Chinese Horoscopes

Aug 18, 2013 | Views: 12,349

Chinese Horoscopes may not have any religious basis. However, if it’s based on 5,000 years worth of human observation, similar trends can be found. It is the culmination of 5,000 years of observation by the ancient Chinese scholars to culminate into the analysis of each sign. Some are very accurate. Observation is the best way to gather information.

The Chinese Lunar horoscope is different from the  Western zodiac. The year you are born in isn’t the only thing taken into consideration, but also the month you were born, the time of your birth and your Western zodiac sign.

It is always interesting and entertaining to read about yourself, your good points and your horoscoped weaknesses. I guess knowing more about yourself will help you to work on what you need to work on.  It is nice to know who you can work, partner, and be friends with… also who you would find some conflict with perhaps. Of course getting along and not getting along ultimately relies on you. But it is interesting to see who you have ‘natural’ conflicts with if no efforts were made towards the relationship. It is also interesting to share with friends personality traits of people you would like to understand more about. It is always nice to have a some lead in order to find a beginning in our relations with others.

I thought this section on horoscopes would keep you coming back for further contemplations and it’s always interesting to find out more about others. Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others. Do not think whatever a horoscope says is fixed or permanent. It is a general guide to start from somewhere but don’t be stuck where it is… nothing is stagnant.  For example Snakes do not get along with Boars according to the horoscopes… But they can get along if they work at it. Horoscopes help you find ahead of time what we need to be aware of with other I guess.

Do take a look below to see which animal sign you are… It will lead to interesting discussions, ideas, and introspection’s. Have fun and enjoy. I put it here for my blog friends to enjoy… so please enjoy and share with others!!!

    I keep coming back to this chart and its quite incredible how relevant most of the information is in here. It really sums up someone rather well… It gives an insight into why someone is the way they are and it is all due to the time they were born.

    Could the time one is born be the workings of Karma as well? It surely must be as highly attained masters have total control over their rebirth, they could in fact choose the time/year they are born into… simple logic. Or do they by sheer workings of karma are born into such times based on their merits… hhmmmm… I wonder?

  2. Adrian Cho on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:14 am

    This is so nice and wonderful, that now I can knows more about each sign of chinese horoscopes in more details. Really likes this post so much and very helpful too.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post to us.

  3. CK Siah on Sep 6, 2013 at 5:38 am

    仁波切的十二生肖算命图都很精准。是可以为我们的人生做参考,但不要太谜信。

    我个人认为其实我们的生晨八字就是我们人生的功课表和业障印记,个人的好坏性格都被记录下来。

    但我相信只要我们相信佛法和禅修自己或跟着上师的教诲,累积功德,那我们的命运也会跟着改善。

    谢谢仁波切给我们的分享。

  4. Low KHJB on Aug 31, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.The Chinese horoscopes did highlight some of my characteristic. But I would take it to be a strong reminder to myself to be more mindful in my thoughts and action when I am dealing with others.Every action there would be a reaction.If I would be kind to others then reaction would be similar.I the context of my horoscope,my own ego and arrogance would be my biggest challenge to sub due .I would use the knowledge of the dharma to assist my self to follow the right path to overcome the so called inner nature of the Chinese horoscopes.

  5. James Long on Aug 28, 2013 at 10:40 am

  6. Albert Ratchaga on Aug 28, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Horoscope is through 5000 years of observation and being set with the closest possibilities of each and every character, it is the same as how Buddha observe and learn from the human life’s cycle and gain realization, I would say Horoscope is quite accurate when we live our life accordingly but it still does not work on every single human being, because of different background and situation.

    I used to have friend who are very obsessed about horoscope, they would look at horoscope in the morning almost on a daily basis, when there is days that they missed out the horoscope, they will feel very uneasy for the day and trying to reduce their activity almost to the minimum. there is so much of insecurity in their life. Horoscope may be accurate in certain way, it actually meant as a guidance for us and not for us to live in it.

    If a person who knows to utilize horoscope, they should learn about their ‘potential’ weaknesses and to work on the improvement, not ignore it and hope for miracle. We reap our own created karma, no one horoscope can help us to avoid our karma, we still have to work our way through for any and every situation arises.

  7. Shelly tai on Aug 27, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you for sharing this information . I used to like to read about my fortune during beginning of every year that was those day before I meet the dharma, after knowing the dharma I think the important thing is our mind how our mind react to sudden situation with dharma even is a negative situation we can use dharma to resolve our problem. As a guide I think is good to know someone horoscope so that we can talk to them more easily.

  8. Cliff on Aug 24, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    I don’t really know how much i can trust or believe in Chinese Horoscopes although it may most of the time be quite accucrate, we should still have to see it as a scientific fact that it is true because it has gone through 5000 years of observations so it should count for something i think haha. I am a snake and after reading through the description of the strength and weakness i do agree and disagree in certain areas but maybe in denial or over confident to certain descriptions. But it is definitely very entertaining and fun to read Chinese Horoscopes. One fact i strongly agree with is that snakes find it very difficult to have trust in others which has to be earned but can be easily lost when lied to, deceived or betrayed. I find it very hard to trust people and am quick to be judgemental, i hope i would be able to change and improve one of these personality traits of mine. Thank you for sharing this with me Rinpoche, i found it very interesting to read.

  9. wansan on Aug 23, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I’m always interested in reading my own horoscope and zodiac. Every morning I will flip over my Star Newspaper to the part where the Horoscope is and read them. Of course like what Rinpoche says, “Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others.” I use them as a guideline of the day so that I know ‘who’ or ‘what’ to avoid/pay more attention to. Thank You Rinpoche
    for sharing this.

  10. Adrian Cho on Aug 21, 2013 at 3:41 am

    This is so wonderful and meaningful too, that I can knows more about Chinese Horoscopes of each sign. I also can read through every sign on this blog.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice post.

  11. Jessica Yap on Aug 20, 2013 at 1:54 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I am a tiger, hear me roar! Hehe
    Some traits do stand true! And I even looked up the signs of my friends and family and it describe their nature well. 🙂

    Sometimes if we know how certain people are, we can learn deliver our speeches and actions in a skillful manner.. It doesn’t mean that this is the manual for life to dictate how a certain horoscope should be. It is merely a guideline to learn more abt ourselves and the people around us so that we can communicate better to have a better relationship. 🙂

    Thnk you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  12. tenzin llhamo on Aug 19, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the above. As mentioned, above are based on years of observation and shouldnt let it control who we really are. Although it might say that certain signs are not compatible but if we work towards it, we can definitely work well with each other and people around us. I dont actually believe in these signs but no harm reading about it and get some info here and there.

  13. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    It was interesting to know our behaviour under chinese horoscope. But of course it was a guidance only, , everyone still different characters even though under same group.btw, I m a dragon.

  14. David Lai on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    I love Chinese horoscopes because like many other ancient Chinese esoteric knowledge, I find them to be accurate and strangely compelling. However, I am not really a fan of the predictive quality of Chinese horoscope but I do find that psychological aspect very interesting. I think the account on my horoscope was pretty accurate with a few minor misses.

    I think this observational knowledge makes for an accurate description of the personalities of each of the zodiac sign. I believe that this is a good guide for people and can be somewhat Dharmic is the self-reflection and helps us to apply the right remedies to counter character flaws and weaknesses. It would definitely help us to work or get along with certain characters as well. Ultimately, the Dharma is the best Zodiac for people. It just needs us to apply it and experience the rewards of transformation.

  15. AdelineTan on Aug 19, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Out of curiosity i just read my horoscopes from here and found it to be very true and i enjoyed reading it he he.

    Dear Rinpoche, I’m a rabbit, my sister is an ox, my father is a dragon and my mother is a horse. I don’t know much about Chinese Horoscopes but I do know that if you are 6years apart than another person, then your relationship between each other wouldn’t be good.

  18. tsemtulku on Sep 5, 2011 at 6:54 am

    The element you are born into has tremendous effect on your personality. A fire snake would be more aggressive than those born under a water snake. Water snakes are more quiet and not as aggressive but very versatile. Metal snakes are more stubborn or stuck on ideas as oppose to a fire snake. Fire snakes can be very vengeful where as a wood snake is more forgiving. Elements are important to understand and how it affects you. Take a read and learn up about yourself.

      Don’t play fire with a snake.Grrrr

  19. Uncle Eddie on Aug 26, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    Like our guru said, “Horoscopes are a general overveiw, but everything can be changed, so can karma also.” It all depends on whether the person has a strong determination and desire to overcome the undesirable predictions to make the necessary changes. Even the culmination of human observations centered on their trends of longtime behavioural traits can never be as impregnable as that of karma. HOWEVER, the strong belief on horoscope reading is no more centered on the chinese and asian nationals only. Many non-chinese nationals from the americans and european blocks have joined in the the astrological wagon, to propel the futuristic forecast into a reality for a good future. Every living being from the time of their birth wants happiness and not sufferings. It is therefore important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness depending upon their own efforts and not on the forecast of the horoscopes.

  20. yek yee on Aug 25, 2011 at 1:45 am

    When I just born, my parents already used Chinese horoscope to identify my character which I hated they do like this. After I had growth up, I started read the horoscope, ya sometime it is quite accurate.But, as a reference or self-reflection is good, to me. Especially the main character is quite accurate!!!I like the part “How to work with…” very useful,hehe…!!!In Chinese we called 知己知彼,百战百胜也!

    • Frederick Law on Aug 25, 2011 at 5:20 pm

      i agree, in chinese horoscope, character wise it is 90% accurate, but still the environment and people they mingle with also plays a part in shaping their character, so it is mostly like a guide to scan through the principal of the nature.

  21. Frederick Law on Aug 25, 2011 at 12:04 am

    thank you for sharing the horoscope with us Rinpoche. i must say i was an avid believer in horoscope especially when it comes to the chinese animal zodiac during every chinese new year, i was so eager to know what is the luck of my zodiac sign on the coming new year, i am born in the year of Dog. most of the time what the horoscope predicted might be accurate, but most of the time its not, but still delusions clouded me, and i keep on reading for so many years, and still believing in the prediction.

    it is when i learn Dharma, and understand about the cause and effect of Karma, and from Dearest Rinpoche explanation here, i started to see how the luck of one person does not really depends on the horoscope foretold, for horoscope is just a guide and prediction, but it is us who determine how the course of our life should be, even we can override the negative things through applying dharma. for it is due to our low minded thinking and the ignorance of karma that we blame luck, surrounding and ppl on on our misfortune.

    Thank You again Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article with us, for many to learn more about other zodiac sign, and in the same time allowing us to understand we can override what is negative in horoscope fortune telling.

    i wish Rinpoche good health and long life. with folded hands.

  22. Tsem Rinpoche on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    Horoscopes are a general overview, but everything can be changed. Karma is not solid and permanent hence, neither are the horoscopes. If we do nothing, then what the horoscopes can reflect what is happening with us…but If we do something about it we can override everything in horoscopes and samsara.

  23. patsy on Aug 24, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    Even though I do not have an interest in horoscope, out of curiosity I check out my sign and a few of my family members and find that it is quiet accurate.

  24. Steve Tobias on Aug 24, 2011 at 10:06 am

    This is very interesting, looked up myself (Dog) and a few other people and it’s pretty accurate.

    I had someone close to me who was very into astrology. I found it frustrating because often times it made her very fearful and anxious, sort of defeatist, like things are a certain way and one can’t change them or act. It seemed to contradict karma, and cause negative results.

    If astrology and horoscopes are accurate then maybe we have the karma to be born under a certain sign at a certain time — it would make a lot of sense.

  25. Janice Kwok on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Towards the end and beginning of each year, i wld start veering myself to the section on horoscopes, both western and the chinese, to read and check on what is store for me for the year..really kiasu…hahahha. Having started now on Dharma, it is interesting to read it, not becos, the prophecies/projections by those authors will be more real but you start to think why did i become so uptight when i used to deal with those horoscope signs that are said to be less compatible with me? Thank you Rinpoche for starting this section to teach us who have heavy negative karma to learn how to contemplate and change our minds and behaviour towards others.

  26. oscar on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Rinpoche~~~didn’t know you like horoscope as well! 😀 Am doing vedic astrology and sometimes I recommend Kechara to my customers. Explore vedic astrology as well ya~~! I know next year there will be a very powerful and inspirational spiritual person rising from Asia.. is it you? 😀 😀 😀 -ur fb fan-

  27. VC on Aug 23, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    This horoscope is quite different because it is written by an enlightened beings and not ordinary human beings.it might refer to anyone of you.hehehe.

  28. Nicholas on Aug 23, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    To be frank I didn’t really follow much on horoscope.
    Use to think that attitude and behaviors influences by family, environment and friends. Not even bother to analyze or want to know peoples character as just so ignorance and selfish.

    But after learning about compassion (which is still learning) we need to understand and even have to be more mindful about people personality.

    Not to criticize but knowing how to work with them. As Rinpoche mentioned the personalities can be changed with patience, kindness & sincerity. By knowing our shortfall and we recognize it, it’s time to work on it for better.

    Thanks Rinpoche for blogging this.
    A lot of people said it is so true to them. Me too. Hehehe…..

  29. Su Ming on Aug 23, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Horoscope and Zodiac Signs used to be my favourite topic to read beginning of every year. I used to have many books by various author. It was like my bible….ie will I be rich? will my career be successful? who and what to avoid?, which animal sign should I avoid or be friends with? and etc..hehehehe.

    But after knowing dharma I realised that it is not the signs or animal that you were born under which mold us but the karma (good and bad) which is the driving force of who we are and MOST IMPORTANTLY how we can change things around for the better.

  30. VC on Aug 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Chinese horoscope is written by human.Human make mistakes and not God.Our life is fixed at birth.Human beings is watch by ’28 constellations heavenly beings’ up in the heaven monitoring each and every human beings deeds.i am not sure which heavenly beings responsible to fixed human life at birth or it is just follow some causal laws.It is written in some of buddhism books.So why bother horoscope if there is a religion to follow.I guess the heavenly beings will send their heavenly retinue or sages such as Sakyamuni Buddhas down to earth to save and liberate humanity when the time is right.

  31. henry ooi on Aug 23, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Even though Chinese read and some rely on Chinese horoscopes there are also people from different Western countries who do. But as Rinpoche writes here these horoscopes do not mean that they are 100% accurate as each individual has his/her own mind. They are a good guide and I agree one should not get caught up in them thinking that a person’s characteristics according to the Chinese horoscopes are fixed and that he/she cannot change.

  32. tsemtulku on Aug 23, 2011 at 12:52 am

    Yes I am the year of the wood snake. My root teacher Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a wood snake also.

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This story is very inspiring.Plants are very important nowadays as we, humans, require oxygen to live. The confidence level in the man has influenced him to change the barren land to a place filled with thousand of various plants.
    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
