Momentum Waisak ditengah Pandemi Covid-19 bagi Mahasiswa Buddhis Indonesia

204

Terpujilah Sang Bhagava yang maha suci yang telah mencapai penerangan sempurna.

Bulan purnama di bulan waisak.

Bulan purnama 6 Mei, di tahun 2020. Bisa dilihat sepanjang malam di seluruh dunia. Cahayanya terlihat terang dibanding malam malam sebelumnya. Bulan purnama ini merupakan malam dimana menyambut hari Tri Suci Waisak 2564 BE yang jatuh tepat pada tgl 7 mei 2020.

Tri Suci Waisak merupakan salah satu hari besar agama Buddha yang memperingati tiga peristiwa penting. Dimana bodhisattva Pangeran Sidharta lahir kedunia di Taman Lumbini, kedua Pertapa Gotama mencapai penerangan sempurna di Buddhagaya dan Buddha Maha parinibbana di Kusinara.

Memperingati Tri Suci Waisak merupakan hal yang ditunggu dengan sukacita oleh umat Buddha di seluruh dunia. Di Indonesia prosesi waisak biasanya digelar di Candi Buddha peninggalan sekitar abad 8-9 M yaitu candi Borobudur ,meskipun prosesi ini tidak hanya umat Buddha Indonesia tetapi juga dari mancanegara. Prosesi dimulai dengan puja sarana dan disusul dengan prosesi lainnya. Selanjutnya sebelum detik-detik waisak tiba umat melakukan meditasi bersama sampai dengan detik-detik waisak. Detik-detik waisak kali ini jatuh tepat pada pukul 17. 44. 51 WIB.

Tetapi untuk sementara waktu perayaan Tri Suci Waisak 2564 BE ini tidak dapat dilakukan seperti biasanya. Tri Suci Waisak kali ini berbeda, perayaan yang biasa di ikuti oleh ribuan umat Buddha secara bersama-sama di salah satu candi Buddha terbesar di Dunia  ini tidak bisa dilaksanakan. Sebab adanya peraturan pemerintah tentang menjaga jarak di tengah wabah pandemi covid-19.

Pandemi covid-19 mempengaruhi banyak sektor, salah satunya tidak di ijinkannya manusia untuk berkumpul, bergerombol secara besar. Secara positifnya jika kita melakukan perenungan kondisi ini membuat kita manusia menghargai waktu dan kebersamaan, dengan keluarga, saudara, sahabat, teman dan sesama manusia lainnya.

Dalam pesan dan renungan Waisak 2564 BE, saya berpesan kepada seluruh Mahasiswa Buddhis Indonesia dan seluruh umat Buddha Indonesia walapun ditengah kondisi pandemi covid-19, mari kita jadikan “Waisak sebagai Momentum Mewawas diri, Merawat Solidaritas, dan Toleransi untuk Kemajuan Negeri”.

Mewawas Diri berarti melihat, mengoreksi diri sendiri secara jujur agar jangan membuat kesalahan yang sama. Merawat solidaritas berarti bagaimana menjaga satu rasa antara sesama, ditengah pandemi ini solidaritas antar sesama sangat dibutuhkan sebab tidak semua orang dan saudara kita merasakan berkecukupan apalagi saudara kita yang terkena imbas covid-19 secara ekonomi. Toleransi berarti saling menghormati dan menghargai antar kelompok, individu atau masyarakat. Sikap Toleransi ini dapat menghindari terjadinya konflik, diskriminasi walaupun banyak terdapat kelompok atau golongan yang berbeda.

Tetap mewawas diri dan menebar kepedulian untuk Indonesia.

Sabbe Satta Bhavantu Sukhitatta

(Semoga Semua Mahkluk berbahagia)

  1. I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way
    keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.

  2. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much about this, such as you wrote the ebook
    in it or something. I believe that you just can do with
    some p.c. to drive the message home a bit, however other than that,
    this is great blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be
    back.

  3. I think this is one of the most vital info for
    me. And i’m glad reading your article. But wanna remark
    on few general things, The website style is ideal, the articles is really excellent : D.
    Good job, cheers

  5. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

  6. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
    the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  7. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  8. Hello there, You have done a fantastic job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends.
    I am sure they’ll be benefited from this website.

  9. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting
    off-topic but I had to ask! 0mniartist asmr

  10. What i don’t understood is actually how you’re no longer really
    much more well-favored than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.
    You already know thus significantly in the case of this
    topic, made me for my part imagine it from so many varied angles.
    Its like men and women are not interested except it’s something to accomplish with Lady gaga!
    Your own stuffs nice. Always deal with it
    up! asmr 0mniartist

  11. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    With thanks asmr 0mniartist
