Pakaian Melayu

The baju kurung comprises two parts: a blouse and a long skirt

Baju kurung terdiri daripada dua bahagian: blaus dan kain panjang

Sebelum abad ke-20 dan kedatangan Islam, wanita Melayu memakai kemban, kain sarung atau kain panjang,yang membaluti sekeliling badan dan membiarkan bahu terdedah. Penerimaan universal Islam sebagai agama utama Melayu melihatkan pemakaian kemban lenyap dan peningkatan pemakaian baju kurung yang lebih sederhana dan elegan. Baju kurung terdiri daripada dua bahagian: blaus dan skirt panjang. Blaus tersebut adalah longgar dengan panjang yang berbeza antara pinggul dan lutut. Secara tradisinya, baju kurung mempunyai lengan panjang, tetapi fesyen moden menunjukkan rekaan lengan tiga suku panjang dengan lengan loceng dan kembang. Skirt baju kurung panjang hingga ke buku lali dan mempunyai pelisir satu bahagian tepi untuk memudahkan berjalan dan duduk. Pakaian ini boleh dibuat dengan songket tradisional atau kain batik, atau dengan fabrik kapas dengan corak bunga yang ringkas atau corak batik atau mana-mana gabungan fabrik moden. Untuk melengkapkan busana tersebut,wanita biasanya akan memakai selendang atau tudung.

Kepentingan Tudung

Tudung adalah istilah Melayu untuk skaf kepala atau selendang yang menutupi rambut, leher serta bahagian dada, dan meninggalkan hanya wajah wanita terbuka. Kadang-kala tudung dipanggil hijab perkataan Arab yang bermaksud ‘halangan’dan memenuhi kod pakaian dalam Islam yang menyeru wanita Islam untuk berpakaian sopan.

Walaupun tudung tidak wajib bagi wanita sebelum baligh, sesetengah ibu bapa mula melatih anak perempuan untuk memakai tudung dari kecil. Keputusan untuk memakai tudung sebagai sebahagian daripada pakaian harian seseorang biasanya adalah keputusan peribadi dan ia adalah satu komitmen yang dipegang sepanjang hayat.

Cara Pemakaian

 
Kemban

Wanita berkemban dan lelaki berkain sarung

Terdapat dua jenis kain sarung – sehelai kain yang panjang dan kain yang kedua-dua lebar hujungnya dicantum dan dijahit menjadi bentuk tiub. Untuk memakai kain sarung yang dijahit, anda perlu langkah ke dalam bahagian tengah kain dan tarik sehingga ke bawah lengan anda. Lipat bahagian tepi kain sarung ke bahagian hadapan anda dan lipat sebanyak beberapa inci ke bawah untuk memastikan kain tetap ditempatnya. Kemudian, gulung lipatan ke bawah beberapa kali untuk memastikan bahawa sarong tidak lucut.

Kain sarung lepas memerlukan kain tersebut menutup seluruh bahagian belakang badan sambil tangan anda memegang setiap hujung kain.Balut kain di sekeliling badan anda. Bagi memudahkan pemakaian, anda boleh mengepit kain di bahagian bawah lengan anda supaya tangan anda bebas untuk memintal sudut kain sarung sebelum membuat simpulan pada paras dada.

 
Tudung

How to wear tudung

Cara pemakaian tudung

Terdapat banyak cara untuk menggayakan skarf atau selendang menjadi tudung. Gaya asas segi tiga sesuai dengan mana-mana jenis kain berbentuk segi empat.

  1. Lipat salah satu sudut selendang ke bawah hingga bertemu sudut bertentangan untuk membentuk bentuk segi tiga.
  2. Letakkan sisi panjang selendang yang dilipat di atas dahi anda. Kedua-dua hujung selendang itu akan menutupi bahu anda, dan hujung segi tiga akan tergantung di belakang kepala anda.
  3. Buka mulut anda ketika anda tarik tudung di bawah dagu anda, kemudian pinkan tudung. Mulut anda dibuka supaya anda akan mempunyai ruang yang mencukupi untuk menggerakkan rahang anda apabila tudung siap dipakai.
  4. Seterusnya, silangkan hujung selendang pada leher anda supaya hujung selendang sebelah kiri pergi ke kanan, dan sebaliknya. Ekor selendang perlu menutupi bahagian leher dan ke bawah bahagian belakang bahu anda.
  5. Tarik kedua-dua hujung ke belakang kepala anda dan pin kedua-dua di bawah sudut belakang selendang itu.
  6. Laraskan tudung dan anda telah siap memakai tudung.

Terdapat alternatif sedia dipakai di kedai-kedai yang hanya memerlukan anda untuk memasukkan kepala anda melalui bukaan selendang itu. Apabila selendang berada di tempat dan anda telah membuat pelarasan yang perlu, anda telah bersedia untuk menunjukkan gaya baru anda.

Perlu diingat bahawa wanita Islam memakai tudung sebagai satu bentuk komitmen kepada diri dan agama mereka. Janganlah mengambil pemakaian tudung sebagai satu jenaka dalam apa jua cara serta menghormati wanita-wanita ini.

 
Sampin

Selepas masuk ke bahagian tengah sarung dan menariknya sehingga ke paras pinggang, lipat kedua-dua hujung ke arah dalam supaya kain yang dibalut dengan selesa di sekeliling anda. Lipat beberapa inci pertama sarong ke bawah dan terus melipat sehingga hujung sampin berada di bawah lutut. Lengkapkan busana anda dengan songkok.

    Watching the videos of once upon a time with Rinpoche by Pastor David had me understand more of Rinpoche . Truly a unique perspective of Rinpoche through the eyes of Pastor . Interesting indeed to know how Pastor came to meet Rinpoche to learning and many more. Coming to know Kechara had me changed to where I am now….learning, practicing Dharma. At the time of commenting this blog I am half way through watching the videos. Will watch all the interesting episodes from A to Z.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    Everyone has the right to freedom of expression and freedom of speech. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. Thanks to Mr Matthew Sinclair for speaking up clearly with logic. Our world is diverse, acceptance and understanding are the keys to peace and harmony. We choose what we want to practice, no one can interfere with our choice of religion and beliefs. Mr. Matthew, for being open minded and wrote such a good letter that promote religion freedom and human rights. Everyone deserves a well respect on their religion. We should not simply condemn others because of their practice, their choice is theirs. Using the profession to influence and make false accusation rather statement on Dorje Shugden practitioners. Thank you Rinpoche ‘s sharing on Mr. Matthew Sinclair letter.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this précised teachings. Take responsibility of what we are doing in our life. Everyone of us go through difficult situations in life. But always think and behave in a more positive and optimistic way . Taking responsibility for our attitude, change our attitude, and the way we look at things that will change our life. Nobody’s perfect, we learned from mistakes , everybody’s got regrets. We say wrong things and we do wrong things and fall. We have to accept failure ,we learn from there and grow. Doing Dharma work and take whatever responsibility to improve ourselves. Doing Dharma work is to transform our minds , we are trapped in samsara through one life after another until we find awakening through enlightenment. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, so it’s important to embrace our imperfections and work on improving ourselves, helping and benefit others.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

    Thanks for sharing all this creative special thoughts for readers to share with everyone . Simple thoughts yet easy understandable , meaningful tells us a thousand words of reality. Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow again with folded hands.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Reading these inspiring quotes again to refresh myself of the Buddha teachings. If we understand, it will change our life in long run. Change is never painful, only resistance to change ourselves is painful. By refusing to accept this change, we make it worse because we’re fighting against it, against the flow of life. One moment can change a day, one day can change a life. We should be open to change and embrace changes. By accepting the fact that nothing in the universe is permanent . We learn and practice makes improvement in our life and be thankful always.

    PURE DEMOCRACY is democracy in which the power is exercised directly by the people rather than through representatives. Its much different in this case. Reading this article and all comments tells us a clear pictures what had actually happened in this Dorje Shugden controversy. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with religion.People have the freedom to practise any religion they want. Dorje Shugden’s practice has been around for 400 years and it will continue as practitioners could see and understand the benefits of relying on the practice. Everyone of us should given the freedom of religious belief. Peace and harmony can only be maintain through understanding and interaction or maybe a dialogue between parties involved . I am sure Dorje Shugden practitioners and everyone in the communities can live in harmony. Be to fair the right to freedom of belief , interviews on both sides instead just listening one sided. No one should ever suffer, be segregated, assaulted, hurt, degraded, hated and biased for their religious beliefs. Once for all these controversy should be solved for the sake of peace and harmony. Thanks Justin Whitaker for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in for readers to have a better understanding rather then reading what Reuters had published.

    Its sad how those Dorje Shugden practitioners had suffered and life is tough for them. Could’nt imagine not allow to enter premises such as hospitals for treatment, schools for education , securing a government job and so forth. Our very own Kecharian had even denied hotel rooms just because we practice it. This controversy had been going on for too long , hopefully it will dissolve soon with H h Dalai Lama saying we can practice it . All can live happily, no discrimination, with peace and harmony then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David. Of course a hand of applauds to those kecharian who have been working hard to collect all the evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden.

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.
    5 years 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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future.
