马来西亚的印度人

我已在马来西亚居住20多年了。这么多年来,马来西亚文化与风俗习惯中所蕴含的多样性令我十分欣赏,于是我想针对这个国家的丰富文化多写一些文章。

早在英国殖民马来亚以前,印度人就已开始迁移到本区域来,希望借此开拓贸易网、扩张影响力及推广他们的信仰。英国殖民期间,当局鼓励更多的印度人前来英属马来亚——即现今的马来西亚与新加坡——各领域工作,其中包括当警员、政府行政人员或园丘工人。然而到了第二次世界大战(1936-1945)期间和之后,随着许多印度人选择回国参加印度国民军,再加上许多英属机构也陆续从马来亚撤离,马来西亚的印裔人口亦开始减少。

到了今天,印度文化已经在马来西亚文化中留下深刻的痕迹,不管是马来文学、马来美食或马来民俗习惯,我们都可以从中看到印度文化的踪影。这篇文章主要为大家介绍印度人在马来西亚的历史发展、印度人的独特庆典、马来西亚印裔名人,以及印度文化之于马来西亚文化的影响。

前英国殖民时期

早在英国殖民马来亚之前,印度人就已到马来亚半岛(即现今的西马半岛)来经商、传扬宗教及扩大领土和势力。印度文化在马来西亚的影响最早可见于古吉打王国。早期的古吉打王国统治者主要信奉兴都教(印度教),后来才逐渐转为回教(穆斯林)苏丹统治。古吉打王国在古代印度文献中也被称为Kadaram(或Kataha,羯荼诃),并与当时的帕拉瓦王朝(Pallava Dynasty,公元4~9世纪)和朱罗王朝(Chola Dynasty,公元9~13世纪)等强盛的印度王国维持着长期友好关系。

1025年,罗贞陀罗朱罗一世(公元1014 – 1044年)率领军队袭击室利佛逝王国(Srivijaya Kingdom)和今日的马来西亚和印尼等区域,印度商人亦随之取得了更多前来东南亚,包括马来西亚在内的经商机会。朱罗王朝的大船经常川行于恒河、马来西亚和苏门答腊之间, 这为印度商人和传教士前来经商和传教提供了很大的方便。到了今天,我们仍可看到古吉打王国与印度人民之间确实曾经频繁往来的种种迹象。在印度南部的坦贾武尔(Tanjore,曾为朱罗王朝领地)甚至出现了一个名为Kadaram Kondan(意即“吉打的征服者”)的村庄。这村庄里种有据说是从马来西亚引进的橘子品种,名为Kadarangkay或kadaram-pulp(意即“吉打果”)。

英殖民时期

英国势力于18世纪开始入侵马来亚半岛,随后成立了包含新加坡在内的英属马来亚。英政府因看上印度人的英语能力而鼓励他们迁往马来亚,从事劳工、警员、商人、政府行政人员和士兵等工作。这段时期前来马来亚的多是只身离乡背井前来谋生的印度男性,这样的情况也造成当时印度人在马来亚的流动率很高。他们来马来亚工作,尔后又返回家乡;有的只是回乡探亲,有的就此回归家乡去了。

20世纪初,居留于英属马来亚的印度人大约有12万人口。往后30年间,这数字翻了超过4.3倍;到了1931年,马来亚印裔人口已达64万人之多。然而到了第二次世界大战期间,由于许多印度人回国从军,马来亚印裔的人口增长率也相应降低;1931至1957年间,马来亚的印裔人口只增长了28%,达约82万人。

英殖民政府于1946至1948年间曾试图组成马来亚联邦(Malayan Union)却告失败,并于1948由马来亚联合邦(Federation of Malaya)所取代,同时恢复了马来统治者的象征地位。1957年8月31日,马来亚联合邦宣布独立,终结了英国在马来亚的殖民统治。独立后,随着英国政府和机构相继撤离马来亚,本区域的印度人口也急剧减少。

1963年9月16日,马来亚联合邦与新加坡、北婆罗洲和砂拉越联合,共同组成马来西亚联邦,简称马来西亚。新加坡于两年后的1965年脱离了马来西亚。

 

后英殖民时代

Indian010

如今仍有大量印度人涌入马来西亚。他们当中有白领专业人士,也有在印度餐厅打工的蓝领工人,还有一些人则是与本地印裔结婚,以配偶身份留下。

 

人口统计

Indian011

截至2016年7月,马来西亚共有30,949,962人口。其中印裔占6.7%,相等于约200万人;这200万人当中又以淡米尔族(Tamil)为最大族群,占90%。其余10%则由泰卢固族(Telugu)、马拉雅拉姆族(Malayalam)、旁遮普族(Punjabi)、古吉拉特族(Gujarati)和信德族(Sindhi)所组成。马来西亚印裔社群——因各自所属族群而异——多能操几种不同方言,如淡米尔语、泰卢固语、马来语、印地语或旁遮普语等。

 

宗教

Indian012

在殖民时期或更早之前迁移到马来西亚的印度人多为佛教徒或兴都教徒。然而现今印度人因种族同化的情况下,也有信奉回教或基督教者。

 

印度文化对马来西亚本土文化的影响

民间传说

马来西亚好一些耳熟能详的马来文学作品,其实都受到了印度神话如《摩诃婆罗多》(Mahabharata)和《罗摩衍那》的重大影响。其中一些最古老的作品皆源自印度文,包括梵语和帕拉瓦文:

  • 《罗摩圣传》(Hikayat Seri Rama)—— 改编自印度神话《罗摩衍那》,故事情节和人物个性作细微修改。
  • 《梅隆马哈旺萨传》(Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa),又称《吉打纪年》—— 这是一部淡米尔文学作品,描述淡米尔王子与古吉打王国的渊源故事。本书也记载了朱罗王朝时期印度商人前来吉打经商的事迹。
  • 《Hikayat Panca Tanderan》 —— 改编自古印度著名动物寓言故事集《五卷书》(Panchatantra)。
  • 《仁慈鹦鹉传》(Hikayat Bayan Budiman)—— 改编自印度文学作品《鹦鹉故事七十则》(Sukasaptati)。故事中的鹦鹉为了防止女主人犯错而给她说了70则故事。

马来西亚印度人的节庆

Thaipusam Festival celebration at Batu Caves

大宝森节每年都在黑风洞盛大举行

 

大宝森节——庆祝战神的诞生

大宝森节旨在纪念湿婆和雪山女神的幼子战神穆卢干(Murugan),于每年淡米尔历“泰月”满月时(一、二月间)举行。在大宝森节前一天,战神穆卢干的信徒们背上卡瓦地(Kavadi),以忏悔和赎罪的形式向战神表示谢恩。一些信徒把铜制牛奶壶顶在头上,一些则以铁钩刺穿身体各部位,这些都是供养战神的仪式。在大宝森节庆典上,时而会看到战神穆卢干的信徒们陷入一种深层的恍惚状态中,这是常有的。

马来西亚许多兴都教庙宇每年都有举行大宝森节庆典,当中最盛大的庆典活动则在黑风洞脚下的苏巴马廉兴都庙(Sri Subramaniar Swamy Temple)举行。

 

屠妖节——万灯节

STAR

屠妖节(Deepavali / Diwali)又称万灯节,落在印度历Kartika月(十、十一月间)。关于屠妖节的起源众说纷纭,其中一种说法是为了敬拜掌管财富、运气与昌盛的吉祥天女(Lakshmi)。为了迎接吉祥天女的到来,信徒们会进行大扫除,把家里清理得干干净净。一般家庭也会到十五碑小印度的商店和摊贩购买一些独特饰品来布置家里。附加一说,游客们也可以在这里的商店选购精美传统印度服饰和珠宝。屠妖节前夕,信徒们多会留在家里或到庙里去进行膜拜仪式,过后便与家人和亲戚欢聚一堂,享受盛宴。他们也在家里点油灯,象征着 “以光明驱走黑暗,以善良战胜邪恶”。

黑风洞

Batu Caves

黑风洞

黑风洞原文“Batu Caves”,意指石灰岩溶洞群。黑风洞是印度教的朝拜圣地,位于雪兰莪州,距离吉隆坡市中心约13公里。黑风洞的建立是为了纪念战神穆卢干,这里每年吸引了上百万名兴都教徒和游客前来参观,因为这里也是大宝森节最盛大的庆典场地。游客可到寺庙拜拜以获得印度教祭司的祝福。

Batu Caves的取名灵感源自一条河流——Sungai Batu,这条河贯穿黑风洞周围的一座石灰岩山和三个主要岩洞。黑风洞的三大主洞包括了庙洞(Temple Cave or Cathedral Cave)、洞穴艺术村(Cave Villa)和罗摩衍那洞(Ramayana Cave)。

马来西亚印度美食

Banana Leaf Rice

香蕉叶饭

论及马来西亚美食肯定少不了印度风味美食。由于马来西亚印度人有百分之90来自淡米尔族,因此这里的印度食物也偏重于南印度风味,并形成了一种独特的“嘛嘛”(Mamak)美食。

印度美食一般上都少不了咖喱叶、丁香等香料、豆蔻、肉桂和新鲜椰浆等配料。比较广为人知的印度美食就包括了阿杂(accar)、阿榜糕(appam)、椰浆蔬菜(Avial)、香蕉叶饭(banana leaf)、印度香饭(nasi briyani)、印度煎饼(roti canai)、印度麦面饼(chapatti)及其它等。

知名大马印裔历史人物

在马来西亚漫长历史中,印度人对于这国家的贡献可说是功不可没。以下为大家介绍几位著名的印裔历史人物:

 

历史人物

敦法蒂玛(Tun Fatimah)

敦法蒂玛是敦墨泰修家族被灭门后唯一存活的女儿。敦法蒂玛的第一任丈夫是敦阿里,在苏丹马末沙处决了敦墨太修全家(包括敦阿里)之后,她便嫁给了苏丹成为三太太。嫁给了苏丹的前几年,敦法蒂玛由于悲伤过度而几度流产。后来苏丹向她承诺,若生下儿子,便让她的儿子成为王位的推定继承人。尔后,敦法蒂玛相继诞下了二男二女。

马来女演员Maria Menado扮演敦法蒂玛

敦法蒂玛是一位魅力型的王后。在位期间,她让所有涉及杀害她全家——除了她的丈夫——的罪人得到应有的惩罚。在葡萄牙入侵马六甲后,她的两名儿子向外发展势力并建立了各自的苏丹国。她的大儿子拉惹罗登阿里(Raja Raden Ali)建立了霹雳苏丹国;二儿子苏丹阿拉乌丁(Alauddin Riayat Shah II)则建立了柔佛苏丹王朝。

 

敦阿里(Sri Nara Diraja Tun Ali),1445至1456年间在位

敦阿里是马六甲王朝第四任宰相,淡米尔族,也是马六甲王朝历史中的一个强悍角色。敦阿里在他的君主拉惹斯里拜里米苏(Raja Sri Parameswara Dewa Shah),又称苏丹阿布沙希德沙(Sultan Abu Syahid Shah)逝世后,推立自己的外甥拉惹卡西姆(Raja Kassim)为王,并封他为苏丹慕扎法沙(Sultan Muzaffar Shah),1445至1459年间在位。

 

敦墨太修(Tun Mutahir),1500至1510年间在位

敦墨太修是马六甲王朝第七任宰相。他有淡米尔血统,也是一位极具影响力的穆斯林领袖。敦墨太修当宰相期间,安插了好一些自己的亲戚在马六甲皇宫中担任重要职位,这样的裙带关系引起了时任港务大臣拉惹门德利亚(Raja Mudaliar)的不满,于是诬蔑敦墨太修想要谋朝篡位。当时的苏丹马末沙(Sultan Mahmud Shah)随后下令处决敦墨太修全家,除了敦墨太修的女儿敦法蒂玛。敦法蒂玛后来嫁给了苏丹。

    马来西亚被公认为一个非常独特的国家。它是一个拥有多元种族、宗教和文化的国家。截至2016年7月,马来西亚共有大约31億人口,而其中印裔只占少数的6.7%,相等于约200万人。虽然如此,马来西亚各族人民依然可以和睦相处。从这篇博文,我们可以看到印度文化对马来西亚其他种族文化存有一定的影响,尤其是语文和美食方面。此外,马来西亚可称为一个民主国家,因此这里来自不同种族和宗教信仰的人民都可以各自举办庆典活动。

    感谢仁波切分享这篇有趣的博文。

    Zasep Tulku Rinpoche a respected, courage, highly attained Lama and a well known dedicated and devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner . Having a strong guru devotion , courage ,great teaching abilities, he is truly a Great Lama who has uphold the lineage and be of benefit to others. He is admired by many for his courage speaking against the odds and defending about Dorje Shugden practice. He speaks the truth of the practice , the preservation of the Gelug lineage and Tibetan Buddhism. Zasep Rinpoche also acknowledges that the Shugden controversy was orchestrated by the Tibetan Leadership to deflect attention from their incompetence. Dorje Shugden has been practiced for centuries by many high lamas. He even said that it was Dorje Shugden that has exhorted the Dalai Lama to flee Tibet.
    In his autobiography,… A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada tells us a thousand words his account and experience as a refugee. He was forced to flee his invaded country, on a desperate journey to refugee status in Nepal, travelling through a number of countries and finally, citizenship in Canada. The book gives readers an intimate look into the life of one of the remaining Tibetan born and trained masters. A definite good book to catch hold as its contain all of the elements of a great spiritual bio. He continues to share precious knowledge through an expanding of books, which is available in many countries.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    A dog, cat, bird or any animal you bring home is not a pet. You may think of them as so, but they don’t think that way about themselves. To them you are their hope, love, family and safety. If you cannot take care of them, don’t get them in… the first place. Just like any family member when young, they are cute and cuddly, but as they grow, they become adults. You don’t get rid of a family member when they are not cute and cuddly anymore do you? All animals have feelings of pain, sorrow, joy, love, fear and security just like us. Don’t cause them any pain or anxiety. They need us as we need them.

    They are not a commodity, toy, entertainment, punching bag or some fixture to abuse or get rid of when we don’t want them anymore. Think how you would feel if you were them and you were dumped somewhere? Imagine if you are just something to be eliminated when your not cuddly and cute anymore or just ‘get in the way?’ Be kind to animals especially the ones you bring home and cuddle and love when they are babies. You are their world and the only world they have in their restricted lives. Remember we took them from their mothers, families and separated them from their siblings when very young and environments and forced them into our environments. We owe them some loyalty.

    On a visit to the Modisa Wildlife Project near Maun, Botswana, traveller John Hawkins captured this heartwarming footage that shows the incredible bond between a lioness and her rescuer. In the video, Sirga can be seen eagerly pacing back and forth behind a fence as the man, Valentin Gruener, unlocks the gate. Once the gate is opened, the 110-pound lioness jumps onto Gruener—for a cuddly, full-body embrace! Sirga clearly displays her affection for the man, rubbing noses with him during the hug and even laying across his lap on the ground. What an amazing friendship!

    Thank you for the sharing the mystery of the sailing stone. Actually we need to thank the mother earth for creating all the wonders and miracles. Making scientists puzzled in their research and a loss to explain how or why rocks appear to move around by themselves.

    It is very interesting and sound crazy. I never heard of this phenomenon before, but those photos made me google for further information.. I really hope to get here one day just to feel the extraordinary scenery and to witness the incredible phenomenon. Enjoyed the article and the photos.

    Released in 2005, EARTHLINGS premiered at the Artivist Film Festival and won the Best Documentary Feature. It then went on to win the Best Content Award and Best Documentary Film at the Boston International Film Festival and the San Diego Film Festival respectively.

    What is this video that made such an impact on these renowned film recognition boards?

    The 95-minute documentary was inspired by Shaun Monson. He’s a writer, producer and director who had previous shot footage of animal shelters within Los Angeles. He did it to produce a series of public service announcements… however, what he saw had such a profound effect on him that he decided to produce what became known as Earthlings.

    Worldcrunch reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

    Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.

    About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban.

    Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world – whether animal or human being or a very small creature – has all been given the right to live by God.”

    These monks who built the temple has a really good motivation to use the glass bottles as the building material. We are generating a lot of rubbish every day but we have not thought where the rubbish will end up.

    Most of the rubbish we generated goes to the landfill. Some end up in the oceans. Either way, the rubbish has destroyed our environment and lives, including our health.

    These monks show us how to make rubbish into something useful. It is also a good lesson to teach us we have to care more about our environment.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) – Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says.

    For years, the FBI has filed animal abuse under the label “other” along with a variety of lesser crimes, making cruelty hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. The bureau announced this month that it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category – the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed.

    “It will help get better sentences, sway juries and make for better plea bargains,” said Madeline Bernstein, president and CEO of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles and a former New York prosecutor.

    Jessie Earhart had been saving up for a new car when a chance encounter with an abandoned dog changed her plans completely. The kindhearted girl, just 15-years-old, asked her mom to stop when she discovered a discarded dog running along a road. When the teen approached the severely injured pup, the dog now known as Lilly, immediately ran into the girl’s arms nuzzling her head into her arms in relief.

    An animal control officer took Lilly away to a veterinarian for her facial injuries — believed to have been caused by someone who used an ax to strike her face. Lilly’s medical bills piled up and she faced euthanasia. When the teen found out, she offered up the $400 she had been saving to buy a car to help pay the veterinary expenses and decided to adopt the dog herself.

    The teen has no regrets and admits the right car will be there a year from now, but the dog’s life needed to be saved now. Wait until you see how happy Lilly is today — all thanks to one very incredible teen.

    Please take a look at these beautiful images of animals rearing their young in the wild. Their love, gentleness and care towards the young is so amazing. So touching. Each photo captured the beauty of the unbreakable bond between a parent and their child. If you’re a parent, you’ll surely appreciate this.

    Never hurt animals. Never kill them. Never eat them. Let them be in peace and have happy lives. They have every right to live and without fear just like us. We should always protect their environments also.

    Not eating animals is not necessarily a choice for the religious, but a choice of conscience and caring for the environment. Animal farming is contributing very much to the greenhouse effect destroying our atmosphere. Do not contribute to animals being beaten, tied, slaughtered and killed just for us to taste something ‘good’. Fried blood and cooked flesh are not good because it caused pain. Go visit the slaughterhouse weekly. Important. No matter what others say, we must have some principles and not ‘fail’ in everything using others as an excuse. Always be firm in our convictions. I mean principles that protect others from pain. If we are vegetarian, remain so. If we are considering, then research more on the benefits for ourselves, the environment, our planet, our children and the animals. Be firm in helping others and our planet.

    It seems that humans aren’t the only ones who need forgiveness.
    Bizarre footage has surfaced of a fugitive pig grovelling in front of a temple in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province on Tuesday.
    Pictures and video of the bowing boar, which had escaped from a nearby farm, have spread like wildfire on Chinese social media, sparking a flurry of debates over what the animal was doing, reports Sina.
    Footage shows the animal kneeling on its forelimbs encircled by worshippers, as a Buddhist ceremony takes place inside the temple.
    The saintly swine reportedly stayed put for hours, and only left the scene after a group of monks emerged from inside and chanted a Buddhist scripture towards it.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story. One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    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
