Chinese Horoscopes may not have any religious basis. However, if it’s based on 5,000 years worth of human observation, similar trends can be found. It is the culmination of 5,000 years of observation by the ancient Chinese scholars to culminate into the analysis of each sign. Some are very accurate. Observation is the best way to gather information.

The Chinese Lunar horoscope is different from the  Western zodiac. The year you are born in isn’t the only thing taken into consideration, but also the month you were born, the time of your birth and your Western zodiac sign.

It is always interesting and entertaining to read about yourself, your good points and your horoscoped weaknesses. I guess knowing more about yourself will help you to work on what you need to work on.  It is nice to know who you can work, partner, and be friends with… also who you would find some conflict with perhaps. Of course getting along and not getting along ultimately relies on you. But it is interesting to see who you have ‘natural’ conflicts with if no efforts were made towards the relationship. It is also interesting to share with friends personality traits of people you would like to understand more about. It is always nice to have a some lead in order to find a beginning in our relations with others.

I thought this section on horoscopes would keep you coming back for further contemplations and it’s always interesting to find out more about others. Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others. Do not think whatever a horoscope says is fixed or permanent. It is a general guide to start from somewhere but don’t be stuck where it is… nothing is stagnant.  For example Snakes do not get along with Boars according to the horoscopes… But they can get along if they work at it. Horoscopes help you find ahead of time what we need to be aware of with other I guess.

Do take a look below to see which animal sign you are… It will lead to interesting discussions, ideas, and introspection’s. Have fun and enjoy. I put it here for my blog friends to enjoy… so please enjoy and share with others!!!

    I keep coming back to this chart and its quite incredible how relevant most of the information is in here. It really sums up someone rather well… It gives an insight into why someone is the way they are and it is all due to the time they were born.

    Could the time one is born be the workings of Karma as well? It surely must be as highly attained masters have total control over their rebirth, they could in fact choose the time/year they are born into… simple logic. Or do they by sheer workings of karma are born into such times based on their merits… hhmmmm… I wonder?

  2. Adrian Cho on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:14 am

    This is so nice and wonderful, that now I can knows more about each sign of chinese horoscopes in more details. Really likes this post so much and very helpful too.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post to us.

  3. CK Siah on Sep 6, 2013 at 5:38 am

    仁波切的十二生肖算命图都很精准。是可以为我们的人生做参考,但不要太谜信。

    我个人认为其实我们的生晨八字就是我们人生的功课表和业障印记,个人的好坏性格都被记录下来。

    但我相信只要我们相信佛法和禅修自己或跟着上师的教诲,累积功德,那我们的命运也会跟着改善。

    谢谢仁波切给我们的分享。

  4. Low KHJB on Aug 31, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.The Chinese horoscopes did highlight some of my characteristic. But I would take it to be a strong reminder to myself to be more mindful in my thoughts and action when I am dealing with others.Every action there would be a reaction.If I would be kind to others then reaction would be similar.I the context of my horoscope,my own ego and arrogance would be my biggest challenge to sub due .I would use the knowledge of the dharma to assist my self to follow the right path to overcome the so called inner nature of the Chinese horoscopes.

    点击看看你是属于什么。我是天秤鼠,蛮准的。为什么我们会在那个时辰,日子出生,必定和我们前世自造的业力有关。我们了解自己的基本性格后,不是停留在哪儿,而是学习如何将优点变得更好,改善缺点。

  6. Albert Ratchaga on Aug 28, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Horoscope is through 5000 years of observation and being set with the closest possibilities of each and every character, it is the same as how Buddha observe and learn from the human life’s cycle and gain realization, I would say Horoscope is quite accurate when we live our life accordingly but it still does not work on every single human being, because of different background and situation.

    I used to have friend who are very obsessed about horoscope, they would look at horoscope in the morning almost on a daily basis, when there is days that they missed out the horoscope, they will feel very uneasy for the day and trying to reduce their activity almost to the minimum. there is so much of insecurity in their life. Horoscope may be accurate in certain way, it actually meant as a guidance for us and not for us to live in it.

    If a person who knows to utilize horoscope, they should learn about their ‘potential’ weaknesses and to work on the improvement, not ignore it and hope for miracle. We reap our own created karma, no one horoscope can help us to avoid our karma, we still have to work our way through for any and every situation arises.

  7. Shelly tai on Aug 27, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you for sharing this information . I used to like to read about my fortune during beginning of every year that was those day before I meet the dharma, after knowing the dharma I think the important thing is our mind how our mind react to sudden situation with dharma even is a negative situation we can use dharma to resolve our problem. As a guide I think is good to know someone horoscope so that we can talk to them more easily.

  8. Cliff on Aug 24, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    I don’t really know how much i can trust or believe in Chinese Horoscopes although it may most of the time be quite accucrate, we should still have to see it as a scientific fact that it is true because it has gone through 5000 years of observations so it should count for something i think haha. I am a snake and after reading through the description of the strength and weakness i do agree and disagree in certain areas but maybe in denial or over confident to certain descriptions. But it is definitely very entertaining and fun to read Chinese Horoscopes. One fact i strongly agree with is that snakes find it very difficult to have trust in others which has to be earned but can be easily lost when lied to, deceived or betrayed. I find it very hard to trust people and am quick to be judgemental, i hope i would be able to change and improve one of these personality traits of mine. Thank you for sharing this with me Rinpoche, i found it very interesting to read.

  9. wansan on Aug 23, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I’m always interested in reading my own horoscope and zodiac. Every morning I will flip over my Star Newspaper to the part where the Horoscope is and read them. Of course like what Rinpoche says, “Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others.” I use them as a guideline of the day so that I know ‘who’ or ‘what’ to avoid/pay more attention to. Thank You Rinpoche
    for sharing this.

  10. Adrian Cho on Aug 21, 2013 at 3:41 am

    This is so wonderful and meaningful too, that I can knows more about Chinese Horoscopes of each sign. I also can read through every sign on this blog.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice post.

  11. Jessica Yap on Aug 20, 2013 at 1:54 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I am a tiger, hear me roar! Hehe
    Some traits do stand true! And I even looked up the signs of my friends and family and it describe their nature well. 🙂

    Sometimes if we know how certain people are, we can learn deliver our speeches and actions in a skillful manner.. It doesn’t mean that this is the manual for life to dictate how a certain horoscope should be. It is merely a guideline to learn more abt ourselves and the people around us so that we can communicate better to have a better relationship. 🙂

    Thnk you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  12. tenzin llhamo on Aug 19, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the above. As mentioned, above are based on years of observation and shouldnt let it control who we really are. Although it might say that certain signs are not compatible but if we work towards it, we can definitely work well with each other and people around us. I dont actually believe in these signs but no harm reading about it and get some info here and there.

  13. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    It was interesting to know our behaviour under chinese horoscope. But of course it was a guidance only, , everyone still different characters even though under same group.btw, I m a dragon.

  14. David Lai on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    I love Chinese horoscopes because like many other ancient Chinese esoteric knowledge, I find them to be accurate and strangely compelling. However, I am not really a fan of the predictive quality of Chinese horoscope but I do find that psychological aspect very interesting. I think the account on my horoscope was pretty accurate with a few minor misses.

    I think this observational knowledge makes for an accurate description of the personalities of each of the zodiac sign. I believe that this is a good guide for people and can be somewhat Dharmic is the self-reflection and helps us to apply the right remedies to counter character flaws and weaknesses. It would definitely help us to work or get along with certain characters as well. Ultimately, the Dharma is the best Zodiac for people. It just needs us to apply it and experience the rewards of transformation.

  15. AdelineTan on Aug 19, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Out of curiosity i just read my horoscopes from here and found it to be very true and i enjoyed reading it he he.

    Dear Rinpoche, I’m a rabbit, my sister is an ox, my father is a dragon and my mother is a horse. I don’t know much about Chinese Horoscopes but I do know that if you are 6years apart than another person, then your relationship between each other wouldn’t be good.

  18. tsemtulku on Sep 5, 2011 at 6:54 am

    The element you are born into has tremendous effect on your personality. A fire snake would be more aggressive than those born under a water snake. Water snakes are more quiet and not as aggressive but very versatile. Metal snakes are more stubborn or stuck on ideas as oppose to a fire snake. Fire snakes can be very vengeful where as a wood snake is more forgiving. Elements are important to understand and how it affects you. Take a read and learn up about yourself.

      Don’t play fire with a snake.Grrrr

  19. Uncle Eddie on Aug 26, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    Like our guru said, “Horoscopes are a general overveiw, but everything can be changed, so can karma also.” It all depends on whether the person has a strong determination and desire to overcome the undesirable predictions to make the necessary changes. Even the culmination of human observations centered on their trends of longtime behavioural traits can never be as impregnable as that of karma. HOWEVER, the strong belief on horoscope reading is no more centered on the chinese and asian nationals only. Many non-chinese nationals from the americans and european blocks have joined in the the astrological wagon, to propel the futuristic forecast into a reality for a good future. Every living being from the time of their birth wants happiness and not sufferings. It is therefore important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness depending upon their own efforts and not on the forecast of the horoscopes.

  20. yek yee on Aug 25, 2011 at 1:45 am

    When I just born, my parents already used Chinese horoscope to identify my character which I hated they do like this. After I had growth up, I started read the horoscope, ya sometime it is quite accurate.But, as a reference or self-reflection is good, to me. Especially the main character is quite accurate!!!I like the part “How to work with…” very useful,hehe…!!!In Chinese we called 知己知彼,百战百胜也!

    • Frederick Law on Aug 25, 2011 at 5:20 pm

      i agree, in chinese horoscope, character wise it is 90% accurate, but still the environment and people they mingle with also plays a part in shaping their character, so it is mostly like a guide to scan through the principal of the nature.

  21. Frederick Law on Aug 25, 2011 at 12:04 am

    thank you for sharing the horoscope with us Rinpoche. i must say i was an avid believer in horoscope especially when it comes to the chinese animal zodiac during every chinese new year, i was so eager to know what is the luck of my zodiac sign on the coming new year, i am born in the year of Dog. most of the time what the horoscope predicted might be accurate, but most of the time its not, but still delusions clouded me, and i keep on reading for so many years, and still believing in the prediction.

    it is when i learn Dharma, and understand about the cause and effect of Karma, and from Dearest Rinpoche explanation here, i started to see how the luck of one person does not really depends on the horoscope foretold, for horoscope is just a guide and prediction, but it is us who determine how the course of our life should be, even we can override the negative things through applying dharma. for it is due to our low minded thinking and the ignorance of karma that we blame luck, surrounding and ppl on on our misfortune.

    Thank You again Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article with us, for many to learn more about other zodiac sign, and in the same time allowing us to understand we can override what is negative in horoscope fortune telling.

    i wish Rinpoche good health and long life. with folded hands.

  22. Tsem Rinpoche on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    Horoscopes are a general overview, but everything can be changed. Karma is not solid and permanent hence, neither are the horoscopes. If we do nothing, then what the horoscopes can reflect what is happening with us…but If we do something about it we can override everything in horoscopes and samsara.

  23. patsy on Aug 24, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    Even though I do not have an interest in horoscope, out of curiosity I check out my sign and a few of my family members and find that it is quiet accurate.

  24. Steve Tobias on Aug 24, 2011 at 10:06 am

    This is very interesting, looked up myself (Dog) and a few other people and it’s pretty accurate.

    I had someone close to me who was very into astrology. I found it frustrating because often times it made her very fearful and anxious, sort of defeatist, like things are a certain way and one can’t change them or act. It seemed to contradict karma, and cause negative results.

    If astrology and horoscopes are accurate then maybe we have the karma to be born under a certain sign at a certain time — it would make a lot of sense.

  25. Janice Kwok on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Towards the end and beginning of each year, i wld start veering myself to the section on horoscopes, both western and the chinese, to read and check on what is store for me for the year..really kiasu…hahahha. Having started now on Dharma, it is interesting to read it, not becos, the prophecies/projections by those authors will be more real but you start to think why did i become so uptight when i used to deal with those horoscope signs that are said to be less compatible with me? Thank you Rinpoche for starting this section to teach us who have heavy negative karma to learn how to contemplate and change our minds and behaviour towards others.

  26. oscar on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Rinpoche~~~didn’t know you like horoscope as well! 😀 Am doing vedic astrology and sometimes I recommend Kechara to my customers. Explore vedic astrology as well ya~~! I know next year there will be a very powerful and inspirational spiritual person rising from Asia.. is it you? 😀 😀 😀 -ur fb fan-

  27. VC on Aug 23, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    This horoscope is quite different because it is written by an enlightened beings and not ordinary human beings.it might refer to anyone of you.hehehe.

  28. Nicholas on Aug 23, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    To be frank I didn’t really follow much on horoscope.
    Use to think that attitude and behaviors influences by family, environment and friends. Not even bother to analyze or want to know peoples character as just so ignorance and selfish.

    But after learning about compassion (which is still learning) we need to understand and even have to be more mindful about people personality.

    Not to criticize but knowing how to work with them. As Rinpoche mentioned the personalities can be changed with patience, kindness & sincerity. By knowing our shortfall and we recognize it, it’s time to work on it for better.

    Thanks Rinpoche for blogging this.
    A lot of people said it is so true to them. Me too. Hehehe…..

  29. Su Ming on Aug 23, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Horoscope and Zodiac Signs used to be my favourite topic to read beginning of every year. I used to have many books by various author. It was like my bible….ie will I be rich? will my career be successful? who and what to avoid?, which animal sign should I avoid or be friends with? and etc..hehehehe.

    But after knowing dharma I realised that it is not the signs or animal that you were born under which mold us but the karma (good and bad) which is the driving force of who we are and MOST IMPORTANTLY how we can change things around for the better.

  30. VC on Aug 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Chinese horoscope is written by human.Human make mistakes and not God.Our life is fixed at birth.Human beings is watch by ’28 constellations heavenly beings’ up in the heaven monitoring each and every human beings deeds.i am not sure which heavenly beings responsible to fixed human life at birth or it is just follow some causal laws.It is written in some of buddhism books.So why bother horoscope if there is a religion to follow.I guess the heavenly beings will send their heavenly retinue or sages such as Sakyamuni Buddhas down to earth to save and liberate humanity when the time is right.

  31. henry ooi on Aug 23, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Even though Chinese read and some rely on Chinese horoscopes there are also people from different Western countries who do. But as Rinpoche writes here these horoscopes do not mean that they are 100% accurate as each individual has his/her own mind. They are a good guide and I agree one should not get caught up in them thinking that a person’s characteristics according to the Chinese horoscopes are fixed and that he/she cannot change.

  32. tsemtulku on Aug 23, 2011 at 12:52 am

    Yes I am the year of the wood snake. My root teacher Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a wood snake also.

    2016年9月18日对多杰雄登修持者可以被称为一个特别的日子,因为达赖尊者在法国斯特拉斯堡的泽尼斯中心,对公众发表说明如果有些人想要修持多杰雄登,他们是可以的。达赖尊者还告诉大众说,目前的甘丹寺和色拉寺邻近寺院的僧人都有在跟随这项修持。达赖尊者所提出这几个重点,简直是个值得令人兴奋与开心的事情。因为,这20年以来,雄登修持人仿佛活在一个没有宗教自由的国家里,甚至还被他人歧视、隔离、欺压等等,每天必须过着恐惧与痛苦的日子。

    直到这一天的来临,9月18日,多杰雄登修持者就如见到曙光一样,得到达赖尊者所告知说我们是可以修多杰雄登护法。相信不久的将来,慢慢的得到人们了解与接受此修持法。无论如何,就如上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的建议,我们必须有和平的心与站稳本身的立场,甚至要继续地弘扬多杰雄登的传承与祂修持法所带给众生的利益。

    在此祈望,会有更多人明白与了解多杰雄登的来龙去脉的真相。了解祂所带来的利益而不是伤害。而至于不明白实情真相的人,不要因为信仰的差异而互相排挤或互相批评。如果长久下去,要达到人与人和谐相处的目标就会遥遥无期。

    I just cannot comprehend the complexities of the human mind on how they would spin and turn news into their own fantasies and trying to outshine the others. Peace seems to have been evading us homo sapiens for as long as I can remember.
    Why is it that we must fight, argue, antagonize, criticize, hate, or insult another and what are the reasons for all these? It has always never fail to amaze me on the question on what do one hope to achieve or gets out of all these. My analogy is that it is just to satisfy the thirsty, corrupted, twisted evil mind and after having achieved and hurt another person and then what? Is it going to make you wiser, better or a cleverer person? I would assume it to be a definite “No” perhaps the good feeling may linger on for a while but rest assured it is never lasting and this satisfaction would dissipates with time. All these are transient thoughts generated by one and no matter how much food we feed to this evil monkey mind it can never be appeased.
    Meditation is an antidote to all these and it is within our reach therefore like what my Guru says it is timely that we ‘Give Peace A Chance’ and try to explore the other side of our mind through meditation. Perhaps one may be surprised by the result of this exploring.

    Good reminder and advice for us .To remind us of loving and caring all sentient beings and always be mindful.Very common for birds to fly straight into our windows that will cause them injuries to their feathers.Hence we must protect them in away ,by severals methods by adjusting our windows as suggested by Rinpoche .
    At least it could reduce the risk and injury .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    These pictures are really lovely. It reminds us that animals are living beings that have feeling, love and care for their little ones too. Just like us human, whom parent’s love is infinity towards their children.

    So please respect their existence and do not harm them.

    Very weird and really strange addictions…..cannot imagine its true after reading these strange individual addictions .they did it out of curiosity ,a sense of loneliness ,depression. and so forth. Whatever their action is, need to be treated as long term might ruin their lives.
    Do hope they have will power and determination to cut off their strange addictions, to carry on with their daily life.They have always a choice to do what they have and,choose what to do to be on the right track in life.

    感谢仁波切分享这编令人鼓舞和兴奋的好消息 !

    尊贵的达赖尊者亲口表示大家可以选择修持雄登护法法门, 还提议了两大修持多杰雄登法门的寺院 : Shar Gaden寺和Serpom寺 !
    达赖尊者还表示, 多杰雄登不会影响和减短祂的寿命, 那么无形中就表示一样尊贵达赖尊者地位高成就的高僧也不会受到雄登的影响。那么, 也就是说, 在尊贵达赖尊者和其他高僧的曼达拉里的弟子也不受影响了。那么总结来说, 雄登护法是不会伤害反而会护持佛法成长 !

    因为这消息出来以後, 那一群专破坏, 欺负, 歧视持修雄登的人就不会那么明目张胆的出来破坏, 雄登持修者就有安乐的环境下生活 !

    这是一个好的转变, 也是一个大跨越的好消息 !��

    也非常感恩慈悲尊贵的达赖尊者公佈这讯息 ! ��

    最重要的就是将来的日子里, 佛法得以利益更多的人 !

    Glad to know that scientists have recently discovered that the ozone hole is starting to heal.Is a great encouragement for us to keep up the good work. It would take some time for fixing other environment problems with every one of us and international cooperation. Thats the reason many devoted Buddhists live their lives with discipline and awareness, cultivating the attitude of doing no harm to the environment.In the Buddhist teachings, every action we take creates a chain of reactions as said by Rinpoche.That is very true.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Nowadays, cancer is very common word to many people yet not many people know about the spiritual practices which might heal the cancer patient and some are fully recovered. In Buddhism, we believe on karma which is part of cause to cancer or diseases. Some Cancer patient are very panic and pessimistic, this will not heal cancer patient but will make them worst.
    By doing spiritual practice and undergo medical treatment in the same time,it will purify our bad karma and this will also help the cancer patient to be optimistic and always in positive mind.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this informative write up.This really help many people to be optimistic when cancer attack them.

    In Buddhism, all people are encouraged to love all living beings including the animals. The Buddha teachings told us that is not right for us to take away the life of others. We cannot deny that animals also have fear and pain as do human beings. Therefore, it is wrong to take away their lives. Besides, we should more proactive to protect the animals whenever we can.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting topic which showed one way of protecting the birds to get hurt from the transparent windows.

    Sad ,,,very sad knowing the secrets of Ukraine’s shameful holocaust.
    My tears flows freely after looking at those horrible sad pictures even though it happen many years ago.Could not imagine how those who have witnessed that holocaust gone through.Just because of differences of religion and faith between them they have suffered, executed,tortured and so forth.French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois,uncovered the secrets for all to see and understand of Ukraine’s holocaust’.Its a good for us and the rest of the world to know and told to younger generation.How Dorje Shugden practitioners are treated in Tibet and outside of Tibet was similar to this holocaust in Ukraine.Dorje Shugden practitioners due to the ban and discrimination against them but nothing compared to the innocent Jewish people.
    May all the conflicts will end soon so as all do live harmonious and peaceful .
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this touching article.

    For Monsanto, Portugal although the landscape is all around the big rocks but the people can still build around it with beautiful design. I think human are adaptable as long as they wish too live there.

    The long standing relationship between Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden is not without conflicts. The enmity started since the time of the 5th Dalai Lama, mainly because Dalai Lama’s attendants were jealous of the highly attained Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and felt assured that he will threatened the new position as the King of Tibet of Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last incarnation of Dorje Shugden, as he entered clear light as a result of being murdered by Dalai Lama’s attendants, he arose as Dorje Shugden. As a result of deep regret for what his attendants had done, the Dalai Lama built Trode Khangsar Chapel as an attribution to Dorje Shugden. It is the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. Even since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Thank you very much for this article. Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

    It is fascinating to read about the story of Dalai Lama especially His Holiness’ 5th reincarnation. 1642 marked a significant year for the 5th Dalai Lama was installed as the king of Tibet and it changed history forever. 1649 is the year when the famous Potala palace was completed and it is still standing tall today. It is notable that the 5th Dalai Lama visited Beijing in the year 1652 at the beginning of the Qing dynasty. During the early years that the 5th Dalai Lama was in power, his attendants were jealous of the renowned Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and assassinated him in the year 1656. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as the Dharma Protector in the form of Dorje Shugden. Some years later, in 1662, Panchen Lama entered clear light.

    Birds is our feathery friends who co-exist in our environment that we pay so little attention to them. We often forget they have feelings like us and definitely suffer from pain, cold and hunger just like us. As we pay so little attention to them as our neighbors, our actions inevitably create causes for them to suffer. Even though birds spread their wings and fly high, our concrete jungle is a trap for them and they get suffer the hurt that we created. Hence, it is our responsibility to be more mindful and since we can reverse the harm done, we should at least find remedy to lessen the possibility for them to get hurt. Thank you very much Rinpoche for this article as a reminder for us to be mindful towards animals living in our environment.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that.

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our 'pleasures'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it's too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche
Dear Rinpoche,  I\'ve made some porridge for Rinpoche to have later when Rinpoche is hungry.  Thank you,  Beatrix (Sometime a pot of porridge tells you so much about another person and you just know why you appreciate them so much. Beatrix is such a caring and kind young person. It\'s a pleasure to work with her and have her around. Tsem Rinpoche)

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.
