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.

    In order to observe the movement of our own mind and heart, of our whole being, we must have a free mind. Not a mind that agrees, taking sides, disputing and disagrees in an argument over mere words, but rather, following with an intention to understand – a very difficult thing to do because most of us don’t know how to look at or listen to our own being anymore than we know how to look at the beauty of a river or listen to the breeze among the trees.

    The religious urge springs from man’s attempts to rationalize his inability to control his own destiny and his apparent subjection to the wayward fancies of an unseen power. Thus to ascribe the events and circumstances of life to an outside agency not only relieves him of much of his responsibility for his actions but explain away some of his baffling limitations. Most important still, it provides him with a conceptual focus around which his rationalizing and speculations may be centred and to which all the phenomena of the universe may more or less satisfactorily related in an attempt to see himself as part of an ordered scheme of things. Because of this overmastering tendency in man gods have been created in accordance with all the different paths of evolution followed by countless races and nations of the world. Ideas of deity cannot but arise out of the circumstances by which mankind is surrounded, for the idea of a thing must always precede the conviction of its existence, and such an idea or concept can only be built up of the assimilated impressions and experiences stored in the mental reservoir. As many conceptions as there are, so many gods and goddesses are there.

    To the average mind the word “religion” connotes the idea of pietistic practices which, in order to be of benefit, should be attended by a certain amount of personal inconvenience and occasional moral discomfiture. To some others religion appears as a spare-time occupation favoured by old ladies and all those who, for a variety of reasons, have fallen back in the scramble to keep abreast of worldly affairs. Comparatively few seem to regard religion as a matter of paramount importance which should take first place in the affairs of man, for it is a way of life; it is more – it is life itself and must not be confused with a mere habit of ceremonial observance which may be taken up or laid aside in subjection to a programme of social engagements.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) is inspired by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, the Spiritual Guide of the Kechara organisation. As a young child, Tsem Rinpoche was often hungry and after years of physical and emotional abuse, he ran away from home when he was 15 years old. Since this experience, Rinpoche has always donated food to the poor and encouraged others to do the same. In 2006, a group of Rinpoche’s students began to distribute food in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. Being mindful and respectful of others’ beliefs, KSK is strictly non-religious and does not discriminate in terms of race or culture. For this reason, our food is always vegetarian. By volunteering your time or sponsoring our activities, you are helping us to bring hope and comfort to countless people. Your compassion and generosity means that one more person will go to bed tonight with a full stomach and a mind that is at peace.

    All animals avoid pain and gravitates toward comfort, which is a clear indication that they have the inherent ability to distinguish between happiness and suffering. Even if we do not believe in the laws of karma, no being deserves to be tortured or to suffer in any way. 【Kid Finds Chicken Organ in KFC Meal】

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

If there is a blind man walking towards a well and he can fall in, whose fault is it if he falls in? This can be related back to those in dharma should act to guide others by example otherwise you let everyone fall into the well. If they do fall in samsara's well, whose fault is it? Have the courage, integrity and fortitude to practice dharma and bring dharma to others to help them.~ Tsem Rinpoche

Many times we hear great Vajra Yogini practitioners when cremated, their fire pyres appear in the form of Vajra Yogini. We hear this many times as a sign they went to Kechara Paradise, gained high realizations or enlightened by Vajra Yogini's path. Although this picture does not depict a funeral pyre of a great practitioner, but the fire looks curiously like Vajra Yogini. Enjoy and may all be blessed by Vajra Yogini. Tsem Rinpoche

When you work hard and produce results, everyone is silenced and those who make noise is just noise and society allows you some freedoms. You have to have the integrity to finish what you started and what you promised. Do it for others, those concerned and for yourself.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can work with me and we finish the dreams. You can leave citing any reasons you may have. You may join back again with me and my arms are open to you. Or you may go away as an enemy or remain friends. However you do I will accept. I dream big and work hard and sometimes it's hard for you, others and me, but if we finish, there is great satisfaction. Satisfaction doesn't come free. But one thing for sure, I will finish what I have started with or without you. Too many depend on it and many have hopes in it. We need to remember our words, our promises and our hopes we gave others and not shatter it. Sometimes we need to put our personal feelings aside and just get it done with a bang and be happy about it because in the end letting others down is not a way of life. Be kind, have integrity, don't make excuses, don't justify but just complete the works that make the dreams materialize and in the process you fulfill the dreams of many others. Others is always the key. Others and oneself are intertwined. Life is then fulfilled. That is life. Life is like that.~Tsem Rinpoche

Some people just work quietly in the background and do their best in their own way to benefit others. They don't say much but work super hard. I must say Pastor Dr. Lanse is one of them. She does not need attention, she does not complain and she does not ever create problems. She is independent and yet kind. She is our wonderful translator who works very hard to get translations of many dharma teachings into Chinese. This is just something short and sweet to let everyone know how much I appreciate Pastor Lanse and enjoy being with her work and her. Because of her and several other vital and lovely people, much practical dharma is in the Chinese speaking world. I thank Pastor Dr. Lanse from my heart. Tsem Rinpoche

Materialism is prevalent because the societal norms teaches people to be consumers at a young age. Buying things we don't need all to feed the ego. You can drive an expensive vehicle, but at the end of the day its still just a car. You can buy a flashy watch, but in reality all it does is tell time. People are more concerned with image and feeding their egos than being a beneficial person to society. Investing money on the outside to appear a certain way to others, yet forgetting to invest in yourself to becoming a better person. People spend their whole lives working to attain materialistic things using their accumulation of materialism to validate their existence, but when you die you can't take any of it with you. Don't let this system turn you into a vanity slave, realize you're worth much more than that. Feed your soul not your ego.-from Dr Asky (Powerful words of wisdom even from the secular point of view)
