The Rabbit and the Five Elements

The Rabbit: A Wood Sign

The Rabbit sign is of the Wood element. Generally, Wood bestows an expansive, open characteristic to people born with this element. They find it easy to get along well with others, especially in a group context and bring good, energising vibes to any situation. They are compassionate people, who look for ways to help others and bring justice.

.

 

The Metal Rabbit – 1951, 2011

One of the strongest and most discerning of the Rabbits, the Metal Rabbit has very strong convictions in life, most of which are made by his own sharp analysis and intelligence. However, the Metal element can also tend to make him unbending and stubborn about these views! This Rabbit – more so than the others – has exceptional taste. He would be most acutely affected and influenced by the arts, music and the finer things in life. The downside to this is that he can become easily restless and bored should there not be sufficient mental stimulus around him.

The Metal Rabbit has very strong goals in his life. Coupled with a creative streak, his strong ambition and responsible outlook on life will help him achieve quite a lot without him even needing to exert much force. The Rabbit is naturally endearing and has a strong skill for maintaining a good, solid reputation– the Metal Rabbit uses this to his advantage and always manages to accomplish what he wants without offending anyone. They are quiet planners and executors; while they themselves may not look for limelight and praise, they make excellent unsung heroes who are the real force behind celebrities.

Quiet as he is though, this could also mean that the Metal Rabbit does not find it easy to let people into his world. He’s also unlikely to share what’s really going on with him under the external façade – he may also have his evasive moods and you wouldn’t be able to figure out what’s going under his cool façade or how to best connect with him.

 

Life Lessons:

The Metal Rabbit should learn to be a bit more open. While a sly cunning does work sometimes, it can also alienate people, especially those close to him – he could benefit from being more expressive and sharing.

.

 

The Water Rabbit – 1903, 1963, 2023

A sensitive and emotional soul, the Water Rabbit will often be led by his heart rather than his head. This is the most peace-loving of all the Rabbits who cannot bear disharmony and is also likely to be a loner, preferring solitude to large social gatherings (although he is able to handle people well). For all his silent ways though, this Rabbit is strongest when he has the peace of being alone – in his quiet place, he develops strength, plans his strategies and makes plans to execute them.

He is highly alert to the moods of others and the sensitive side of him will make him either highly suspicious of others’ motives or very inspiring and driven to action. However, this sensitivity will mean it will be quite difficult for this Rabbit to make firm decisions, since he is so susceptible to the changes and people around him. It would be good if this Rabbit can establish firm friendships and support around him that would better bolster his moods and the changeable environments around him.

This Rabbit however has great mental capabilities and is very sharp. He is innovative, has good ideas and by his naturally friendly, gentle disposition will find it easy to get support for his ideas and goals.

 

Life Lessons:

It would be good for the Water Rabbit to harness his sensitivity for more positive ends, and not be ruled by his emotions as this makes it difficult for him to stay firm on his decisions. He must also learn to let things go more easily and not allow his emotions or disappointments to bring him down or distract him from his goals.

.

 

The Wood Rabbit – 1915, 1975

Always one to maintain the peace, the Wood Rabbit could be too gentle and generous for his own good, being more likely to back down in the face of a challenge than to risk upsetting anyone. Being as generous as they are, Wood Rabbits are also likely to spend money excessively, albeit for the benefit of others – they’ll have to be more wary of their expenditure and keep a more disciplined hold on their finances.

The Wood Rabbit is quite intuitive and able to adapt easily to different situations. The Wood element in him makes him both stable and dependable, while open and empathetic. He works especially well in a group situation – the sense of teamwork appeals to him while the root sign of the Rabbit in him will ensure he brings harmony to others.  His openness however can also translate to fickleness – his generous nature could mean he gives in to everyone’s opinion to a point that no single point can be decided upon.

This Rabbit is also a great collector of knowledge who thrives on learning new things. This also makes it possible for the Wood Rabbit to take on different interests and tasks and manage them well. Now, they could learn to make the most of every endeavor by being firmer in their decisions and not letting others influence or take them away from themselves.

 

Life Lessons:

The Wood Rabbit could do with being a lot firmer in his decisions – he must learn to bring out the best of the Rabbit’s diplomatic nature by standing his ground and leading the way forward strongly yet kindly. He should also be more discerning, to protect himself and his kind, generous nature from being taken advantage of.

.

 

The Fire Rabbit – 1927, 1987

This is the loudest and most outspoken of the usually tame and courteous Rabbit. Still, he hasn’t lost sight of the Rabbit’s diplomacy and while he is likely to have the temperamental outburst, he is usually easy-going and inoffensive, no matter how passionate he may be.

He is also a very fun character, likely to be at the forefront more than other quieter Rabbits. People like him and find it easy to follow him as a leader because of his natural wit and ability to speak engagingly, emotionally and creatively. Fire Rabbits would make very good leaders not just for their generous hearts and skill for spotting (and harnessing) others’ strengths, but also for the excellent way in which they handle conflict. The Fire Rabbit hardly ever has enemies and even if he did, you’d never know – he’ll resolve it without you even realising there was a problem in the first place.

The intensity of the Fire element also makes this Rabbit quite a perfectionist with high standards and ideals – in wanting the best for his colleagues and loved ones, he may be too exacting of them. The sensitivity of the Fire Rabbit can also mean he is particularly susceptible to mood swings, reacting negatively and rashly to changing environments around him.

 

Life Lessons:

The Fire Rabbit needs a splash of cold water every now and then! He needs to not let his emotions get the better of him and to exert more control in how he expresses himself. He is already so charming and likeable – why spoil it with impulsive outbursts?

.

 

The Earth Rabbit – 1939, 1999

The Earth Rabbit makes sound and solid decisions, acting with care and logic. Making the most of the intrinsic diplomatic nature of the Rabbit, he is sure to think out every move before he acts and is not one to react simply out of an emotional impulse. It would be a true asset to have an Earth Rabbit on your team or family, to be able to make decisions that you know you can rely on.

This is a much quieter Rabbit, one who is more likely to rely on himself, alone, than seek the advice of others when trying to solve a problem. In spite of his introverted nature however, the Earth Rabbit also likes adventure and isn’t afraid to venture into new grounds. He makes a good pioneer, with good ideas that are both sound and effective.

Always one for good living and fine things, as all Rabbits are, the Earth Rabbit can tend towards being quite materialistic and does not have good control over his finances. His inward-thinking nature can also make him quite indulgent and selfish, looking after only his own needs and desires without acknowledging the needs of others.

 

Life Lessons:

The Earth Rabbit needs to be more alert to the needs of others and less inward-thinking. As he already has the good people skills of a Rabbit and a stable way of dealing with situations, he should capitalise on these talents by utilising them fully for the benefit of himself and many others.

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

Having a healthy strong body is important so we can take care of the people and animals around us, to do our dharma practice and to be able to contribute to society.

Mr. Lai, the proud dad of Pastor David Lai. Mr. Lai has expressed how proud he is of his son and what he is doing for others. Mr. Lai is very happy his son David is a Pastor of Kechara and rejoices in the Dharma shared with others. Mr. Lai himself is a very kind and steady person and an important member of Kechara also who always keeps his promises. Many in Kechara respect and love Mr. Lai. Like father like son. Kind people.

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

I totally agree with this. Some vent out their anger, get attention or want to send messages to people and justify by saying it's their space their posting on and they can post what they want. Be it so, your space is seen my hundreds and it's public domain and you know that. So if others post otherwise to your views, why get upset? You invited it. Maybe that is what you wanted? Attention?

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Aki is the old African Grey that was abandoned by his owner. Because he is old, no one wanted him. Well we wanted him and we took him and in and love him. He is in a big aviary and he likes his cage. We leave his cage open at all times so he can go in and out as he likes. His cage is his security blanket. Cute.

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche

~Response by tsemtulku~ I am not sure about your questions.But… 1. Karma definitely exists. Since karma exists, the accummulation of karma exists as well as the elimination. If you do not wish to experience the negative results of karma, you must eliminate them. To eliminate them, there are powerful methods. 2. Studying the dharma helps you to know what you are going to experience and how to recognize what you might experience. There are non-scholars that experience directly as well as scholars who remain dry their whole lives just intellectualizing and speaking of what they don’t practice. There are non-scholars who delude themselves into thinking they are experiencing and scholars who learn, contemplate then put into practice and hence experience. Cannot generalize. 3.You do not need the pantheon of deities. Each deity is a representative of all enlightened beings. Take one, practice it well and go all the way.Good luck. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/26 From: June Tang

~Question asked by irene~ dear rinpoche how do prayers remove obstacles and the ripening effects of negative karma or create merits and the cause for ripening of positive karma ? how does one bridge the rigorous intellectual discipline of studying understanding or directly experiencing the teachings of the buddha and the practice of devotions to a pantheon of deities ?
