The Chinese Zodiac

Discover more about yourself according to ancient Chinese tradition

Every individual’s personality has a centered “self” and many layers around it. Each layer has a different size, texture and aura, and when combined, it makes up who the person truly is. The Chinese Zodiac or Chinese Horoscope uses details of your birth to determine your basic personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, your compatibility with other people and even to forecast your future.

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.

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.

Elements
The 5 elements – Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, Earth – are an integral part of the Chinese Zodiac which define a universal balance. Every one of us are made up of these elements and are deeply connected to them. A person’s characteristics are determined both by the ruling element of their sign as well as the element of the year of their birth.

Rising Sign
One of factors that affects a person’s characteristics is the time of birth. E.g. A Rooster born in the hour of the Ox will have a different personality compared to a Rooster born in the hour of the Snake. The sign related to the hour of birth is called the Rising Sign, and the individual will experience the effect of the Rising Sign in various degrees.

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!!!

    Horoscopes have a big influence on our life as it determine certain traits of character that influence our actions – and hence our results as well. I think everyone kind of knows this. However, what I learn from Rinpoche is that although our traits have taken some form, we can still change our fate and destiny by conscious choices and consistent effort.

    So, it is good to know our stars but knowledge should not stop there but expand to learning how to work our stars to create the most beneficial results

    Chinese astrology is a great topic to research if on an extended visit to China. You will have great fun and perhaps get sufficient insight to get you thinking about your life and goals.

  5. Pastor Han Nee on May 30, 2015 at 3:02 pm

    If it’s got 5000 years of wisdom behind it, it’s something to think abut. From the Zodiac table , you can at least make calculated guesses on how to get round a business partner or how to work to a certain extent to effect a smoother more successful relationship with the partner of your choice.

    If you have dharma as well, then it helps you to see when these calculated guesses and moves do not turn out according to your expectations.To see and to accept.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Can someone please help me determine which Chinese zodiac animal hour I was born in?
    I was born at 7:30pm Central Time on the 29th of July. I have been told that I was born in the Dog hour, but I have also been told I was born in the Rooster hour. I’m not sure which is correct.

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 19, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    I think that a Buddha probably transcends all kinds of zodiac signs and is not limited by the limitations of each animal. Still 5000 years of observations there is some truths to , may not be absolute but there are many parallels that makes sense to the ordinary person.

  23. Sean Wang on Apr 18, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    This part of the blog is only available because of the hard work of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and the E-Division Team. It is extremely fun to see how the Zodiac influences my personality. Although some of the points are inaccurate (Probably because I, myself, am quite an irregular person), most of the points are quite true to me.

    There is so much hard work at play here and I must congratulate those involved as those involved in the creation of this section has created the causes to satisfy people’s thirst for information and superstition. I rejoice! A lot of merit is gained by this action.

    “Tiger is the animal that represents authority. They are proud and will exert their leadership as they are born leaders. Forceful and aggressive, they are usually in the lead and it is difficult to deny them their rights. ”

    This is so true! I am very aggressive. hehe. The whole page is so fun to play with. I can find out more about other chinese horoscopes with just a few clicks!

    Rinpoche has indicated that though chinese horoscopes may not have any religious basis, but it is based on 5,000 years worth of human observation by ancient chinese scholars. The culmination into the analysis of eachsign for some can be very accurate, but Rinpoche did caution that the result of such prediction should not be taken as ‘fixed’ or permanent, as nothing is permanent. Each personality sign has mitigating factors and everything can be overriden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashion sincerity for others. Nevertheless, just take it with a pinch of salt for fun and easy reading and enjoy it as entertainment.

  41. Koh Hee Peng on Jul 13, 2012 at 12:34 am

    This particular page on Chinese Zodiac definitely has improved signficantly as compared to my last visit. Now this page is very user friendly and whatever information that we need pertain to the Chinese Zodiac is just within a click of a button on the main page itself, be it the relationship 2 different chinese zodiac, or the relationship between the Chinese and Western Zodiac on the month that we were born.

    Many thanks to the efforts from E-Division that make Chinese Zodiac fun to learn :D .

  42. DR on Jul 12, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    This is a very comprehensive writeup. Thank you to all involved in this effort. You must have done alot of research to be able to come up with all these information. Even navigation is easy.

    Very often i refer back to this blog post after meeting someone new. It is akin to looking at the shape of the spout of a teapot and you will know how best to pour the tea without spilling it. When you know of a person’s strength and weaknesses, you will know how best to harness their strength while helping them improve their weaknesses.

    Having said that, these facts are basic characteristics of people in general. Their personality and perspective changes after they receive dharma knowledge. So I would use these information wisely and not blindly.

  43. Li Kheng on Jul 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    What I like most about this horoscope is: it gives us a general idea about our natural tendencies but it also proposes efforts we can consciously make to overcome the “weakness” we may possess. This is very typical of Tsem Rinpoche where I learn that we have the power to make a change.

    I remember that Karma Chart that Tsem Rinpoche created where Rinpoche showed us that the choices we make and the action we take can cause a change to our so called destiny. For example, we can engage in purification acts like consistent daily sadhana, puja etc. to purify our negative karma (black karma). This approach to viewing karma is very empowering because we do not just say: oh, it is my karma to be lazy…it is my karma to be a failure etc. If we view karma the way Tsem Rinpoche has taught us, we can say: yes, I must have very strong imprints of laziness due to habituation from past lives. However, if I practice moral discipline and develop the new habit of being hardworking, I can collect the merits to purify my negative karma and cause the creation of positive karma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always giving us the opportunity to learn and be better.

  44. henry ooi on Jul 11, 2012 at 4:52 pm

  49. Joy on Jun 21, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    This is such an awesome section in the blog because like it or not, we love to read about our characters and other people’s. This is not superstitions…it is ancient science which has been around for ages and practised in many cultures. It is a guideline for us to gauge and learn about ourselves and others so we can get along better or better yet induced with Dharma… to help the other person better. Perhaps if we know that particular person’s qualms and quirks… we can better serve/benefit them ;)

    The blog team worked really really hard in researching and writing and creating this whole section up!!! Thank you selfless ppl. And thank you Rinpoche!

  50. nicholas on Jun 18, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Knowing the characteristic our Zodiac sign and others not just about knowing it for personal advice but it’s also to understand others and how we can get and work together to achieve harmony.

    Thanks Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    Thank you for this simple and easy “just click” app. Now I can be a fake feng shui/ astrologer and dispense zodiac advice. Hehehe (kidding!)

    The Chinese Zodiac (生肖), is a system that relates each year to an animal and its reputed attributes, according to a 12-year mathematical cycle and is popular in several East Asian countries such as China, Korea and Japan.

    Its fantastic how horoscopes can teach people to be better, kinder, less angry, more patient etc…. what a great tool to impart good human values on others!

    The writers really worked super hard on this – researching, comparing notes, writing etc… without the content, would be nothing to talk about! They did it uncomplainingly, lead by Jean Mei, who worked overtime to pull the content together. The only thing we could not write original content for is the Daily Horoscopes… I do hope someday that there will be an astrologer among us who is able to do this pro bono!

    The horoscope reading is amazingly accurate. Fun! Been reading on my friends’ horoscope. Great guidelines to learn how to communicate effectively with my friends.

    Effective communication is important because many problems are created from miscommunication. It’s part of practising dharma to put in the effort to understand another person.

  67. Steve Tobias on Sep 20, 2011 at 12:43 am

    Wow very cool. Astrology communities will love this and maybe get some dharma.

    Since very young, I’ve never accepted what ordinary life had to offer. I have never seen any true or deep lasting purpose in it. I would see my parents and their peers and always hoped my life will not turn out like theirs which is very banal. I am not criticizing them at all, but it was not for me. I was a always a seeker. I always find books on spirituality, Buddhism, metaphysics, paranormal, yogis, Tibet, Hindu masters, bigfoot, aliens and the likes. I always knew I would cross the big ocean and live far from where I grew up. I just knew. I dreamed of mountains, meeting great masters of tantra & studying with them & then living in mastering of spiritual awakening. I use to often meditate on Avalokitesvara & Manjushri. I can still remember that I did not want an ordinary life. Fear of death use to visit me often. I would meditate on the fragility of life & how it would end and how best was to use my life. I concluded it would be like the Mahasiddhas of the past. To live and practice like the great Mahasiddhas of the past would be the best way to use my life and spend my time. This yearning in me was very strong. I was going to do this or die trying I use to think. Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank You Mr Tan for sharing something about yourself with all of us.

    The opening of this article resonates with what I encountered. After learning a little bit about dharma, I feel less compelled to hold on to my self-cherishing image, which had developed and evolved over time into this humongous inflated egoistic monster. It is as if that I started to shred the attachment to the monster, or at least attempted to. As a result, I let go of what I perceived as the best perceived image for myself and just act the way I would like to (of course as appropriately to the occasion as possible). I see this change in myself as a positive one. It is as if I have returned to the younger me, when I was carefree, but with dharma knowledge in my system. How wonderful.

    Thank You Rinpoche, and Mr Tan for this blog article. I will keep up my practice based on His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s teaching.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this quote. This is a very good reminder to me especially, who always fear and lazy to face the difficulty and think of other people’s perception on me.

    I agree that we should have a different mindset that our action is to inspire others and not stressing it on ‘me’.

    Thank you again for always encourage and motivate us to do better.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article as it provides a very good definition of karma.

    Karma is not a punishment but an action that will bring positive and negative result based on our intention. By understanding this we will be more mindful with our every thought, speech and action.

    The ‘Law of change’ again reminded me to always remember that if we don’t want to go through a certain condition then we must learn and change it. It is until we learn that we will not need to experience it again.

    Thank you again for sharing this article.

    一个民主的国家都会以人民为主,达到一定的共识,然后设立严谨的条例或措施来维护和保障人民的利益。而芒康县人民政府也因为要维护人民的安全与和平相处,因此颁布此通告来制止他人有意利用多杰雄登(俱力护法神)供废分歧而制造社会的纷争。此通告里的十条规例非常清楚的列出,如果他人意图的利用多杰雄登的课题来制造纷争和破坏民族团结等,此人将会被起诉和负起刑事的责任。

    这是一个值得高兴和赞扬的公告。因为一个开明的政府,才能够让当地人民可以有信仰自由的保障和继续地修持多杰雄登。而当每个人都可得到护法的庇佑,他们不但可以专心的持修和同时也可以宣扬佛法,利益更多人。

    虽然目前芒康县的人口只有八万一千人得到人民政府的保障,可以继续地修持多杰雄登。不过,相信不久的将来,芒康县的附近,如贡觉县、左贡县、察雅县等等甚至整个中国或是世界各地的政府都可以了解到多杰雄登护法是可以带给每个人和平与和谐。

    感谢仁波切这篇值得高兴的博文。祈愿大家得到多杰雄登护法的加持,世界和平。

    The core of the issue never sway from the discrimination imposed by the Tibetan leadership on Dorje Shugden practitioners. The badge mandated by Sera Jey is evidentially one of those unjust rulings that instead of promoting peace, love and harmony, it spreads hatred, discrimination and suffering. These actions are blatantly against the teaching of Buddha and Lam Rim, not to mention against basic human rights and freedom of religion.

    What bothers me and pain my heart very much is the fact that these anti-Buddhism rulings were imposed by one of the most prestige Tibetan Buddhism Monastery college. I grew up watching movies and reading stories that depict how monks from Shaolin Buddhist Temple would rather die in honor than to let villains take a life of the innocent. What Sera Jey had done shocked me to the core. Has the world become so degenerated where Buddhism institution values fame, glory and material gain over the duty to be compassion? And allow ignorance to rule instead of confronting the Shugden issue with logic, reasoning and dialogue?

    To the people in Sera Jey, I hope you will come to realize that this ruling will have long and unduly negative effect on Tibetan Buddhism and on practitioners’ spiritual practice. We are already living in an era far away from Buddha’s pure teachings, full of distractions and disasters; please do not create more suffering and causes to divert us from the path.

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, Joy and Pastor David for the latest news from Sera Jey. This opens my eyes that the 3 poisons can be in any form or shape.

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche is a renowned lama who is the longest Gaden throneholder in history. He was also the tutor to the 6th HHDl, 12th HHDL, 13th HHDL in his previous lifetimes. Before Kyabe Ling Rinpoche entered clear light, he was one of the two tutors to the 14th HHDL. Given that it is world known fact for the selection of HHDL’s tutors to adhere to stringent conditions and under the scrutiny of the Tibetan government, hence it is safe to say that the tutors to HHDL must be flawless in their Buddhism knowledge and practice.

    The point is, by virtue of their command of Buddhism knowledge, they cannot be propitiating to anything evil. And we have facts to show that Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche are both Dorje Shugden practitioners. To me, it is uplifting to know that the tutors to the current HHDL are Dorje Shugden practitioners. It presents the other side of the coin to what CTA and HHDL’s followers claimed. The ban imposed by the CTA in the name of HHDL since 1996 causes many sufferings to Dorje Shugden practitioners as they are not allowed to basic public services and even restaurants; some of the monks were chased out of the monastery and forced to disparage their own Guru.

    How inhume is this going to get before HHDL lifts the ban?! I pray that the ban be lifted soonest and hatred be elevated from the heart of Anti-Shugden people.

    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this informative blog post on Kyabje Ling Rinpoche.

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.

Although he only became celebrated following his death, Paul Gaugin was regarded as an influential figure to many of modernism's biggest names, including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin painted this piece during his first trip to Tahiti, where he had hoped to create "primitive" art. He then found a fondness for Tahitian women, painting many pictures of them. This particular painting, which had been on loan to the Kunstmuseum in Basel, was privately sold for a whopping $300 million in February last year.

Happy discovery of the day: Khedrup Je was vegetarian! ---- "In Khedrup Je's commentary on The Three Vows, it is said that, on the whole, only the Bodhisattvas are required to abstain from meat. Therefore, all who have taken the vow of bodhichitta, whether they be monks, nuns, or lay people, must abstain from meat. For if Bodhisattvas, who have thus become an object of praise, eat meat, a strong desire for the taste of it will grow in them. As a result, their compassion will wane. Therefore the fully ordained, the shramaneras, kings, ministers, leaders, and lay people who practice the Mahayana should refrain from eating meat." (This was found and posted by Pastor Jean Ai)

Mr. Jamyang Norbu is a powerful Tibetan writer and blogger. He is one of the few people who tell the truth about the Tibetan Leadership and what happens within the Tibetan communities. It is a fact that if you disagree with Tibetan Leadership in Dharamsala on any issue, they get you ostracized and then perhaps the crowd against you. That could be dangerous. This is not pleasant but true. Recently with the Tibetan in exiled 'election' of the new Prime Minister, they did everything they can to get rid of Lukar Jam who wants corruption to end in Tibetan leadership and unite Tibetans regardless of their spiritual orientation. Indeed a rare breed. This is a excellent article to read..Again I am not interested in politics but this shows clearly how the CTA or Tibetan leadership accepts no opposition in their secular and religious decisons right or wrong..and how my choice of spirituality has brought me problems which should not happen in a real democracy. Since it's related I post here. So by all means take a look at how unethical Tibetan Leadership is through the eyes of a well known Tibetan writer: http://www.jamyangnorbu.com/blog/2015/11/13/election-by-divine-intervention/

Before the unethical ban against the spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden, all the teachers are friendly, they are in contact and support each other. There was much harmony and everyone was focused on bringing the Buddha dharma to many. They often met up with each other, or in communication and even attended eachother's events. The harmony was palpable, beneficial and everyone was united. You an see here how Lama Zopa Rinpoche comes to one of Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche's events in Nepal. How warmly they greet eachother and there is so much spirituality radiating from this blessed picture. Now because of this unethical ban against Shugden, these lamas are not allowed to meet although they have the same root guru. Because of the unethical ban against Dorje Shugden the whole Tibetan Buddhist world is divided. Those who wish to practice Dorje Shugden are not allowed to participate or be friends with those who do not practice Dorje Shugden. What is incredible is why are Tibetan Buddhists divided by religion? Tsem Rinpoche

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
