Ke hadapan sahabat-sahabat di seluruh dunia,

Saya telah menetap di Malaysia selama lebih 20 tahun dan sejak itu saya mula menghargai kepelbagaian budaya dan adat resam Malaysia. Selama itu, saya menikmati budaya dan adat resam yang wujud di Malaysia, di mana ia telah memberi inspirasi kepada saya untuk berkongsi dengan lebih lagi mengenai aspek-aspek Malaysia yang memperkayakan lagi budayanya.

Salah satu tradisi tersebut ialah Gawai Dayak, pesta menuai yang diraikan secara meluas oleh kaum Dayak di Sarawak dan Kalimantan, masing-masing sebahagian daripada Malaysia dan Indonesia di Kepulauan Borneo. Rencana ini akan tertumpu kepada perayaan Gawai Dayak di Sarawak dan kami akan membawa anda melalui asal-usulnya, aktiviti-aktiviti yang diadakan semasa pesta dan bagaimana pengunjung dapat mengambil bahagian dalam perayaan ini.

Masyarakat Dayak di Sarawak terdiri daripada dua kelompok etnik utama, Iban dan Bidayuh serta beberapa puak kecil seperti Murut, Kelabit, Kenyah dan Kayan. Sarawak mempunyai populasi Iban tertinggi di Borneo, yang mana sekitar 745 400 orang atau 28% dari populasi negeri (berdasarkan kaji selidik pada tahun 2016) adalah orang Iban. Kelompok etnik Bidayuh yang juga digelar Dayak Darat kerana mereka secara tradisi tinggal berhampiran pergunungan batu kapur, kebanyakan mereka menetap di kawasan Selatan Sarawak. Walaupun kepercayaan asal orang Dayak kebanyakan pada Paganisme, majoriti orang Iban dan Bidayuh telah menganut agama Kristian.

Secara tradisinya, keluarga Dayak tinggal di Rumah Panjang, disamping beberapa keluarga yang lain. Setiap rumah panjang mempunyai Tuai Rumah atau ketua rumah panjang, ketua rumah yang terpilih. Rumah panjang yang agak kecil mempunyai lebih kurang 10 hingga 30 buah bilik keluarga. Rumah panjang yang sederhana besar boleh menempatkan 31 hingga 50 buah bilik keluarga, manakala rumah panjang besar boleh mempunyai sehingga 100 buah bilik keluarga.

 

Sejarah Gawai Dayak

Masyarakat Dayak ketika perayaan Gawai Dayak di Sarawak, Malaysia

Gawai Dayak merupakan perayaan yang menandakan berakhirnya kitaran penanaman padi dan disambut oleh kaum etnik Dayak sebagai tanda kesyukuran ke atas hasil tuaian yang melimpah-ruah serta mendoakan hasil yang lebih baik pada tahun akan datang. Menurut Kementerian Pelancongan dan Kebudayaan Malaysia, perayaan ini “menjadi simbol perpaduan, aspirasi serta harapan bagi komuniti Dayak.” Penerimaan Gawai Dayak dalam kebudayaan Malaysia menunjukkan bahawa pihak berkuasa mengiktiraf kepelbagaian etnik penduduk Malaysia, dan menerima adat resam yang pelbagai bagi memperkaya budaya dan identiti Malaysia.

Gawai dalam bahasa Iban bermaksud “perayaan” dan Dayak ialah nama kolektif kumpulan etnik asli di Sarawak. Gawai Dayak disambut secara rasmi pada 31 Mei dan 1 Jun setiap tahun. Walau bagaimanapun, secara tradisinya perayaan ini diraikan sehingga hujung bulan Jun. Idea untuk meraikan Gawai Dayak pertama kali dicadangkan pada tahun 1957 oleh dua orang pengacara radio tempatan, Tan Kingsley dan Owen Liang, dan cadangan mereka menerima sambutan hangat dari komuniti Dayak. Walau bagaimanapun, Sarawak masih dijajah oleh British ketika itu, dan Pentadbiran Kolonial British bimbang sekiranya membenarkan perayaan khas untuk komuniti Dayak, kumpulan etnik lain akan meminta pengiktirafan yang sama. Oleh itu, perayaan Gawai Dayak pada mulanya dikenali sebagai Hari Sarawak untuk melibatkan semua kumpulan etnik di Sarawak.

Pada 31 Ogos 1957, Malaysia telah mendapat kemerdekaan dari Britain dan pada 1962, Gawai Dayak diiktiraf sebagai perayaan orang Dayak. Pada 25 September 1964, setelah penubuhan Persekutuan Malaysia, 1 Jun telah diiktiraf sebagai cuti umum Gawai Dayak dan sambutan pertamanya adalah pada tahun 1965.

Persediaan: Makanan dan minuman

Apabila rumah panjang mengadakan Gawai Dayak, penghuninya hendaklah menyediakan makanan dan minuman terlebih dahulu. Mereka memastikan jumlah padi adalah mencukupi bagi menyediakan tuak, arak tradisional Dayak. Tuak ialah arak beras, dibuat dengan menyulingkan beras pulut dan ragi sebulan sebelum perayaan.

Kek sarang semut atau juga dikenali sebagai Sarang Semut

Tuan rumah mesti menyediakan kudapan and kuih tradisional seperti Kuih Sepit (wafer yang dilipat), Kek Sarang Semut, Cuwan (kuih beracuan) dan Penganan Iri (kuih berbentuk cakera). Kebanyakan kudapan ini, kecuali Penganan Iri, boleh disediakan beberapa hari sebelum dan disimpan di dalam balang yang kedap udara. Selalunya, ketua rumah panjang mengacarakan trip memancing dan berburu bagi mendapatkan daging untuk diperam bagi pesta tersebut.

Persediaan: Perhiasan rumah panjang

Sebelum perayaan Gawai Dayak, penghuni rumah panjang berganding bahu membersih, mengecat dan membaiki rumah mereka. Dinding di dalam rumah dihiasi dengan ukiran mural dan tikar rotan tradisional anyaman tangan juga dibentangkan buat para tetamu duduk.

Acara memasak diteruskan

Sehari sebelum Gawai Dayak, mereka yang terlibat di dalam pesta tersebut berkumpul pada awal pagi untuk mengumpul makanan dan ramuan yang diperlukan seperti minyak sawit, aping, sagu, umbut kelapa, rebung, pucuk ubi kayu, terung, midin dan sebagainya. Bahan-bahan ini akan digunakan untuk membuat sup serta sajian-sajian yang lain. Orang Dayak memasak beras pulut di dalam buluh yang akan menghasilkan satu aroma yang unik. Beras tersebut boleh juga dimasak menggunakan dapur gas atau periuk nasi. Setelah mengumpul bahan-bahan yang diperlukan, mereka yang terlibat memasak daging segar dan yang sudah diperam dengan pelbagai herba seperti serai, halia, daun bungkang dan garam. Tuak selalunya disajikan dengan daging panggang.

Penghapusan Sifat Tamak

Pada 31 Mei, sehari sebelum Gawai Dayak, dua lelaki dan dua kanak-kanak akan mengelilingi rumah panjang tersebut dengan sebuah bakul setiap seorang untuk mengumpul barang-barang yang tidak dikehendaki oleh keluarga-keluarga lain. Barang-barang ini kemudiannya akan dibuang di hujung belakang rumah panjang untuk menghapuskan roh tamak.

 

Penyembahan Dewa

Traditional Dayak offerings to the deities

Penyembahan dewa tradisional Dayak

Apabila senja menjelang, upacara penyembahan dilakukan di setiap bilik keluarga, di mana piring seramik, tabak (piala gangsa), dan bekas kulit buluh belah dipersembahkan kepada dewa. Menurut Sadin B dalam karya sasteranya, Raja Durong, orang Dayak mempercayai tujuh dewa utama:

  • Sengalang Burong – dewa peperangan
  • Biku Bunsu Petara – dewa keagamaan
  • Menjaya Manang – dewa perubatan
  • Sempulang Gana with Semerugah – dewa pertanian dan tanah
  • Selampadai – dewa pembuatan
  • Ini Inee/Andan – dewa keadilan
  • Anda Mara – dewa kekayaan

Dalam mendapatkan restu tuhan, orang Dayak merayu roh-roh yang telah membantu mereka terdahulu. Penyembahan dewa akan diletakkan di empat penjuru setiap bilik keluarga, di dapur, di dalam balang beras, di galeri, tanju (dinding beranda) dan di ladang. Harta lain yang berharga boleh juga diserahkan kepada dewa-dewa dan roh-roh.

Selain daripada memohon rahmat para dewa, orang-orang Dayak memohon kepada roh-roh yang telah membantu kepada mereka pada masa lalu. Persembahan kepada para dewa diletakkan di empat penjuru setiap bilik keluarga, di dapur, di dalam balang beras, di dalam galeri, tanju (serambi dinding) dan di ladang. Barangan berharga lain juga boleh dipersembahkan kepada para dewa dan roh-roh.

Tujuh persembahan tradisional tersebut merupakan tembakau daun nipah, buah pinang, daun sirih, beras pulut, ketupat, sungki (pulut yang dimasak dengan daun buwan), pulut nasi dimasak dalam batang buluh, kek Sarang Semut, kek teracu dan Penganan Iri (tepung pulut dengan nipah dan gula), beras bertih (beras pulut dipanaskan dalam kuali atau periuk), telur rebus, dan wain beras dalam bekas buluh kecil. Selepas persembahan dibentangkan, ketua rumah panjang mengetuai perayaan untuk menunjukkan rasa syukur kepada para dewa untuk tuaian yang banyak, dan meminta keberkatan, bimbingan dan kepanjangan umur daripada para dewa. Ketua rumah panjang kemudiannya menawarkan ayam yang telah mati kepada para dewa dengan memasukkan bulu pelepah ayam jantan yang berlumuran darah di dalam setiap set persembahan.

Selepas upacara persembahan selesai, semua keluarga rumah panjang berkumpul dan makan malam di balai. Aktiviti ini dipanggil makai rami atau hidangan perayaan. Setiap keluarga yang tinggal di rumah panjang menyumbang kepada hidangan perayaan ini. Sebelum tengah malam, perarakan untuk menyambut para dewa dan roh-roh dilakukan di balai. Kadang kala, penduduk rumah panjang juga menganjurkan pertandingan untuk memilih raja dan ratu Gawai, yang juga dikenali sebagai Keling dan Kumang Gawai. Orang-orang tua dan ketua rumah panjang kemudian memberikan nasihat tentang kepentingan keamanan, keharmonian dan ketenteraman. Denda dikenakan kepada mereka yang melanggar tradisi dan peraturan dengan bergaduh, bertengkar, berkelakuan mabuk atau vandalisme.

Anggota masyarakat Dayak yang telah memeluk agama Kristian tidak mengambil bahagian dalam upacara persembahan dewa. Sebaliknya, mereka ke gereja untuk menunjukkan rasa syukur mereka kepada Tuhan untuk tuaian sebelum kembali ke rumah panjang dan mengambil bahagian dalam sambutan majlis makan malam.

 

Makan malam

Pada tengah malam, gong dibunyikan untuk memanggil para tetamu dan penduduk rumah panjang. Ketua rumah panjang kemudiannya mengumumkan ucap selamat panjang umur (Ai pengayu), membaca doa untuk kebaikan, dan hadirin membalas dengan ucapan perayaan, “Gayu Guru, Gerai Nyamai, Senang Lantang Nguan Menua.” Sekiranya ada antara hadirin seorang penyair, beliau boleh diminta untuk membaca “timang ai pengayu” untuk memberkati air panjang umur. Semua konflik dan kesalahan masa lalu diampuni pada masa ini.

Persembahan yang kurang formal seperti tarian tradisional Ngajat (selamat datang), tarian pedang dan persembahan seni mempertahankan diri, dipersembahkan selepas makan malam. Bagi Dayak Bidayuh, mereka akan menari Tolak Bala (Tarian Menolak Bahaya), Tarian Sebelum Menuai untuk meminta perlindungan untuk masyarakat, Tarian Totokng untuk memanggil jiwa padi dan tetamu serta Tarian Langi Julang dilakukan di akhir pesta Menuai untuk menunjukkan rasa syukur kepada para dewa untuk tuaian yang banyak dan kesihatan yang baik.

Selepas makan malam, tetamu berbaris berdasarkan kedudukan sosial mereka. Kaum wanita menawarkan kaum lelaki semangkuk tuak disertai dengan nyanyian seorang wanita. Ini diikuti dengan bacaan puisi tradisional termasuk pelandai, ramban, pantun, jawang dan sanggai.

Ngabang

Pada 1 Jun, rumah-rumah panjang dibuka kepada Ngabang (tetamu). Majlis rumah terbuka juga boleh dianjurkan oleh penduduk rumah panjang, badan-badan bukan kerajaan atau persatuan masyarakat Dayak. Pelawat dan pelancong sering dijemput untuk menyertai Gawai Dayak pada hari ini. Apabila para tetamu tiba, kaum wanita rumah berdiri untuk menghidangkan air kepada tetamu dengan beberapa sajian tuak dalam tradisi Nyibur Temuai, seperti Nyambut Pengabang (minuman sambutan), Ai Aus (minuman penghilang dahaga), Ai Basu (minuman pencuci), Ai Untong (minuman keuntungan) dan Ai Basa (minuman penghormatan).

Dalam majlis rumah terbuka tersebut, ketua rumah panjang atau orang tua yang dipilih membuat jaku ansah atau ucapan mengasah untuk memperkenalkan tetamu kehormat. Selepas tetamu kehormat tiba, beliau dijangka untuk melaksanakan Muka Kuta (membuka kubu) dengan cara mengelar pagar buluh dengan pedang dan membaca puisi. Kemudian, seekor haiwan ditombak di kaki tangga (mankan). Pada acara itu, para penari Ngajat dan kumpulan muzik membawa tetamu ke tempat duduk masing-masing. Selepas semua orang duduk, ketua rumah panjang atau penyair membaca doa untuk tetamu sambil menggoyangkan ayam di atas kepala mereka. Sebelum makanan dihidangkan kepada para tetamu, ucapan khas yang dipanggil Muka Kujuk disampaikan untuk membuka kain tenunan tradisional yang menutupi makanan. Semasa aktiviti Bantil atau minuman memujuk, kaum wanita memberi minuman tuak kepada kaum lelaki sambil menyanyikan pantun tradisional (puisi) untuk mengatasi rasa malu kaum lelaki ini. Menjadi adat bagi kaum lelaki untuk menolak minuman pertama sebagai tanda hormat kepada tuan rumah.

Gawai Dayak juga disertai elemen ramalan nasib. Dalam aktiviti yang dipanggil uti, tetamu khas diminta untuk membuka kelapa yang diletakkan di atas pinggan seramik dengan menggunakan pisau tumpul, tanpa memegang kelapa atau memecahkan pinggan. Jika kelapa menunjukkan isi putih, bermaksud nasib yang baik, manakala isi hitam menunjukkan nasib buruk. Walaupun Gawai Dayak disambut pada 1 Jun, festival ini boleh bertahan selama beberapa hari hingga sebulan. Pada bulan tersebut, majlis perkahwinan Dayak sering diadakan. Untuk menandakan berakhirnya perayaan, tradisi Ngiling Bidai atau menggulung tikar tenunan tangan yang diletakkan pada awal Gawai Dayak dilakukan.

Keperluan pakaian

Apabila menghadiri perayaan Gawai Dayak, pengunjung boleh memakai pakaian tradisional Dayak, ngepan (busana tradisional), atau pakaian moden biasa. Biasanya, ketua rumah panjang memakai pakaian tradisional yang diperbuat daripada cawat, kulit haiwan, dan bulu merak di atas kepalanya. Sering kali, kaum lelaki dihiasi dengan tatu tradisional yang menunjukkan pengalaman mereka. Sebagai contoh, reka bentuk katak di leher depan, atau reka bentuk tegulun di belakang tangan menandakan bahawa orang itu telah membunuh orang lain dalam peperangan. Tatu tersebut juga boleh direka kepada bentuk hidupan laut yang menandakan perlindungan oleh unsur-unsur air.

Pakaian tradisional Dayak untuk kaum wanita merupakan kain betating, sejenis kain tenunan tangan yang dipakai di pinggang dan korset rotan di bahagian atas badan. Kaum wanita juga boleh memakai selampai atau selendang di atas bahu, atau rantai manik di sekeliling leher. Rambut mereka biasanya diikat dan dikemaskan dengan sikat tinggi. Mereka juga memakai lampit (tali pinggang perak), gelang lengan, gelang kaki dan dompet. Sekiranya anda ingin melawat, sila ambil perhatian bahawa Malaysia merupakan sebuah negara tropika, jadi kebanyakan orang yang memakai pakaian yang dibuat daripada fabrik yang ringan dan boleh nafas. Anda disyorkan untuk membawa beberapa baju nipis, seluar pendek dan skirt separas lutut, gaun, seluar panjang, cermin mata hitam, topi, baju panas dan sekurang-kurangnya satu skarf atau selendang. Anda juga boleh mempertimbangkan untuk membawa kasut leper atau kasut yang selesa.

 

Melawat Malaysia dan Sarawak

 

Dokumen perjalanan yang diperlukan untuk memasuki Malaysia

Pelawat yang ingin melawat Malaysia perlu mempunyai pasport dengan tempoh sah sekurang-kurangnya enam bulan. Warganegara ASEAN (Brunei, Kemboja, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Filipina, Singapura, Thailand dan Vietnam) boleh tinggal di Malaysia sehingga 30 hari tanpa visa Malaysia. Pelawat dari negara-negara lain boleh memohon visa terlebih dahulu atau memohon Visa Semasa Ketibaan (VOA) dengan kos RM 330 (USD 75). Baru-baru ini, rakyat Republik Rakyat China (PRC), India, Bangladesh dan Nepal telah diberikan kelayakan untuk memohon e-Visa.

    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.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

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
