Multiculturalism and cultural differences are the indeniable reality in both Indonesia and the world. Without wisdom such a condition can cause tensions, quarrels and conflicts. For this reason, investigation on the ethical principles contained in Keselarasan can provide foundations needed for peaceful coexistence which is crucial in such multicultural conditions as are prevalent in Indonesia.
Basic principles such as respect, peace, and empan papan (know how to place oneself) are fundamental for living in a multicultural situation. The ethical foundations in Keselarasan therefore contribute solutions to manage cultural difference and multiculturalism. These are the basic principles to avoid societal bloody conflict and to build togetherness and dialogue in peace.
