The Uttaraśabda is a relatively unknown work of the tutur genre. The multiple manuscripts that make up this work are located in both Java and Bali. This paper focuses on a text of the Uttaraśabda which originates from the Merapi-Merbabu scriptoria in Java that was active in the seventeenth century. In general, text of the tutur genre have both theoritical and practical dimensions. The surface structure of tutur texts consists of descriptions of theological and cosmological principles that have particular applications in ritual. In this study, we look at how theoretical and practical dimensions are reflected in the Uttaraśabda.
