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.

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

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.

    Looking at the pictures tells us more….sad and heart-felt seeing those innocent kittens is shot dead by someone who is so cruel. How can whoever who did it so senseless . What goes around will comes around. The mother cat kept licking the kittens, from the picture ,heart broken seeing all her love ones dead. Could not imagine that situation, sad that one of the kitten had the chest cut open and heart exposed with the neck tied with a rope. The other three kittens were already been shot yet their heads were stepped on. Horrible death those poor kittens, may these kitten have a good rebirth.

    Reading this blog and feeling sad . Soolam a Golden Retriever, who was a service dog specifically trained to perform work and assist the writer since as a small furry.

Whatever he eats will throw out. Looking at the pictures the heartfelt writer hold on spending a precious moments with his doggie before he was euthanized. Soolam was a celebrity featuring in scores of times in newspapers, TV and radio. He even appeared as the main star of a special video about service dogs. The writer brought him everywhere he goes for meetings , travelling long distance and so forth over the decades. Well…. he finally laid to rest with his friend. The writer later found Zhar a new friend during a very strange coincidence.
    A beautiful story indeed , with a happy ending.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    From lush rainforest to deserts, frogs are found in every environment on earth. There are many different species as well and colourful too. Unfortunately, an equally-horrific new fad has recently popped up in China, where millions of frogs are being coloured with industrial dyes. Those dyes contains a very high doses of chemical which is harmful to the frogs. They seem to be a popular trend in China and are in high demand at aquariums and ponds , some been keeping it as pets. Everywhere at wet market in China, the dyed frogs are being sold. The effect of injections of chemicals into the frog would be horribly injured or killed the frog. Recording to research the dyes being used on the frogs are dangerous and harmful to human as well.
    May all sales of these coloured frogs must be banned. Its more or less abusing animals in such a way frogs were treated as objects and not living creatures in need of care. In no time all these frogs will go extinction .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these meaningful and heartfelt pictures of those horses. Yes looking at those pictures indeed paint a thousand words. It is truly sad seeing that poor horse Jerry had to suffer. Making horses pull oversized loads like carriages is indeed cruel. They are forced to toil in all weather extremes, heavy traffic all day long. Well they might suffer in silence debilitating leg problems in long term as they have to walk on hard surfaces. Horses would definitely love to be free living on green fields where it’s a better environment for them. They could run freely as they wish. In many cities, horse-drawn carriages are seen as tourist attractions. Even though horse-drawn carriages have been in use for thousands of years , I do hope more countries will ban horse drawn carriages. Recent years many cities around the world are banning horse-drawn carriages. Great news as horse are not mend for hard surfaces, in heavy traffic and so forth.

    There’s nothing in this world like the unconditional happiness our 4-legged buddies give us humans. And, just like our 5 fingers, each of them are gifted with their own personality and unique qualities.

    We should have a first hand knowledge before adopting one. Dog behaviour can be puzzling to both new and experienced dog owners.Thank you very much for the informative article.

    Thank you for the beautiful and historical sharing of Baba Nyonya community in Malaysia. As we know this group is small and their journey begins first at Malacca, then continued to Penang, Singapore, and Indonesia.

    The intermarriage between Chinese and Malay except formed a unique lifestyle and also created out a new culture, customs, festivals, tradition foods clothing, design and entertainment.

    May this rich culture and colourful tradition be preserved and practiced by the younger generation, and do hope this special heritage will live everlasting with us.

    Every where there is spirits or unseen beings . Even old tress do have spirits too. Heard of it those days but for one to see it daily is scary. I am sure Rinpoche’s mother had goose bumps seeing the old man spirit. Luckily not a harmful spirit. Tree spirit is a nature deity related to a tree and are present in many cultures. As many of us do believed that if we cut down a tree with a spirit dwelling in it, is not so good. We are disturbing them. To avoid any misfortune we have prayers to appease the tree spirits, asking their permission to do so…..clearing obstacles or any ugly incident happenings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    nspiring video of a Portuguese boy with strong imprints. His dinner plate was served with rice, potatoes and octopus tentacles. After some questioning he told his mother that animals are not supposed to be eaten, but to be taken care of. This surprised his mother as her young son understands about the killings of animals. He don’t want to hurt animals , he knew the pain and sufferings of animals been killed . That’s wonderful , it’s a good beginning for a young boy to have compassion for animals at such a young age.

    Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical belief that the soul after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life’s karma. Psychiatrist Ian Stevenson has investigated many reports of young children who claimed to remember a past life. Interesting findings. The belief in reincarnation is held by adherents of almost all major religions. Hence life after death and the possibility of reincarnation do happen. What happens to us when we die? Well this is an old question for which religions have provided answers with faith. One of the mysteries puzzling human mind since the origin of mankind is the concept of “reincarnation”. I do believe in reincarnation and have come across friends who remembered their past lives. Recently I met an Indian Sikh lady who’s past life was a Buddhist. Beautiful stories from her too.
    Interesting read of this blog tells us more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the article and video sharing. It’s sad to see the reality of live of some people in the world has to go through so much suffering at younger age to survive.

    The early involvement of child labour is caused by their parents due the families economic hardship, parents need their help to perform their work or replacements when they are sick or old. Unfortunately the brick kiln management taking opportunity to misuse the labour by performing multiple task and treating them as slave.

    I do greatly appreciate the rightful action will be taken to prevent and to provide the new guidelines against the brick kiln owners who have tried to exploit workers.

    Interesting read about Goddess Gemu, being worshipped by the ancient tribal community Mosuo people in both Shamanistic Animism Tibetan Buddhism. The Mosuo are considered the last-remaining matriarchal society in China, where they are a culturally-rich people. The traditional Mosuo religion worships nature, with Lugu Lake regarded as the Mother Goddess. Their practice is incorporated to the Tibetan Buddhism practice in the region for decades. The Mosuo has their own syncretic faith called Daba and the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. The Goddess Gemu is the most widely worshipped by the Mosuo people. Glad to note that the traditional shamanism based Daba faith is concertedly with the Tibetan Buddhism faith. The Zha Mei monastery which is a gelupa monastery had a strong affiliation with Dorje Shugden and at the same accepted the worshiping of this Goddess. The 5 th Panglung Kuten did took Dorje Shugden trance at this monastery . Strangely the CTA cannot accept the practice of Dorje Shugden on the hand could accept an unenlightened protector deity Godess Gemu. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial so as the practice of Daba faith to the Mosus people.
    Well, may the Dorje Shugden ban soon going down into history for the benefits of all sentient beings.
    Thank you Valentina for a detail write up on the Gemu Goddess and those rare pictures of oracles by Dr.Joseph Rock who had explored the Tibetan borderlands .

    Walpola Rahula Thero was a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk, world renowned scholar and writer. Dr. Rahula is the first Buddhist monk to become a professor in a Western world. He has written extensively about Buddhism in English, French and Sinhalese. He was noted not only for his erudition but also for his strong socialist views. During his lifetime he was awarded several awards for his incredible work towards harmony.
    (Whatever we are Theravada or Mahayana, as Buddhists we all accept the Buddha as our Master who gave us the Teaching.)…..well said.
    Ven. Rahula was later instrumental in encouraging the formation of the first Theravada temple in the United States. He spent most of his life in teaching and lecturing before going back to Sri Lanka where he passed away. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this 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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

    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

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.
