2 - The Chinese Elements of Datoh Gong Belief in Malaysia

Friday, July 6
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: Rudraksha, Lower Ground Floor

Traditionally, the Chinese have worshipped the landlords. The Chinese brought the same concept of landlords when they move to SEA. They believe the land was managed by the local Malay lords, so they worshipped the Malay gods, known as Datoh Gong. Datoh Gong Belief could be found in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. Nowadays, the Malay must be a Muslim in Malaysia. Islam embraces the concept of monotheism, but the Datoh Gong is Chinese animistic belief. Dr. TAN Ai Boay from Malaysia will discuss the response of the Malay society to Chinese Datoh Gong’s belief.
