马来西亚儒学研究会简介

 

缘起

不少前辈学者鼓励,他们认为马来西亚华人在海外是华夏传统文化继承最好的族群,华文教育由幼儿园开始,有一千二百余间华文小学、六十间中学,数十间国民型华文中学,三间华学院(2014年有两间华文大学),有大量的留台学生,其中不乏是本科生,水平较高,马来西亚华人最有条件成为海外华社推动文化的先驱,应该尽快把“儒学会”组织起来,借团体力量,为民间提高文化层次。

众学者中,特别是已故美国黄开禄博士教授多几次催促,为筹组工作提供许多意见,国内则有赖观福博士、陈徽治博士等人的支持,马来西亚孔学研究会终于提上议程。初期几年的活动,只是组团到曲阜祭孔,办一些零星的文化讲座,孔元二五四五(1994)之间,松散的孔学会才开始落实到有组织性工作上。

INTRODUCTION TO THE ASSOCIATION OF CONFUCIANISM MALAYSIA

 

Origin

Many senior scholars have good words about the overseas Chinese in Malaysia, which, in their opinion, is one of the ethnic groups with the best heritage of China's traditional culture. Chinese education started from kindergartens in Malaysia. There are more than 1,200 Chinese primary schools, 60 Chinese independent high schools and dozens of national type secondary schools, as well as 3 Chinese colleges (two Chinese universities as of 2014). There are a large number of Malaysian students studying in Taiwan, many of whom are undergraduates, who receive a higher level of education. Among the overseas Chinese communities, Malaysian Chinese is most qualified to spearhead the promotion of culture. The Association of Confucianism ought to be formed to enhance cultural level of the folks with the strength of a body.

Among the scholars, one notable proponent was the late American professor Dr. Huang Kailu, who has urged for its formation numerous times, offering lots of advice on the preparatory works. With domestic supports from Dr. Lai Guanfu, Dr. Chen Huizhi and others, the agenda for the Association of Confucianism Malaysia was finally presented. In the initial few years, some visits to Qufu were organized to pay homage to Confucius, and sporadic cultural lectures were given. Only during the Confucius year of 2545 (1994) did the loosely-organized association of Confucianism began to engage itself in more organized activities.

PENGENALAN KEPADA PERSATUAN KONFUSIANISME MALAYSIA

 

Asal

Ramai cendekiawan senior mempunyai kata-kata yang menggalakkan tentang orang Cina di Malaysia. Pada pendapat mereka, ia merupakan salah satu kumpulan etnik yang memegang warisan budaya tradisional China yang terbaik. Pendidikan Cina bermula dari tadika di Malaysia. Terdapat lebih daripada 1,200 sekolah rendah Cina, 60 buah sekolah tinggi persendirian Cina dan berpuluh-puluh sekolah menengah jenis kebangsaan, serta 3 kolej Cina (dua universiti Cina pada tahun 2014). Terdapat sejumlah besar pelajar Malaysia yang menuntut di Taiwan, kebanyakan mereka adalah mahasiswa yang menerima pendidikan tinggi. Antara komuniti Cina di luar negara, golongan Cina Malaysia paling layak untuk menerajui perkembangan budaya. Persatuan Konfusianisme harus didirikan untuk meningkatkan tahap budaya orang ramai dengan kekuatan pertubuhan.

Di antara cendekiawan tersebut, seorang penyokong terkenal ialah mendiang profesor Amerika Syarikat Dr Huang Kailu, yang kerap kali mendesakkan penubuhan Persatuan Konfusianisme. Banyak nasihat telah ditawarkan oleh beliau mengenai kerja-kerja persediaan. Dengan sokongan dalam negeri daripada Dr. Lai Guanfu, Dr. Chen Huizhi dan lain-lain, agenda Persatuan Konfusianisme Malaysia akhirnya dibentangkan. Dalam beberapa tahun kebelakangan ini, beberapa lawatan ke Qufu telah dibuat untuk memberi penghormatan kepada Confucius, dan kuliah budaya diadakan dengan sekali sekala. Hanya pada tahun Confucius 2545 (1994), barulah Persatuan Konfusianisme yang longgar mula terlibat dalam aktiviti secara lebih teratur.

There have been meetings of only a moment, which have left impressions for life, for eternity.

No one can understand that mysterious thing we call influence... yet... every one of us

continually exerts influence, either to heal, to bless, to leave marks of beauty;

or to wound, to hurt, to poison, to stain other lives.

— J.R. MILLER, The Building of Character

 

曾有些会面不过片刻,却留下一生的深刻印象,甚至直到永恒。

无人能透彻理解那我们称之为影响力的神秘事物... 然而... 我们所有人持续发挥影响力,去医治人、祝福人、给人留下美好的印记;或去伤害人、中伤人、荼毒人、玷污其他人。

—  《品格的塑造》,米勒(J.R. MILLER)著

 

 

 

There comes a special moment in everyone’s life, a moment for which that person was born.

That special opportunity, when he seizes it, will fulfill his mission— a mission for which he is

uniquely qualified. In that moment, he finds greatness. It is his finest hour.

— WINSTON CHURCHILL

 

每个人的一生都会有某个特殊时刻临到,而他也为此而生。若他把握住那特殊的机遇,他就完成了他的生命任务——是惟有他才能胜任的任务。他就在那一刻感受到生命的伟大。那就是他的黄金时刻。
