Izenzo Zenkolo Eziguquliwe

Izinkolelo zaseBasotho nezimfundiso mayelana nokufa kanye nokulandela impilo ziye zathonywa ukushumayela ivangeli lobuKristu. Ngenxa yalokho, imfundiso ye-Basotho, izinkolelo nemikhuba eguquliwe ishintshiwe ngokuhamba kwesikhathi. AmaBasotho akholelwa ukuthi umuntu (umuntu) unezici ezimbili: umzimba (body) noma inyama (nama), nomoya ongangenawo umoya (umoya, futhi igama lomoya) noma isithunzi (seriti). Umzimba ungokwemvelo futhi ungaphansi kokufa nokubola, kodwa umoya awunakunqotshwa futhi awufi. Ngesikhathi sokuphila umoya uhlala emzimbeni, abanye bakholelwa ukuthi usezinhliziyweni, abanye bekhanda, kodwa umbono ovamile ukuthi unelungelo lomzimba wonke. Umoya ungashiya umzimba ebusuku bese ujikeleza, amaphupho abe ukubonakaliswa kwalezi zihambi. Abathakathi nabaphangi bangenza imimoya yabo ishiye imizimba yabo ngentando futhi iqondise imisebenzi yabo.

Ekufeni, umoya ushiya umzimba bese uhamba eduze. Kuze kube yilapho ithuna lisibekiwe, umoya usengozini njengoba ungashintsha uma ulimi lomuntu oshonile lunqunywe noma umgogodla oqhutshelwa ekhanda ngamadoda ukuba enze imithi eqinile. Ukuze uvimbele lokhu, umzimba uphathwa ngemithi ekhethekile kanye nokugada okugcinwe kuyo kuze kube sekungcwabeni. Ngemuva kwemihlangano yomngcwabo yokugcina eseqediwe, umoya uhamba futhi uqhubeke, abanye bakholwe, ekhaya lasendulo eNtsuanatsatsi noma, abanye bakholwa, ekhaya elisezulwini. Imimoya ingaba yinto enesihluku noma enomusa. Kungenxa yalesi sivuno esingokomoya ukuthi umkhuba wokukhulekela okhokho ususelwe.

Ithonya Lamadlozi

Ngokwesiko iqembu ngalinye lalibhekwa njengelingaphansi kwethonya eliqondile kanye nokuvikelwa kwalabo okhokho (balimo) kanye nekhanda njengelonke ngaphansi kwalabo okhokho benduna.

Ukukholelwa ekutheni ukhokho wathonya ekuphileni kwansuku zonke kuvamile, ikakhulukazi ekuguleni. Yonke isifo esasetshenziselwa ukuba sithathwe kubazali, ababekholelwa ukuthi babangela ukugula kwabaphilayo ukuze babangele ukufa kwabo, ngaleyo ndlela bathole ubungane ezweni elingokomoya. Namuhla nje kuphela izifo ezimbalwa, isb. ukuzithemba, ukulala nokushona, okushiwo abanye okhokho babo ngokuqondile. Bakholelwa ukuthi lezi zingaphulukiswa ngokuncenga imimoya nokubuyisela ubuhlobo obuhle, ngokunikela ngesilwane, noma ngokwenza umsebenzi ongakunaki. Ngakolunye uhlangothi, iBasotho iyaqhubeka ikholelwa ukuthi, ngokujwayelekile, okhokho badlala indima ebalulekile ekuphulukeleni izifo ezihlukahlukene nezifo. Usizo lwabo luvunywa ngokubhula ngudokotela (udokotela), lapho ikhambi lembulwa.

Abahlengikazi baBasotho Nabelaphi Bamoya
