Saya amat bertuah dapat tinggal di Malaysia dan berbangga memanggilnya kampung halaman saya. Malaysia membolehkan saya untuk menjadi diri saya, meneruskan minat saya dan bertemu dengan insan-insan yang baik. Bertahun yang dahulu, salah seorang guru dan pelindung saya, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche dari biara Gaden Shartse, meminta untuk saya berada di sini. Pada waktu itu saya tidak memahami kenapa, tapi saya kini sudah mengerti. Saya bersyukur telah dihantar untuk tinggal di Negara yang penuh dengan macam-macam peluang, dapat bersama dengan rakan-rakan yang baik hati dengan persekitaran yang bagus. Saya sangat menghargai kepelbagaian dan kekayaan kebudayaan yang ada di Malaysia. Sebagai contoh perayaan Hari Wesak. Hari ini disambut di seluruh dunia, tetapi di Malaysia, hari ini juga merupakan hari cuti umum.

Perayaan Hari Wesak, juga dieja Vesak, merupakan hari untuk penganut Buddha menyambut tiga peristiwa penting dalam kehidupan Buddha Shakyamuni yang bersejarah, iaitu hari keputeraannya, pencerahan agung sewaktu umurnya 35 tahun dan kemangkatannya di umur 80 tahun. Fahaman Buddha itu sendiri boleh dikelaskan sebagai sebuah falsafah dan agama. Sebagai sebuah falsafah, ia mengajar kita cara menjalani kehidupan seharian dan sebagai sebuah agama ia mengajar kita untuk menghapuskan penderitaan dan mencapai matlamat untuk menjadi seorang Buddha. Adalah tidak mustahil untuk menghapuskan penderitaan dari fikiran kita dan apabila tercapai peringkat ini, ia dipanggil Nirvana. Hari kejadian Buddha mendapat pencerahan atau mencapai nirvana, disambut oleh penganut Buddha seluruh dunia, kerana kita semua juga berhasrat untuk mencapai tahap yang sama. Hari Wesak disambut untuk mengingatkan kita kepada matlamat kita dan sekaligus tujuan kita beramal serta menghubungkan setiap individu dengan potensi Buddha dalam diri mereka. Ia bukan hanya sekadar sambutan, bahkan merupakan ruang peringatan spiritual dan peluang untuk perubahan sebenar dalam diri kita.

Agama Buddha merupakan salah satu daripada agama tertua dunia, berusia lebih 2,500 tahun dan diasaskan oleh Buddha Shakyamuni, seorang putera dari Utara India. Berbanding dengan tanggapan sesetengah orang, beliau bukanlah watak dari lagenda tetapi merupakan seorang tokoh sejarah. Buddha bermeditasi memikirkan hakikat kehidupan, tentang kewujudan, masyarakat dan keluarga, dan beliau sedar bahawa segala yang kita lakukan dalam kehidupan seharian membawa kepada kesedihan dan keperitan. Beliau sedar bahawa kita terus melakukan perkara yang sama tanpa disedari, membuta-tuli meneruskan kitaran kesedihan dan keperitan.

Menyedari hakikat ini, dan atas kebesaran rasa belas kasihnya, beliau mengajar kaedah dan cara-cara untuk kita menangani kehidupan seharian, cara kita melihat dan berinteraksi dengan persekitaran dan orang lain. Beliau mengajar kita bagaimana untuk menukar reaksi kita untuk mengurangi kesedihan dan keperitan yang kita hasilkan. Matlamat seseorang penganut Buddha adalah untuk mencapai pencerahan, agar kita tidak menambahkan lagi kesengsaraan untuk diri sendiri mahupun yang lain, dan apabila kita telah mencapai tahap tersebut, untuk kita turut membantu orang lain untuk mencapainya juga. Ianya tentang menghapuskan kesengsaraan dari kehidupan kita sendiri terlebih dahulu dan kemudiannya dari kehidupan yang lain. Oleh kerana itulah, pentingnya menghormati seluruh makhluk, haiwan, manusia, budaya dan cara menjalankan kerja. Ini amat ditekankan dalam ajaran Buddha.

 

Asal-usul Wesak

The auspicious birth of Prince Siddhartha

Hari bertuah kelahiran Putera Siddhartha

Menurut sejarah kehidupan Buddha dan cara penyampaian cerita sastera India kuno yang berdasarkan kasta, Putera Siddhartha Gautama adalah dari puak pahlawan Shakya yang dilahirkan secara ajaib dari rusuk Permaisuri Maya saat baginda menumpang berehat pada sepohon Sara, dalam perjalanan baginda pulang ke istana ayahanda dan bondanya. Menjadi kebiasaan para wanita pada ketika itu untuk pulang ke rumah ibubapa mereka untuk bersalin. Dalam perjalanannya, baginda berhenti untuk berehat di sebuah hutan yang dipenuhi bunga-bungaan yang cantik, dengan kicauan burung dan burung-burung merak cantik mengembangkan ekor mereka yang mengagumkan. Lokasi ini kini dikenali sebagai Lumbini, Nepal, sebagaimana penemuan arkeologi terbaru yang mendakwa telah mengenalpasti lokasi sebenar tempat kelahiran Putera Siddhartha.

Sebelum kelahiran Putera Siddharta, bondanya, Permaisuri Maya dari puak Shakya telah bermimpi didatangi seekor gajah bergading enam yang turun dari kayangan. Gajah itu berkulit seputih salji dan belalainya membawa sekuntum bunga teratai yang cantik. Diletakkannya bunga teratai itu ke dalam rahim Permaisuri Maya dan terus ghaib ke dalam perut baginda bersama-sama bunga itu. Apabila terjaga dari mimpinya, baginda dipenuhi kegembiraan dan ketenangan.

Keesokan harinya, Raja Shuddhodana, kekanda kepada Permaisuri Maya, memanggil mengadap kesemua ahli alim ulama dari seluruh jajahannya untuk menafsirkan mimpi tersebut. Mereka memutuskan bahawa permaisuri sedang sedang hamil dengan seorang putera yang bakal menjadi seorang guru atau ketua. Takdirnya, antara menjadi seorang guru spiritual yang hebat dan menyebarkan kebenaran dan jalan untuk mencapai syurga, atau seorang raja yang hebat dan berkuasa yang akan memerintah ke segenap kawasan.

Putera Siddhartha dan Channa meninggalkan istana

Meneruskan kisah, putera itu dilahirkan penuh petanda bertuah tetapi membesar terkurung dalam istana diraja kerana raja merasakan tepat untuk puteranya menjadi seorang pemerintah yang hebat berbanding seorang guru spiritual. Kemudiannya, putera itu terlihat empat pemerhatian penting, iaitu usia tua, penyakit, kematian dan zahid pertapa berkelana. Melihat semua ini, putera itu menyedari satu-satunya cara untuk menghentikan penyakit, usia tua dan kematian adalah untuk mengabdikan hidup sesorang itu untuk mengejar pencapaian spiritual dan akhirnya mencapai ‘pencerahan’ atau menjadi seorang Buddha, kewujudan yang bebas dari bentuk-bentuk penderitaan tersebut. Pertemuannya dengan seorang tua, seorang yang sakit, sekujur mayat dan zahid pertapa meninggalkan kesan yang mendalam dalam mindanya. Begitu mendalam kesannya sampaikan baginda nekad untuk meninggalkan istana dan pergi bermeditasi di dalam hutan sehingga baginda dapat menemui jawapan yang dicari, dan kaedah untuk menghapuskan penderitaan yang dilihatnya.

Walaupun dengan pelbagai cubaan dari raja untuk menghalang putera itu dari meninggalkan istana, baginda berjaya melarikan diri pada waktu malam bersama pengiring rapatnya Channa dan juga kudanya. Secara misteri, kesemua pengawal dan pengiring istana nyenyak tidur semasa baginda melarikan diri ke hutan. Sebaik selamat sampai ke pinggir hutan, baginda memotong rambut panjangnya, sebagai simbolik melepaskan kehidupan kebendaan dan menyerahkan persalinan dirajanya kepada Channa untuk dipulangkan ke istana.

At dawn, Siddhartha attained the varja-like concentration and removed the final veils of ignorance from his mind. Immediately after that, he became a Buddha - a fully enlightened being

Subuh itu, Siddharta mencapai tahap penumpuan varja dan membuka selubung kejahilan terakhir dari mindanya. Sejurus kemudian, baginda menjadi seorang Buddha – kewujudan penuh pencerahan

Dengan penuh nekad untuk mempelajari kebenaran realiti, putera itu menuntut dengan dua orang guru bernama Alara Kalama dan Uddaka Ramaputta. Baginda malah menjalani pertapaan intensif selama enam tahun dan hanya memakan sebutir nasi sehari. Satu hari, semasa sedang bermeditasi di bawah sebuah pohon, Siddhartha terdengar perbualan antara seorang pemuzik tua dan perantis mudanya di dalam sebuah sampan di sungai berhampiran. Pemuzik tua itu memberitahu muridnya jika tali alat muzik itu terlalu tegang, ia akan terputus, manakala jika terlalu kendur, ia akan berbunyi sumbang. Sebaik mendengar kata-kata itu, Siddhartha sedar pertapaan adalah satu jalan yang keterlaluan dan salah. Baginda bangun menuju ke sungai dan membasuh dirinya serta mengambil secawan susu untuk memulihkan tenaganya. Selepas itu, baginda duduk di bawah pohon Bodhi dan bernekad untuk tidak bangkit sehingga baginda mendapat pencerahan penuh. Baginda mendapat pencerahan penuh di bawah pohon Bodhi di usia 35 tahun, dan seterusnya dikenali sebagai Buddha Shakyamuni, permata puak Shakya.

Selama 45 tahun seterusnya selepas pencerahan penuh Buddha, baginda tidak berhenti menyampaikan Dharma kepada semua yang ditemuinya. Apabila mencapai usia 80 tahun, Buddha mendapat sakit kuat dan menunjukkan tanda-tanda pemergiannya. Ananda, sepupu dan pembantu peribadi kepada Buddha, memintanya meninggalkan ajaran akhirnya kepada sangha, dan katanya:

“Oleh itu Ananda, jadilah pulau untuk dirimu, pelindung untuk dirimu, tidak mencarinya pada yang lain; dengan Dharma sebagai pulaumu, dengan Dharma sebagai pelindungmu, tidak mencarinya pada yang lain.”

Di Kushinagar, di antara dua pohon Sal, Buddha baring di atas rusuk kanannya, dengan kepalanya menghadap ke utara dan bertongkatkan tangan kanannya. Walaupun bukan musimnya, pohon-pohon Sal itu berbungga dan kelopak-kelopaknya gugur menaburi tubuh suci Buddha. Setelah memastikan ahli-ahli sangha-nya tahu mereka juga mampu mencapai pencerahan, Buddha pergi ke alam kewujudan tenang nirvana. Kata-kata terakhirnya adalah:

“Semua benda yang terbentuk akan hancur. Berusahalah dengan tekun.”

 

Hari Wesak di Malaysia

Di Malaysia, terdapat dua cara yang meluas digunakan untuk menyambut Wesak, iaitu memandikan Buddha dan menyertai Perarakan Hari Wesak. Bentuk utama Buddha yang digunakan untuk ritual itu adalah berhala bayi Buddha. Bentuk Buddha Shakyamuni yang ini memakai kain cawat dan tangan kanannya menunding ke udara. Mengikut kisah hidup Buddha, Putera Siddhartha Gautama dilahirkan bersih dan berseri. Sejurus kelahirannya, putera ini telah mengambil tujuh langkah. Bunga teratai muncul mekar di tanah yang telah dijejaki oleh putera ini. Dia mengangkat tangan kanannya dan menunding ke udara sementara tangan kirinya menunding ke tanah dan berkata:

“Akulah ketua di dunia,
Tertua aku di dunia,
Terutama aku di dunia.
Inilah kelahiran terakhir.
Kini tidak ada lagi yang akan mendatangi.”

Berhala bayi Buddha ini selalunya akan dipamerkan dihadapan altar utama di tokong, di dalam besin dipenuhi air dan bunga-bungaan. Para penganut akan menyiram air ke atas berhala tersebut sambil membaca serangkap doa. Upacara mencurahkan air ke atas berhala ini melambangkan pembersihan perbuatan negatif penganut itu sendiri. Selain itu, ia melambangkan kelahiran Buddha di mana tuhan-tuhan di kayangan memberi persembahan kepadanya. Upacara memandikan Buddha ini kebiasaannya dapat dilihat amalannya di tokong-tokong Buddhis Cina Mahayana di Malaysia.

Perarakan Hari Wesak berlangsung di merata tempat di Malaysia. Antara yang paling penting serta menarik ribuan orang ramai dan pelancong, dijalankan di ibu Negara Kuala Lumpur, Pulau Pinang dan Melaka.

Di Kuala Lumpur, perarakan terbesar bermula di Tokong Buddhis Maha Vihara di Brickfields, melalui laluan sebelum kembali ke tokong. Sebelum perarakan, penganut Buddha dari tokong-tokong yang berlainan akan menghiasi kereta perarakan yang membawa berhala-berhala Buddha dari tokong mereka, dengan hiasan lampu, bunga-bungaan dan sebagainya. Sesetengah dari kenderaan ini turut membawa sami-sami dari tokong mereka yang akan memberkati mereka yang mengambil bahagian dalam perarakan tersebut.

Bagi mereka yang ingin menyaksikan permulaan perarakan ini adalah dinasihatkan untuk tiba ke kawasan sekitar Brickfields sekurang-kurangnya tiga jam sebelum perarakan bermula. Jalan-jalan di persekitaran akan mula sesak sebelum perarakan bermula. Tempat terbaik untuk menyaksikan perarakan ini bagi pelancong yang berada di sekitar Bukit Bintang adalah berhampiran bangunan HSBC di Jalan Sultan Ismail, sementara mereka yang di sekitar Chinatown/Jalan Petaling boleh menyaksikan perarakan ini di hadapan bangunan Pasar Seni. Sewaktu perarakan ini kembali dari KLCC, mereka di Chinatown/Jalan Petaling boleh menyaksikannya sepanjang Jalan Pudu berhampiran Pudu Central.

Nilai setiap perbuatan baik yang dilakukan pada hari ini akan dilipat gandakan, malah sehingga 100 juta kali. Oleh sebab itu, waktu ini sangat sesuai untuk kita mendedikasikan diri kita untuk melakukan perkara-perkara yang positif untuk diri kita dan orang lain. Sebagai seorang penganut Buddha, selain daripada mengambil bahagian dalam ritual, berdikir dan melakukan perbuatan baik pada hari Wesak, kita juga harus membuat iltizam untuk mempelajari amalan dan falsafah Buddha, untuk memahami pengajaran dari Buddha, memahami kehidupan dan ajarannya, dan menggunakannya dalam kehidupan kita untuk mengubah minda dan sikap kita terhadap persekitaran dan orang lain.

Sambutan Perayaan

Aktiviti-aktiviti semasa hari Wesak bermula dengan berdikir dari sutra-sutra suci, pembacaan mantra-mantra serta nyanyian gita puja memuji Tiga Mustika Permata: Buddha, Dharma dan Sangha. Ini kerap kali disertai dengan persembahan-persembahan bunga-bungaan dan lilin. Aktiviti selainnya termasuklah perbuatan-perbuatan spiritual positif mengikut tradisi Buddha seperti bermeditasi, pembacaan doa-doa, menziarahi kawasan-kawasan suci yang berkaitan dengan Buddha seperti Bodhgaya, menziarahi guru-guru spiritual, bertahbis selama sebulan, menyelamatkan haiwan dan membuat perkara-perkara amal.

Ramai penganut kuat Buddha melakukan pemakanan vegetarian sehari sebelum hari sebenar perayaan untuk membersih dan menyucikan diri mereka secara fizikal untuk Hari Wesak. Di samping itu, para penganut juga akan melepaskan haiwan seperti kura-kura, ikan dan burung merpati. Perbuatan ini memberi haiwan-haiwan tersebut kebebasan daripada dibunuh, diseksa, dan dikurung tanpa kerelaan, selain menjadi isyarat simbolik membebaskan semua makhluk hidup dari penderitaan, yang juga merupakan matlamat yang hendak dicapai oleh seseorang penganut Buddha dalam amalannya.

The practice of animal liberation is adopted by Buddhists as one of the good deeds to be performed on Wesak Day

Perbuatan melepaskan haiwan diangkat oleh penganut Buddha sebagai salah satu amalan baik untuk dilakukan pada Hari Wesak

Buddha Shakyamuni merupakan seorang putera yang cintakan keamanan, pendukung kasih sayang dan belas ihsan yang merangkumi setiap makhluk yang hidup. Baginda sedar, setiap makhluk yang bernyawa mempunyai rasa sedih, gembira, sayang dan ambil berat. Oleh kerana itu, untuk meraikan belas ihsan Buddha, dan keinginan kita untuk memupuk rasa ihsan tersebut, kita memlepaskan haiwan-haiwan ini sebagai peringatan untuk memberi diri kita sepenuhnya kepada orang lain tanpa mengharapkan ucapan terima kasih sebagai balasan. Inilah makna sebenar dengan menjalani pemakanan vegetarian dan melepaskan haiwan tersebut. Kita boleh melepaskan burung-burung, lembu yang telah dikenalpasti untuk disembelih, ikan-ikan, serangga atau apa saja jenis haiwan yang kita mahu. Malah kita juga boleh memberi derma kepada rumah orang tua, anak-anak yatim, kepada mereka yang bergelandangan, kepada mereka yang kurang upaya atau memberi pakaian dan mainan kepada kanak-kanak yang kurang bernasib baik. Kita boleh melakukan kesemuanya dalam menyambut hari ini, kerana Hari Wesak bukanlah hari untuk kita menerima, sebaliknya ia adalah hari untuk kita memberi.

Terdapat dua peringkat untuk kita memberi penghormatan kepada Buddha: secara luaran dan secara dalaman. Secara luarannya kita boleh membuat persembahan bunga-bungaan, lilin, air, teh, colok dan melakukan penyembahan. Ini merupakan cara yang baik untuk memberi penghormatan kepada Buddha. Apabila kita memberi persembahan dan menunjukkan hormat kepada Buddha, kita mewujudkan tenaga dan penyebab untuk kita sendiri menjadi Buddha di masa hadapan. Apabila kita memberi penghormatan kepada tubuh Buddha, kita berhasrat untuk mencapai tahap kewujudan tubuh yang diberi pencerahan dan bebas dari penyakit. Apabila kita membuat persembahan lilin kepada Buddha, kita membuat persembahan untuk menghilangkan kegelapan, oleh itu kita mewujudkan penyebab supaya kejahilan kita akan disingkirkan dan hikmah kita akan bersinar terang. Memberikan persembahan colok membawa bau harum. Dalam tradisi India kuno, bauan harum melambangkan kita menjaga ikrar dan akhlak baik. Oleh itu, memberi persembahan colok membuatkan sebab untuk hidup penuh seimbang dan bermanfaat dengan menjaga akhlak mulia. Apabila mempersembahkan makanan, kita berdoa agar segala makhluk di dunia dan di alam lainnya bebas dari kelaparan, keperitan, kemiskinan dan penyakit. Oleh sebab itu, dalam ajaran Buddha, apabila kita memberi penghormatan kepada Buddha, ia adalah untuk menjadikan sebab untuk mengatasi keperitan dan menggalakkan kita untuk menumpukan perhatian kepada keperluan orang lain melebihi keperluan kita sendiri.

Membuat persembahan lilin kepada Buddha

Secara dalamannya pula, cara terhebat untuk memberi penghormatan kepada Buddha adalah dengan mengurangkan ciri-ciri yang mendatangkan derita, kesengsaraan, persengketaan dan kesusahan kepada persekitaran dan orang lain di sekeliling kita, dari dalam diri kita. Kerana itulah penganut Buddha melakukan amalan-amalan baik pada Hari Wesak, untuk menghasilkan sebab dan merit untuk mencapai tujuan tertinggi perubahan spiritual – supaya akhirnya mencapai Buddha.

Jika tiada tokong yang berhampiran dan kita tidak dapat untuk pergi ke tokong, kita boleh menyediakan tempat pemujaan peribadi di rumah kita. Di tempat pemujaan itu, kita boleh letakkan berhala Buddha yang cantik. Kita bukanlah bersembahyang kepada berhala tersebut tetapi sebaliknya menggunakan berhala tersebut untuk mengingatkan kita kepada nilai-nilai Buddha yang kita ingin capai. Kita boleh membuat persembahan kepada tempat pemujaan ini dan membuat penyembahan. Kita boleh duduk di hadapan tempat pemujaan dengan selesa, mendikirkan sutra-sutra atau membaca doa-doa mengikut tradisi Buddha yang kita ikuti, sama ada dalam bahasa Cina, Tibet atau Inggeris. Jika kita lebih berusia, kita boleh duduk di atas kerusi, jika tidak di atas bantal kusyen atau di atas lantai.

Kemudian, secara dalamannya, kita bertafakur memikirkan perbuatan kita sepanjang tahun sebelum Wesak yang telah mendatangkan musibah kepada orang lain, merenungi perbuatan negatif kita dan mengapa kita melakukannya. Kita memikirkan dengan jelas dan sebaiknya bahawa dengan memberi penghormatan kepad Buddha, kita mengubah nilai-nilai negatif dalam minda kita supaya kita kurang membawa keperitan untuk diri kita dan orang lain. Untuk mengakhiri sesi, kita buatlah satu azam yang utuh kepada Buddha untuk melaksanakan apa yang telah kita janjikan dan mengubah diri kita kepada yang lebih baik. Meditasi ini boleh dilakukan di tokong selepas membuat persembahan atau selepas kita selesai sesi berdikir. Inilah cara yang terbaik untuk meraikan Wesak.

Tokong-tokong

The first World Fellowship of Buddhists Conference in Sri Lanka, 1950

Persidangan pertama Persaudaraan Buddhis Sedunia di Sri Lanka, 1950

Di Malaysia, Hari Wesak disambut oleh penganut Buddha di seluruh negara. Ia juga disambut hebat di negara-negara di mana ajaran Buddha diamalkan secara meluas seperti Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Singapura, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia dan Laos. Semenjak ajaran Buddha diperkenalkan di barat, penganut Buddha di sana juga turut meraikan sambutan ini. Walaupun hari Wesak telah disambut sejak berabad lamanya, keputusan untuk menyambut Wesak bagi meraikan tiga peristiwa penting dalam kehidupan Buddha, hanya diputuskan secara rasmi pada tahun 1950 di persidangan pertama Persaudaraan Buddhis Sedunia di Sri Lanka. Ketetapan itu berbunyi:

“Bahawa Persidangan Persaudaraan Buddhis Sedunia, dalam merakamkan ucapan terima kasih diatas perkenan Yang Amat Mulia, Maharaja Nepal dalam menitahkan hari bulan penuh Vesak sebagai cuti umum di Nepal, dengan ini memohon dengan ikhlas agar Ketua-ketua Kerajaan yang mempunyai penganut ajaran Buddha, sama ada kecil atau besar bilangannya, untuk mengambil langkah untuk menjadikan hari bulan penuh dalam bulan Mei sebagai hari cuti umum untuk menghormati Buddha, yang tersohor diseluruh dunia sebagai salah seorang penyumbang terbesar kepada Kemanusiaan.”

Hari Wesak disambut berdasarkan tarikh qamari atau kalendar bulan di mana tiga peristiwa penting itu dikatakan terjadi. Ia disambut pada hari yang berlainan di negara-negara yang berlainan disebabkan perbezaan dalam kalendar bulan tempatan. Mengikut kalendar qamari-suria (gabungan bulan dan matahari) Asia, tarikh Hari Wesak disambut dalam bulan Vaisakha mengikut kalendar Buddhis dan Hindu. Kerana itulah ia juga dikenali sebagai Vesak. Tarikhnya berbeza setiap tahun kerana setiap tadisi Buddhis yang berlainan menggunakan kalendar bulan yang berbeza-beza untuk menentukan tarikh tersebut. Hari Wesak di Jepun, Korea dan China kebiasaanya jatuh pada tairkh 8 April setiap tahun. Sebaliknya, negara-negara seperti Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand dan Singapura menyambutnya pada bulan Mei.

Setiap tahun di Malaysia, perayaan Hari Wesak bermula sejak subuh di tokong-tokong Buddhis di seluruh Negara. Bergantung kepada tradisi yang diikuti, para penganut Buddha selalunya berkumpul di tokong-tokong untuk menjalankan amalan-amalan baik. Ini termasuklah mengamati lapan ajaran Mahayana, melepaskan haiwan, membuat persembahan kepada sangha, menyalakan lilin, mengangkat sumpah vegetarian dan memberi perlindungan, memberi kepada yang memerlukan, bersedekah kepada tokong-tokong untuk acara-acara Dharma, membina dan menyelenggarakan tokong dan sebagainya.

Di Kuala Lumpur, ini termasuklah Tokong Buddhis Maha Vihara di Brickfields, Tokong Buddhis Thai Chetawan dan Rumah Kechara di Petaling Jaya dan Tokong Buddhis Sri Lanka di Sentul. Di utara Malaysia pula terdapat Persatuan Buddhis Butterworth di Pulau Pinang, sementara di pantai timur semenanjung Malaysia terdapat Tokong Buddhis Wan Fo Tien di Kuantan. Di sebelah selatan Malaysia terdapat Tokong Seck Kia Eenh di Melaka yang pernah menganjurkan perarakan Hari Wesak yang telah disertai oleh 10,000 orang, sementara di Kuching, ibu negeri Sarawak di Timur Malaysia, Tokong Buddhis Poh Ka amat terkenal dengan aktiviti-aktiviti sambutan mereka.

Rumah Kechara diasaskan oleh Yang Mulia Tsem Rinpoche ke 25 pada tahun 2000. Ia merupakan organisasi Buddhis Tibet yang merupakan sebahagian dari tradisi Gelug yang diasaskan oleh Lama Tsongkhapa. Dengan matlamat dan visi untuk memelihara tradisi ajaran-ajaran yang berharga, Yang Mulia telah mengilhamkan dan membina Kechara Forest Retreat yang damai dan moden di Jalan Chamang, Bentong dalam negeri Pahang, Malaysia. Lebih dikenali sebagai ‘Tokong Lama’ oleh penduduk tempatan, ia merupakan tempat untuk penyembuhan, yang memberi manfaat secara fizikal dan spiritual kepada orang ramai.

Sewaktu perayaan Wesak, para penganut melawati kedua-dua tokong di Petaling Jaya dan juga pusat wacana harmoni (retreat) di Bentong untuk mengambil bahagian dalam pelbagai aktiviti seperti melepaskan haiwan, mengamati lapan ajaran Mahayana dan mengambil sumpah vegetarian.

Tokong Seck Kia Eenh, Melaka

Since 1960, Wesak day celebrations in Melaka have been organised by Seck Kia Eenh Temple. The Wesak Day Parade in Melaka attracts many people as it is believed that the late Venerable Ananda Mangala Maha Nayaka Thera would bless the parade vehicles on the eve of Wesak day.

Tokong Seck Kia Eenh, Melaka

Sejak 1960, sambutan Hari Wesak di Melaka telah dianjurkan oleh Tokong Seck Kia Eenh. Perarakan Hari Wesak di Melaka menarik ramai orang kerana dipercayai mendiang Yang Mulia Ananda Mangala Maha Nayaka Thera akan memberkati kenderaan perarakan pada malam sebelum Hari Wesak.

Perayaan Wesak disambut selama tujuh hari berturut-turut di Tokong Seck Kia Eenh. Antara aktiviti yang dijalankan termasuklah pengamatan lapan ajaran Mahayana, ceramah Dharma dan berdikir. Selain itu, tradisi suci ‘Pindapata’ diikuti di mana orang ramai membuat persembahan makanan kepada sangha.

Sebelum perarakan bermula, para penganut akan berkumpul di Tokong Seck Kia Eenh dari jam 5.00 petang untuk turut sama berdikir bacaan doa dan kemudian akan berdiri di samping kenderaan perarakan masing-masing. Pada jam 7.00 petang, perarakan bermula dari tokong di Jalan Gajah Berang, melalui Jalan Tun Perak, Jalan Pengkalan Rama ke Jalan Laksamana menyeberangi jambatan Tan Kim Seng dan bergerak melalui Lorong Hang Jebat, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock (Heeren Street) dan akhirnya melalui Jalan Tengkera, sebelum kembali ke tokong. Lebih daripada 30 buah tokong dan persatuan Buddhis menyertai perarakan tersebut yang akan berakhir jam 10.30 malam. Sambutan ini bagaimanapun akan berterusan sepanjang malam dengan pelbagai dikir doa di tokong.

Kesimpulan

Begitu baik melihat perayaan yang indah ini telah bertapak di Malaysia dan diintegrasikan dengan budaya tempatan namun masih mengekalkan intisari dan kepentingannya. Wesak telah diiktiraf meluas di negara-negara berpegangan Buddha dan tidak di seluruh dunia, namun di Malaysia ia juga merupakan satu hari cuti umum. Sambutan Wesak merupakan sambutan meraikan kebaikan, ketenangan dan belas ihsan kemanusiaan itu sendiri. Sebagaimana ajaran Buddha, menerusi penghormatan kepada Buddha, kita berusaha untuk memperbaiki diri sendiri untuk mencapai nilai-nilai hidup tersebut.

Kita perlulah menghormati tradisi keagamaan orang lain tanpa mengira agama apa yang kita sendiri anuti. Malaysia merupakan satu contoh baik penerimaan dan toleransi agama kerana penganut agama Buddha diberikan kebebasan untuk meraikan hari yang suci ini. Setiap orang berhak mendapat kebahagiaan, belas ihsan dan kasih sayang yang setara tanpa mengambil kira kepercayaan mereka. Kita harus berpegang kepada pemikiran ini dan dunia pasti akan menjadi aman. Beginilah cara kita harus menyambut Wesak – untuk mengukuhkan azam kita untuk menjalani hidup yang kurang dengan penderitaan, mengubah minda kita, mengamalkan sifat ihsan dan membawa keamanan dan keharmonian kepada seluruh umat manusia.

    Hope many more Malay readers and speakers will be able to understand about Wesak day which is an integral celebration for Buddhists. I do feel Buddhism adds a lot of dimensions and diversity to Malaysian culture and society.

    Rejoice to all the families who had setup a Buddhist altar at home and conducted a house blessing puja. There are diverse benefits of conducting the house blessing puja, which ranges from bringing well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – to purifying the home. The puja ceremonies will purify the environment which helps the people who live there and people who are visiting there to experience general well-being. The puja can be personalised based on the request or need of the individual. Thank you for sharing with us the many photos of the beautiful altar of these families, it is very heartwarming to know that they will always be blessed by the Three Jewels.

    金泽“财王”护法殿

    在禅修林的入口处的左边有一间小佛堂,是全天候二十四小时开放给大众的。这间佛堂的一砖一瓦都是由不同善心人士捐增的。也因为他们过后发了一笔小财,所以在大马文东,金泽护法一般被简称为“财王“。

    根据佛陀教诲,五蕴是组成众生的五个方面,分别是色、受、想、行、识。证悟者如多杰雄登能将五蕴分别化现成不同的本尊。金泽是多杰雄登“受”蕴的化现,作用是协助我们增长世俗和修行上的财富。“受”蕴是我们对愉悦或不悦感受的认知。我们执着于愉悦,避免不悦,而这正是导致我们受困和造下各种业,继而产生痛苦的因(此段原文: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6d7edf5f0102x1n6.html)

    来到这里,我们首先要上香。做生意的朋友可要趁此机会拜拜,供养一个大的莲花蜡烛,上三根大香,祈求今年一帆风顺哦。

    Can’t imagine that a priest actually stabbed Pope John Paul. How can he do this when he as a priest is suppose to be compassion and love everyone but kill the religion leader. he should remember that he carries the name priest and hence must show good example and behaviour to others but instead took another person’s life.

    I respected Pope John who continued his trip even though he was injured. That shows the determination he had to teach so it can benefit others. Always put others first more than our own needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is admirable for Sine Lindholm & Mads Ulrik Husum to place their design as open source for everyone to download and copy to manufacture. This shows how farsighted they are in propelling self-sustainability. The first step is always the hardest, and I believe what Sine and Mads had done is towards the right direction. In this way, people from all the around the world who genuinely are passionate and interested in growing own vegetables will be able to start on their own. Without needing to rely on middleman or manufacturer who might end up making the brilliant idea a commercial white elephant. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

    Superb idea and very creative. Home farming in the cities ! Appreciate all the hardwork and ideas to produce Growroom. It’s just like putting a big puzzle and making the whole process so much easier to plant in cities where we always have limited spaces.

    We should support more people to come up with such ideas so we can eat our own food and cultivate self sustainability.

    When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime.

    Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind’s energy to let go and we cannot.

    Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim.

    Amazing and very creative architecture designed space for our home grown foods.It is a good idea for those living in the cities.The Growroom is beautifully produced made it convenience which enables people to connect with nature surrounding with plants. The smell of herbs and plants makes cities dwellers to live in happiness and healthy.
    Its takes alot of effort and determination for anyone to build a growroom.Well they can do it,if they have the will power….hoping someday KFR will have one too.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Grigoris asked: Excuse me, but I would like to ask, what does the prayer to Shangmo Dorje Putri say exactly? I can't read Tibetan, but would like to see the description that the prayer gives. I am not planning to say the prayer or make interaction(as it would be very dangerous), but would like to see what it actually says from the Tibetan text. Here's the link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/shangmo-dorje-putri-the-bamo-of-sakya.html
    pastor answered: Dear Grigoris, Thank you for your question. Shangmo Dorje Putri is indeed a fascinating unenlightened Dharma protector. Unfortunately at the moment, we do not have a translated copy of the text in English that we can provide. The usual format for such texts, would include an invocation, making offerings to appease them, and then exhortations for them to perform their activities, possibly followed by thanking them for their help. One thing is for certain, due to the nature of Shangmo Dorje Putri her prayer is sure to include violent imagery, just like many other Dharma protectors, such as Achi Chokyi Drolma (who even though has a peaceful appearance, has a lot of violent imagery in her prayers). The reason behind the violent imagery is explained in the post about Achi Chokyi Drolma here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/achi-chokyi-drolma-chief-protectress-of-the-drikung-kagyu.html
