Saya telah tinggal di Malaysia lebih 20 tahun, dalam pada masa itu, saya telah memupuk satu penghargaan yang besar terhadap budaya dan adat yang wujud di Malaysia, yang telah memberi inspirasi kepada saya untuk lebih banyak menulis tentang kekayaan kebudayaan negara ini.

Kaum India telah mula berhijrah ke rantau ini sebelum penjajahan British lagi, mengembangkan jaringan perdagangan mereka, menyebarkan pengaruh mereka dan mempromosikan kepercayaan mereka. Selepas British memulakan penjajahannya, mereka telah menggalakkan kaum India ke Tanah Melayu di bawah pentadbiran British (British Malaya), atau kini dikenali sebagai Malaysia dan Singapura, untuk bekerja di dalam pelbagai sektor seperti pasukan polis, kerja pentadbiran kerajaan atau sebagai buruh di ladang. Sewaktu perang dan selepas Perang Dunia Kedua (tahun 1936 – 1945), populasi masyarakat India di Malaysia mula berkurangan, kerana kebanyakan kaum India telah pergi berkhidmat di dalam pasukan Tentera Kebangsaan India (Indian National Army) dan banyak institusi British mula meninggalkan British Malaya.

Kini, kita boleh melihat pengaruh India di dalam perlbagai aspek kebudayaan Malaysia, contohnya dalam Bahasa Melayu, masakan Melayu dan di dalam cerita rakyat Melayu. Artikel ini merangkumi sejarah kaum India di Malaysia, perayaan mereka yang unik, tokoh-tokoh India yang terkenal di Malaysia, serta pengaruh India terhadap kebudayaan Malaysia.

Pemerintahan Pra-Penjajahan British

Sebelum kedatangan Penjajah British, kaum India telah mengembara ke Semenanjung Tanah Melayu (kini dikenali sebagai Malaysia Barat) untuk berdagang, menyebarkan agama mereka, dan mengembangkan pengaruh dan jajahan mereka. Pengaruh India dapat dilihat menerusi kerajaan-kerajaan kuno seperti Kedah Tua, yang dipegaruhi besar agama Hindu sebelum menjadi kesultanan Islam. Kedah pada ketika itu kerap kali dirujuk sebagai Kadaram, dan negeri itu mempunyai hubungan panjang dengan beberapa kerajaan Tamil yang berpengaruh, seperti Dinasti Pallava (Abad ke-4 hingga ke-9 Masihi) dan Dinasti Chola (Abad Ke-9 hingga ke-13 Masihi).

Pada tahun 2015, Maharaja Rajendra Chola I (memerintah dari tahun 1014 – 1044 Masihi) telah mengetuai bala tenteranya dalam menyerang Kerajaan Srivijaya dan lokasi-lokasi lain sekitar Malaysia dan Indonesia kini, untuk melemahkan rantau itu. Hasil dari serangan ini, pedagang Tamil telah mendapat lebih banyak laluan masuk ke negara-negara di Asia Tenggara, termasuklah Malaysia. Empayar Chola memiliki kapal-kapal besar yang berlayar ke Ganges, Malaysia dan Sumatera waktu kini, yang telah memudahkan pergerakan pedagang dan mubaligh India ke kawasan ini. Kini, kesan-kesan interaksi antara masyarakat Kedah Tua dan India masih boleh diperhatikan. Di Tanjore, dahulunya sebuah wilayah jajahan Empayar Chola dan kini sebahagian dari Selatan India, terdapat sebuah kampung bernama Kadaram Kodan. Di kampung tersebut, terdapat sejenis buah oren, kadarangkay atau pulpa-kadaram, yang pada asalnya telah dibawa masuk dari Malaysia.

Sewaktu Pemerintahan Jajahan British

Dalam abad ke-18, British telah mengambil kuasa di Semenanjung Tanah Melayu, dan menggelarkan Malaysia dan Singapura waktu kini, sebagai British Malaya. British telah menggalakkan penghijrahan buruh India ke British Malaya kerana pemahaman am mereka dalam Bahasa Inggeris, dan mereka telah diambil bekerja sebagai tenaga buruh, anggota polis, pedagang, pegawai pentadbiran kerajaan dan anggota tentera. Kebanyakan kaum India yang berhijrah ke British Malaya pada waktu itu kebanyakannya orang lelaki yang telah meninggalkan keluarga mereka di India. Oleh sebab itu, populasi kaum India kerap turun naik kerana mereka datang ke British Malaya untuk bekerja, dan kemudian pulang untuk melawat keluarga mereka atau balik ke kampung.

Pada awal abad ke-20, terdapat kira-kira sebanyak 120,000 orang India yang tinggal di British Malaya. Jumlah itu bertambah lebih dari 433% dalam jangka masa 30 tahun, dengan sebanyak 640,000 orang India menetap di kawasan ini menjelang tahun 1931. Sewaktu Perang Dunia Kedua, kadar perkembangan populasi orang India jatuh ketara, disebabkan kebanyakan mereka terpaksa berkhidmat dalam pasukan tentera. Dari tahun 1931 hingga 1957, populasi orang India di Malaysia hanya meningkat sebanyak 28% kepada kira-kira 820,000 orang.

Selepas kegagalan untuk menubuhkan Malayan Union di antara tahun 1946 dan 1948, Pentadbiran British telah menubuhkan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948, yang telah mengakui status simbolik raja-raja Melayu. Pada 31 Ogos 1957, Persekutuan Tanah Melayu telah mengisytiharkan kemerdekaannya daripada pemeritahan Empayar British, dan menandakan berakhirnya pemerintahan di bawah jajahan British. Setelah Persekutuan Tanah Melayu mengisytiharkan kemerdekaanya, institusi dan pentadbiran British telah meninggalkan negara itu, dan populasi orang India di rantau itu, semakin berkurangan.

Pada 16 September 1963, Persekutuan Malaysia, yang seterusnya dikenali sebagai Malaysia, telah ditubuhkan. Ahli-ahlinya termasuklah bekas anggota Persekutuan Tanah Melayu bersama tiga anggota baru: Singapura, Borneo Utara dan Sarawak. Dua tahun kemudiannya, Singapura telah keluar dari Persekutuan itu.

Cerita Rakyat Tempatan

Beberapa buah cerita rakyat Melayu banyak dipengaruhi oleh mitologi India, seperti Mahabhrata dan Ramayana. Cerita-cerita tertua pada asalnya telah ditulis dalam bahasa-bahasa India seperti Sanskrit dan Pallava, contohnya seperti:

  • Hikayat Seri Rama – sebuah adaptasi Ramayana, sebuah kisah mitologi India, dengan beberapa perubahan kepada situasi-situasi watak dan personaliti.
  • Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa yang turut dikenali sebagai Sejarah Negeri Kedah (The Kedah Annals) – sebuah kisah sastera Tamil yang menceritakan tentang seorang Putera Tamil dan hubungannya dengan kerajaan Kedah.

  • Hikayat Panca Tanderan – diadaptasi daripada Panchatantra, sebuah koleksi cerita dongeng haiwan dari India.
  • Hikayat Bayan Budiman – •diadaptasi daripada Sukasaptati, sebuah karya kesusateraan India berkenaan seekor burung nuri yang menyampaikan cerita kepada tuannya supaya dia tidak berlaku curang.

Tun Fatimah merupakan satu-satunya waris Tun Mutahir dari Melaka yang hidup. Dia telah berkahwin kepada seorang lelaki bernama Tun Ali sebelum menjadi isteri ketiga Sultan Mahmud Shah, selepas baginda membunuh kesemua ahli keluarganya. Dia telah keguguran beberapa kali pada beberapa tahun pertama perkahwinannya dengan Sultan Mahmud Shah, disebabkan kesedihannya. Baginda Sultan kemudian berjanji kepadanya, jika dia melahirkan waris lelaki, anaknya itu akan menjadi waris kepada takhta kerajaan. Selepas itu, Tun Fatimah telah melahirkan dua orang putera dan dua orang puteri.

Tun Fatimah merupakan seorang permaisuri yang popular dan berkarisma. Sepanjang dia menjadi permaisuri, dia telah memastikan semua orang yang terlibat dalam pembunuhan keluarganya dihukum, kecuali suaminya sendiri. Selepas Melaka diserang Portugal, kedua orang puteranya telah meninggalkan Melaka dan menubuhkan kesultanan mereka sendiri. Putera pertamanya, Raja Raden Ali telah menubuhkan kesultanan Perak dan putera keduanya, Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah II telah menubuhkan kesultanan Johor.

 

Tun Ali dari Melaka (berkhidmat: tahun 1445 – 1456)

Dia merupakan satu tokoh yang berkuasa dalam Kesultanan Melaka sehingga apabila kemangkatan tuannya, Raja Sri Parameswara Dewa Shah, juga dikenali sebagai Sultan Abu Syahid Shah (memerintah tahun 1444 – 1446), dia telah menabalkan anak saudaranya, Raja Kassim sebagai sultan baru Melaka dan menganugerahkannya gelaran Sultan Muzaffar Shah (memerintah 1445 – 1459).

 

Tun Mutahir dari Melaka (berkhidmat: tahun 1500 – 1510)

Tun Mutahir merupakan Perdana Menteri Kesultanan Melaka yang ketujuh. Dia berketurunan Tamil dan merupakan seorang pemimpin Islam. Sewaktu perkhidmatannya, dia telah meletakkan banyak pegawai-pegawai Islam, yang juga merupakan sanak saudaranya, dalam jawatan-jawatan penting kerajaan. Amalan nepotisme ini telah mendapat tentangan dari Raja Mudaliar, syahbandar kepada pelabuhan Melaka, yang menuduh Tun Mutahir merancang untuk merampas takhta. Sebaik mendengar berita ini, pemerintah pada ketika itu, Sultan Mahmud Shah menitahkan agar kesemua ahli keluarga Tun Mutahir dibunuh, kecuali seorang, Tun Fatimah, yang telah baginda kahwini.

    This article is truly inspiring. Ms Chen contributed most of her time working, her passion was a strong desire that she was able to do amazing things. It is indeed a rare sight to see a person who is able to be selfless at such a deep level in many ways. I do agree that we definitely need more Ms Chens in this world to inspire and to help others.

    Ngawang Wangyal known to many as Geshe Wangyal and the first American lama introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the West. He was a Buddhist lama and scholar of Kalmyk origin born in Russia. He travelled through Russia to Tibet and spent the next 20 years traveling throughout Asia, learning English and translating . It was during the Chinese invasion he escaped to India and later went to American. Despite the many challenges he faced , he built a monastery been the first temple in the Western hemisphere, sponsored Tibetan monk scholars to assist him in teachings. That’s how Tibetan Buddhism spread in the west. His long list of accomplishments would include pioneering efforts in establishing Tibetan Buddhism’s intellectual bona fides in American academia. During the last several years of his life he worked tirelessly on his final book.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring untold story of how Tibetan Buddhism first came to America through one great Lama.

    Kalarupa is one a wrathful emanation of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, manifesting as a Dharma Protector. Kalarupa displaying as the direct spiritual protector force for all ugliness arising from the true inner spiritual obstacles of fear, hatred, pride and jealousy . As an emanation of Manjushri, Kalarupa’s practice ultimately helps us to destroy ignorance and develop wisdom to overcome our anger and suffering. Interesting read of the story how Kalarupa arose as a Protector. Beautiful pictures of Kalarupa in many forms.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing, even though I still have more to understand.

    Animals are sentient beings who like us have feelings, if we hurt them they feel pain and if we treat them with love and care, they would feel loved. The more we human know about the animals the more we feel how amazing they are.

    In Buddhism, offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. One such offerings such as foods. flowers, and so forth. Reading this post gives us a more understanding of some do’s and don’ts regarding food offerings. Offering food is a meritorious act that also reminds us not to be greedy or selfish.
    GREAT guidance , precious teachings and listening from those videos tell us more. All about making offerings, the importance of our motivation and the results of making offerings to the Three Jewels
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this sharing.

    nteresting story of Namkar Barzin who is a worldly Dharma Protector in their own right after being subdued by Domo Geshe Rinpoche. And is part of Dorje Shugden’s entourage whose history goes back to about 90 years ago. Namkar Barzin is the second minister to Dorje Shugden after Kache Marpo. Well known for having the power to protect buildings, institutions, monasteries, and so forth . And also promotes peace, harmony, prosperity and growth as such as powerful in protecting Dharma.
    Interesting read story of how Namkar Barzin became a Minister in the entourage of Lord Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche did composed a prayers to Namkar Barzin feeling strongly connected to him and this will benefit people spiritually.

    Astrology is a big influence on our life as it determine certain traits of character that influence our actions. Astrology does have some things in common with religions, such as seeking to understand the greater nature of the universe.

    Well! Tibetan Buddhism astrology goes much further, seeing deep into our soul and the karma you are working through in this life time, and far into the future even to the end of your life’s path.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing and happy to discover the Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology .

    The Chinese concept of yin and yang describes nature in daulities with two opposite, complementary, and interdependent forces. In simple words, two halves balancing together that make a whole. Yin and yang always flows and changes with time. Examining and understanding these patterns in ourselves and around us brings more balance in life. Examining and understanding these patterns in ourselves and around us brings more balance in life. All things carry the yin while embrace the yang. Neutralising energy brings them into harmony. Accepting true constants in life, change and death facts can release us from as much suffering and bring freedom in life. We must remember to let go of the past, and allow life to take its course. To me simplicity, patience, compassion are our greatest treasures. Great quotes.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Benza Guru Drubtop’ accomplished practitioner from Bhutan who has achieved spiritual realizations due to the recitation of the Padmasambhava Mantra. Previously he was a blind beggar living in the outlying suburbs of Bhutan. To regain his vision, the farmer following the advice of spiritual teachers and decided to recite the Vajra Guru Mantra with which he could improve his eye sight. His faith in Padmasambhava began to emerge and increase. As day and night didn’t make much difference to him and he began to recite the mantra diligently day and night, praying to Guru Rinpoche with great devotion. He eventually achieved an incredible level of realization. After having the vision of Padmasambhava ,he passed away thus fulfilling the prophecy. Inspiring read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    We build up understanding through our experience in the world. The process of reflection helps us to develop our understanding more deeply . We then could share our intuitive knowledge with others. It provides the opportunity to step back and take a look at what our work means to us. Self-reflection focus our mind and energy makes us a better decision maker.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this meaningful thought

    King Trisong Detsen (740-798) was the second of the Three Dharma Kings of Tibet He played a pivotal role in the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet and the establishment of the Nyingma. He believed to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri, that built Samye Monastery the first monastery . King Trisong Detsen aimed to revitalize Tibetan Buddhism so much so arranged a debate known as the Council of Lhasa. The Council of Lhasa, at Samye, was a famous debate, between the Chinese Buddhist monk Moheyan and the Indian Buddhist master Kamalashila. It is also known as the Great Debate, this debate lasted for 2 years. An interesting story behind this long and rancorous debate. The Council of Lhasa is an important event in Tibetan history and shaped the practice of Buddhism in Tibet up until today.
    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette Kass for this sharing.

    Coming across this post of suspended coffees truly had me wonder if in Malaysia will come up with this compassionate concept. A suspended coffee is a great way to pay forward for a coffee meant for someone else who cannot afford a warm beverage. Kindness can come in many forms including the purchase of a suspended coffee,
    a very good concept indeed. This is a tradition that comes from Naples, Italy, dated in the 20th century. Buying a cup of coffee for a stranger , who needed it especially during cold nights. A simple act of kindness can change someone’s life. To date, many countries in US and Europe have started these compassion concept and had in fact inspired more. Hopefully one day this will happen in Malaysia .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    n the remote mountain highlands of eastern Tibet, there exists a unique lineage of female spiritual practitioners at Gebchak Gonpa. A nunnery of more than 350 from all the Tibetan schools of Buddhism came to study and practice Dharma, upholding rigorous meditation and yoga practices. Gebchak’s yogini nuns are famed for their accomplishments in profound yogas and meditation. These women have devoted their entire lives to practicing the Dharma. Interesting read of those Gebchak’s yogini nuns lives, as stated in the post.
    Sadly, during the cultural revolution the Gebchak Gonpa was destroyed and the remaining nuns were dispersed. Yet many of them continue preserving their unique female yogic tradition who had survived the Cultural Revolution. Today, new generations of nuns and lamas are preserving Gebchak’s practice lineage rebuilt and re-established Gebchak Gonpa, despite extreme physical hardships.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Mr. Martin, well write-up this article of great-lamas-masters great-masters speak truly all about Tsem Rinpoche. We as students have seen and heard of all Rinpoche wonderful and extraordinary qualities. Rinpoche not only cares and loves all his students and even to strangers as well. Nor matter who you are regardless of race and faith Rinpoche will be too willingly to help. That’s Rinpoche’s nature a Bodhisatva . Rinpoche had made a way from Us to India and then Malaysia just to spread Dharma teachings and nothing else. Rinpoche as advice by his teacher to be in Malaysia and that’s where he established many departments to benefits all sentient beings. Reading through this post tells us all Great Masters, Lamas, Geshes and many highly attained Lamas and Masters specking what is true the same qualities of Rinpoche. Rinpoche was very kind, generous, giving, compassionate, always doing charity, giving to the poor, raising funds, sponsoring. Described Rinpoche as someone highly intelligent and extraordinary person. Interesting read , may more people reading this article to have a clearer view of Rinpoche.
    All I could say is that Rinpoche had showed us the light of life. With folded hands , may we able to meet Rinpoche again in this life and so forth.

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

    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

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.

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

Thanks to everyone of you who have contributed to our foodbank enabling us to give all our recipients (especially those celebrating) a Raya to remember! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
