Discover how your birth date can influence your life according to Tibetan Astrology

Tibetan astrology is a blend of both Chinese and Indian astrological traditions but is uniquely Buddhist as it is based on the Kalachakra Tantra. As such there are many methods that are taught to overcome any negative influences that we may go through in daily life. These methods allow us to purify any negative astrological influences and karma, leading to a happier, smoother life as well as creating the causes for a fortunate rebirth in the future.

According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.

Karma, however, is not set in stone. We can change our circumstances through our own efforts – purification of karma and accumulation of merit. Tibetan astrology, based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future. Tibetan astrology can also predict what will happen to us in this life and our next rebirth based on the time of our birth.

Advice from Tsem Rinpoche on Birth Buddhas

  • CHENREZIG

    Chenresig The energy and properties of Arya Avalokiteshvara, Lokeshwara, Padmapani, Chenrezig and Kuan Yin are just synonyms of a very powerful universal energy called compassion. Compassion in symbolic form is this Buddha Chenrezig and in definitive meaning, it is what we need as the main nourishment to survive on this planet. show more

    For those who are born with Chenrezig as their Birth Buddha, it can be an indication that they may need to give more love to others. It may also be an indication that in their life, they might come across pockets of people and events that will create a lot of anger in themselves or in others that becomes an obstacle to their lives.

    Thus being born with Chenrezig as one’s Birth Buddha indicates the person would benefit greatly if they engaged in practices related to forgiveness, kindness, generosity and especially activities that benefit others.

    The snow mountain whiteness of this supreme Buddha represents the soothing qualities of patience, forbearance and tolerance. Chenrezig’s four arms represent compassion pervading all four cardinal directions of wherever sentient beings abide. One of Chenrezig’s four arms holds a rosary representing effort; another arm holds a lotus representing overcoming adversities and the remaining two centre hands gently clutch onto a wish-fulfilling jewel which is what we become when we embody compassion. We fulfil the wishes of others when we bring them happiness.

    Meditating, doing yogas, and reciting the sacred texts, mantras and rites associated with this supreme emanation of compassion can only soothe our minds and clear obstacles created by negative human emotions. Hence connecting with Chenrezig will quell the angry energy around us, before us, and that which has been generated in the past because without angry energy, our lives instantly become at peace regardless of our station in life.

    You do not need to be of a specific religion in order to invoke upon the energies of this much-needed Buddha especially in our troubled world of today, for his compassion comes in the form of many blessings as long as we trust in the power of compassion. Keeping images and statues or visiting sacred spaces associated with this deity will only serve to enhance our lives, remove obstacles from their roots, and propel us to higher spiritual realisations.

  • VAJRAPANI

    Vajrapani

    Fear, self-loathing, lack of confidence, insecurity, not loving oneself, hiding behind projections, and always feeling that one cannot achieve things is countered by the Birth Buddha Vajrapani.

    When we associate ourselves with rites, rituals, prayers, mantras, yogas and practices that directly connect us with Vajrapani, fearful sights, dangerous or frequent travels, distant faraway places pregnant with life-threatening circumstances and supernatural disturbances can be overcome. show more

    Last but not least, connecting with this powerful energy, like 10 million suns combined into one being, will also help us to overcome the biggest enemy and creator of fear, ignorance.

    His right arm thrust fiercely into the air, holding the symbol of liberation and power over suffering, is highlighting what this Birth Buddha can grant us if we trust in his powers. His left hand, clawed, points with a threatening mudra at the enemies within. The mudra (hand gesture) forestalls sufferings, pain and more problems created by our inner enemies, which in turn creates the enemies on the outside.

    Fangs bared, bloodshot eyes glaring, fiery moustache ablaze and violently gracing his blue-black face, even the most terrifying of inner demons and outer obstacles cannot withstand his wrath. For those born under this Birth Buddha, it is perhaps an indication that in our life, we will face many difficult or problematic situations, wrathful events and even the biggest enemy, the hating of oneself.

    No matter what faith or lack of faith we project ourselves to have, or what religion or lack of denomination we are, it makes no difference to the volcano-like energy embodied within Vajrapani. Engaging in traditional and non-traditional propitiations of Vajrapani will only assist in removing and eradicating the causes of our suffering, obstacles and especially our deep inner issues which we have sometimes hidden from ourselves.

    Those born under this Birth Buddha Vajrapani should consider themselves most fortunate because in the face of his violent yet compassionate power, our non-existent ego will only disintegrate.

  • VAJRASATTVA

    Vajrasattva For those of us who have the supremely efficient Vajrasattva as our Birth Buddha, this might indicate that in our lives we change and shift things very often and easily. We may not go all the way with certain works and endeavours, which is an attitude that may bring us a lot of difficulties. show more

    Why is this Buddha efficient? Because Vajrasattva is a specific emanation that when invoked upon, removes the root causes of our failures: impatience, projections and delusions. Our delusions, projections and impatience are constantly fuelled, without ever being exhausted, by the constant karma that we create. This is a larger source of energy and power than any fossil fuel remaining in the earth.

    While fossil fuel will run out one day, the fuel we generate to ‘power’ these three negative qualities can be washed away by Vajrasattva’s practice. On the one hand, we knowingly and unknowingly create negative karma and circumstances for ourselves and the people around us. Simultaneously, we also reinforce this situation by rejoicing in our negative actions. This is the root fuel and source for the unhappiness in our lives.

    Thus by invoking upon Vajrasattva’s energy, visiting sacred spaces associated with him, reciting mantras, or engaging in offerings, rites, rituals, practices, yogas, meditations or even having an image of him, it will help us to eradicate the root fuel that empowers the dissatisfaction we always experience and create for others through our delusions, lack of effort, giving up on things easily and our worst best friend, projections. Projections are things we believe, see or feel is so, but in actuality, what we see is actually deceptive and not real.

    So those born under the blessings of this Birth Buddha are most fortunate if they invoke upon or associate with Buddha Vajrasattva because once they cut the fuel, the engine of suffering stops.

  • SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA

    Buddha Shakyamuni

    The moment Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later known as Buddha Shakyamuni, issued forth from his sacred mother, tremors heralding the birth of an extraordinary being were felt and heard throughout the earth.

    For nine months, Queen Maya Devi dreamt of an elephant descending from the highest Tushita heavens and entering her womb, foretelling of a single mind that would manifest to change the destiny of all of samsara. show more

    This being who is perfect, with the 60 qualities of speech and 112 immutable physical marks of a superhuman, appeared golden, bright and smiling. He was the answer to every single plague within our existence that has ever been created.

    The moment Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later known as Buddha Shakyamuni, issued forth from his sacred mother, tremors heralding the birth of an extraordinary being were felt and heard throughout the earth. For nine months, Queen Maya Devi dreamt of an elephant descending from the highest Tushita heavens and entering her womb, foretelling of a single mind that would manifest to change the destiny of all of samsara. This being who is perfect, with the 60 qualities of speech and 112 immutable physical marks of a superhuman, appeared golden, bright and smiling. He was the answer to every single plague within our existence that has ever been created.

    Homage to the King of Sages, the antidote to samsara and to the most benevolent and powerful Buddha Shakyamuni.

    If Shakyamuni happens to be your Birth Buddha, you can consider yourself to be the most fortunate to be protected by the fourth universal monarch to appear in this fortunate aeon. All maladies, internal and external, and all sufferings and all manifestations of our inner turmoil can be quelled if we associate ourselves with, pray to, take refuge in and make offerings to this supreme being labelled Shakyamuni. By visiting the four holy places of his birth, his enlightenment, his turning of the Wheel of Dharma and his parinirvana, one will quicken one’s path to the state he has shown us, which is possible. By focusing our minds and physically visiting sacred spaces associated with this most supreme protector of all sentient beings, Shakyamuni Buddha, only good can arise.

    Those of us who are born with Shakyamuni as our Birth Buddha should be inspired to realise he has shown us what we can achieve and we should never belittle ourselves to think it is not possible. Those born under the blessings of this Birth Buddha should never be discouraged and feel that they cannot achieve what they wish to achieve in their lives; they should feel empowered to go all the way.

    Those associated with this supreme Buddha Shakyamuni should offer things pleasing to the five senses such as flowers, incense and water, and especially their efforts and cultivation of themselves as the best person that they can be. Any mantras, rites and rituals done according to tradition or created from one’s personal inspiration, will be more than enough to invoke the blessings of this supreme being.

    Since Shakyamuni has shown all beings within existence the possibility of freedom, when we are associated with him as our Birth Buddha, we should realise we can achieve anything and everything. Always invoke upon the energies of your special Birth Buddha, the Great Sage and universal monarch Shakyamuni Buddha.

  • NAMGYALMA

    Namgyalma

    Those born with this incredible, forceful female energy as their Birth Buddha are blessed to be protected from the six realms of samsara and the three dimensional existences which are represented by her nine eyes.

    Her eight arms hold symbols of the complete end of suffering, removal of obstacles, swiftness in achievements, prolonging of life, achievement of the highest qualities and at the same time, improvement and assistance in our spiritual meditative paths. The practitioner will receive the benefits of what she manifests and what she represents. show more

    Being born under this Birth Buddha may, for some people, represent that at times they may have a very tumultuous life. The incredible energy of this supreme lady Namgyalma can quell such adversities if we place our trust in her.

    To invoke upon her energies by either traditional or non-traditional methods, you do not need to be Buddhist or even anything remotely related. Reciting her sacred words of power (mantra) or relying on one’s personal meditation methods according to one’s own knowledge to propitiate the Buddha Namgyalma will definitely invoke the energy of your Birth Buddha.

    If you are lucky enough to have Namgyalma as your Birth Buddha, keep an image or sacred statue of this effulgent deity and make an effort to be closer to her.

  • TARA

    Tara The person born under the timing ‘ruled’ by the energy of Tara will experience improvements in their endeavours if they form a stronger affinity with Tara. This connection with Tara will help them achieve their goals, lessen obstructions and lead to the overall improvement of their path in life. show more

    It would be especially beneficial for this person to visit temples and places that honour Tara, or are associated with her. Keeping a painting, print or statue of Tara in the place they inhabit the most will constantly energise the environment with her blessings. Any pujas, rituals, meditations, yogas and propitiations to Tara will be especially powerful towards achieving our positive wishes.

    Tara can be relied upon as our main practice or as a subsidiary practice, if combined with other practices. We can invoke upon Tara regardless of whatever spiritual path we are on now. We do not need to be Buddhist to tap into Tara’s blessings, as her blessings override any human projections.

    Tara is associated with the removal of obstacles, 21 potent methods for improving our lives, as well as mental prowess and extraordinary abilities such as clairvoyance, foretelling of the future and safety in travel. She is also swift in the removal of obstacles for business, and excellent for women’s issues and family disharmony. Overall, when we connect with Tara as our Birth Buddha, we are making connections with a powerful ally who will stay close to us until our own Enlightenment.

    Those born under the Birth Buddha of Tara may engage in traditional Tibetan methods, or their own spiritual methods, to invoke upon her multi-faceted blessings daily.

  • MANJUSHRI

    Manjushri

    The person born under the timing ‘ruled’ by the energy of Manjushri will do especially well to make a stronger connection to Manjushri to fulfil life goals, remove obstacles and generally improve one’s well-being.

    It is good for this person to visit chapels or holy sites associated with Manjushri, or to keep an image or statue of Manjushri in the environment they inhabit the most. show more

    Any rites, mantras, yogas and meditations associated with Manjushri will be especially effective for them. Manjushri can be our main practice, or an additional practice if we have a separate, pre-existing main practice already. Our religious orientation, even if we are not Buddhist, will not interfere with Manjushri’s bountiful blessings when we invoke him.

    Manjushri is associated with learning, self-improvement, logic, wisdom, the arts, science, music, contemplation, realisation and penetrative insight. He is thus associated with improving all facets of intelligence, learning and inner growth.

    People associated with this Birth Buddha generally enjoy learning while those who face difficulties in learning, whether academically or life lessons, are encouraged to invoke upon Manjushri’s energies to see things improve for themselves.

  1. Stella Cheang on Feb 10, 2017 at 2:10 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the team for sharing here Tibetan Astrology and the calculator for us to check our Mewa and the accompanying “fortune.” As Buddhist, we are taught that karma or the law of cause and effect governs us, hence discouraging superstitious notions. The beauty of Tibetan Astrology is that Buddhism is deeply ingrained, hence, it serves as a unique solution provider to many who might be at a lost when it comes to applying Buddha Dharma to real life.

  2. wan wai meng on Jan 25, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Very nice tool, to have a glimpse of our hidden character and personality.

    Good or bad year we all should keep the dharma in our minds, and strive to practice in all situations and at all times.

  3. Edward Lee on Jan 14, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you very HHTRinpoche.My wife & I are very happy to receive our Horoscrops & Advices for us to follow & pray..Thank you..

  4. Carmen Koo on Jan 6, 2017 at 1:37 pm

    Thank you for yet another interesting feature on the blog that helps us get to know more about ourselves, and find the ways to end our own sufferings through recognising our own weaknesses.

    Astrology, Horoscopes, Zodiac Signs etc, are good tools and guidelines to have to help us identify ourselves better, how to recognise the root of our sufferings because of certain characteristics that may be influenced by various circumstances, and how to fix it to alleviate our own sufferings. Also, how to better work with others by understanding others wholly. Of course, the best is having our guru , who are with us, spends hundreds and thousands of hours to advice, pray, bless, teach, joke, share with us, to change our views and minds, so that we can identify our own attachments and weaknesses and work on ‘fixing’ it, while reecognising how astrology etc contributes in tandem to who and what we are. Of course, nothing is permanent, and we can always change, which is the best thing we can do.

  5. Sock Wan on Jan 4, 2017 at 7:34 pm

    It is very interesting to know the characteristic of the numbers or animals or Buddha we are related to. The descriptions are pretty close to our character. Knowing our ‘fortune’ or personality let us know what kind of precaution we have to take, what are our strength that we can further develop and what are the weakness we have to be aware. If we know the characteristic of the people we are dealing with, we will be able to use the right method to help them. Astrology can be a guide but we are still the master of our life, we have to take control and take charge of it.

  6. TekLee on Dec 28, 2016 at 1:38 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Tibetan Astrology. It is interesting to know what is my birth Mewa and who is my birth Buddha. Through the astrology, we can know when is our good year and bad year. During our bad year, we should do more purification. And of course, in the good year, never forget about Dharma also. In fact, should engage more in Dharma. I will start looking into and study more about Vajrapani from now onwards. Thank you Rinpoche’s advice on my birth Buddha, I will listen to Rinpoche’s advice. _/\_

  7. JP on Dec 26, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    This is really a lot of fun! I’m always curious how accurate various astrologies are. This is the first time I’ve heard of Tibetan astrology. What’s different from other astrologies is that it shows the Buddha we have affinity with. If we engage in the prescribed Buddha’s practice, we can overcome our flaws and change our karma. This is the good news. WE have a choice and the choice is in our hands.

    感恩仁波切分享这篇有趣和众多人喜爱的西藏星占术与米瓦(Mewa)。

    这是一个非常有趣, 准确又简易的方法让我们自己可以很容易的就可以算出自己的出生佛(birth buddha)与米瓦。之前我对金刚萨陀菩萨的心咒~金刚萨陀百字明咒特别容易唱诵和念颂, 而且我的前行也是首选金刚萨陀闭关, 现在经过这西藏星占术计算,我的出生佛是金刚萨陀菩萨, 现在才明白, 原来如此 !

    文章里的米瓦计算也可以让我们看到前世与来世的投生, 但最重要的是里面有教导我们念诵哪心咒可以有效的帮助我们脱离下三道,以及心咒强大的威力。

    希望这文章可以帮助到更多的人 !

    I thank Rinpoche and the team for the effort in putting this article out. It is so useful and interesting, definitely an eye-opener. It is good to know, but perhaps we should not let it rule our thoughts and actions too much, especially when we’re supposed to be having a “very bad day” or “very difficult year”, of which I have plenty! Especially in Chinese culture, when a bad year is foretold, maybe a clash of something, then there will be a lot of “pantang” or taboo/restrictions to avoid aggravating the already bad situation. Then we are advised to “lay low”, lol.

    As we learn in Buddhism, karma is changeable and not fixed. Instead of fearing an impending bad year, we understand that the bad year is in itself a purification, and we should engage in further purification practices and collection of merit to avert and maybe lessen the negative impact.

    Whatever the quiz result, I envision that in all cases, we would be advised to do more purification practices, dharma protector practices and we certainly need a lot of that.

  10. Vivian Ong on Dec 24, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on Tibetan Astrology. Thank you Rinpoche for giving the advice on my birth Buddha Vajrasattva. I guess I really need to recite more Vajrasattva mantras as I know that I am impatient at times 😀

    With folded palms,

    Wonderful indeed now we could check out what is rise ahead of us through the Tibetan astrology .Its is a blend of both Chinese and Indian astrological traditions.. based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future.Its so clearly explain and informative.Its so accurate for me.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Niral and team making it possible for us.

  12. Fong on Dec 23, 2016 at 3:41 pm

    This is a very very interesting article. I used to think articles like this were just for entertainment.

    The good are to encourage to continue our virtues acts and the negatives are to help us be more firm and focused to do more virtuous acts so we can avoid those pitfalls.

    It also helps to explain why we keep coming across certain deities and why we like them without knowing why.

    Great read and a better daily horoscope than most.

  13. Alice Tay on Dec 22, 2016 at 9:57 pm

    This is the first time I hear about Tibetan Astrology. It is really interesting especially we can know something different from other astrology i.e. about our past lives, next life and method of purification. With the method of purification, we still can change our circumstances through our own efforts.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team who made this Tibetan Astrology which is benefiting many others.

  14. Marek on Dec 22, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    Many Thanks – would it be possible in future perhaps for you to be able to provide more in depth star charts/horoscopes? Such as knowing what the indications are for the position of the planets at the time of one’s birth and how that may influence us according to Tibetan Astrology – could be beneficial to all.

  15. Cynthia Lee on Dec 22, 2016 at 6:19 am

    In general, I see astrology to be an indication of what our lives are to be since birth, determined by our previous karmas. The roads in our lives and where it leads are mapped out … it’s still within our control which road to take.

    If we do nothing about it, we are bound by its “predictions”.

    This is why I love this Tibetan Astrology. The very fact it acknowledges that our future can be changed with its given remedies. The remedies are something that works. It’s not like those feng shui remedies which advises us to strategically place a golden tortoise on the table of that sort to improve luck for example.

    Performing different virtuous actions which correspond to our birth Buddha makes plenty sense than placing an object on our office table!

  16. Bradley Kassian on Dec 21, 2016 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Team for putting this together. I had no idea my birth Buddha would be the female Buddha Namgyalma, also known as ‘Ushnisha Vijaya‘ in Sanskrit, is one of the three Long Life deities. It seems very fitting, as I have a great attraction towards the female Buddhas. I will have to set up a small alter for her. I don’t place much faith in astrology as I believe more in Interdependence and karma but it’s nice to see a connection to a particular Buddha. Thank you Rinpoche.

  17. Danny on Dec 21, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    No wonder i like to see buddha shakyamuni form, be it tibetan, indian or chinese so much. My birth buddha is shakyamuni buddha.

  18. Sharon Ong on Dec 20, 2016 at 11:57 pm

    This is pretty spot on and I can see myself going back daily to find out what my day will be like.

    Cool stuff! Thank you to the team who made this possible. Love this!

  19. HelenaC on Dec 20, 2016 at 10:40 pm

    This is really fun and blessed. My birth Buddha is Vajrapani and my Mewa is The Mirror of Ocean Medicine.
    its blessed to know my birth Buddha, the infinity between Vajrapani and me. After knowing my Mewa, I would wanna transform to be a better me. Very good guide. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. This is very cool hehe…

  20. Yee Mun (KISG) on Dec 20, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us on Tibetan Astrology.

    This is my first time heard of Tibetan Astrology. Astrology is something really interesting. Many people would like to use astrology to find out more about themself and also to predict the futures.

    Tibetan Astrology is special cos it is based on Buddhism. We can find out about our past life and who we will be in the futures. But if we would like to change our futures, the Tibetan Astrology also share with us the methods to do so.

    Common for all astrology that they will have yearly and daily predictions.

    Astrology is just a guide for us. Whether we are encountering a good year good day or bad year bad day, we still need to do our practice, engage in virtuous activities to benefit others and to alleviate obstacles. We need lots of merit for us to continue with our spiritual path till we achieve enlightenment.

  21. Lum Kok Luen on Dec 20, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    Very unique and cool advise.
    I think the key points are purification of our negative karma always and be very mindful with our body, speech and mind.
    Do good always and have strong Guru devotion.
    Generate as much merits as possible to be able to reborn as human and continue Dharma practice in future life.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche.

    This Tibetan astrology is really cool and interesting! I really love to check out what’s in store about my future,luck,health,karma,relationship and so on. My Mewa is 3. Birth Buddha is Vajrasattva. Thank you rinpoche and blog team for creating this very interesting Tibetan astrology calculator.

  23. shane Jayasuriya on Dec 20, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    I believe that we born according to our karma and can know and see from our present life what we have done in past lives…Good or bad… But nothing is permanent.. present thoughts and actions can change karma bring to us.. its nice to check our birth chart.. if its say something to good to us we feel happy .. if its show this year or this day is very bad that make us unhappy and scared.. it will stay in our mind whole that year as very bad year for us.. that thought in our mind will attract all negative things to us..mind will try to find that year, as bad year in every situation .. i think its nature of our mind.. For me there is no bad day or bad year when I am with Dorje Shugden and pray to Dorje Shugden.. what ever i read what ever see in horoscope not effect my mind when i know Dorje shugden will always take care me.. Power of the Dorje shugden practice and blessing is so powerfu and can feel it._/\_ _/\_ _/\_

    Everything we offer to Buddha is a form of mind transformation and practise our mind to be focus even when doing water offering. When pouring the water into the bowl we have to recite Om Ah Hum (3 times), think positively and pouring it slowly so it does not spill and leaving the space of a grain of rice before reaching the top. After offering we also have to clean the bowls properly without leaving stain. All this is to train our mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the many benefits and water offering in a simple to understand article.

    Trolls are assiociates as beings of Scandinavian folklore.A large number of different mythological creatures continue to live on in Scandinavian folklore.They have different shapes,habitat and filthy features . There are also numerous tales of trolls told and retold.Trolls are also believed to have the magigal powers, which were folktales ,posses capabilities that are beyond human .What ever it was a remnant of a long-lost reality for sure. I do believe that there’s a very high chance trolls had existed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i do enjoyed all the stories in these article even though it just folk tales.

    People always expect return on some contribution being done especially in charity events. When the return was under their expectations then they will feel sad or unhappy.
    As Rinpoche said, Dharma is a teachings to transform our mind to become bodicitta or selfless to benefit others without condition. Once we practiced selfless mind, our mind will not be affected by others people reaction.
    What will be my legacy? I think this is not really important to me anymore once I know Dharma teachings from Rinpoche.
    Thanks Datuk May for sharing to benefit more people.

    We are no strangers to the creatures called Werewolves. They are often depicted as the Jekyll-and-Hyde-like monsters in movies who are unable to control their animal instincts when they shift from human form to a wolf-like creature, usually during the full moon. Together with the Vampires who can transform into bats, are my childhood imagery villains, who triggered my curiosity on mythical creatures during younger days. They still do, lol.

    It is gruesome to learn that real life werewolves are actually brutal even when they are in human forms. It is a far depict from the movies and fictions, where they are civil and level headed when in human form. I hope one day science or technology can provide more proves the existence of werewolves, and debunk the reason of this mystical shapeshifter.

    The miraculous power of Protectors’ practice can heal and shield us from negative karma from ripening. Through the blessings of our Guru, coupled with strong faith and trust, the practices will take effect swiftly and effectively. Rejoice to Steven Lee. May he be guided by the Three Jewels always.

    This is a very touching article. I totally agree that dog is a man’s best friend. They are always so loyal to the owner. However it is sad that not all pet owners are such. Some will only treat them literally as an animal and therefore do not take good care of them. Dogs or any other animals are beings that have feeling. There should not be neglected and be abused by us. This article reminds us to always care for all beings and respect them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

    Its a heartfelt touching article of this faithful dog.Cannot imagine this ,such a wonderful relationship between that dog and the deceased owner.The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that we will not come back for them That i noticed from observing from my pet poodle.In this case this faithful dog knew his owner won’t be back.
    Dogs are loyal, patient, fearless, forgiving, capable of pure love and have feelings too.He must have missed the owner badly that he wanted to accompany the owner all the way to the resting place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. May that faithful dog ,continue to serve and well taken, love by the other family members.

    Werewolves are known to be mythical creatures found in fiction instead of lurking in the dark woods,In various parts of the world there were few cases who have gone down in history as real life werewolves Interesting to read it from these post..How far it was true or just legends.,no one really know . Many myths and legends surrounding werewolves .To become a werewolf, it is necessary to be bitten by a werewolf in their form at the time of the full moon. Thats what all of us knew from the movies and from fiction told. Reports of werewolf sightings continued even till this century but mostly in between 1428 and 1447 .The most recent sighting of werewolf sightings in 1972. was in Ohio .but eventually subsided .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading it,

    Join our blog chat session this Saturday 11AM – 12PM (GMT +8) on the topic of:

    Twenty-Four Holy Places & Eight Great Charnel Grounds part 2 – (focus topic: Eight Great Charnel Grounds)

    At one time there was a god by the name of Rudra who was originally part of Mahadeva’s retinue. He was a very fierce being who also had many of his own consorts. Together with his consorts he began to oppress sentient beings, and promoted violence and unethical behaviour. At that time, Heruka once again arose, and in a dance of great compassionate wrath, liberated Rudra and his consorts from their physical bodies, sending their minds to pure lands. The places where Rudra’s body parts fell became charnel grounds. …read more by clicking the following link:

    This year Wesak Day fall on 10 of May. This day is very special and meaningful to me because I will visit Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) to join some meritorious event there.
    For me, Wesak is a day to commemorate Buddha Sakyamuni in three aspect( Birth , Enlightened, Nirwana).
    While we celebrate Wesak, we must remind ourselves to learn from Buddha teachings and practice it in order to gain attainment.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing in order to create more understanding on Wesak Day.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
