    The Secret of "Terima Kasih"

    Post  William on Wed Sep 10, 2008 12:18 am

    Ini artikel yang ditulis oleh Bapak Anand Krishna di koran The Jakarta
    Post menyikapi kejadian di Tibet baru-baru ini (Maret 2008).

    Indonesia, Tibet and the secret of 'terima kasih'

    Anand Krishna, Jakarta ,

    I first met His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1996. Accompanying me was a
    parliamentarian and two other friends. We were fortunate enough to
    have a private audience with him. When I said we were from Indonesia,
    he immediately reacted: "Oh yes, yes, yes ... Indonesia .... Tibet has
    very strong relations, strong ties with Indonesia." | Mon,
    03/24/2008 1:10 AM | Opinion

    "Atisha, was a monk from India. He went to Indonesia to learn from the
    Indonesian master," he said.

    Fortunately, I knew the story.

    Indeed, not many Indonesians remember we used to be a treasure house
    of wisdom. We did not import spirituality from India; indeed, even the
    Indian pundits came to our archipelago to learn from our indigenous
    masters.

    Later, Atisha traveled to Tibet, where he propagated the teachings of
    his master.

    The meditation he taught is still being practiced by the Tibetans. It
    is called Tong-Len, literally meaning "The Meditation of Terima and
    Kasih, Receiving and Giving". The common phrase terima kasih, now
    meaning "thank you", is no ordinary phrase.

    There's a deep philosophy behind it. It reflects our view of life and
    it projects our deep rooted belief. We, Indonesians, believe, or at
    least once believed, in the law of gratitude. We do not, or did not,
    need a movie like The Secret to tell us to "be grateful" for all we
    receive from the universe.

    More than 800 years ago, the Indian pundit traveled to Sumatra, then
    known as Svarna Dvipa, to learn from Dharmakirti Suvarnadvipi,
    Dharmakirti of Svarna Dvipa. He spent more than 10 years with his
    master. He documented each word he heard and each lesson he learned.

    We, Indonesians, do not have any record of this.

    Later, this meditation would be used by Tibetan medicine men and
    doctors. They would imagine their patients' pain and draw it into
    themselves. This is the first part of meditation, terima -- receiving.
    Then, in the second part, they would send out their energy of well
    being, kasih -- giving.

    The was technique soon replaced their herb-based anesthesia. Let me
    remind you again, all this happened over 800 years ago.

    The beauty of this technique is, the receiver of pain, the recipient,
    can process pain and transform it into well-being. All negativities
    can be drawn into oneself, be processed and then projected out as
    positive energy.

    Now the technique is being used by many Western neurologists, as part
    of transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, to relieve the suffering
    of some stroke victims.

    "But I have to emphasize, we haven't got a clue what's going on," said
    Max Bennett, professor at the University of Sydney and one of the
    world's top neurologists.

    "It's a phenomenon. But in one sense, it does indicate that there are
    a lot of things that we know nothing about in Western science," he said.

    "We know by the year about 2020, the greatest disabling phenomenon for
    the health of the human race will be depression. Not cancer, not heart
    disease, but depression," he said.

    This drug-free technique from our own archipelago can ultimately
    replace the expensive morphine-based pain killers.

    When discussing the Chinese occupation of his homeland, the Dalai Lama
    said, "This is the meditation which frees me from hatred. I use it
    every day to send out positive energy and feelings to the Chinese."

    I personally can never ever forget the words of the Dalai Lama: "We
    Tibetans are always thankful to Indonesia and Indonesians, for this
    beautiful Tong Len teaching."

    Those of you who have seen and heard him may recall the way he speaks.
    He uses minimal words, short sentences and is not burdened by the
    sophisticates of English grammar.

    I bear witness to Dalai Lama's terima kasih for us, Indonesians and
    our land, Indonesia. I stand witness to his gratefulness, his gratitude.

    Now, as Indonesians let's remind ourselves of what it means to be
    thanked. It is kembali kasih, and when reading between the lines it
    means "I am equally grateful to you."

    Unlike the American "welcome" and British "never mind", Indonesians
    return "gratitude with gratitude". Let us now face the mirror of our
    consciousness and let us check the face of our souls. Have we returned
    the Tibetan gratitude with gratitude?

    For almost a millennium the Tibetans have preserved the missing pages
    of our history. They have preserved them with a sense of gratitude.
    What have we done for them? How do we return our gratitude to them?

    The European Union, the United States, the United Nations and
    countries like Poland, Germany, India and Taiwan have all commented on
    the recent uprising in Tibet against the illegal occupation of their
    homeland by the Communist regime of China.

    What do we have to say? Perhaps we find it more comfortable to remain
    silent as we have been doing recently. But, let us remind ourselves
    this is not our tradition, this is not our culture.

    Let us remind ourselves of what Sukarno, the father of our nation,
    once said: "Freedom to be free* For, of what use would be 'freedom
    from fear'; of what use would be 'freedom to express, freedom to
    believe, and freedom from poverty, freedom from fear' -- if there is
    no 'freedom to be free?'"

    Time and again, Sukarno would repeat that the fruits of Indonesia's
    freedom would not be enjoyed by Indonesians alone and that Indonesia
    would unceasingly work for the freedom of all peoples from all lands.

    I have no space left to discuss the illegalities of the Chinese
    occupation of Tibet. Any student of history cannot but condemn the
    occupation. We, as a nation, must immediately stand up against the
    occupation. Otherwise, generations to come may laugh at our cowardice,
    unclear foreign policies and our negligence toward history. Aside from
    the Tibetan issue, I am afraid our attitude may ultimately harm us.
