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._/\_ _/\_ _/\_

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

    This is such great news! Congratulation to Ram on the safe arrival of his newborn baby as well as his wife being saved and survived. It’s great to see them live happily now.
    This proved to us that no matter our race, gender, age and etc, Dorje Shugden will help us if we are sincere and have faith with guru and Dorje Shugden. The instructions from guru included do the pujas, candles light offering and recite Dorje Shugden mantra were important to follow in order to help his wife and baby to collect merits and clear obstacles.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Ram and his family continue to be blessed by Dorje Shugden and have the opportunity to learn and practice dharma.

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

    Amazing with Rinpoche ‘s blessing and compassion Ram’s wife and baby was well and healthy. Ram’s wife was operated and her baby was born premature at 7 months. Ram did what was instructed by Rinpoche to do pujas and candles offering for both wife and baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s powerful mantra to pray for protection for them. Both of them are one of those many people that Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden have saved over the years.
    Have trust and faith in our precious Guru and Dorje Shugden we will be protected.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharng

    Appreciate Robert for his generousity and kindness in giving the USD 5K to Rinpoche so he can settled all his loan and buy ticket to India to pursue his promise to be a monk. And he gave Rinpoche money without any condition but with sincere hope that Rinpoche can achieve his promise to be a monk.

    Rinpoche also showed to us that if we have good intention and determination in dharma we can achieve our goal. For example, Rinpoche do 100 prostration daily to Zong Rinpoche’s photo in order to create a cause for him to learn from Zong Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring story so we do not give up and continue learning and practising dharma .

    Geshe Thupten Lama is one of the great scholars and masters who has upheld the lineage of Lord Buddha’s liberating teachings ., Geshe Thupten Lama would not abandon the practice of Dorje Shugden was brand an evil Chinese spy,and enemy, His life was threatened ,was forced to seek political asylum in America.He was one brave masters to write 3 letters asking Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.He has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan government in exile.Many practitioners has suffered due to the ban .It has caused disharmony within the Tibetan communities throughout the world.May H.H Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje shugden to restore peace and harmony.

    How to Rely upon Dorje Shugden

    Relying on a Dharma Protector or Dharmapala is an essential and beneficial practice within Vajrayana Buddhism. As a result of living in the Kaliyuga (degenerate) age, where negative karma is immense and distractions from the spiritual path are abundant, treading the path to Enlightenment can be an arduous and obstacle-ridden road.

    There’s a topic most people find a little awkward to talk about, and that’s sponsorship in the Dharma. People find it awkward because they think money is not a very spiritual thing to discuss. Yet it is an unavoidable subject because it’s a simple fact of life in samsara – monasteries and Dharma institutions would never be able to survive without the kindness of sponsors, and if they did not have the funds.

    The Meaning Behind Dorje Shugden’s Form
    Like the Buddha, Dorje Shugden’s body manifested from his great attainments. Hence, every part of his form has deep spiritual significance. Dorje Shugden’s entire body represents the complete path of the Lamrim or the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, and meditating upon it with correct understanding will generate great merits and spiritual attainments. This is a brief explanation of Dorje Shugden’s form: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/overview/the-meaning-behind-dorje-shugdens-form

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

Don\'t wait for the perfect group. Don\'t wait for the perfect person. Don\'t wait for the perfect situation. Don\'t expect yourself to be perfect. Don\'t even look for perfection at least in our realm as it does not exist or time will run out. Just get going and keep doing good. It\'s between you and yourself. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
  • His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
