Pemerasan Terhadap Rumah Ibadah

Jarang diketahui oleh masyarakat luas di Indonesia, jika beberapa rumah ibadah (Kelenteng, Vihara dan Bio) harus mengalami nasib yang sangat menyedihkan dibanding dengan rumah2 ibadah lainnya.

Kami di Museum Pustaka Peranakan Tionghoa telah Image
mengunjungi sejumlah rumah2 ibadah dan menemukan beberapa informasi diantaranya (sebagian tak mau mengungkapkan karena khawatir dan takut) mengalami perlakuan tak semestinya.

Kekejaman sistematis terhadap etnis Tionghoa, terjadi begitu hebat kala pemerintahan orde baru berkuasa.
Inpres no.14 tahun 1967 , selain membatasi ruang gerak, orang2 Tionghoa juga dilucuti dari budayanya sendiri, bahkan agama. Tak ketinggalan regulasi tersebut, juga berdampak kepada eksistensi rumah ibadah orang2 Tionghoa.

Walaupun Kelenteng / Vihara / Bio adalah rumah ibadah

What was the key to Buddha's enlightenment? He obviously tried all the methods that we know about. What was his secret that seemingly no one else had tried before (at least that we know of)?
#enlightenment #Buddha Image
Siddhartha felt cheated in the name of enlightenment.

When his master said, “You have to move on. I am only a teacher, not a master. I was pretending and I am very sorry!”. Buddha was totally shattered and tired.
#enlightenment #Buddha Image
He went to take a bath in a nearby river, Niranjana. It is a very small river; in the summer it is not even one foot deep. And he was taking a bath, but he was so weak that he could not cross that small current.

#Trams were once the backbone of #Seoul's #publictransit system. The 1st launched on #Buddha's Bday in 1899 by Gojung, & the last ran Nov 30, 1968. The network was greatly expanded in the colonial era, & recently track laid in 1927 was uncovered in front of #Gyeongbukgung Palace ImageImageImageImage
This track was in use till ‘66 & buried during the construction of a pedestrian underpass at Sejongro. Seoul’s bulldozer’ Mayor Kim Hyon-ok was responsible for the trams’ demise. The cars were outdated, replacement + track repair was too costly, & the system disrupted traffic. ImageImageImageImage
Track was laid in the middle of the road, which made boarding a nuisance and forced all traffic to a standstill. In its final year, #tram ridership also dropped significantly even as the gov’t barred operators from increasing fares to maintain affordable service 4 passengers ImageImageImageImage

🙏The Passing Away of Buddha – Swami Vivekananda🔻

The site of Sanchi comprises a group of Buddhist monuments dating back to the 2nd and 1st centuries B.C. It is the oldest Buddhist sanctuary in existence and was a major Buddhist centre in India until the 12th century A.D. ImageImageImageImage
The reign of Mauryan emperor Aśoka in 3rd century BCE is considered instrumental in spread of Buddhism in Indian subcontinent. With the establishment of monolithic Aśoka Stambha (pillar) bearing a highly elaborate capital, Aśoka distinguished Sanchi as a site of great importance. ImageImageImageImage
Since Aśokan times, subsequent powerful empires reigned over this region – such as the Sunga, Kushana, Kshatrapa & finally Gupta dynasties – continued to contribute to expansion of Sanchi with the construction of hypostyle, apsidal, temples, shrines, smaller stupas & viharas. ImageImageImageImage

बुद्ध मत में अन्धविश्वास

अक्सर बुद्ध मत के समर्थक ओर नास्तिक अम्बेडकरवादी सनातन धर्म पर अंधविश्वास का आरोप लगाते है ,ओर खुद को अंधविश्वास रहित बताते बताते नही थकते है ..लेकिन हद तो तब कर देते है जब वेदों पर भी अंधविश्वास का आरोप लगाते है

1. संपूर्ण जग दुःखात आहे, दुःखमुक्ती हीच अध्यात्माची खरी गरज त्यापेक्षा गरजेचं मनुष्यासाठी काहीच नाही बुद्धाइतकं अचूक हे कुणीच ओळखलं नाही म्हणून बुद्ध इतकं धर्मसंस्थापका पैकी खूप वेगळा ठरतो।

बुद्ध आणि त्याच्या धम्माचे भवितव्य यावर बाबासाहेबांचा एक लेख
2. प्रकाशित झाला त्यात बुद्ध कसा वेगळा यावर बाबासाहेब बुद्धा ची तुलना इतर धर्मसंस्थापका सोबत करतात।

ख्रिश्चन धर्मसंस्थापक येशू ने देवा चं अस्तित्व मान्य करून मी देवाचा एकुलता एक आणि शेवटचा पुत्र असं जाहीर करून टाकलं।

मुस्लिम धर्मात पैगंबर म्हणतात देव(अल्ला) आहे आणि मी अल्ला चा
3. शेवटचा दूत।

हिंदू धर्माच मुळात असं कुणी संस्थापक नाही जात आधारीत ती एक शोषण व्यवस्था आहे कृष्ण त्यात महत्त्वाच पात्र त्याने तर ह्या सगळ्यांच्या पुढे जाऊन देवाधिदेव मीच आहे असं म्हणलंय

" Both Jainism and Buddhism were breakaways from the Vedic religion and its offshoots, though in a sense they had grown out of it. They deny the authority of the Vedas and, most fundamental of all matters, they deny or say nothing about the existence of a first cause.

Both lay emphasis on non-violence, and build up organizations of celibate monks and priests. There is a certain realism and rationalism in their approach, though inevitably this does not carry us very far in our dealings with the invisible world.

One of the fundamental doctrines of Jainism is that truth is relative to our standpoints. It is a rigorous ethical and non-transcendental system, laying a special emphasis on the ascetic aspect of life and thought.

The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

In March 2019, I went on a 10-day #vipassana course. It concluded on Holi, the Phalguni moon that was in the sky when the Buddha attained his enlightenment. The journey since then has been path altering. Do read about my bumbling foray as a novice here.…

#Anitya is a work that applies counselling with the lens of the #Buddha's Four Noble Truths. It tells you how to use the changes you have to face.
I retrained as a counsellor because I found alot of people heading to vipassana were not ready for the internal dialogue. it can get overwhelming. I recommend therapy first / alongside deep meditation. Both in combination are a powerfully transformative instrument

1/ On Tibetan Buddhist Nuns in Exile:

#OnThisDay @DalaiLama was awarded #NobelPeacePrize, the only #Buddhist religious leader thus honored (#MLK nominated @thichnhathanh in '67).

Many associate #Tibet w/ him+ other monks in red robes--

What about nuns? Celebrations at Majnu Ka Ti...
2/ "Some feminists from the West cud accuse me by saying, ‘The #DalaiLama is the authority but he doesn’t help the nuns.’"

Yes, @DalaiLama has often faced the accusation that the #TibetanBuddhist tradition doesn't give nuns the same rights as monks.…

3/ 🚨🚨🚨 Of the 8 reps of #TibetanBuddhism in the current Parliament in Exile– two each from Gelug, Kagyu, Sakya, Nyigma sects– **all** are monks; so are the two members from pre-Buddhist Bon religion.

(Though ~1/3 of MPs from provinces U-Tsang, Dhotoe+ Dhomey are women.)

On the @DalaiLama & India:
1/ Many of us know that the 14th @DalaiLama has been living in #exile in #Himalayan town of #Dharamsala in northern India since 31 Mar 1959.

Why India?
Was he blazing a trail w/ his escape?

Map from @TIME (1959)
2/ Second question first: No, he wasn't.

In coming to India, the @DalaiLama trod the path of many #Tibetans before him-- traders+ aristocrats, monastics+ laity, and his predecessor, the 13th #DalaiLama, Thupten Gyatso, who had lived in exile in British India from 1910-12.

3/ Aristocratic families in #Tibet were closely tied in networks of monastic patronage, intermarriage +trade w/ eastern #Himalayan kingdoms of #Bhutan+ #Sikkim. The British Political Officer in Sikkim kept close watch on these alliances. Here he is w/ the 13th #DalaiLama👇.

This is a Buddhist object. It might not look that way to you at first. Can you guess how it is Buddhist? Twenty panels of fabric, with various floral designs, arrang
It doesn't LOOK Buddhist according to how we imagine Buddhist things should look. They should show some Asian aesthetic, such as Tibetan art styles. They should depict grand buddhas or wise monks, or be tools for meditation or mantra practice. They should be traditional (ancient)
But Buddhistness arises not from inherent properties in things themselves--it arises from use and context. What was the context and purpose of this object, therefore?
