九皇爷诞是马来西亚民间信仰文化里最热闹﹑最具历史的庙会活动之一。这项庙会由每年的华人农历九月初一开始至九月初九结束为止。

九皇誔是善信们一年一度集体持素的日子。 这段期间善信必须严持斋戒﹑打坐诵经,诚心念佛,以及给寺庙做供养累积福报。在庆典期间, 可见摊贩在毗邻市集售卖祭祀供品和食物,以便善信对庙宇神明供养。信众也相信在九皇诞虔诚礼拜,供养神明,茹素吃斋,有助消灾解厄、消除业障病苦、长生延寿。善信也乘此机会答谢神明往年赐予庇佑。

关于九王爷的传说,可以追溯至汉朝时代,道教正在发展之际。当时,盘据在中国南方之地的闽部落和越部落,精于蛊道巫术、咒术,甚至能布阵做法请鬼神。于二千多年之前秦与汉朝期间,褔建和广东彊地逐渐被纳入中央政权之际;闽越部族的文化也随之与南下定居,信仰道教的汉人融合起来。经历二千多年的时代变迁,今天的中国南方具有浓厚宗教文化气息,多元饮食文化及丰富独特建筑艺术,无不是从过去历史传承下来。直到后来,随着大量广东和褔建居民外迁南洋,甚至其他国家,这个民间传统文化也得以流传至世界各地。当中九王爷之信仰也被发扬光大,世代相传下来。

民众崇拜神明的民间信俗始于这段时期,礼拜习俗和祈褔仪式也相继在此时盛行。

信奉九王爷这个信仰,尤其盛行于东南亚地区的马来西亚、缅甸、新加坡、泰国和廖内群岛国家。现在至少有超过五十座九王爷庙坐落于马来半岛及马来西亚东部。基本上,这些寺庙每年都在九王爷誔期间举办丰富多彩的祭祀庆典,祈求九王爷的庇佑。最热闹的九王爷庙莫过于安邦南天宫,其次便是雪兰莪巴生直落玻璃凤山寺。

关于九王爷的历史典故

九王爷的传说和起源众说纷纭,到底信众所祭祀的是哪尊神? 相传九王爷是斗父国王周御天尊和斗母元君的九位儿子,随后成为信仰里的星君。那就是西方天文星座的北斗九星。

相传斗父和斗母掌控整个以北极为中枢的日月星辰,斗母更是九星的守护者,观察着九星的一切变化。在道教信仰里,普遍认为北斗九星不但管理了星辰与气候,也影响著一个人的运程。在中国五行中,北方代表五行学说中的“水”,“水”象徴了生命之始与结束;所以斗母一直被视为主掌人间壽夭的神明。从事海上工作的人员,普遍视斗母为海上神明,奉祀祈求能为其消灾解难。

一般人相信九皇就是北斗九星,由七颗明亮的恒星再加上两颗暗星组成的九星,有七现二隐的说法。九位北斗星君分別为:

  • 第一星 -- 贪狼太星君 (显星,拜耳命名法: α UMa)
  • 第二星 -- 巨门元星君 (显星,拜耳命名法:β UMa)
  • 第三星 -- 禄存贞星君 (显星,拜耳命名法:γ UMa)
  • 第四星 -- 文曲纽星君 (显星,拜耳命名法:δ UMa)
  • 第五星 --玉廉贞纲星君 (显星,拜耳命名法:ε UMa)
  • 第六星 -- 武曲纪星君 (显星,拜耳命名法:ζ UMa)
  • 第七星 --破军关星君 (显星,拜耳命名法:η UMa)
  • 第八星 --左辅大道星君 (隐星)
  • 第九星 --右弼大道星君 (隐星)

自九王爷信仰早期由中国发展至其他国家后,道教逐渐迈向衰落,敬拜斗父之仪式随之日渐消失。今天很多供奉九王爷的庙宇都没有置斗父像或祭祀斗父的庆典,因此现在已经没有太多人得悉斗父的存在。尽管如此,善信透过斗母的礼斗祈福仪式中,同时也向斗父祈求庇佑。民间普遍虔信拜斗会为自己及家人消灾解厄、消除业障病苦、长生延寿。

供奉斗父的圣坛

供奉斗父的圣坛

关于九皇爷的传说,民间流传著许多版本。其中一个版本是九王爷乃明朝一位劫富济贫的海匪。也有人相信九王爷其实是九位反清复明的正义之士,于农历九月初九在江边被清兵剿杀并将其斩首处决。或许是怨气太重,这几位烈士的阴魂长期徘徊于他们被处决的地点附近,常生事端。其后,满清朝廷为了平息阴灵干扰,遂赐于九位义士“九皇爷”之名,并送他们 (亡灵) 经海路离开中国。住在东南方的居民,为悼念这几位逝去的义士,在恭送“九皇爷”的船途经之处,特设灵坛迎灵。后来,沿海地带的人们都设置圣坛以示对“九皇爷”的敬意。

随着民间传说的发展,更相传九皇爷的头颅是被吊挂在椰子树上;因此,信众在九皇爷庆典期间,都会在竹竿上燃点“九灯”(九嵩灯) 为神明指路。每年的九王爷誔,还会在“九皇爷”被剿杀处举行送船出海仪式。显然,中国的九皇爷诞庆典,与东南亚的庆典确实存在很大程度的差异。

 

庆祝习俗与仪式

每年从农历八月最后一天开始,供奉九皇大帝的寺庙会进行隆重而严格的庆典仪式,祈求神明庇佑。由于信众都相信神明是由水路而来的,祭祀游行仪式会由庙宇出发至河边。虔诚的信众在庙会期间会穿上丧服,以示庄严悼念“九皇爷”,其他人则身披白衣,手持香火和蜡烛等待神明的驾临。这段期间,当看到水流漂来的第一件物件,便会捞起拿去庙里供奉,因为大家都相信这正是代表神明的圣临(寺庙内通常没有九王爷的金身或画像)。

当信众在等待神明驾临之际,法铃声和诵经声不断响起。很多善信会待在庙里诵经,严守连续九天斋戒。相传在九王爷誔期间,会连绵下起雨,直到第九天,亦是庆典的高潮送王爷回去为止。届时大家会举行送神绕境游行,欢送王爷离开。

斋戒仪式

NEF05

九皇斋节由农历八月最后一天开始,一直到农历九月初九日完成送神仪式才算完满结束。庆典期间,民众立灯嵩,亦称掛“九灯”,意为天上的神明指路,让神明知道举行庆典的地方,前来同庆共欢。习俗里善信会吃“九皇斋”,即斋戒茹素。九皇爷诞圣洁庄严,最大的特色就是善信集体茹素斋戒,清除过去的业障。很多善信不杀生、禁荤吃素和静口,讲究身口意三净,清心寡欲。

 

迎神仪式

传统上,庙会在农历九月的第一天举行隆重恭迎九皇圣驾大典。迎接九皇大帝的队伍包括善信和载着神明香炉的圣轿,在舞狮舞龙队领导下,从寺庙出发到附近河边或海边进行接神仪式。所有抬轿人都必须穿上白色衣服,他们会猛力揺动神轿以示神明的驾临。游行队伍当中还有道士随行,平息路上的恶灵干扰。

道士会在河旁设坛进行迎神仪式,祈请九皇爷降临到香炉里,当香炉里的灰燃烧得猛烈通红,正意味着神明的驾临。香炉这时也被请回庙处供善信参拜。

接下来的九天将进行一连串的庆典活动,大批善信争相前来庙宇供养参拜,祈求九皇爷庇佑。九皇大帝庆典也包括过桥及走火道的活动,作为净化仪式的一环。其中“过桥”仪式是九皇爷诞最重要仪式之一,过桥时道士在信众衣服盖上九皇爷封印、又给善信黄绳和吊坠,以示九皇大帝的庇佑,洗尽霉运、消灾解难。

九皇大帝神诞游行庆典的接神和过火桥仪式常见於安邦和槟城一带。

无论在道教或中国民间的信仰里,都有接神游行庆典, 但一般民间信众相信只有皇帝才可进行降神仪式。纵使道教和民间信仰的是相同的神明,然而拜祭的仪式则大相径庭呢!

送王爷仪式

农历九月初九是庆祝九皇爷诞辰的最后一天,也是信徒恭送九皇爷的大日子。众人抬着载有神明香炉的圣轿浩浩荡荡前往河边,寺庙还派出各式花车、大旗鼓队、彩鼓队、醒狮队、高跷队,连同众善信一起随行欢送九王爷游行队伍。抵逹河边后,再由道士主持送神仪式,被选出的执委则手捧着正在燃烧的香炉并登上木船,前往河中央送別九皇爷,象徴神明正式离开。送神仪式结束后,在庆典的第十天取下灯嵩,九皇爷诞庆典也就此完美落幕了。最后以牲供祭祀来答谢天神的庇佑,持斋仪式亦在此时结束。祭祀后的牲品会分派给到来的善信享用,以示庆典正式画上句号。

南天宫

位于安邦的南天宫,由主席及二十位执委组成的委员会,每年都开例会商议九皇爷誔的节日庆典安排;其中还有过百位义工协助年度庆典的运作。

庆典于每年农历八月最后一天开始。凡是举办九皇诞的地区,必定在寺庙广场左方立起“九篙灯”。掛九灯后,接着便是进行正统九皇科仪,由道士主持法事,恭迎天、地、水、火的天神降临至庙里的五座神坛:包括供奉斗母的内坛;供奉玉皇大帝、观世音菩萨、阎王爷和福德正神或大伯公的主坛;供奉天公的外坛。除了主及内外坛以外,另有供奉北斗和南斗天神的神坛;还有酬谢天官赐褔的掛九灯。

翌日,即农历九月初一,由中国传统大戏正式掀开九皇爷庆典序幕。于庆典的第三天、第六天及第九天,寺庙会举行犒军,特设盛宴供养给各方军灵。直到第十天,整个庆典随着降下篙灯,各天神及军灵也返回自己天职。九皇爷节庆典也就宣告完美落幕。

未知

已知与未知同样令人畏惧
已知是安于现状和停滞不前
未知却可能带来成长和机会
人们并不知道自己是否更畏惧未知还是已知
谁说未知会比已知更糟
虽说未知有时的确比已知来得糟
然而说到底一切却依然还是未知
除非我们竭尽所能去努力
因此,全力以赴去追寻未知
因为在熟悉之后,未知就会转为已知。
〜詹杜固仁波切

    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Sandra 问: Respected pastors, Is it ok to pray from different areas in the house (even where there is no altar)? I was told you can't create 2 altars in 1 house.
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question and its nice to see you here again. The reason why we pray in front of our altars is because it becomes a focal point of the enlightened energies we are invoking. Therefore it becomes a kind of portal for the energies of transformation, peace, healing, prosperity and protection. It is also the place where we make offerings to the Buddhas. As such, most people usually only have 1 altar in their home. However, you can have more than 1 altar in your home. As it is an altar, it should be complete with representations of the body, speech and mind of the Buddhas. This would be an image (either a statue, thangka, tsa tsa, poster, framed picture, etc), a Dharma text and a stupa. In front of these, you should have at least 1 type of offering or more. This can be a fixed offering or maybe even a set of water offerings, which you make every day. Since practitioners make offerings on a daily basis, most opt to have only 1 altar, but there is no rule in Buddhism to say you can only have 1 altar. The altar however, should be placed in a respectful place. So, not in the bathroom. Or if in the bedroom, you should put a screen up to block it when you are changing, sleeping, etc. Alternatively, you can keep it in a cupboard, and close the doors during such activities. But altars should be dedicated places to the Buddhas, so don't put secular items in the same place, such as on the same shelf, etc. When it comes to praying, it is usually done in front of the altar, as you are invoking the enlightened beings. When you do your prayers there it becomes a powerful place in your home, and provides you with a sacred space to pray and meditate. However, if circumstances are difficult, then of course you can pray elsewhere. For example, when I first set up an altar, I was living in a single room with not much space. I set up an altar on a shelf but was not able to pray in front of it. Once I had made offerings, I would simply sit in another part of the room and do the prayers there. If it is really not convenient, then of course it is permissible to do the prayers elsewhere. It is better to do the prayers, than not do them at all if you can't be in front of your altar. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Kuenzang wangdi 问: What would be my most suitable colour ?
    pastor 已答: Dear Kuenzang Wangdi, Thank you for your question. The following calculators may be of interest to you: Chinese Zodiac: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html In relation to which colour if most favourable for you, unfortunately our calculators do not give this information. However, from a Buddhist practice viewpoint, what is more important is the transformation of the mind. Once we transform our minds according to teachings, we are able to overcome any obstacle and create good conditions for our lives. You can learn a very short mind transformation teaching here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/eight-verses-of-thought-transformation.html You can couple this with formal practice. If you are interested, a very good practice to bring energies of increase and generate a long life, merits, wealth and prosperity in your life, is the the practice of Gyenze. You can find information about the practice here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html. I hope this helps. Thanks.

    pastor 已答: Hello Naseer, As per your question, your Life Path Number is 1. The Life Path Number according to the system of numerology used on our website is calculated using your date of birth. Therefore, a change in name will not affect your Life Path Number. Some of the other calculators on the same page do however use your name. One of the smaller calculators you may be interested in is the Achievement Number, but again, this only uses your date of birth for the calculation. You can find it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/numerology/numerology-calculator.html You may also be interested in two of our other pages: Chinese Zodiac - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html Thank you for your question.

    Sandra 问: After making a food offering to the three jewels (which we will eat for lunch etc), should we think of it as a blessing and partake?
    pastor 已答: Hello Sandra, When making food offerings to the Three Jewels, which you eat yourself, when you recite the prayer and make the offering, you should visualise that the Buddhas receive your food offering and because you have made an offering, they are very pleased. It also fulfills one of the Refuge commitments, which is to offer the first portion of whatever we eat and drink to the Three Jewels, while remembering their kindness. You can then partake of the meal and consider it a blessing from the Three Jewels. Alternatively, you can set out a plate (which you reserve for this purpose) of food, which you can offer on your altar. Similarly, once the food has been left on your altar for a while, you can later remove it and consume it as a blessing. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra 问: Is intovertedness a bad quality? Since Buddha is so altruistic and this is the opposite trait, it must be bad. How do you think one should lessen introverted tendencies?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Introvertedness is not a bad quality. Altruism and compassion are different from being an introvert or extrovert. Introverts are generally quieter people, less expressive of their emotions, while extroverts are the opposite. Buddhist practice is not about expression of emotion. Rather the altruistic and compassionate teachings are more about how you help other people and sentient beings, physically or emotionally. If the qualities of introverted-ness are stopping you from developing these, then they need to change. But this may not be necessary, depending on the qualities that you are talking about. You can do simple meditations to building up the energy of compassion in your mindstream and you will see that you actions will automatically start to be more compassionate and altruistic. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra 问: How should one behave when negative karma is being purified? How can we know if bad karma is being purified? Do we accumulate positive karma simultaneously when doing purification practices? Many thanks for your response.
    pastor 已答: Hello again Sandra, There are two ways in which karma can be purified, the first is through our own efforts alone and the second is through our own effort, combined with a purification practice. Through our own efforts: this means that you transform your mind enough to not react negatively in any situation and only react in a positive manner. For example, you may have the karma to get angry. So you get into situations which makes you angry. If you react normally, then you will get angry again, this will only lead you to create more karma of being angry. But if you make the effort not to get angry in those situations then you do not create or multiply that karma. The original karma you have may lead you to be in those types of situations again, but if you do not get angry then after a while you start to purify that karma. Through your own efforts, combined with a purification practice: as you are working on transforming your mind, you can rely on the practices that help you to purify your karma, such as the practice of Vajrasattva or the 35 Confessional Buddhas. This boosts your ability to purify negative karma, based on the enlightened energies of the Buddhas. This however is only truly effective when combined with the Four Opponent Powers. You can read more about that here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html In general, when karma is being purified then you should remain level-headed and not act out of emotion or habit, but from your understanding of the workings of karma and the Dharma. But actually, this should not only be when karma is being purified. You should act and behave in this way all the time according to the Dharma, then you are, up to a point, always purifying karma. It is one of the reasons that so much emphasis is placed on refraining from negative actions and engaging in positive actions using your body, speech and mind, because these are the three means or 'doors' with which you interact with the world. At our level, we cannot tell if karma is being purified or not, only those who are more highly attained can tell. However, that is one of the reasons the Buddhist texts advise study of and belief in karma. If there is karma, then it can be purified, and the way to do so is transform your mind and invoke upon the enlightened beings. So if you are doing both, you can rest assured that you are in fact purifying your karma. When you purify negative karma, whether just through your own efforts or combined with a purification practice you collect merit, not positive karma. If you simply do a good action, you collect good karma. But if you are practicing the Dharma with the intention of achieving enlightenment, you take refuge, engage in the practice, and dedicate at the end, then you develop merit, not positive karma. If you want to read more about how karma works and how to purify it in more detail, I suggest you read a Lamrim text such as Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which you can order from your local bookstore or get online here (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand).

    Sandra 问: Hello pastors, thank you for your response to my earlier question. Do divination predictions change frequently? Why does that happen?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. Divinations, compared to astrological predictions, are much more accurate. There are many types of divination, but those based on the practice of enlightened beings are very accurate. Three of the most well-known in Tibetan Buddhism are the divination practices of Manjushri, Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. You can read more about Dorje Shugden's dice divination here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugdens-dice-divination.html Questions that are asked during divinations are much more specific than the types of topics that astrological predictions can help with, therefore are based on very specific types of karma. This means that if you asked a divination question twice, without taking remedial actions in between, then the answer would most likely be the same, given that all the prerequisites have been held by the diviner and the divinations are genuine. However, if a divination is done and then remedial actions recommended, such as various practices or pujas, and these are done to the letter, then if the question is asked again, then the results would differ. This is because when engaging in these practices or pujas, either you generate the merit necessary to overpower the negative effects of the karma, or you purify the negative effects of the karma creating the situation. This however, is generally not done. You wouldn't ask the same question twice or over and over again. The reason for this is because one of the factors that comes into play when seeking divination is faith. This is faith in the fact that the remedial actions recommended will help whatever situation you are facing. Having seen H.E. Tsem Rinpoche do countless divinations for people, I can attest to this. Those who have faith and follow through with the advice, see a great improvement in the situation that led them to ask the divination question in the first place. Those that did not follow the advice either at all or not fully, did not see any improvement. And this makes sense, because they did not purify the effects of the karma enough, or generate enough merit. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    sandra 问: How much importance should we give to astrological predictions or chart readings? Are these readings susceptible to change all the time,i.e, in the context of planetary movements? Can our own effort/actions supercede what is predicted in our birth chart?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your interesting question. You are absolutely correct about the universal principle of change. According to Buddhist practice, astrological predictions are based upon a fixed point in time. Take for example, your moment of birth, which most astrological readings take as the main point of reference. At that specific moment, there would have been various energies or planetary alignments, etc. Combined together, they are said to give an accurate prediction of what will occur to a person throughout their life. This however, is based on one's birth karma, to be born at that specific point in time and location. This birth karma also provides the driving force behind what will occur in a person's life, if that karma is not changed somehow. Hence, that is why astrological predictions can give very accurate readings on someone's personality, as well as life events. Birth karma provides the main force behind all other karma to come into play. That is why it is given importance in astrology. There are also more advanced methods to take into account planetary and energetical movements to give even more detailed and precise predictions that can even be made down to the month, day or hour of a person's life. In Buddhism, however, we believe that karma can be changed. It can multiply, be purified or exhausted, or the effects of that karma can be overpowered by another karma or spiritual merit. In these cases, the outcome will change. The way in which this happens is varied. It can be as simple as doing some prayers (to generate spiritual merit) or changing your behaviour, environment or location, the way you think, and the ways in which you react in various situations. That is why in Buddhist astrological systems, emphasis is placed on remedial measures to counteract negative outcomes. For example, someone may be born with an angry disposition from an astrological point of view. If this person goes through life acting from this anger, then the predictions based on the time of birth will occur. However, a remedial action can be undertaken, such as the person pracitising Chenrezig, who is the Buddha of compassion, or the person doing some form of charity work. These remedial actions generate compassion in the mind of the person, which counteracts the anger. As this happens and the karma is changed, then the person no longer needs to feels the negative effects of any bad astrological (or more correctly - karmic) situations. There are even some practices that specifically help to counteract negative astrological influences and help you to change things. Such an example is Black Manjushri. Within Tibetan Buddhism, according to your time and date of birth, you also have what is known as a 'Birth Buddha'. This is basically an enlightened being that you have an affinity with in this life. General remedial actions include making images of this particular Buddha or engaging in this Buddha's practice. This combined with a change in how we live - otherwise known as Mind Transformation in the Buddhist context - changes astrological outcomes. However, if we continue living without controlling our actions, words and thoughts, the predictions made using astrological readings will most likely still occur. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    pastor 已答: Dear Sangita, Thank you for your question. Everything in our lives, whether good or bad is due to our karma.

You can learn more about this here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/discovering-yourself-a-teaching-on-karma-mindstream.html Sometimes, we go through obstacles or need some form of spiritual help to assist us in improving our situations. In these circumstances we can rely on the practice of certain deities. One of these deities is the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

    Dan 问: Dear pastors, some vegetarians said egg can eat. While some say no. What is your opinion on this. Thank you
    pastor 已答: Dear Dan, Thank you for your question. There are differing views on eggs as part of the vegetarian diet. Some people would say that since eggs we get these days are not fertilized, then they are vegetarian since there is no life involved at that point. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche was vegetarian but consumed eggs, as long as they were free-range and organic, because Rinpoche was against the battery farming system which produces the majority of eggs these days. There is a lot of animal cruelty involved with battery farming. Most people who do not include egg in their vegetarian diets do this because of the harm is causes the hens during the farming process, and also because they can view eating eggs as taking a life. That being said, within Buddhism, there are certain practices that strictly prohibit the consumption of eggs, as with other types of food. This can be for a number of reasons, which are too long to be discussed here. I would say that most people in the Kechara organisation eat eggs although vegetarian, but that may also be a cultural thing. Some people however, have taken the extra step and live a vegan lifestyle, which definitely does not include egg, as an extension of their practice of compassion for other sentient beings. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Bradley 问: Would offerings or prayers like Sangsol offering be more potent if we had the prayers translated to the language of a given geographical area? Example in England where Celtic was once spoken? Would the local deities or spirits be pleased we took the time to do so? They are far older than us.
    pastor 已答: Dear Bradley, Thank you for your interesting question. Actually the sangsol prayers will be effective when done in any language. There are two main reasons for this. The first is that when you recite the sangsol prayer, you are actually invoking upon an enlightened being first, in this case, it is Dorje Shugden. Therefore, when you make the requests of the local deities to accept the offering, be calm and improve local circumstances etc, it is not coming from you. You are actually beseeching Dorje Shugden to help you in this matter. Hence, it is Dorje Shugden who is communicating with the local deities, not us. Secondly, deities and gods, as they do not have physical bodies, do not require ordinary language. Language as we know it is actually linked to our physical bodies. Local deities and gods, etc, because they don't have the same type of physical form as us, actually recognise our prayers through intention and effort rather than language. Therefore, prayers such as the sangsol prayers are effective no matter which language they are physical recited in. I hope this makes sense, if it does not, please let us know and we will clarify further. Thank you.

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
