Sambutan Keputeraan Yang di-Pertuan Agong di hadapan Istana Negara

Sahabat-sahabat di seluruh dunia sekalian,

Saya telah tinggal di Malaysia lebih 20 tahun. Dalam jangka 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 aspek-aspek Malaysi yang memperkayakan kebudayaannya. Ini adalah salah satu lagi artikel untuk memberi anda pemahaman dan latar belakang Malaysia.

Malaysia telah mengambil sistem raja berpelembagaan yang merupakan satu campuran antara raja-raja terpilih dan keturunan. Malaysia terdiri daripada beberapa kawasan pentadbiran merentasi tiga belas buah negeri dan tiga buah wilayah persekutuan.

Bagi tujuan artikel ini, kita akan menumpukan kepada jawatan Yang di-Pertuan Agong atau Ketua Kerajaan Malaysia, dan sembilan negeri yang diperintah sama ada melalui raja-raja terpilih atau keturunan. Negeri-negeri tersebut adalah:

  1. Johor Darul Ta’zim
  2. Kedah darul Aman
  3. Kelantan Darul Naim
  4. Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus
  5. Pahang Darul Makmur
  6. Perak Darul Ridzuan
  7. Perlis Indera Kayangan
  8. Selangor Darul Ehsan
  9. Terengganu Darul Iman

Saya dengan sukacitanya menyampaikan kepada anda, sistem beraja di Malaysia, sejarahnya, dan bagaimana sistem unik ini telah dilaksanakan dengan jayanya selama bertahun-tahun. Saya sampaikannya dengah penuh rasa hormatnya kepada raja-raja dan monarki Malaysia.

Ringkasan

Malaysia terdiri daripada beberapa kerajaan Melayu dan wilayah yang terdahulunya merupakan sebahagian daripada wilayah kolonial dan negeri lindungan British. Selepas kegagalan menubuhkan Malayan Union antara tahun 1946 dan 1948, Pentadbiran British telah menubuhkan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948, yang mengakui status simbolik raja-raja Melayu.

Persekutuan Tanah Melayu terdiri daripada sembilan kerajaan Melayu: Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Perak, Perlis, Selangor dan Terengganu, serta dua wilayah kolonial British, iaitu Pulau Pinang dan Melaka. Pesuruhjaya Tinggi British, seorang penjawat diplomat kanan British yang bertanggungjawab terhadap sebuah wilayah Komanwel, telah mempengerusikan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu dan dibantu oleh Majlis Mesyuarat Kerja dan Majlis Mesyuarat Undangan.

Pada 31 Ogos 1957, Persekutuan Tanah Melayu telah mengisytiharkan kemerdekaan daripada Empayar British. Pada 16 September 1963, Persekutuan Malaysia, kemudiannya hanya dikenali sebagai Malaysia, telah ditubuhkan. Anggotanya termasuklah bekas anggota Persekutuan Tanah Melayu dan tiga anggota baru: Borneo Utara, Sarawak dan Singapura. Dua tahun kemudia, Singapura telah meninggalkan persekutuan tersebut.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong

 

Sejarah Ringkas

Tuanku Abdul Rahman of Negeri Sembilan, the 1st Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia

Tuanku Abdul Rahman dari Negeri Sembilan, Yang di-Pertuan Agong pertama di Malaysia

Jawatan Yang di-Pertuan Agong telah diwujudkan selepas Malaysia mendapat kemerdekaannya daripada Britain pada tahun 1957. Yang di-Pertuan Agong adalah ketua negara, dan dilantik oleh Majlis Raja-Raja (the Conference of Rulers). Anggota Majlis Raja-Raja memainkan peranan penting dalam pemindaan perlembagaan, terutamanya yang berkaitan dengan status raja-raja, hak-hak bumiputera, bahasa kebangsaan dan polisi-polisi lain yang berkaitan. Orang pertama yang dilantik oleh Majlis Raja-Raja untuk menjadi Yang di-Pertuan Agong adalah Sultan Ibrahim dari Johor (tahun 1873 – 1959; memerintah: tahun 1933 -1960). Namun begitu, raja yang berumur 84 tahun itu menolak jawatan tersebut kerana usia tuanya. Majlis Raja-Raja kemudiannya memilih Tuanku Abdul Rahman dari Negeri Sembilan (tahun 1895 – 1960; memerintah: tahun 1933 – 1960) sebagai Yang di-Pertuan Agong yang pertama selepas itu.

 

Proses Pengundian

Conference of Rulers meeting in 2010

Mesyuarat Majlis Raja-Raja bersidang pada tahun 2010

Majlis Raja-Raja dipertanggungjawabkan untuk menentukan siapa yang akan menjadi Yang di-Pertuan Agong, setiap lima tahun sekali, atau jika jawatan itu dikosongkan akibat kemangkatan atau sebab-sebab yang lain. Keempat-empat gabenor negeri juga turut menghadiri persidangan tersebut, tetapi tidak mempunyai hak untuk terpilih atau mengundi bagi jawatan Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Berikut merupakan ciri-ciri bagi calon untuk layak menjadi Yang di-Pertuan Agong:

  • Calon mestilah seorang raja kerajaan atau kesultanan di Malaysia
  • Calon mestilah dewasa
  • Calon tidak menyampaikan niat kepada Penyimpan Mohor Besar Raja-Raja untuk menarik dari pencalonan jawatan Yang di-Pertuan Agong
  • Majlis Raja-Raja tidak membantah perlantikan seseorang calon berdasarkan sebab musabab yang meragui kesesuaian calon untuk menjalankan tanggungjawab sebagai Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Jata Yang di-Pertuan Agong

Semasa proses pengundian, Penyimpan Mohor Besar Raja-Raja akan mengedarkan kertas undi dengan senarai calon. Setiap raja-raja akan menyatakan pendapatnya sama ada calon tersebut layak untuk dilantik menjadi Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Penyimpan Mohor Besar Raja-Raja bersama dengan raja yang muda dari segi pemerintahannya dan tidak tersenarai sebagai calon, akan mengira undi bersama-sama. Calon yang mendapat sekurang-kurangnya lima undian akan ditawarkan jawatan sebagai Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Jika calon itu menolak tawaran tersebut, atau tidak berjaya mendapatkan undian majoriti, proses pengundian akan diulang dengan raja kedua dalam senarai Kekanaan Negeri menjadi calon seterusnya.

Senarai Kekanaan Negeri:

  1. Yamtuan Besar Negeri Sembilan
  2. Sultan Selangor
  3. Raja Perlis
  4. Sultan Terengganu
  5. Sultan Kedah
  6. Sultan Kelantan
  7. Sultan Pahang
  8. Sultan Johor
  9. Sultan Perak

Selepas Yang di-Pertuan Agong dilantik, pemegang jawatan itu akan melantik raja muda untuk membantu menjalankan tanggungjawabnya di negeri asalnya, kecuali tugasnya sebagai Ketua Agama Islam. Yang di-Pertuan Agong masih lagi memegang haknya untuk menjadi Ketua Agama Islam di negeri asalnya.

Keistimewaan dan Tanggungjawab Yang di-Pertuan Agong

The 14th Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia, Abdul Halim of Kedah and his wife, Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tuanku Hajah Haminah Binti Hamidun

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Malaysia ke-14, Abdul Halim dari Kedah dan permaisuri, Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tuanku Hajah Haminah Binti Hamidun

Yang di-Pertuan Agong harus menjalankan tanggungjawab yang berikut:

  • Melantik jawatan penting kerajaan, termasuklah Jemaah Menteri (seperti Perdana Menteri, Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Ketua Setiausaha Negara), jawatankuasa dan suruhanjaya (seperti Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya, Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Kehakiman dan Perundangan, Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam), hakim-hakim (seperti Ketua Hakim Negara, Hakim Besar Malaya dan Hakim Besar Sabah dan Sarawak), senator dan gabenor.
  • Menjadi Ketua Agama Islam di tiga negeri yang ditadbir oleh gabenor, tiga buah Wilayah Persekutuan dan negeri asalnya.
  • Menjadi Pemerintah Tertinggi Angkatan Tentera, pegawai tertinggi dalam senarai rantaian perintah ketenteraan

 

Penghapusan Kekebalan

Pada tahun 1993, perlembagaan Malaysia telah dipinda untuk melucutkan kekebalan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan raja-raja dalam lingkup peribadi mereka. Perlembagaan juga menyatakan bahawa Yang di-Pertuan Agong atau mana-mana raja tidak boleh memberi pengampunan kepada diri sendiri atau keluarga terdekatnya. Namun begitu, mereka boleh membuat permintaan untuk pengampunan dari Majlis Raja-Raja.

 

Sistem beraja di negeri-negeri di Malaysia

Ketika ini, terdapat sembilan buah negeri di Malaysia yang mengamalkan sistem raja berpelembagaan. Perlembagaan negeri menyatakan bahawa hanya lelaki beragama Islam dan berketurunan diraja sahaja yang layak untuk menjadi ketua negeri tersebut. Seperti sistem raja berpelembagaan yang lain, raja-raja tidak terlibat dalam pentadbiran seharian kerajaan negeri mereka. Namun begitu, mereka masih berhak untuk menjadi Ketua Agama Islam dan untuk melantik Menteri Besar (Chief Minister), atau ketua kerajaan negeri tersebut.

Jata Negeri Kedah

Kesultanan Kedah juga dikenali sebagai Darul Aman, atau ‘Abode of Peace’ (Tempat Keamanan). Kedah asalnya adalah sebuah kerajaan Hindu yang diasaskan pada tahun 630 Sebelum Masihi oleh Maharaja Derbar Raja dari Gemeron, yang juga dikenali sebagai Bandar Abbas. Seorang putera raja Parsi yang telah ditumpaskan dalam peperangan, dia melarikan diri dan terkandas di Kedah. Bandar Abbas menjalinkan hubungan yang baik dengan penduduk di Kedah, dan mereka mengangkatnya sebagai raja mereka, Sri Paduka Maharaja Durbar Raja I.

Sri Paduka Maharaja Durbar Raja I

Pada penghujung abad ke-11, pengaruh Islam telah sampai ke Kedah. Maharaja kesembilan Kedah, Sri Paduka Maharaja Durbar Raja II telah memeluk ajaran baru ini, dan menukar nama dan gelarannya kepada Sultan Mudzafar Shah I (memerintah tahun 1136 – 1179). Selepas dari itu, kerajaan Kedah menjadi kesultanan Kedah. Dari segi sejarah, Kedah telah jatuh di bawah kawalan kerajaan Srivijaya, Siam, Britain dan Jepun. Semasa kedah merupakan negeri uftian Siam, ia terpaksa kerap menghantar Bunga Mas atau Bunga Emas dan hadiah-hadiah berharga yang lain kepada kerajaan Siam. Pada abad ke-18, Sultan Kedah menyerahkan Pulau Pinang dan Province of Wellesley kepada British untuk mendapatkan perlindungan mereka daripada Siam. Namun, Siam telah menyerang Kedah pada tahun 1821 dan mengambil kuasa di kawan itu. Siam juga telah memisahkan wilayah Perlis dari kesultanan Kedah. Pada tahun 1909, Perjanjian British-Siam telah ditandatangani pada tahun 1909, dan Britain mendapat kuasa di Kedah. Siam mengambil alih semula kuasa buat seketika semasa Perang Dunia Kedua sebagai ganjaran perikatan mereka dengan Jepun, namun telah diserahkan semula kepada Empayar British selepas Perang Dunia Kedua. Kedah menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan kemudiannya Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Sejarah Ringkas

Kelantan Sultanate’s Coat of Arms

Jata Negeri Kelantan

Kelantan mempunyai sejarah yang berwarna-warni dan bergelora. Sepanjang sejarahnya, pedagang-pedagang China, India dan Siam telah menjalankan perniagaan mereka di Kelantan, yang menjadikannya sasaran yang menarik untuk kuasa asing mengambil kuasa di kawasan ini. Pada abad ke-13 dan ke-14, kesultanan Kelantan menjadi negeri uftian kerajaan Majapahit dan Srivijaya. Pada abada ke-15, Kelantan menjadi negeri uftian Siam dan kemudiannya Melaka. Semasa Kelantan merupakan negeri uftian bagi Siam, ia terpaksa menghantar Bunga Mas atau Bunga Emas dan hadiah-hadiah berharga yang lainnya kepada kerajaan Siam. Sewaktu jajahan Portugis di Melaka, kesultanan Kelantan telah dibahagikan kepada beberapa kawasan yang lebih kecil di bawah kuasa ketua-ketua feudal. Siam telah mengambil semula kuasa di kawasan ini dan meletakkannya di bawah penguasaan kerajaan Patani.

Pada tahun 1760, seorang ketua dari Kubang Labu bernama Long Muhammad atau Long Pandak telah menyatukan bekas-bekas wilayah Kelantan dan melantik dirinya sebagai pemerintah. Beberapa tahun kemudian, seorang pahlawan Pattani, Long Yunus telah menjatuhkan Long Pandak dan mengisytiharkan dirinya sebagai Raja Kelantan (tahun 1734 – 1794; memerintah: tahun 1775 – 1794). Selepas kemangkatan Long Yunus, kuasa ke atas Kelantan telah dialih kepada Terengganu dibawah kuasa Yang di-Pertuan Muda Tengku Muhammad, anakanda kepada Sultan Mansur di Terengganu (memerintah: tahun 1794 – 1800). Pada tahun 1800, anakanda kepada Raja Yunus, Long Muhammad, menisytiharkan dirinya sebagai pemerintah Kelantan dibawah gelaran Sultan Muhammad I (memerintah: tahun 1800 – 1835). Kelantan menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Johor Sultanate’s Coat of Arms

Johor asalnya merupakan sebahagian daripada kesultanan Melaka. Pada tahun 1511, Portugis telah menawan Melaka dan Sultan Mahmud Shah terpaksa melarikan diri dari kerajaannya ke Bintan. Baginda telah beberapa kali gagal untuk mengambil semula kerajaannya sebelum Portugis menyerang Bintan pada tahun 1526 dan memaksa baginda melarikan diri ke Kampar, Sumatra. Sultan Mahmud Shah mangkat pada tahun 1528, dan kedua orang puteranya telah mengasaskankan kesultanan mereka masing-masing. Sultan Muzaffar Shah (memerintah: tahun 1528 – 1549) telah mengasaskan kesultanan Perak, sementara Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah (tahun 1513 – 1564; memerintah: tahun 1528 – 1564) telah mengasaskan kesultanan Johor. Selama beberapa ketika, Sultan yang baru dan keturunannya telah diganggu oleh Portugis dan Aceh, namun mereka berjaya mempertahankan wilayah barunya itu.

Makam Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah, pengasas Kesultanan Johor

Pada awal abad ke-17, Belanda tiba di Asia Tenggara dan menandatangani dua perjanjian perikatan dengan kesultanan Johor pada tahun 1606. Kesultanan Johor dan Belanda bergabung tenaga untuk mengalahkan Portugis di Melaka. Selepas peperangan, Belanda telah mengambil kuasa di Melaka, dan seperti yang telah dipersetujui, Belanda bersetuju untuk tidak menduduki wilayah kesultanan Johor.

Antara tahun 1666 dan 1673, Jambi, sebahagian daripada kesultanan Johor, telah menjadi satu kawasan yang makmur dan cuba untuk berpecah dari Johor. Niat pemisahan ini telah menjadi satu perang saudara. Semasa waktu ini, Sultan Johor berusaha untuk menyatukan kesultanannya dan terpaksa untuk memindahkan ibu negerinya untuk beberapa kali. Pada abad ke-17, Johor menjadi pusat perdagangan dengan pengaruh melebihi Melaka. Pihak Belanda tidak begitu gembira dengan hal ini, tetapi masih berpegang kepada perjanjian yang telah ditandatangani. Sultan terakhir daripada keturunan asal Dinasti Melaka ialah Sultan Mahmud Shah II dari Johor(tahun 1675 – 1699; memerintah: tahun 1685 – 1699). Baginda mangkat tanpa waris, oleh sebab itu, kumpulan dominan dalam istananya, melantik Bendahara Abdul Jalil (memerintah 1699 – 1720) untuk menggantikannya, sebagai Sultan Abdul Jalil IV.

Takhta itu kemudiannya telah dirampas oleh Raja Kecil, yang mendakwa dirinya sebagai putera Sultan Mahmud Shah II. Raja Kecil telah mengupah pembunuh upahan untuk membunuh Sultan Abdul Jalil IV dan mengangkat dirinya sendiri sebagai Sultan Johor. Namun, pemerintahan Raja Kecil tidak lama, kerana anakanda Sultan Abdul Jalil, Sultan Sulaiman (memerintah: tahun 1722 – 1760) mengambil semula takhta dengan bantuan seorang tokoh Bugis yang berpengaruh, Daeng Parani. Setelah Sultan Sulaiman dinobatkan sebagai Sultan Johor, Daeng Merewah, kekanda kepada Daeng Parani, telah dilantik sebagai Yam Tuan Muda atau waris kepada takhta. Pada tahun 1819, kesultanan Johor telah dipecahkan kepada tanah besar Johor dan wilayah Riau-Lingga. Sultan Johor memegang kuasa ke atas tanah besar Johor, sementara wilayah Riau-Lingga telah diserahkan kepada puak Bugis.

Selepas kehilangan Riau-Lingga, Johor terus membangun menjadi kesultanan yang moden. Dalam pemerintahan Sultan Abu Bakar Johor (1833 – 1895; memerintah: 1862 – 1895), baginda telah menubuhkan pentabdiran mengikut cara British dan perlembagaan negeri, dan telah dikenali sebagai Bapa Johor Moden. Johor telah menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Sejarah RIngkas

Negeri Sembilan's Coat of Arms

Jata Negeri Sembilan

Negeri Sembilan merupakan negeri uftian kesultanan Melaka. Selepas Melaka jatuh ke dalam kuasa Portugis, negeri itu berada dalam perlindungan kesultanan Johor. Pada abad ke-14, penduduk dari Minangkabau di Sumatra telah berhijrah ke Negeri Sembilan. Oleh itu, berbanding dengan negeri-negeri lain, kebanyakan orang di Negeri Sembilan mengamalkan sistem nasab ibu, yang merupakan ciri-ciri masyarakat Minangkabau. Pada abad ke-18, kesultanan Johor terpaksa menangani urusan dalaman, dan tidak dapat melindungi Negeri Sembilan daripada serangan Bugis. Disebabkan itu, Negeri Sembilan mendapatkan perlindungan daripada Sultan Abdul Jalil Pagar Ruyung di Minangkabau, yang kemudiannya menghantar anakandanya Raja Melewar sebagi wakil.

Namun begitu, apabila Raja Melewar tiba di Negeri Sembilan, baginda mendapati seorang yang bernama Raj Khatib telah mengisytiharkan dirinya sendiri sebagai pemerintah Negeri Sembilan. Raja Melewar mengisytiharkan perang ke atas raja baru itu, dan menumpaskan Raja Khatib, dan menabalkan dirinya sebagai pemerintah Negeri Sembilan. Kesultanan Johor mengakui Raja Melewar (memerintah: tahun 1773 – 1795) sebagai pemerintah Negeri Sembilan dan memberikannya gelaran Yamtuan Seri Menanti atau ‘He Who is the Highest Lord of Seri Menanti’ (Dia yang merupakan Ketua Tertinggi Seri Menanti). Selepas kemangkatan Raja Melewar, pemilihan pemeritah seterusnya kerap berakhir dengan perang saudara dan ketidakstabilan, kerana terdapat kepentingan dan sokongan yang bercanggah kepada beberapa pihak yang menuntut takhta. Pada tahun 1873, pihak British membuat keputusan untuk melindungi kepentingan mereka di Negeri Sembilan dengan campur tangan dalam perang saudara itu. Disebabkan itu, kawasan ini jatuh di bawah pendudukan British. Negeri Sembilan menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Sultan Pahang yang pertama ialah Muhammad Shah (memerintah: tahun 1470 – 1475). Baginda merupakan waris kepada takhta Melaka sebelum dibuang negeri ke Pahang oleh ayahandanya, Sultan Mansyur Shah (memerintah: tahun 1459 – 1477) kerana telah melakukan pembunuhan. Pahang pernah jatuh di bawah kekuasaan beberapa kerajaan, seperti Srivijaya, Majapahit, Siam dan Melaka. Pada abad ke-16, Pahang menarik perhatian pihak Portugis, Belandan, Johor dan Aceh. Pada abad ke-17, Pahang menjadi wilayah jajahan kesultanan Johor. Namun, memandangkan pemerintah Pahang berketurunan dari keluarga diraja Melaka dan Johor, mereka berjaya mendapatkan sedikit autonomi dari kesultanan Johor. Sewaktu pemerintahan Bendahara Tun Ali dari Pahang (memerintah: tahun 1806 – 1847), keamanan dan kestabilan dapat dijaga. Malangnya, selepas kemangkatannya, putera-puteranya, Tun Mutahir (memerintah: tahun 1858 – 1863) dan Tun Ahmad berbalah tentang siapa yang berhak untuk mewarisi takhta dan telah memulakan perang saudara. Tun Ahmad (memerintah: tahun 1863 – 1881) kemudiannya telah ditabalkan menjadi sultan yang baru, namun kuasanya telah berkurangan kerana terpaksa untuk tunduk kepada pentadbiran British.

Selepas kesultanan Johor kehilangan wilayah Riau-Lingga kepada Bugis, Temenggung Ibrahim dari Johor telah menandatangani perjanjian dengan Bendahara Tun Mutahir dari Pahang (memerintah: tahun 1858 – 1863), yang menyatakan bahawa Temenggung Ibrahim dan warisnya berhak untuk memerintah negeri Johor, sementara Bendahara Tun Mutahir dan warisnya berhak untuk memerintah di negeri Pahang. Selepas perjanjian ditandatangani, Pahang telah mendapat kebebasan daripada Johor. Pahang menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Pihak Belanda tiba di Perak pada pertengahan abad ke-17 dan menggunakan hubungan mereka dengan Aceh untuk memaksa Sultan Perak menandatangani satu perkankian yang akan membernarkan pihak Belanda untuk membina loji dan berdagang di Perak. Namun begitu, emeandangkan pihak Belanda gagal untuk menjalinkan hubungan yang baik dengan penduduk Perak, penduduk Perak telah memusnahkan loji dan memaksa pihak Belanda untuk pergi. Pada tahun 1670, Belanda telah berjaya untuk mendapat persetujuan dari pemerintah Perak untuk membina sebuah Kubu di Pulau Pangkor yang dikenali sebagai Kota Belanda. Namun, 15 tahun kemudian, orang-orang Perak telah menyerang kubu itu dan memaksa pihak Belanda untuk skeali lagi menghentikan operasi mereka di Perak.

Pada abad ke-19, British telah memaksa Perak untuk tunduk kepada kuasa mereka dan menabalkan Sultan Abdullah sebagai raja baru Perak, dan pegawai British, James W. W. Birch telah diberi tugas untuk mentadbir kesultanan itu. Malang bagi Encik Birch, dia telah dibunuh oleh orang-orang Perak. Pihak British, tidak berpuas hati dengan kejadian itu, telah membuang negeri Sultan Abdullah ke Seychelles, dan menabalkan raja yang baru, Sultan Yusuf Sharifudin Mudzaffar Shah pada tahun 1877. British juga telah melantik pegawai yang baru yang juga fasih dalam bahasa Melayu dan biasa dengan budaya tempatan, Sir Hugh Low. Dia lebih berjaya sebagai pentadbir negeri Perak berbanding yang sebelumnya. Perak menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Sultan Selangor yang pertama ialah Sultan Sallehuddin Shah, juga dikenali sebagai Raja Lumu (tahun 1705 – 1778; memerintah: tahun 1756 – 1778), anak kepada seorang pahlawan Bugis, Daeng Chelak. Pemerintah Perak dan Johor pada awalnya mencabar pertabalan Sultan Sallehuddin Shah, tetapi dia berjaya mendapatkan sedikit keabsahan melalui perkahwinannya dengan ahli dari keluarga diraja Perak. Pada abad ke-19, eksploitasi sumber bijih timah di Selangor membawa kepada kemakmuran ekonomi. Sewaktu pemerintahan Sultan Muhammad Shah (memerintah: tahun 1826 – 1857), Selangor telah dibahagikan kepada 5 kawasan: Bernam, Kuala Selangor, Kelang, Langat dan Lukut, dengan ketua masing-masing bagi setiap kawasan.

Sultan Abdul Samad dari Selangor (tahun 1804 – 1898; memerintah: tahun 1857 – 1898)

Pada tahun 1886, Sultan Abdul Samad, juga dikenali sebagi Raja Abdul Samad (tahun 1804 – 1898; memerintah: tahun 1857 – 1898), memilih Raja Abdullah sebagai ketua Klang berbanding Raja Mahadi, anak kepada ketua yang sebelumnya. Perlantikan ini telah mencetuskan Perang Kelang. Tengku Kudin, menantu kepda Sultan Abdul Samad, telah diberikan tugas untuk mengendalikan situasi tersebut. Tengku Kudin telah mendapatkan bantuan dari tentera upahan, kesultanan Pahang dan Sir Andrew Clarke dari Britain. Oleh sebab ini, tidak seperti negeri-negeri yang lain, Selangor telah menjemput dan mengalu-alukan penglibatan British. Sultan Abdul Samad juga telah menerima seorang residen British, Frank Swettenham, sebagai penasihatnya. Kestabilan yang mengikuti pentadbiran British telah membawa kepada kemakmuran kepada negeri Selangor. Selangor menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963. Sultan Salahuddin dari Selangor (tahun 1926 – 2001; memerintah: tahun 1960 – 2001) telah memperkenankan penyerahan Kuala Lumpur kepada Kerajaan Persekutuan pada tahun 1974, dan Putrajaya pada tahun 2001.

Sejarah Ringkas

Terengganu’s Coat of Arms

Jata Negeri terengganu

Terengganu asalnya merupakan negeri lindungan kesultanan Melaka dan kemudiannya kesultanan Johor. Ia juga merupakan negeri pertama di rantau Melayu yang menerima Islam sebagai agamanya, seperti yang tercatat dalam Batu Bersurat Terengganu. Pada tahun 1725, Terengganu menjadi kesultanan yang bebas di bawah Tun Zainal Abidin (memerintah: tahun 1725 – 1733), seorang saudara Sultan Johor. Pada abad ke-19, kuasa politik telah beralih, dan Teerngganu menjadi negeri uftian Siam dan terpaksa kerap menghantar Bunga Mas atau Bunga Emas dan hadiah-hadiah berharga yang lain kepada kerajaan Siam. Terengganu menjadi makmur pada tempoh ini, memandangkan Siam telah memberikan mereka autonomi yang besar untuk mentadbir sendiri. Pada abad ke-20, Terengganu menjadi negeri uftian Britain. Empayar British telah memaksa kesultanan Terengganu untuk menerima penasihat British. Namun begitu, tindakan ini tidak diminati penduduk tempatan. Siam mendapat kawalan semula ke atas Terengganu buat seketika sewaktu pendudukan Jepun, tetapi negeri itu dipulangkan kepada empayar British selepas Perang Dunia Kedua. Terengganu menyertai Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada tahun 1948 dan kemudian Malaysia pada tahun 1963.

Baginda mewarisi takhta selepas kemangkatan ayahandanya. almarhum Sultan Mahmud (tahun 1930 – 1998; memerintah: tahun 1979 – 1998).

    我应该选择哪一位上师?

    自达赖尊者颁布多杰雄登禁令以后,许多原本跟随上师修持多杰雄登的佛法修持者,突然陷入两难的情况。究竟该继续跟随上师,还是要听从达赖尊者的话,放弃雄登修持?许多人的考量往往是,自己的上师不过是一名普通僧人,而达赖尊者却是闻名全球的藏传佛教精神领袖,这是否意味着达赖尊者所说的才是唯一的答案?

    “洗浴便是我们清洁身体的方式。 但对于心灵,我们从没洗浴,也从没洗净心灵。 我们的日常生活充满了各种情绪各种事,会使我们会生气、妒忌,贪婪、存妄想,我们从没洗净自己的心灵。 唯一能洗净心灵的的做法就是打坐, 打坐是对心灵的洗净。

    在物质世界中,你一天没洗澡都没所谓,但如果是几天没洗澡,那你就会开始意识到问题的存在,且受其困扰。 要是你一周没洗澡,那其他人就会意识到这个问题,因为你身上会散发气味,所以这时候其他人也会受其困扰。 要是你没洗澡的时间再长一些,那麻烦可大了。“

    的确,在现实生活中,我们一天不洗澡就浑身不自在,除了身体觉得黏、脏和痒,身上也会逐渐发出臭味。过了两三天,不只是自己,别人也开始会察觉到。但是,对于心灵,我们却从来不给予相应的注意,试想象一个几十年从未洗涤过的心,会是一颗多么浑浊的心?也难怪社会问题如此严重,患上忧郁症等各种心理病的人日益增加。问题的根源就在于大家都不去洗涤和沉淀自己的内心,一个浮躁不安的人作茧自缚影响的是个人的心理健康,许多浮躁不安的人在一起,自然就产生摩擦,继而衍生社会问题。

    由此可见,佛教提倡静坐,即便不是为了觉悟和成佛,其背后的意义还是十分深远的。

    The journey to the heavens might be a spiritual one but it often materialises a physical aspect, too. It is perhaps this aspiration to reach the world above that inspired Myanmar‘s Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple.

    Devotees believe that Taung Kalat (which means Pedestal Hill), perched atop a volcanic vent, is home to four of the 37 Great Nats whose significance extends to all layers of Burmese culture and belief. In Burmese Buddhism, Nats are regarded as demigods or spirits who act as protectors of Buddhist practitioners. Some are guardians of the hills and forests. These deities inhabit the labyrinth of shrines, stupas and monasteries which sit tightly together just metres from the precipitous edge.

    Education plays a key role in the world and mankind’s progress. It allows us to learn from the past so we can shape a better future. Discoveries and advancements in fields such as Science, Mathematics, Medicine, Psychology, and Engineering have all been made possible because they were driven by education.

    However, many education systems developed in the past have remained stagnant while the world has changed, and continues to change at an unprecedented pace. These outdated systems fail to provide the necessary syllabi to meet the needs of our children today and the challenges they will meet in the future. With many schools offering educational structures and learning systems closely resembling those experienced by our parents and grandparents, modern children may not be as prepared as they should be for the world ahead. Modern education systems should take into account the changing landscape of mankind and of the world, which is now driven not only by automation and technology but also an increasing awareness of our impact on the environment, and our connectivity with each other and the earth.

    Each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life, every Dalai Lama has great potential to benefit many beings by disseminating Buddhism and safeguarding his fellow countrymen. This can be seen clearly as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has been a charismatic global spiritual teacher whose teachings are timeless and translated into many languages.

    However, not all is well in paradise. When each incarnation is recognised, the successor will inherit the position, fame, and estates of his predecessor. As such, as highlighted in Mike Dash’s article featured in smithsonian.com, the selection of the Dalai Lamas is never a straightforward and purely religious process. You will read about the politics and power struggles surrounding the selection process, insights into the tragic loss as the lives of the Dalai Lamas were cut short due to political intrigue, and most of all, the key events that shaped Tibetan history.

    Have you been to watch a Chinese opera before? Did you notice the front-row seats are always left unoccupied? It is said that these seats are reserved for the unseen beings like the deities and spirits.

    For the Chinese opera performers, they worship a god called Wah Kong Sifu. Wah Kong Sifu is the highly respected guardian of the Cantonese opera. It is believed that only with his blessings can the show go on as swimmingly as planned. In spiritual performances of other cultures, similar sets of rituals can also be observed.

    马来西亚彭亨州文冬的暹猛路除了有个闻名的情人瀑布,还有一座 “有求必应”、香火鼎盛的金泽财王庙,是当地不可错过的旅游胜地。金泽财王庙位于克切拉禅修林(Kechara Forest Retreat)的入口处。供奉的是来自西藏的护法,专给人们财富、人缘、生意、长寿、健康等各方面的帮助,至今给不少人带来财运。这些人拜过金泽财王后,有些人在短时间内多次买字中奖,有些几十年不曾中奖的人也突然中了奖。总之,有什么需要都可以向金泽财王求助和求保佑。金泽财王庙每天开放24小时,方便各界人士前来上香、点灯、许愿、祈福。

    Inspiring story of Mahapajapati Gotami who initiated the tradition of female monastic. She was known to be the first woman to seek ordination for women. It was not easy for her to become the ordained women since it wasn’t practiced and the women were not in the equal position as men. She goes against the odds and was fortunate that she received ordination directly from the Buddha and became the first female bhikkhuni of our time. Story of Mahapajapati Gotami ,has proven that women gain attainment same as men.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring story.

    Interesting article on Uppalavanna first time coming across this , something to add to my knowledge. Uppalavanna was considered to be one of the two chief female disciples of the Buddha. The story on Uppalavanna is not only the longest in this collection, but also the most complicated and fantastical. Many ancient tales, twists and turns about her to date, being the daughter of a wealthy merchant.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The White Old Man is a well known iconic figure symbolises wisdom, longevity and to some cultures, prosperity. Therefore it is not surprising to find the worshipping of a similar While Old Man amidst Russian and Mongolia local folklores. The incorporation of the White Old Man into Buddhism goes to show that there are many shared values in the two. Most importantly the White Old Man is a source of strength and blessing to those who prayed to him, as prescribed in his prayers and mantras. Thank you for the informative sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. I feel that her entry in fashion world started when she could not find the perfect props and costumes, she was given the freedom to make them herself where the experience gave her the confidence to strike out on her own as a freelance stylist in 1967.

    And the happy thing is within two years, the clothes she made garnered enough attention for her to create her own label. At the same time, she reiterates that her creativity feeds from a wider perspective and has “nothing to do with politics or war”.

    Thank you so much for this article. In many article, I have came across the word ‘sadhana’, but i don’t have any idea what the word really means. Sadhana mainly helps us to achieve union with that particular Buddha-deity and that means taking on the enlightened qualities of that particular Buddha.

    Even though Rinpoche has become so exhausted where he is unable to recall whether he has done or not his sadhanas, he still makes up for it the following day. Thus, he has maintained his sadhana steadfastly, never wavering or giving up on his practice.

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
