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!!!

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…..

  9. 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.

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

    Rinpoche~~~didn’t know you like horoscope as well! :D 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? :D :D :D -ur fb fan-

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

    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。

  32. 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.

  33. 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。

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

    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?

    Tsem Rinpoche: If we don’t learn dharma, then when obstacles arise in our mind which is often, we cannot apply dharma remedies and dharma methods. When we just work and eat and live and not learn dharma, then we can only apply secular methods which will only yield temporary results. Hence samsara continues on and on. It is important to read/listen to the many articles here on dharma and refresh ourselves and discuss here together without winning or losing, so that our knowledge can grow. With knowledge, when obstacles arise, then easier for us to apply dharma methods and remedies and solve our problems to continue. If we continue this way, we will advance. Tsem Rinpoche

    For Od Howell – Thank you so much for sharing and your interest in His Eminence’s aunt Princess Nirgidma. Princess Nirgidma is indeed a remarkable and very intelligent lady who could hold her own with the men.

    Pastor Jean Ai shared that “she had a traditional Torghut upbringing but thanks to her father who believed his children should have a Western education, she was also visionary for her time. I mean, an Asian woman married to a French diplomat? And fluent in French, and as well as English, Chinese and Russian? And holding conversations and intellectual discourses with men in a time when women were to be seen and not heard? Talk about forging a path for Mongolian women.” http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/my-great-aunt-the-princess.html

    There’s another article you might like also http://www.dayarmongol.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6535:2011-12-09-16-03-45&catid=24&Itemid=300061

    I’m sorry to inform you also that His Eminence has never met her and is not in contact with any of them in the family so we can not help with your request any further.

    I wish you all the best with your research on Princess Nirgidma and looking forward to your fruitful results in the near future.

    With best wishes,
    Pastor Adeline

    The Bionic Woman never remained quiet and hide or avoid – I LIKE PEOPLE WHO TAKE ACTION and not watch and remain silent when something can and should be done. I guess taking action to me is an expression of compassion in action and that is why we are Buddhists/spiritual. We have to be Buddhists in action, not in name only. Whatever religion we believe in or are theists, we are still human who can take good positive action to make a difference and we should make a difference. We should always try to make a difference. Life is not about only good things for ourselves, but the difference we can make in others’ lives. This is so important. ~ His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche . The narration of the relationship between Milarepa and Marpa was so entertaining that one will remember it always.
    The training that Milarepa has to undergo reminds me of the Shaolin Temple shows where the student is made to carry water or rocks from distance river or quarry and how the master made the student work tirelessly to train their mind, to clear away the preconception mind one has.
    It is so like us to have this attitude. I have seen this happening to people where for example they did something good or credible they have this projection that others should “look up at them” or “treat them like a VIP” and when all this does not happen they get angry and their ego comes in and they create so much trouble for others .
    It is true that upbringing plays a big role . For example if a little toddler happens to walk and trip and if adults rush quickly to pick them up and start saying “oh you poor thing ” and then tells the child “let us beat the floor cause the floor made you fall” and the adult then goes to use hand to “beat the floor” what the child learns is “it’s never my fault, it’s always the fault of others”. This is crazy but I think most of you have seen adults doing this when a child falls.
    I notice also in family with a few kids , the oldest are usually more stable and matured while the younger ones tends to be more “baby” even though they have grown up to be adults. This happens cause the oldest child are more independent when they are young, having to do most things themselves . Then comes little brother or sister and the older sibling loves playing the role of the older brother and sister. The older sibling will always run to the younger ones to help in just almost everything . Maybe younger one drops a toy and instead of picking it up himself and older sibling quickly dash over to pick up for the younger one. Thus the younger child will grow up with the preconception that others will be always at their feet doing everything for them and how they should be treated and when things don’t go their way their mind becomes neurotic.
    Thus like Milarepa , one needs to change one’s attitude and preconception mind.
    I will use the story of Milarepa to remind myself not to have a preconception of how things should be .
    Thank you once again Rinpoche for this entertaining but educational video.

    dear his eminence tsem rinpoche,
    although i should work on my disertation about the genocide in mongolia in 1937 as an effect from russian communist policy i can not resist continue to do research about your aunt nirgidma, since i found her story in internet by accident. is it that i am myself half mongolian half german, growing up in both cultures or does she appear to me as a spiritual sister to my beloved grandfather, son of a mongolian nobleman, who studied in 1926 in germany as one of the first mongolian students, i am so much fascinated about her. in opposite to my grandfather who was persecuted by the communists and even arrested twice for political reasons nirgimda seamed to had a happy end. i bought her publication she made 1937 in paris with old mongolian folk songs and gave it this summer when i was in mongolia to my relative, a famous composer, who said he never heard these songs before. i cant let go the idea of writing a book about her and record the songs again for the mongolians of nowerdays. it is very hard to find information in internet. today i even read the whole correspondence between teilhard de chardin and lucile swan to find fragments about nirgidma and it was a kind of revelation. your excellency, can you help me to find her children or any other descendants to find out, if a publication is wished by the family? we mongolians had a very difficult history within the past hundred years and this princess makes us so proud to know that she existed. when the russians banned buddhist religion in mongolia and even changed the alphabet from old mongolian into russian cyrillic letters it was a cut off from the mongolian culture and their traditions.
    i would also like to know if tsedn dorzhi, nirgidmas half brother who stayed in china is still alive? he must be very old now. i hope very much to hear from you, may all the love and peace be with you, yours sincerely, od

    Question asked by Maria
    Your Excellency,
    Greetings of love and peace. I am embarassed with my question but I am taking the courage to do so – why is it that during my recitation and meditation practice I am greatly disturbed by a sudden noise as if someone intentionally kicks the furnitures or noise from the incense and candle burning? I can feel shadows also in the room where I do my practice. I would like to know if there is a remedy on this because I get really startled each time thus preventing me from learning full concentration. The noises start to happen when my body begins to heat up. Is this a sign of obstacle Thank you Your Eminence.


    Response by tsemtulku
    Dear Maria, many experience what you experience. It’s sometimes ‘common’. Do Sindongma’s prayer and mantra for one round before starting your practice daily and the ‘shadows’ will dispel with time. I wish you luck. Tsem Rinpoche

    From His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche

    Today was not a very good day for me. I was washing in the shower and the shower is very small and always had a problem due to lack of air. So I had hyperventilated and starting blacking out and hard to breathe. I had this problems for months now, but only today I almost blacked out. Lucky Pastor Seng Piow was around to help me and wipe me down and get me to a chair. Also when showering due to my weight, my back hurts and hard to wash the legs, so when I bend to wash, it is very difficult. Need a chair in the shower, but cannot fit one. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for your help and wiping me down. Now I am better with the fan on me.

    Pastor Seng Piow found a person from China who can do treatment on neck, shoulder, shoulder blades and back pain problems. Went to try and the diminutive person was strong and quite effective. After searching for months, finally found one that is effective and reasonably priced too. Those areas were painful for a few weeks and today there is some relief. Much better.

    你知道吗?藏传佛教的法会,自修或共修时的唱诵有分细、慢、长、柔和、忿怒等的美妙乐音。这些音调来自虚空,来自传承祖师聆听了来自空行母或本尊自身的微妙唱诵而编排,非为行者自己编辑。

    其含义包括运用音声做供养和赞叹三宝诸尊的功德。同时是修炼自身的气、脉和明点使其得加持行者的凡夫身为适合的容器接受佛法和密法的流露。并可获得身心自在。

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Religion can be useful if we integrate the tenants into our mind and act from it with pure compassion. ~Tsem Rinpoche (here's the talk: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=31207 From: June Tang (Khjb)

All phenomena are moving and does not stand still. What comes will go. What goes returns in another form. Therefore be not fixated on unreliable phenomena developing unnecesary karmas, but develop the mind which is fixed. ~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

We all want to be a part of something big and with good results. But the only way we can be a part of that is if we work hard together with the other members of our Kechara. The time will pass. It can pass with you taking on difficulties or it can pass with you doing nothing. I feel it's better to work hard now and enjoy later than to enjoy nothing now and then end up nowhere later. Prayers and dedications are ok, but hard work must be part of the prayer. ~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

Yamantaka is an emanation of the Bodhisattva Manjushri in the form of Dorje Jigjet. Yamantaka is perhaps the archetypal form of the wrathful (dragpo) class of Tibetan deity, and his practice has always been associated with extremely agonistic ritual powers, often used explicitly to defend not simply the Buddhist Dharma, but those countries and sovereign powers that espouse it. Martin A. Mills, Identity, Ritual and State in Tibetan Buddhism - The Foundations of Authority in Gelukpa Monasticism, p 86. Pastor Adeline

Courage is not doing something in the absence of fear, but it is knowing that something else is more important than fear. So we do it. (Tsem Tulku Rinpoche)_PB

Compassion is realising that others want the same thing as we do. But we also realise that they are more and each of us are only one. So working for the majority is correct. (Tsem Tulku Rinpoche)_PB

Envy and jealousy are very harmful because, you are never ever satisfied with what you have and you never reflect on what you have. You constantly live your life based on what you do not have. (Tsem Tulku Rinpoche)_PB

This is a special statue of Je Tsongkapa. It was made during Tsongkapa's time by a student and offered to Him. It is said to resemble Tsongkapa very much. And this holy statue is now housed in Tashi Lunpo Monastery, Shigatse Tibet. To see, hear and contemplate Je Tsongkapa is so meaningful and collect one aeons of merits.~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)
