ABSOLUTE DEITY, FEMININE & MASCULINE, CREATORS: MALAYAN BRIEFER
Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra
Divine wisdom or Theos Sophia articulated well about the Supreme Deity or the One Universal Principle. The Supreme Being has the Unmanifest and Manifest aspects, and we can know only the Manifest aspect of that omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent Being.
Southeast Asians are not wanting in knowledge of the Supreme Deity, both the Manifest and Unmanifest facets of the Godhead. Below is a summary of deities in Malayan myths.
Among the many indigenous peoples in Indonesia and Malaysia there are several examples of dual gods and sometimes of trinities. In Sumatra, the Toba Batak see the Absolute Mula Jadi na Bolon as three persons representing the upper, middle, and lower worlds. In Nias there is a two-person divinity representing the dual nature of the universe—good and evil, light and dark. For the Ngaju people of Borneo, Jata is the feminine side of a dual godhead. She represents the lower world and the moon. Mahatala, the male aspect, is the upper world and the sun. Together Jata and Mahatala form the Absolute Tambon Haruei Bungai (see Southeast Asian entries)
A further reflection on such Beings reveal the three generic domains of Spiritual (upper), Mental (middle), and Physical-Astral (lower) domains. As one studies the myths across the ASEAN, one would encounter such division of domains, which is indicative of the grasp of occult knowledge by the ancient Lemuro-Atlanteans from whom the Malays and IndoMongolians came from.
Note the Absolute Tambon Haruei Bungai, for instance. The Absolute is of course no other than Supreme Deity, with both Feminine and Masculine aspects represented. In the Malayan version, Mahatala is the male aspect while Jata is the feminine side. The Absolute already contains both manifest and unmanifest aspects as per inductive indications.
Jata representing the lower world (material/physical) and the Moon also indicate the ancient knowledge of the Lunar ‘Fathers’ (creator deities) who hastened the creation of the first root races of humanity. Mahatala as representing the upper world and the Sun, indicates the ancient people’s knowledge of the Solar ‘Fathers’ (creator deities) who helped to breed and accelerate the evolution of humanity after the episode of Lunar creator deities’ involvement.
