The Pig: A Water Sign

The Pig sign is of the Water element. Generally, the Water element indicates the potential for a powerful communicator and someone who is able to skillfully manipulate people into seeing a particular point of view. Those born under the Water element are observant and very quick to take advantage of opportunities and harness resources to fulfil their aims. They are also versatile and adaptable, embodying the very nature of Water, which is fluidity.

The Metal Pig –1911, 1971, 2031

The Metal Pig is passionate and extreme in whatever he does whether in romantic relationships or at work. He tends to be very trusting and gives his all especially in relationships with others. He is very honest in expressing his feelings. However, he often tends to give others more credit than it is due, putting himself at risk of being disappointed.

The Metal Pig sociable, friendly, outspoken and industrious in his work. It is not unusual for him to do more than is required of him, willingly and happily. This Pig is very generous with his time, efforts and care of others. He has great perseverance and the endurance to see a task through to completion no matter how difficult it may be. Quitting when faced with challenges is not his style.

The Metal Pig tends to rely more on his feelings than logic; his judgment can sometimes be far from objective. Ultimately, as he is still a diplomatic Pig, he does not like confrontation and prefers to keep peace with everyone. He will always resort to conciliatory means in his dealings with others.

However, this does not mean the Metal Pig is a push over. When challenged, he can be a very forceful opponent and will fight all the way to prove a point. When provoked, he can be aggressive and fierce, without losing the objectives he has in mind.

 

Life Lessons:

The Metal Pig has to learn to be more objective in his dealings with people and try not to let his heart rule his mind. Although it is good to be trusting of others, he must learn to exercise some discretion or risk being taken advantage of and hurt.

The Water Pig – 1923, 1983

The Water Pig is a very sociable person. He loves parties, social gatherings, enjoys having a good time with people and can be quite indulgent. Like the Metal pig, he is also extremely trusting of others. He is great at influencing people to get what he wants but at the same time can be easily influenced by others as well. If he is not careful, people can easily use him or take advantage of him.

The Water element makes him extremely diplomatic and he believes strongly in showing goodwill to everyone he meets. He tends to see the good in others and refuses to believe that people have any evil intent unless proven otherwise. You would do well to have a Water Pig as a friend, who will be your most loyal and stalwart supporter.

Water Pigs are very passionate in all they do. They are also expressive and like to share their feelings – they are real good talkers! He finds it very easy to be transparent and open about himself and does not believe in having any secrets. He makes people feel very comfortable with him as he exudes an energy of openness and has no ulterior motives.

Open as he is though, the Water Pig can also tend to be very indulgent, particularly with material pleasures and will often be found at lavish dinners, drinking expensive wines and bedecked in the finest clothes. He’ll need to keep a tighter rein on his spending or the only assets he’ll have are his branded shoes!

 

Life Lessons:

The Water pig should be more careful about who he trusts and be more discerning. He should be careful to not to let others influence him in a negative way. Although being open and expressive is conducive for good relationships with others, he should be careful who he is open to and not to let others use his weaknesses against him.

.

 

The Wood Pig – 1935, 1995

The Wood Pig has a big heart. He is always seeking ways and means to help others and will never say no to a friend in need. He is accommodating to others and very sympathetic to anyone who tells him a sob story. He is particularly passionate and driven when working for others, such as in NGOs or charities.

Socially, the Wood Pig is good-natured and tends to treat everyone as his equal. He is very good at influencing and enrolling people for a certain cause but at the same time can be easily influenced by others.

Practical, down-to-earth and very hardworking, he is always on the lookout for a project to take on. He is very ambitious and concerned with personal gain and is not above manipulating others to get what he wants. However, he is so skilful at this that most people won’t even realize that they have been manipulated by him. In fact, he inspires the confidence of others with his eloquence and passionate personality and they will want to help him.

Like all Pigs, the Wood Pig also loves to entertain and is always the star in parties. He has the ability to create goodwill wherever he goes.

 

Life Lessons:

The Wood Pig should take precautions not to be influenced negatively by others. He should be honest with others in wanting to get their help instead of using manipulation as this can backfire and ruin his relationships with others if found out.

The Fire Pig – 1947, 2007

The Fire Pig is active, outgoing and extroverted. He is passionate, courageous and very emotionally intense. Extremely determined, he will not sway from what he has set his mind to do. He will see through the completion of the tasks or projects he undertakes. More often than not, the Fire Pig will rise to the top as a powerful and passionate leader, bringing success not just to himself but to everyone who has the fortune to be working under him.

He is daring, has great confidence and loves to take risks despite the consequences. He trusts his intuition and uses it to make judgments where logic seems to fail. He will venture into many unknowns and come out victorious against many odds. The Fire Pig will never be complacent, always quick to pounce on opportunities before someone else beats them to it.

The Fire Pig is also a family person and dotes on his loved ones. He is motivated by his love for his family to work hard so that he can provide for them lavishly. He is giving and generous to all, always ready to help anyone even strangers. He loves taking care of people and being with them.

However, the emotional Fire Pig has a tendency to be harsh and difficult if things don’t go his way or when he is down. He does not take disappointment and failure too well. As driven and energetic as he is when set on a mission, he can also swing to the other extreme of deep depression and frustration when things don’t go his way.

 

Life Lessons:

The Fire Pig must learn to understand that success as well as failure is part and parcel of life. He must realise that life is such that things are not always smooth and problems are inevitable. Instead of being dragged down by problems and disappointments, he should learn to look at it as life’s lessons and learn from them.

.

 

The Earth Pig – 1959, 2019

The Earth Pig is easy going and relaxed by nature. He is homely and is happiest when at home with his family. He is a great planner and never carries out a task without a plan at hand. He is organised, pragmatic and would be a better follower than a leader. Peace loving, he tries his best to maintain harmony wherever he goes. He is a thoughtful and helpful friend to all including strangers.

Earth Pigs are steadfast and have great perseverance. He is able to work under pressure and endure great stress to accomplish his tasks. He is not the type that would quit on anything half way and would make it a point to finish whatever he has started no matter what challenges he faces and what difficulties he encounters. His determination to fulfill his responsibility at all cost motivates the people around him.

He is not overly ambitious and will easily attain the security and material success he wants based on his diligence. Like all Pigs, he does have his indulgent nature and loves comfort, luxury and delicious food.

 

Life Lessons:

The Earth Pig is the most moderate of all pigs. He does not have many vices except that he can be too indulgent with himself. He will be fine as long as he takes care not to overdo it and put himself in financial or health problems.

    I am lay tibetan and I do nt know much about Dharma but my concern is this How our beloved own brothers and sisters become like this..when we were children I used to feel proud on my community so much of concern to each other, love so much and share everything.. and now everything changes we look each other suspiciously….where our harmony among ourselves were gone…. my grand father was follower of Dhomo Geshey Rinpoche from the first incarnation and he met the second incarnation also….when we were samll kids he used to tell the story to us… even my late mother also tell the story to us….and now..DS followers are being ill treated by our own society, our very own brother and sister and community…why all this and for what…..The other people are laughing on us we have become a laughing stuffs and where is our UNITY….if the things goes like this than getting our COUNTRY back is IMPOSSIBLE which we have lost…our upcoming generation will be ashamed of our deeds.. so I humbly wish only on thing..among ourselves Tibetan there should not be any differences just because of Religion..we should be more responsible for our community, country and for our coming generation..I am sorry..I have expressed my views and I do not intend to hurt anyone…I am a foolish man…thats all for today…next time ….

    对我而言,我并不会加以区分任何一位上师和他们的观点。每位上师自有一套引领弟子通往证悟之道的方法。正因如此,智者释迦牟尼佛才传授了8万4千种法门。我们不该卷入冲突之中,进而批评这位或那位上师。佛法教导我们即便是面对鬼魂、乞丐、小偷、蛇和一切有情众生都该心怀善心。

    仁波切突然对我们说 “你们在这儿坐着稍等一会儿,我去和我的朋友们谈一谈。” 说完便起身走向酒店门口望着乌云密布的天空开始喃喃自语,我们一行人你看我我看你,面面相觑,然后转身面对着远处的仁波切发愣。。。大概过了5分钟,仁波切便走回来对我们说 “行了,我刚和他们谈过,他们说没问题。我们就快可以走了。” 果真在5分钟以内,滂沱大雨就转为绵绵细雨……

    从俗世的角度而言,如果要告诉人们某位上师和某个团体对我们做了些什么不好的事……非常简单,如果你提出的控诉是确凿、让你深受困扰,那你该去寻找援助。老是讨论它,跟几个人在那说了又说,是完全无法帮到你的。有谁有兴趣听?为何要如此无法自拔?

    能从一位大师的智慧转世手中接过这样一份珍贵的礼物,确实是太令人感动的同时又深感谦卑。有人告诉我,我的前世跟赤江仁波切关系密切。赤江仁波切甚至吩咐他的弟子带我的弟子到泰国餐厅吃一顿好的,以示感激。太仁慈了,太殊胜了。

    几年前我的中医师发现我的肝部出了问题,并且建议我到西医做体检。经过检查,医生发现我有肝硬化的问题,若不医治或置之不理,此问题将成不治之症。经诊断出此问题之后,我便开始进规定好的饮食、服特定的药物。就在那期间,我的弟子们与确吉拉的助理联络上,询问助理确吉拉下一次降神为何时,目的是请示护法能为我赞助哪些法会,或是可以向谁求助、能为我做些什么。

    Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or leader should never criticize or ‘advise’ against any religious faith, path or practice. It is politically wrong not to mention it infringes on our religious freedom. If you don’t like a certain religious path, you keep it to yourself and not announce it publicly disappointing many.Un-democratic. What is important is look at the person not their skin color, race, religion or economic background. Religious apartheid must be removed even in the ‘advices’ we give others. Tsem Rinpoche
  • Pastor Adeline
    (Friday, Jan 30. 2015 12:15 AM)
    In Malaysia we are blessed with a government that allows us religious freedom and for that I am thankful. So the Dorje Shugden issue should not be brought to Malaysia and Malaysian Buddhists have the right to explore the practice of Dorje Shugden without interference from any outside governments or outside religious authorities.

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

Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too?

Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche said to me a few years back that in order to practice or teach dharma these days, it's like being a white crow among the black. That means we will stand out and look unusual. But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche

Am so fortunate to meet one of my heroes. The courages 80 year old primatologist, Jane Goodall, best known for her long-term study of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania, still travels 300 days in a year to share with the world her work with the motivation of inspiring youths and raising funds for the cause. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has blogged about her on tsemrinpoche.com entitled Something Incredible About Jane Goodall. Rinpoche admires Jane's work and prepared some gifts for her. HE gave Jane a Tara pendant, a small Tara statue (so that she can bring Tara with her all the time and be blessed), KMP's book on vegetarian recipes and The Promise, a pictorial biography of Rinpoche. May her talk create more Janes among the youths who attended her talk. DR

A true leader. Anytime is a good time for Bentong people to approach Dato' Sri Liow to request for help even when he's having a simple, very late dinner. DR
