6. The Crop-Planting Song

Texte intégral

  • 1 The teller’s name was Ngombuxja. Schröder (1952-53) contains a translation of the lyrics into Germ (...)

1This folksong was collected in 1938 by the German missionary Dominik Schröder in Daquan Village, Dongshan Township, Huzhu Mongghul (Tu) Autonomous County. It was published in Germany in 1959, with a transcription of the lyrics in the International Phonetic Alphabet.1

2Around 1994 Dr. Charles Kevin Stuart brought a copy of this manuscript from the USA and gave it to Limusishiden. In 1995 Dr. Stuart and Limusishiden went to Huzhu County to record a video entitled ‘Teaching English In Mongghul’. Limusishiden then gave a copy of the manuscript to Lu Wenzhong, a Mongghul culture worker, translator of this song. Mr. Lu then transcribed this important folksong into Mongghul pinyin, and later published it along with others in Lu (2009).

  • 2 We do not know who this Mongolian scholar was.

3This folksong begins with a popular Mongghul melody, Tangdarihgiima. Mongghul folksongs sung using the Tangdarihgiima melody are all sung in Mongghul, but their lyrics vary. Singers may even improvise their own lyrical content on the melodic template. At present no Mongghul can explain what Tangdarihgiima means. A Mongolian scholar2 is said to have broken down the phrase as follows: Tang refers to ‘plain’, darihgii means ‘like’, and ma refers to ‘household’. Therefore Tandarihgiima refers to the fact that Mongghul people live in houses on the plain, and this is thought to be in contrast with the Mongols who live in tents on the grasslands.

4The opening sentences of all Tangdarihgiima folksongs are the same:

Tangdarihgiima —
We are the Mongghul khan’s descendants,
We should sing special Mongghul songs,
We should keep our Mongghul customs.

5The narrative that follows this opening refrain differs widely. In the case of the song transcribed here, it may be summarized as follows.

6First, it explains the creation of the earth. In the beginning there was no night and no day, and no moon or sun. People lived in darkness and suffering with nothing to eat and nothing to wear. People reported their situation to the Buddha, and the Buddha then made the sun and moon. After they had been created, so that people would have something to eat the Buddha created highland barley, which he gave to them in a treasure bottle. Then, with the Buddha’s help, the treasure bottle cracked open and highland barley sprouted out of it. Humans then learned how to plant highland barley. Finally, people succeeded in planting highland barley on the plain, using an ox. However, they still didn’t know how to thresh the highland barley. Once again, the Buddha helped them, by introducing threshing. The song then concludes with words similar to those it opened with:

Mongghul khan’s descendants,
Singing special Mongghul songs,
This is our Mongghul custom,
We joyfully make our lives,
Mongghul lives will be prosperous,
We keep our Mongghul customs,
And continue speaking our Mongghul language.

7The song is mostly sung by pairs of men in unison, during drinking parties. Such parties are particularly common during the Spring Festival when relatives visit each other’s homes. The song sounds slow and sorrowful, with a drawn-out melody. It is sung in Mongghul.

Tangdarihgiima
Mongghul haannu kuuxjunwa,
Mongghul daunaange daulaya,
Mongghul kunnu darsuuwa.

唐德尔格玛
蒙古勒汗的子孙,
唱首蒙古勒的歌曲,
这是蒙古勒的习俗。

Tangdarihgiima —
We are the Mongghul khan’s descendants,
We should sing special Mongghul songs,
We should keep our Mongghul customs.

Shde diinu udurdu ni,
Simqandu kun darilaja,
Nara sara ghariji gua,
Simqannu kundu harangghuwa,
Aadal ulaagu log ni gua,
Kundu mosigunu gua,
Kundu idegunu gua.

很久很久以前,
世上已有了人类,
太阳月亮未形成,
人们黑暗中生活,
人们的生活很苦,
没有遮体的衣裳,
没有充饥的食粮。

Long, long ago,
When the human world already existed,
There was no sun or moon,
People lived in darkness,
People lived in suffering,
People had no clothes to wear,
People had no food to eat.

Sangrji Zhuldandiidu xiilaya,
Sangrji Zhuldandii bauguna,
Taawun samba toorghu shdaasila,

禀告卓勒丹迭佛尊,
卓勒丹迭佛尊要降临,
五色锦线织成缎,
扎起了绸缎帐篷,
绸缎帐篷的里面,
锻造了黄金宝座,
在那黄金宝座上,
铺满了莲花骨朵,
在那莲花骨朵上,
恭请卓勒丹迭佛。

This was reported to the Buddha.
The Buddha came down
With five sorts of thread,
A silk tent was woven,
And inside the silk tent
A golden throne was placed.
On the golden throne
Lotus flowers were placed.
On the lotus flowers
The Buddha was welcomed to sit.

Sangrji yaahan bauji irem?
Turong anjiisa bauji irem?
Ghuidar anjiisa bauji irem?
Ghuraandar anjiisa bauji irem?
Sangrji baugu log ghuraan wai,
Turong tingersa bauji irem,
Ghuidar jarim tingersa bauji irem,
Ghuraandar chi dire bausamba.

佛尊怎样降临的?
首次从哪里降临?
其次从哪里降临?
再次从哪里降临?
佛尊这样降临的,
首次从蓝天降临,
其次从半空降临,
再次从宝座降临。

How did the Buddha come down?
From where did the Buddha come down the first time?
From where did the Buddha come down the second time?
From where did the Buddha come down the third time?
The Buddha should come down like this.
First, he comes down from Blue Heaven,
Second, he comes down from mid-air,
Third, he comes down on the throne.

Sangrji anjiijiujesamba?
Turong anjii ujesamba?
Ghuidar anjii ujesamba?
Ghuraandar anjii ujesamba?

佛尊要朝哪里看?
首次要往哪里看?
其次要往哪里看?
再次要往哪里看?
首次佛尊看一看,
看那高高的天空,
太阳月亮未形成,
其次佛尊看一看,
看那无际的天边,
黑暗笼罩着天边,
再次佛尊看一看,
看那脚下的大地,
大地冷的像冰窟。

Where should the Buddha look?
Where should he look first?
Where should he look second?
Where should he look third?
First the Buddha should look
To the high heavens:
The sun and moon were not yet formed.
Second, he should look
To the endless horizon:
The universe was full of darkness.
Third, the Buddha should look
At the Earth:
The Earth was frozen.

有了卓勒丹迭佛,
有太阳月亮星星,
上面三个的光芒,
没有照到天空中,
照在茫茫大地上,
若要照到天空中,
困难多的无法说。

Under the Buddha
Are the sun, the moon, and stars.
A ray of light from each of the three
Has not yet shone over the sky,
And only shines over the earth.
If they shine over the sky
There will be many problems.

Nige duloon moxijiiwa,

太阳月亮和星星,
三个身上没光芒,
黄黄的太阳不暖,
白白的月亮不亮,
青青的星星不闪,
没得到佛尊的光。
高空中祭奠甘露,
太阳才有了光芒,
月亮才有了明亮,
星星才有了闪耀。

The sun, the moon, and the stars —
The three had no rays of light,
The yellow sun wasn’t hot,
The white moon wasn’t bright,
The green stars weren’t bright,
They had not yet received the Buddha’s light.
After offering the sweet dew to the sky
The sun got its light,
The moon got its brightness,
The stars got their shimmer.

People report to the Buddha
On the high Mount Sumeru:
How does the sun rise?
How does the moon rise?
How do the stars rise?
Who reported it to the Buddha?
Shakyamuni told the Buddha.
The Buddha’s decree is:
Pray by casting highland barley,
Pray by sprinkling sweet dew.
The sun, the moon, and the stars
In the blue Heaven of Sumeru,
The sun circles Sumeru,
The moon circles Sumeru,
The stars circle Sumeru,
The brightest star,
Is rising up on the peak of Sumeru.

The sun, the moon, and the stars
Rise from Mount Sumeru.
The sun and moon are very high.
The days in winter are cold.
Why is winter so cold?
The sun is on the peak of Sumeru.
Sumeru is high and its peak is narrow.
The sun goes higher and higher,
And the days turn colder and colder:
This is why the days in winter are cold.
The sun goes higher and higher,
The days get shorter and shorter:
This is why the days are shorter.

The sun in summer
Goes to the lower part of Mount Sumeru:
This is why the days get longer,
As the sun turns
It is at the lower part of Sumeru.
The earth becomes hot.
This is why the days in summer are hot.

After seven days
The treasure bottle’s body
Had a crack in it.
Why did it crack?
Is that auspicious or inauspicious?
It was reported to the Buddha
That on the treasure bottle’s body
A crack was found
As some sort of omen.
It isn’t inauspicious, but auspicious.
Something is growing out of the crack,
But people needn’t worry.
They should sit in meditation for seven days.
The seven-day meditation was finished.
In the crack of the treasure bottle
A narrow, needle-like thing was seen:
A warrior wasn’t seen,
So it isn’t an arrowhead.
They worried about it a great deal.
It was reported to the Buddha.
It’s not a warrior’s arrow,
People needn’t be scared:
It isn’t inauspicious, but auspicious.

Beat it with a stick
Or rub it with two hands.
Those threshed seeds,
Offer them to Heaven and all the deities.
Making the offering,
Thank Heaven —
But it was not known how to eat it.
A report was sent to the Buddha to ask,
And his decree was awaited.
Tell us in great detail,

It was reported to the Buddha.
The Buddha sent his decree:
Frog has taken the highland barley grain
To the bottom of the ocean.
Ask ducks to help:
Ducks swim to the bottom of the ocean,
Take back the highland barley grain,
And put it at the center of the world.
Unfortunately, it was snatched away by Magpie.
Where has Magpie taken it to?
Magpie has put the grain on the peak of a mountain,
That’s where the magpies took it,
How can it be got back?
It is so difficult!

下山回到了家里,
青稞储存在哪里?

Njamyang Buddha4 replied:
On top of themountain
Magpie buried the highland barley grain.
People looked for it,
Climbed up the mountain,
Looked for it on the mountain peak.
Magpie had buried it in the earth.
People dug in the soil with their hands
And found the grain.
They collected the grain
And came back.
Where did they keep it?

Fly up high into the sky,
Catch a dragon,
Put a golden nose ring on it,

Plough the sky twice
With the sound of kadiedie and kadada.
But it’s too hard to plough,
There’s no way to plough the sky.

Climb up high on the mountain,
Catch a yak,
Put a silver nose ring on it,
Put a silver yoke on it,
Attach a silver plough,
Plough the mountain twice
With the sound of harere and halala.
It’s too hard to plough:
There’s no way to plough the mountain.

And beg Heaven for help.
Don’t you wish to plough crops?
It was reported to the Buddha.
What kind of decree did he send?

地上种了青稞后,
青稞慢慢长高了,
青稞黄的饱满了,
没有打碾的法子,
请回答我们的歌。

Finally, people came down to the vast plain,
Caught an ox,
Put a cypress nose ring on it,
Put a cypress yoke on it,
Attached a metal plough,
Tied the rein made from ox-hair rope,
Ploughed the level plain.
They held a stick
And drew the rope
And ploughed the plain twice
With the sound of fuluu and falala.
The soft soil was ploughed.
Ploughing highland barley in the soil,
Earth was found,
After ploughing highland barley in the soil
The highland barley slowly grew,
And barley ripened into grain,
But it was not known how to thresh.

人们的命运转了,

It was reported to the Buddha.
What decree will the Buddha send?
His Buddhist decree has been sent.
All commoners please listen:
Please go to the foot of the high mountain,
Make a rolling thresher out of stone.
Then go back to the level plain,
Make a threshing ground.
Drive a pair of oxen,
Put yokes on them,
Draw the threshing stone attached by a boja.5
The threshing stone is drawn.

Tie the rein made of ox-hair rope,
Hold a stick to drive the oxen.
The threshing stone is rolling on the threshing ground,
People feel happy,
Their stomachs are full,
They have begun new lives.
The Buddha’s wishes have become reality.

Mongghul haannu kuu xjunwa,
Mongghul daunaange daulaya,
Mongghulnu darsuu tingiinge wai,
Naadin xineen sauya joo,
Mongghulnu longshda darlam joo,
Mongghulnu darsuu darlam joo,
Mongghul ugonaa lii mardaaya.

蒙古勒汗的子孙,
唱起蒙古勒的歌曲,
这是蒙古勒的习俗,
欢乐和笑声永不消,
蒙古勒时运定兴旺,
蒙古勒习俗常流传,
蒙古勒语言永不忘。

Mongghul khan’s descendants,
Singing special Mongghul songs,
This is our Mongghul custom —
We joyfully make our lives.
Mongghul lives will be prosperous —
We keep our Mongghul customs
And keep speaking our Mongghul language.

Notes

1 The teller’s name was Ngombuxja. Schröder (1952-53) contains a translation of the lyrics into German.

2 We do not know who this Mongolian scholar was.

3 It is uncertain where this is.

4 ‘Jam dbyangs zhad pa, a living Buddha in Labrang Monastery in Xiahe Township, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province.

5 A wooden plank with two holes at its ends. One hole is attached to rods of iron at either end of the threshing stone. The other hole is tied to a rope so that it can be drawn by horses during threshing.
