Ke hadapan sahabat-sahabat di seluruh dunia,

Saya telah menetap di Malaysia selama lebih 20 tahun dan sejak itu saya mula menghargai kepelbagaian budaya dan adat resam Malaysia. Selama itu, saya menikmati budaya dan adat resam yang wujud di Malaysia, di mana ia telah memberi inspirasi kepada saya untuk berkongsi dengan lebih lagi mengenai aspek-aspek Malaysia yang memperkayakan lagi budayanya.

Salah satu tradisi tersebut ialah Gawai Dayak, pesta menuai yang diraikan secara meluas oleh kaum Dayak di Sarawak dan Kalimantan, masing-masing sebahagian daripada Malaysia dan Indonesia di Kepulauan Borneo. Rencana ini akan tertumpu kepada perayaan Gawai Dayak di Sarawak dan kami akan membawa anda melalui asal-usulnya, aktiviti-aktiviti yang diadakan semasa pesta dan bagaimana pengunjung dapat mengambil bahagian dalam perayaan ini.

Masyarakat Dayak di Sarawak terdiri daripada dua kelompok etnik utama, Iban dan Bidayuh serta beberapa puak kecil seperti Murut, Kelabit, Kenyah dan Kayan. Sarawak mempunyai populasi Iban tertinggi di Borneo, yang mana sekitar 745 400 orang atau 28% dari populasi negeri (berdasarkan kaji selidik pada tahun 2016) adalah orang Iban. Kelompok etnik Bidayuh yang juga digelar Dayak Darat kerana mereka secara tradisi tinggal berhampiran pergunungan batu kapur, kebanyakan mereka menetap di kawasan Selatan Sarawak. Walaupun kepercayaan asal orang Dayak kebanyakan pada Paganisme, majoriti orang Iban dan Bidayuh telah menganut agama Kristian.

Secara tradisinya, keluarga Dayak tinggal di Rumah Panjang, disamping beberapa keluarga yang lain. Setiap rumah panjang mempunyai Tuai Rumah atau ketua rumah panjang, ketua rumah yang terpilih. Rumah panjang yang agak kecil mempunyai lebih kurang 10 hingga 30 buah bilik keluarga. Rumah panjang yang sederhana besar boleh menempatkan 31 hingga 50 buah bilik keluarga, manakala rumah panjang besar boleh mempunyai sehingga 100 buah bilik keluarga.

 

Sejarah Gawai Dayak

Masyarakat Dayak ketika perayaan Gawai Dayak di Sarawak, Malaysia

Gawai Dayak merupakan perayaan yang menandakan berakhirnya kitaran penanaman padi dan disambut oleh kaum etnik Dayak sebagai tanda kesyukuran ke atas hasil tuaian yang melimpah-ruah serta mendoakan hasil yang lebih baik pada tahun akan datang. Menurut Kementerian Pelancongan dan Kebudayaan Malaysia, perayaan ini “menjadi simbol perpaduan, aspirasi serta harapan bagi komuniti Dayak.” Penerimaan Gawai Dayak dalam kebudayaan Malaysia menunjukkan bahawa pihak berkuasa mengiktiraf kepelbagaian etnik penduduk Malaysia, dan menerima adat resam yang pelbagai bagi memperkaya budaya dan identiti Malaysia.

Gawai dalam bahasa Iban bermaksud “perayaan” dan Dayak ialah nama kolektif kumpulan etnik asli di Sarawak. Gawai Dayak disambut secara rasmi pada 31 Mei dan 1 Jun setiap tahun. Walau bagaimanapun, secara tradisinya perayaan ini diraikan sehingga hujung bulan Jun. Idea untuk meraikan Gawai Dayak pertama kali dicadangkan pada tahun 1957 oleh dua orang pengacara radio tempatan, Tan Kingsley dan Owen Liang, dan cadangan mereka menerima sambutan hangat dari komuniti Dayak. Walau bagaimanapun, Sarawak masih dijajah oleh British ketika itu, dan Pentadbiran Kolonial British bimbang sekiranya membenarkan perayaan khas untuk komuniti Dayak, kumpulan etnik lain akan meminta pengiktirafan yang sama. Oleh itu, perayaan Gawai Dayak pada mulanya dikenali sebagai Hari Sarawak untuk melibatkan semua kumpulan etnik di Sarawak.

Pada 31 Ogos 1957, Malaysia telah mendapat kemerdekaan dari Britain dan pada 1962, Gawai Dayak diiktiraf sebagai perayaan orang Dayak. Pada 25 September 1964, setelah penubuhan Persekutuan Malaysia, 1 Jun telah diiktiraf sebagai cuti umum Gawai Dayak dan sambutan pertamanya adalah pada tahun 1965.

Persediaan: Makanan dan minuman

Apabila rumah panjang mengadakan Gawai Dayak, penghuninya hendaklah menyediakan makanan dan minuman terlebih dahulu. Mereka memastikan jumlah padi adalah mencukupi bagi menyediakan tuak, arak tradisional Dayak. Tuak ialah arak beras, dibuat dengan menyulingkan beras pulut dan ragi sebulan sebelum perayaan.

Kek sarang semut atau juga dikenali sebagai Sarang Semut

Tuan rumah mesti menyediakan kudapan and kuih tradisional seperti Kuih Sepit (wafer yang dilipat), Kek Sarang Semut, Cuwan (kuih beracuan) dan Penganan Iri (kuih berbentuk cakera). Kebanyakan kudapan ini, kecuali Penganan Iri, boleh disediakan beberapa hari sebelum dan disimpan di dalam balang yang kedap udara. Selalunya, ketua rumah panjang mengacarakan trip memancing dan berburu bagi mendapatkan daging untuk diperam bagi pesta tersebut.

Persediaan: Perhiasan rumah panjang

Sebelum perayaan Gawai Dayak, penghuni rumah panjang berganding bahu membersih, mengecat dan membaiki rumah mereka. Dinding di dalam rumah dihiasi dengan ukiran mural dan tikar rotan tradisional anyaman tangan juga dibentangkan buat para tetamu duduk.

Acara memasak diteruskan

Sehari sebelum Gawai Dayak, mereka yang terlibat di dalam pesta tersebut berkumpul pada awal pagi untuk mengumpul makanan dan ramuan yang diperlukan seperti minyak sawit, aping, sagu, umbut kelapa, rebung, pucuk ubi kayu, terung, midin dan sebagainya. Bahan-bahan ini akan digunakan untuk membuat sup serta sajian-sajian yang lain. Orang Dayak memasak beras pulut di dalam buluh yang akan menghasilkan satu aroma yang unik. Beras tersebut boleh juga dimasak menggunakan dapur gas atau periuk nasi. Setelah mengumpul bahan-bahan yang diperlukan, mereka yang terlibat memasak daging segar dan yang sudah diperam dengan pelbagai herba seperti serai, halia, daun bungkang dan garam. Tuak selalunya disajikan dengan daging panggang.

Penghapusan Sifat Tamak

Pada 31 Mei, sehari sebelum Gawai Dayak, dua lelaki dan dua kanak-kanak akan mengelilingi rumah panjang tersebut dengan sebuah bakul setiap seorang untuk mengumpul barang-barang yang tidak dikehendaki oleh keluarga-keluarga lain. Barang-barang ini kemudiannya akan dibuang di hujung belakang rumah panjang untuk menghapuskan roh tamak.

 

Penyembahan Dewa

Traditional Dayak offerings to the deities

Penyembahan dewa tradisional Dayak

Apabila senja menjelang, upacara penyembahan dilakukan di setiap bilik keluarga, di mana piring seramik, tabak (piala gangsa), dan bekas kulit buluh belah dipersembahkan kepada dewa. Menurut Sadin B dalam karya sasteranya, Raja Durong, orang Dayak mempercayai tujuh dewa utama:

  • Sengalang Burong – dewa peperangan
  • Biku Bunsu Petara – dewa keagamaan
  • Menjaya Manang – dewa perubatan
  • Sempulang Gana with Semerugah – dewa pertanian dan tanah
  • Selampadai – dewa pembuatan
  • Ini Inee/Andan – dewa keadilan
  • Anda Mara – dewa kekayaan

Dalam mendapatkan restu tuhan, orang Dayak merayu roh-roh yang telah membantu mereka terdahulu. Penyembahan dewa akan diletakkan di empat penjuru setiap bilik keluarga, di dapur, di dalam balang beras, di galeri, tanju (dinding beranda) dan di ladang. Harta lain yang berharga boleh juga diserahkan kepada dewa-dewa dan roh-roh.

Selain daripada memohon rahmat para dewa, orang-orang Dayak memohon kepada roh-roh yang telah membantu kepada mereka pada masa lalu. Persembahan kepada para dewa diletakkan di empat penjuru setiap bilik keluarga, di dapur, di dalam balang beras, di dalam galeri, tanju (serambi dinding) dan di ladang. Barangan berharga lain juga boleh dipersembahkan kepada para dewa dan roh-roh.

Tujuh persembahan tradisional tersebut merupakan tembakau daun nipah, buah pinang, daun sirih, beras pulut, ketupat, sungki (pulut yang dimasak dengan daun buwan), pulut nasi dimasak dalam batang buluh, kek Sarang Semut, kek teracu dan Penganan Iri (tepung pulut dengan nipah dan gula), beras bertih (beras pulut dipanaskan dalam kuali atau periuk), telur rebus, dan wain beras dalam bekas buluh kecil. Selepas persembahan dibentangkan, ketua rumah panjang mengetuai perayaan untuk menunjukkan rasa syukur kepada para dewa untuk tuaian yang banyak, dan meminta keberkatan, bimbingan dan kepanjangan umur daripada para dewa. Ketua rumah panjang kemudiannya menawarkan ayam yang telah mati kepada para dewa dengan memasukkan bulu pelepah ayam jantan yang berlumuran darah di dalam setiap set persembahan.

Selepas upacara persembahan selesai, semua keluarga rumah panjang berkumpul dan makan malam di balai. Aktiviti ini dipanggil makai rami atau hidangan perayaan. Setiap keluarga yang tinggal di rumah panjang menyumbang kepada hidangan perayaan ini. Sebelum tengah malam, perarakan untuk menyambut para dewa dan roh-roh dilakukan di balai. Kadang kala, penduduk rumah panjang juga menganjurkan pertandingan untuk memilih raja dan ratu Gawai, yang juga dikenali sebagai Keling dan Kumang Gawai. Orang-orang tua dan ketua rumah panjang kemudian memberikan nasihat tentang kepentingan keamanan, keharmonian dan ketenteraman. Denda dikenakan kepada mereka yang melanggar tradisi dan peraturan dengan bergaduh, bertengkar, berkelakuan mabuk atau vandalisme.

Anggota masyarakat Dayak yang telah memeluk agama Kristian tidak mengambil bahagian dalam upacara persembahan dewa. Sebaliknya, mereka ke gereja untuk menunjukkan rasa syukur mereka kepada Tuhan untuk tuaian sebelum kembali ke rumah panjang dan mengambil bahagian dalam sambutan majlis makan malam.

 

Makan malam

Pada tengah malam, gong dibunyikan untuk memanggil para tetamu dan penduduk rumah panjang. Ketua rumah panjang kemudiannya mengumumkan ucap selamat panjang umur (Ai pengayu), membaca doa untuk kebaikan, dan hadirin membalas dengan ucapan perayaan, “Gayu Guru, Gerai Nyamai, Senang Lantang Nguan Menua.” Sekiranya ada antara hadirin seorang penyair, beliau boleh diminta untuk membaca “timang ai pengayu” untuk memberkati air panjang umur. Semua konflik dan kesalahan masa lalu diampuni pada masa ini.

Persembahan yang kurang formal seperti tarian tradisional Ngajat (selamat datang), tarian pedang dan persembahan seni mempertahankan diri, dipersembahkan selepas makan malam. Bagi Dayak Bidayuh, mereka akan menari Tolak Bala (Tarian Menolak Bahaya), Tarian Sebelum Menuai untuk meminta perlindungan untuk masyarakat, Tarian Totokng untuk memanggil jiwa padi dan tetamu serta Tarian Langi Julang dilakukan di akhir pesta Menuai untuk menunjukkan rasa syukur kepada para dewa untuk tuaian yang banyak dan kesihatan yang baik.

Selepas makan malam, tetamu berbaris berdasarkan kedudukan sosial mereka. Kaum wanita menawarkan kaum lelaki semangkuk tuak disertai dengan nyanyian seorang wanita. Ini diikuti dengan bacaan puisi tradisional termasuk pelandai, ramban, pantun, jawang dan sanggai.

Ngabang

Pada 1 Jun, rumah-rumah panjang dibuka kepada Ngabang (tetamu). Majlis rumah terbuka juga boleh dianjurkan oleh penduduk rumah panjang, badan-badan bukan kerajaan atau persatuan masyarakat Dayak. Pelawat dan pelancong sering dijemput untuk menyertai Gawai Dayak pada hari ini. Apabila para tetamu tiba, kaum wanita rumah berdiri untuk menghidangkan air kepada tetamu dengan beberapa sajian tuak dalam tradisi Nyibur Temuai, seperti Nyambut Pengabang (minuman sambutan), Ai Aus (minuman penghilang dahaga), Ai Basu (minuman pencuci), Ai Untong (minuman keuntungan) dan Ai Basa (minuman penghormatan).

Dalam majlis rumah terbuka tersebut, ketua rumah panjang atau orang tua yang dipilih membuat jaku ansah atau ucapan mengasah untuk memperkenalkan tetamu kehormat. Selepas tetamu kehormat tiba, beliau dijangka untuk melaksanakan Muka Kuta (membuka kubu) dengan cara mengelar pagar buluh dengan pedang dan membaca puisi. Kemudian, seekor haiwan ditombak di kaki tangga (mankan). Pada acara itu, para penari Ngajat dan kumpulan muzik membawa tetamu ke tempat duduk masing-masing. Selepas semua orang duduk, ketua rumah panjang atau penyair membaca doa untuk tetamu sambil menggoyangkan ayam di atas kepala mereka. Sebelum makanan dihidangkan kepada para tetamu, ucapan khas yang dipanggil Muka Kujuk disampaikan untuk membuka kain tenunan tradisional yang menutupi makanan. Semasa aktiviti Bantil atau minuman memujuk, kaum wanita memberi minuman tuak kepada kaum lelaki sambil menyanyikan pantun tradisional (puisi) untuk mengatasi rasa malu kaum lelaki ini. Menjadi adat bagi kaum lelaki untuk menolak minuman pertama sebagai tanda hormat kepada tuan rumah.

Gawai Dayak juga disertai elemen ramalan nasib. Dalam aktiviti yang dipanggil uti, tetamu khas diminta untuk membuka kelapa yang diletakkan di atas pinggan seramik dengan menggunakan pisau tumpul, tanpa memegang kelapa atau memecahkan pinggan. Jika kelapa menunjukkan isi putih, bermaksud nasib yang baik, manakala isi hitam menunjukkan nasib buruk. Walaupun Gawai Dayak disambut pada 1 Jun, festival ini boleh bertahan selama beberapa hari hingga sebulan. Pada bulan tersebut, majlis perkahwinan Dayak sering diadakan. Untuk menandakan berakhirnya perayaan, tradisi Ngiling Bidai atau menggulung tikar tenunan tangan yang diletakkan pada awal Gawai Dayak dilakukan.

Keperluan pakaian

Apabila menghadiri perayaan Gawai Dayak, pengunjung boleh memakai pakaian tradisional Dayak, ngepan (busana tradisional), atau pakaian moden biasa. Biasanya, ketua rumah panjang memakai pakaian tradisional yang diperbuat daripada cawat, kulit haiwan, dan bulu merak di atas kepalanya. Sering kali, kaum lelaki dihiasi dengan tatu tradisional yang menunjukkan pengalaman mereka. Sebagai contoh, reka bentuk katak di leher depan, atau reka bentuk tegulun di belakang tangan menandakan bahawa orang itu telah membunuh orang lain dalam peperangan. Tatu tersebut juga boleh direka kepada bentuk hidupan laut yang menandakan perlindungan oleh unsur-unsur air.

Pakaian tradisional Dayak untuk kaum wanita merupakan kain betating, sejenis kain tenunan tangan yang dipakai di pinggang dan korset rotan di bahagian atas badan. Kaum wanita juga boleh memakai selampai atau selendang di atas bahu, atau rantai manik di sekeliling leher. Rambut mereka biasanya diikat dan dikemaskan dengan sikat tinggi. Mereka juga memakai lampit (tali pinggang perak), gelang lengan, gelang kaki dan dompet. Sekiranya anda ingin melawat, sila ambil perhatian bahawa Malaysia merupakan sebuah negara tropika, jadi kebanyakan orang yang memakai pakaian yang dibuat daripada fabrik yang ringan dan boleh nafas. Anda disyorkan untuk membawa beberapa baju nipis, seluar pendek dan skirt separas lutut, gaun, seluar panjang, cermin mata hitam, topi, baju panas dan sekurang-kurangnya satu skarf atau selendang. Anda juga boleh mempertimbangkan untuk membawa kasut leper atau kasut yang selesa.

 

Melawat Malaysia dan Sarawak

 

Dokumen perjalanan yang diperlukan untuk memasuki Malaysia

Warganegara ASEAN (Brunei, Kemboja, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Filipina, Singapura, Thailand dan Vietnam) boleh tinggal di Malaysia sehingga 30 hari tanpa visa Malaysia. Pelawat dari negara-negara lain boleh memohon visa terlebih dahulu atau memohon Visa Semasa Ketibaan (VOA) dengan kos RM 330 (USD 75).

    The Dorje Shugden controversy has been going for over two decades. Our Guru H.E. Tsem Rinpoche is one of the many who specks out openly about this issue publicly. Having the courage, brave and honest to explain the truth to those who did not understand the whole situation.
    The Dorje Shugden’s practice have been given to Rinpoche by his root teacher Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, for spiritual purposes. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened Dharma Protector who manifested about 400 years ago from a lineage of erudite masters. Over these years many erudite masters, monks, lamas have been practicing over decades before the ban. Rinpoche has been patiently over the years to provide accurate knowledge about Dorje Shugden across the globe. These truths must be reveal to all. The truth is the truth. It has proven that the practise Dorje Shugden, we do not go to the lower realms. Many highly attained lamas practised Dorje Shugden till the end of his life and has since reincarnated back . They have even composed prayers to Dorje Shugden, give Dorje Shugden initiation, give teachings and promote Dorje Shugden as well. They believe that they will not go to the three lower realms, and will definitely reincarnate into another human form to be recognized, enthroned and continue turning the wheel of Dharma. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting and details write up for us to understand better.

    Reincarnation is religious concept that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical body after biological death. Reincarnation do definitely exist and I do believe . There are scientific proof that shows reincarnation is real and there a number of proven case. Reincarnation facts has proven by science and historically and is regarded by many religions. It is believed that the biological death does not destroy the soul, the soul comes back to earth in a different form, in a different body. In Tibetan Buddhism it is considered common, where there is many highly attained lamas has reincarnated back over and over again. One such example was His Holiness Zong Rinpoche. Interesting watch and I do pick new knowledge from there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about the personal year number, 6, which is related to wholeness. Based on the career, they will be more inclined to please their co-workers, not just by completing their tasks but also by bringing a smile to their faces.

    At the same time, they could be so obsessed with a certain exercise that they end up straining them or developing a repetitive strain injury. They will also come to realize that some people whom they are connected with are not really interested in their relationship, but are more focused on themselves. Thank you.

    Since 1996, there has been an illegal ban placed on the practice of Dorje Shugden. Ever since then, there have been many who suffered because of this religious embargo. This ban has caused families, and friends to split and not be able to have any form of communication and it has caused a lot of distress to both Tibetans and non-Tibetans for no reason other than their practice Dorje Shugden.

    It is definitely retrogressive and backward to have such things to be happening in this age and time. We are already in the 21st century yet, the actions of this religious ban is more reminiscent of the dark ages.

    On a higher level Dharma protectors can help to remove, or create the circumstance in which we ourselves become empowered to remove inner obstacles to our spiritual path. These can include doubt, depression, laziness, anger, jealousy, thoughts of giving up and other emotional issues. Therefore in essence Dharma protectors are beings who act very compassionately like a divine friend, somewhat akin to a guardian angel, safeguarding both our physical and spiritual well-being.

    Gandhi is famous for his use of Satyagraha, or nonviolent protest, to achieve his political goals. Due to his larger than life presence, his perseverance, and his commitment to peace, Gandhi was known by the title Mahatma, or ‘Great Soul’. His selflessness and the fact that throughout his life, he would rather sacrifice himself than instigate violence, made him well-loved throughout the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this beautiful ancient temple in Japan. It is very magnificent and the big Buddha statue is so well made. I like how Japanese maintain their temples. Their temples are simple, neat and clean. It gives people a very serene feeling.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing explaining all about what is God and Buddha. Religion is a cultural system of designated behaviors and practices. The purposes of the practice of a religion are to achieve the goals of salvation for oneself and others. Instead of pushing away one’s responsibilities, we need to go far beyond not just doing prayers and mantras . Do it sincerely, correctly and practicing more to transform our mind. We need to accept and understand the teachings and apply it . The purpose of mantras, prayers and reciting have tremendous power to assist our mind to have a calmer state. Interesting video where hearing Rinpoche teachings i have understand better and still learn.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Wonderful quote by Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo. Yes it is a profound, very deep, and extremely thought-provoking, evocative speech, or write up , I do not quite understand till Rinpoche explained clearly and precisely about the deeper meaning of the write up. Learning , practicing and applying the dharma practice and methods to gain a higher form of mind. We have to accept the way we are and accept our own responsibility for the future instead of blaming others. All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault we find with another, and regardless of how much we blame others, it will not change us. We need to accept reality .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear explanation.

    Lamrin is a Tibetan Buddhist textual form for presenting the stages in the complete path to enlightenment as taught by Buddha. There have been many different versions of lamrim, presented by different teachers of the Nyingma, Kagyu and Gelug schools in the Tibetan Buddhist history. It is a complete guide that shows how one can practice, meditate and gain the full enlightenment of a Buddha. In Tibetan Buddhist history there have been many different versions of lamrim, presented by different teachers of the Nyingma, Kagyu and Gelug schools. All Buddha’s teachings are in a special arrangement that is easy for anyone to understand and put into practice. It is an edited transcript based on a series of Lam Rim teachings given by the Great Tibetan Master Pabongka Rinpoche. And lineage can traced back to Lama Tsongkhapa, Lama Atisha, and finally Buddha Shakyamuni himself. A wonderful book to lead a practitioner from the very beginning of interest in spiritual . For most to learn and practice and put into action.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful 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

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

    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
