Because the king of Kahuripan loved Empu Jatmika as his own child, then after he got old and died, his kingdom (Kahuripan) was named as the Kingdom Negara Dipa, the name of the area inhabited by Empu Jatmika. (Fudiat Suryadikara, Bahasa Banjar Hulu Dialect Geography, Department of Education, 1984).
The kingdom of Negara Dipa had subordinate areas, called Sakai, who
