Another factor which affects an individual’s personality is the sun sign. The sun signs are better known as the Western zodiac, and they parallel the Chinese lunar signs. Many of us know what our Western zodiac sign is, take a look below to see how they influence the sign of the Rat.

.

 

ARIES: 21 March to 19 April
Fire + Positive Water = Aries Rat

The Aries Rat is the typical conflicting East meets West animal sign. The Rat is headstrong whereas the Aries lacks perseverance – thankfully, they balance each other out! Well liked by others, the Aries Rat is always present, vivacious and stable. You are always in control of your life, however you enjoy changes and surprises. You despise repetition and routine, and would prefer to always be on the move than to be stuck behind a desk. When excited, you may have the tendency to rush into things – this is especially true in the realm of love.

.

 

TAURUS: 20 April to 20 May
Earth + Positive Water = Taurean Rat

The Taurean Rat is persuasive, practical and diversely knowledgeable. You enjoy relishing information,whether it be historical or current. You hold yourself highly, but only because you can! You are both physically-able and intellectually strong. You enjoy telling jokes at gatherings and can be a great companion due to your inexhaustible conversational topics. Able to make money easily and non-materialistic, you are less trusting of people. You will see longer-lasting relationships in your mature age. This is unless you choose to be less flirtatious growing up.

.

 

GEMINI: 21 May to 21 June
Air + Positive Water = Gemini Rat

The Gemini Rat is eloquent and enjoys a bit of banter. You harness your oratorial skills and are continuously bursting with ideas. You don’t take yourself too seriously, and don’t expect others too either. You are constantly exciting to be in company with, but your ever-changing interests will cause you to be rather unreliable, over a period of time. Your attention span is short and you will soon find yourself spread out too thinly over too many areas. Intelligence may be your strength, but also your weakness. Coupled with your ego and superficiality, you will seek different company – and not every one likes a quick-mouthed smarty-pants, do we?

.

 

CANCER: 22 June to 21 July
Water + Positive Water = Cancerian Rat

The Cancerian Rat is a realist, but lightens up their life with their love for humour. You are intuitive, secretive and may at times be rather moody. You will steer your life away from people or situations that unnecessarily inconveniences you, however you desire family closeness and will go to the ends of the earth for it. It’s not easy to gain the Cancerian Rat’s trust; you may also find it difficult to love entirely and whole-heartedly – a little cautious string will always hold you back. Most relaxed when in familiar surroundings, you need a stable home to feel complete.

.

 

LEO: 22 July to 21 August
Fire + Positive Water = Leo Rat

The Leo Rat is always out to get the best in their life. You are highly gifted, which perfectly complements your interest in everything! You are extravagant, aristocratic and very influential. You enjoy your freedom and despite your trusting nature, you will always have one fixed eye on your finances. Your overall charisma will attract those around you. Charming, you are able to deliver humour to suit your surroundings. Preferring shorter engagements in your career, you need an active personal relationship to keep your love life alive.

.

 

VIRGO: 22 August to 22 September
Earth + Positive Water = Virgo Rat

The Virgo Rat is not one that can let themselves loose and run wild. You are constantly in control over yourself, and may steer towards being a perfectionist. You explore every possible option before taking a step in any direction. It may just be a cruel coincidence that your social life will seem to be rather unstable. You are intelligent and being a hardworking individual, you will fare well in your chosen careers. Your innovativeness and business acumen will provide you with limitless capabilities. If you can only keep your sharp tongue and critical perspective in check, you will make a good and attentive partner.

.

 

LIBRA: 23 September to 22 October
Air + Positive Water = Libran Rat

Faithfulness and effortlessly successful generally sums up a Libran Rat. You are exciting, charming and interesting to be with. Bubbly as you may be, you have the tendency to lose interest fast. This spills over into your professional life, and you will constantly seek for greener pastures. On the bright side, you make for the bests purchasers as you are constantly on the look-out for the best bargains! You enjoy intimate company and are rarely seen without.

.

 

SCORPIO: 23 October to 21 November
Water + Positive Water = Scorpio Rat

The Scorpio Rat is highly intelligent and motivated. You are a go-getter and you know what you want. You are a silent and deep thinker and will not hesitate to crush your enemies if need be. Words are your strength and teamed with hard work and a scheming mind, you can bring yourself to places others didn’t think possible. You relish efficiency and effectiveness in all aspects of your life, and will easily garner support wherever you are. Scorpio Rats make good writers, and perhaps being naturally critical may fare to be a good thing.

.

 

SAGITTARIUS: 22 November to 21 December
Fire + Positive Water = Sagittarian Rat

The Sagittarian Rat exudes a light-hearted, playful and youthful charm. This Rat will be overly enthusiastic; however prone to lethargy. You are easily bored and will constantly search for change: scenery, job and/or company. You hold steady in a quagmire, but you will flare if angered. As social people, you enjoy the company of many but fear being deceived by others. This conflicts with your trusting nature.

.

 

CAPRICORN: 22 December to 20 January
Earth + Positive Water = Capricorn Rat

The Capricorn Rat is a stable and resourceful person that is also very sociable. You are known to be analytical in your thinking and may venture into careers that require research or critical thinking. Your resourcefulness may spill over into your ability to pull social strings for professional favours. You are wise and careful, less adventurous than others and prefer long-lasting relationships that require a level of faithfulness a Capricorn Rat has. Do not attempt to deceive the Capricorn Rat, their quick intelligence will catch others out.

.

 

AQUARIUS: 21 January to 19 February
Air + Positive Water = Aquarian Rat

The Aquarius Rat is a drifter and a dreamer. You value love highly, hold your friendships dear to heart, but do not favour the idea of commitment. You are expressive, and more artistic than analytic. Fairing well in careers such as journalism or public relations, you will not pursue any professional job for financial-related motives but because of the constant-changing nature of the job. You are impatient and talkative. You do not hold grudges and may at times be surprisingly extravagant.

.

 

PISCES: 20 February to 20 March
Water + Positive Water = Piscean Rat

The Pisces Rat is as unpredictable as the British weather. You are able to demonstrate your creativity easily and may fare to be good at words, however it is rare to see a Pisces Rat commit to anything or to anyone. You are less aggressive and selfish than the other Rats, but your life is so unpredictable that you might end up being an angry miser – no one knows, not even the Pisces Rat! Despite the fact that you lead a turbulent life, you always manage to get both feet back on the ground. Luck and support is on your side. A word of caution – instability in your personal life also affects your instability in relationships. Unions may be short, shorter than desired.

    When our bodies break down or become sick, we know it is teaching us that it does not belong to us truly and it will degenerate further and it is something borrowed. So while we have it, how much we take care of it, in the end it will have to be abandoned. It’s like putting all our investments into a hotel room we have to vacate soon. Why invest in a room we don’t own? With this temporary body, we should use it to have spiritual developments. The body is a method and not an end in itself. This is most important. Without those developments we are always going to be not ready for the inevitable loss of our body in the end. Tsem Rinpoche

    May Lord Manjushri bless us in all his secret, transformative, wrathful, peaceful, mystical, male and female forms to accomplish this for KFR. May KFR become a world class well known centre of learning, practice, tantra and benefit. May we never be separated from this divine Manjushri in lifetime after lifetime and be close to his bosom….

    Every morning it would be wonderful to start the day by reciting Tsongkapa’s holy and sacred Migtseyma mantra at least 21 times minimum. This will bless our day. Take refuge in Lord Tsongkapa who became fully enlightened and was predicted by Lord Buddha Shakyamuni Himself. While reciting think of how we can let go of anger and be kind to all that day. To see, hear and contemplate on Lord Tsongkapa a Tri-Cosmic Buddha earns one great waves of merit propelling the practitioner closer to their final goal of liberation. Homage to Tsongkapa whose body, speech and mind are worthy of respect and refuge. Tsem Rinpoche

    “There have been too many worthy attempts at pursuing the Dharma that have become bogged down in dogma, and so the vitality of it is lost. We can’t live life without structure. But being bound by it is also not living., nor can it truly be practice.”

    If we suspended belief and disbelief for a moment, where would we be? If there is violence here at all, it is the violence we perpetrate on ourselves, by denying ourselves the love of humanity.

    I guess my one wish now is to establish Kechara Forest Retreat to be a dharma learning centre. Where we have learned sangha who will teach philosophy, rituals, pujas, special rites to live there. I wish to produce among my friends and students dharma meditation teachers, people engaged in retreats and practice intense. I wish to have many local sangha there doing dharma work, learning and benefitting the public. I wish this place to have special emphasis on Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s texts, Vajra Yogini’s tantra, Nagarjuna’s texts, Manjushri, Tsongkapa and Dorje Shugden. To be a premiere place of learning of these subjects and practice. This is my goal. So it produces teachers and practitioners to benefit others. I wish to achieve this once phase two of the building is complete. Tsem Rinpoche

    One of the favorite places I liked to visit was Kathmandu last time. I liked the four holy Vajra Yogini temples in the vicinity. Many of these holy places are not far from Kathmandu. I’ve always had wishes to live in the mountains surrounding Kathmandu. Offering items, spiritual wares, incense, juniper, ghee and whatever is necessary is so easy to obtain. I love making butterlamp offerings daily. Everywhere you look are stupas and reminders of the enlightened mind with temples, statues and holy places. I would have loved to live in the mountains there. When I consulted with my protector via the oracle, he told me not to stay there. I guess I can see why now. But I still long for those mountains very much. Tsem Rinpoche

    When we do our sadhanas and meditations on our Yidams daily and consistently, we collect much merit to overcome life’s vicissitudes. We also sharpen our mind and keep our minds focused. It is very important to do our sadhanas to our Yidams daily without a miss. This should be our daily priority. More than anything else as this prepares for today, tomorrow and the hereafter.

    The last time I was in Kathmandu, I was very lucky as Jp arranged for me to have 100,000 butterlamps offered to Vajra Yogini. I had a rented Ladrang (house) in the hills of Kathmandu years back. We had a butterlamp house and daily we would offer 500-700 butterlamps. It took some time but we were able to finish off 100,000 butterlamps. We had arranged some Nepalese housewives to help us with the arranging of the offerings daily and they were happy to. It was too much for a few persons to do daily. In this butterlamp house we had a beautiful Vajra Yogini statue. And I loved it so much. I wish to have something like that in KFR in the future. Making light offerings to Buddhas has many benefits.

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

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

Mr Nava had a bypass operation few months ago and have been recuperating since. He was staying in his friends' house and came to seek help from our JB team. We referred his case to Pusat Jagaan Murni in Kempas for permanent stay. At least he will get to reorganise himself before making plans to work again if his health permits. Thank you very much Mr Ravi for accepting Mr Nava as one your latest residents in your esteemed shelter home. Wish you best of health Mr Nava. Justin@KSK

Hema, 36 was homeless for almost four weeks when we found her in Larkin during the distribution rounds. According to her, she was recently terminated by her employer without any reason given and became homeless subsequently. She had been relying on food from restaurants around the area with very little money left. We referred her case to Anjung Singgah JB so that she can seek temporary stay and employment as she have 6 years working experience as a security guard. Justin@KSK
