Examples of Attitudes in Accordance with the 5th Precept – Pancasila is the idealism and foundation of the Indonesian nation.

There are many attitudes that can be applied as a form of practice of the 5th precept Pancasila values that can be practiced by every Indonesian citizen. The following is a collection of the practice of Pancasila values, especially examples of attitudes that are in accordance with the 5th precept in practicing Pancasila principles in everyday life which will be thoroughly discussed as follows:
Get to know the 5th Precepts of Pancasila
As the basis of the state, Pancasila contains five important points that serve as guidelines for the nation and state. One of them is like an appeal to the 5th precept of Pancasila which reads
“Social justice for all the people of Indonesia”.
The 5th precept of Pancasila is symbolized by the shape of rice and cotton. Both are symbols of basic needs and basic things for Indonesian people, regardless of their position, degree or status, so there is no gap between the two in terms of these needs as citizens.
The 5th Pancasila practice of the precepts, “Social Justice for All Indonesian People”, details practices that contain meaning and noble values. An example of an attitude that is in accordance with the 5th precept in practicing its values can be applied to the smallest environment, namely in the home or family, school, to the wider environment. Sudarmono explained through his book entitled Pancasila and Some Thoughts About the 1945 Constitution (1997). Important attitudes and practices of Pancasila can be broken down into practical points that guide the life of society and the nation.
In the opinion of PJ. Suwarno in Pancasila Budaya Bangsa (1993) reveals that Pancasila is the culture of the state, but the five commands are an inseparable unit, but in practice we can trace the differences in the strengths of each precept. There are still five, but not all commandments are of the same nature. As previously explained, the term Pancasila itself comes from Sanskrit which consists of two words, namely Panca and Sila. Panca means “5” and Sila means “base”, “principle”, or “principle”.
Soekarno, who later became the first president of the Republic of Indonesia, introduced the 5 Precepts on the last day of the meeting of the Investigative Body for Preparatory Efforts for Independence (BPUPKI) on June 1, 1945. In the speech delivered by Bung Karno, the name Pancasila was spontaneously sparked, as the following speech reads This:
“Right now, there are many principles for nationalism, the principles of nationalism, internationalism, consensus, prosperity, welfare and divinity, which are five in number. Its name is not Pancadharma, but I later named it according to the instructions of a linguist from our friends who called it Pancasila,” said Soekarno, whose speech was quoted in the BPUPKI Treatise (1995).
“Sila means principles, principles, or foundation, and based on these five principles, establish an everlasting and eternal Indonesian state,” he added, adding that he is a national figure and father of the Proclaimer. Therefore, Pancasila can be interpreted as a formula and guide in the life of all Indonesian people and nation.
This means that Pancasila is a reflection of the behavior of the Indonesian people in carrying out their activities as good citizens. The values contained in the Pancasila precepts are not formed haphazardly. Each precept has a very broad meaning in terms of positive goals in the life of the nation and state. one of them is the 5th Precept of Pancasila which has a noble value, namely justice applies to every citizen.
This means that it does not recognize position, degree, status, gender, age, and other types of classification. Justice is the right of every citizen. This is stated in Pancasila, which means it is a principle that must be upheld by its citizens so that all national activities can run well, with the value of justice upheld for all Indonesian people.

2. Pancasila Spiritualism by Heri Herdiawanto, Fokky Fuad Wasitaatmadja, Jumanta Hamdayama
Today, our country is in a nation and region with serious distortions in the life and administration of the nation. Ethnic conflicts, crime epidemics, conflicts between political elites, rampant occult corruption, and other actions that violate the basic rules and norms of the country. Due to various problems, people yearn for the ideals of Pancasila which have been abandoned so far. Pancasila is an ideology formed on the basis of the character of the Indonesian nation, multi-ethnic, multi-geographical and multi-cultural.
This book is here to provide new knowledge and understanding about the existence and immortality of Pancasila values. It is hoped that this book will help the younger generation, and Indonesian society in general, to refresh Pancasila and practice it in everyday life.
3. The Pancasila Philosophy: National Islamic Epistemology by Dr. Fokky Fuad Wasitaatmadja
Buya Hamka’s ideas as an Indonesian philosopher, pastor and writer are sufficient to fill the fields of thought in many parts of this book. This was deliberately disclosed by the author to examine the fresh ideas of Pancasila, which has the idea of Belief in One Almighty God as the backbone of Pancasila, and Buya Hamka, which is currently still very relevant to the concept of Islam.
Meanwhile, Soekarno, who is the father of the proclaimer, deserves the title of Indonesian philosopher. His ideas are fresh enough to explain the philosophical values of Indonesian nationalism and the spirit of Islam as a modern religion. According to Sukarno, Islam had become the burning coal of the struggle against the colonial Dutch East Indies. Capitalism has become a common enemy because it gave birth to the notion of oppression and colonialism, according to which Islam is the source of the Indonesian people’s struggle to destroy colonialism.
This book seeks to consider Sukarno’s ideas about Islam and Indonesian nationality. Soekarno’s ideas sometimes confronted Buya Hamka and Nazir in interpreting the meaning of the values of the Koran and the Islamic philosophy of Pancasila, but as fathers of the state, they understood the importance of Pancasila as the basis.
