Birthday Celebration of Yang di-Pertuan Agong in front of Istana Negara

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 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

Jata negeri Johor

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.

    Another success story of Kechara Soup Kitchen

    H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche had conceptualised Kechara Soup Kitchen based on his experience of great hunger. He understood that hunger cuts across all barriers of humanity and will unite people in compassion. Kudos to all who held Rinpoche’s wishes and went all the way to the success that it is today. Many had benefitted from Kechara Soup Kitchen and many still will.

    Menlha (Medicine Buddha) practice

    I truly recommend that you to be familiar with this great Medicine Buddha (Menhla) puja (prayer) as it is so beneficial on many levels, for the swift recovery of sick ones, for the dying or those who had passed and for our own well being. It had been said that at the point of death, if Medicine Buddha’s mantra is recited, then one will take rebirth in the human realm. Such is the compassion of Menhla.

    Tibetan leadership forces Sera Jey monk to propose self-harm

    When a government forces a monk to publicly announce that he will self-immolate if the dirty politics in his own government do not stop, the situation is really bad. Monks are supposed to not interfere with any of the secular matters and only focus on his Dharma study and practice.

    Monks also hold vows of not killing also included himself. Suicide is against their vow and it is one of the major vows. This Sera Jey monk is willing to return his monk vows and kill himself just to raise awareness of the corruption of the Tibetan government.

    Tibetan government should really take a good look at themselves to change for the better. This should be a wake-up call for them already. The sufferings that the public feel will be much more if they stay the same.

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche does Dorje Shugden

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche is one of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s tutors. He is the one that is responsible for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s education. Since His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not someone ordinary and he will be responsible for the spreading of Dharma later in his life, they will definitely choose the best teacher for him.

    From here, we can see how great this Ling Rinpoche is to be able to be responsible for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s education. He must be someone respectable and excellent in his knowledge to be able to hold such post.

    How is it possible for CTA to choose someone that does demon practice to teach the Dalai Lama? If Dorje Shugden is a demon and it means Ling Rinpoche is a demon practitioner and what he taught His Holiness will be demon practice. It is not logical.

    Markham makes it illegal to ban Dorje Shugden

    Dorje Shugden ban has been around for 20 years and many had suffered discrimination and segregation from their own Dharma and secular communities. They are being denied services from restaurants and hotels. They are even being denied by schools and hospitals.

    Dorje Shugden people had suffered tremendously due to their choice of religion. It is unfair to persecute someone based on their choice of religion. That state of Markham recognizes the unjust of the issue and issued a public notice to warn their citizens to not use religious affairs to create trouble especially Dorje Shugden religion.

    Those who are found guilty will be brought under the law. This is a huge step for religious freedom in Tibet and hopefully, more and more cities and counties will follow Markham.

    Ever since the Dorje Shugden ban was imposed 20 years ago, the Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered a lot. The CTA issued a directive to the Tibetans telling them to not have any connection with Dorje Shugden practitioners. Families, friends, teachers, and students are split due to the difference in their faiths.

    The CTA said there is no ban on Dorje Shugden practice, this is not true at all. There are notices put up to stop Dorje Shugden practitioners from frequenting. Dorje Shugden practitioner is not allowed to frequent restaurants, shops, guest house, and temples. In addition, Dorje Shugden practitioners are hurt physically. Nothing was done by the CTA to stop these harmful behaviors.

    These 2 videos are another solid proof of the ban. People are turned away because they are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In general ,when people know you practice Dorje Shugden, they will reject you just like how they did in the videos. The CTA should lift the ban as soon as possible beacuse it causes separation and disharmony in the Tibetan community.

    China’s passport is becoming more powerful similar to the United States and the United Kingdom. This new development clearly says that China is fast becoming more respected, and more importantly, trusted. It also means with there is a lot of international trade with the Chinese government and Chinese business people and companies. A more powerful Chinese passport also indicates a wealthier and more affluent Chinese domestic economy. As Chinese people find it easier to travel and access the people of the world, the rich Chinese culture and their philosophy will spread to other nations.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as the great protector Dorje Shugden after he was murdered by some jealous students of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen made a promise in his previous life (when he was Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen) that he would protect Buddhism, in particular, the Tsongkhapa doctrine. The appearance of Dorje Shugden is to help Dharma practitioners of our time to overcome their obstacles in life and be able to focus in spiritual practice. For non-Dharma practitioners, Dorje Shugden will give them protection and create a connection with them to guide them in their spiritual path when the time is right.

    Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen the greatly learned master and emanation of Manjusri, was born in 1182. At the moment he was born many auspicious signs and omens appeared. This show he was some one very special been able to speak in Sanskrit at the time of birth and when he was 3 years old amazingly ,he could even read and speak Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese and Mongolian without having been taught. Wow…. Just within a few years he was able to recite lengthy works of philosophy and Tantra by heart. Since then he studied under many great masers in various subjects such in the Tibetan and Sanskrit languages, astrology, medicine and art, grammar, poetry, and music. He even composed numerous comprehensive logical commentaries, and his skill in debate was unmatched and he possessed with limitless knowledge. He was one of the greatest scholars in Tibetan history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this sharing.

    Spectacular Dorje Shugden Mural in Kathmandu, Nepal!

    Rinpoche had commissioned a Dorje Shugden Mural in the heart of Kathmandu Valley recently. It is definitely first of its kind and Dorje Shugden will be able to bless whoever that passes by that busy road every day. It is designed in such a way that its soft to the eyes but yet still striking enough to catch their attention. Gold paints are used so the mantras will be visible even at night when it reflects lights.

    The mural is located on Charkhal Road in Dilli Bazaar, the mural can be found midway between our two Dorje Shugden chapels which are in Putalisadak and Chabahil. It is also very close to one of Kathmandu’s largest shopping malls (City Centre Mall), with lots of shops, restaurants, and colleges nearby. The road itself is a very busy thoroughfare, with hundreds (if not thousands) of people driving through daily.

    This mural is signifying the religious freedom that we have in Nepal. They do not interfere with any religions unless it is influencing the public in a bad way. Nepal is truly a democratic country and everyone can enjoy their rights freely without the fear of being persecuted unfairly.

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

Teehee...She is our Kechara Forest Retreat doggie and runs free throughout our sacred land. Her name Pema means lotus. Tsem Rinpoche

My Nepalese boys work hard and I appreciate them. Today we have purchased special foods for them to snack on and also to cook with so they won\'t be so homesick. These foods are all imported from their country. There\'s a street in downtown K.L. that sell all this. So happy to get this for them. Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

    1 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
