinary stones. Mix onion and fennel with the bark of my stem, which is hot, and my young leaves, which are medium.
Taru Bingin ring Pura Dalem punika ageng pisan.[example 2]
The Banyan tree in the Dalem Temple is very big.
