Karagatan (In Philippine Literature) is literally an "open sea". This came from the legendary practice of testing the mettle of young men vying for a maiden's hand. The maiden's ring would be dropped into the sea and whoever retrieves it would have the girl's hand in marriage. This is one of the secular dramas generally held during the nine nights of vigil and prayers after someone's death or the first death anniversary when the family members put away their mourning clothes.
