General Characteristics of a Dog

The Dog is the most likeable of the signs being very amiable and extremely accommodating to others’ needs. He finds it easy and natural to be giving and helpful – altruism is an inherent part of who he is and all that he does.

Driven only by goodness, the righteous Dog will put his all into righting wrongs and helping to relieve the suffering of others. He himself has little personal ambition – he doesn’t have any particular desire to jostle for power, status nor wealth, which makes it all the easier for him to sacrifice any and everything he has for the sake of someone else’s happiness. They are at their best playing supportive roles. He is truly man’s best friend and is in his strongest element when he is able to help someone.

The Dog is also very grounded and realistic, with his two feet firmly on the ground. He is reliable, trustworthy and committed and you can be sure of his loyalty and friendship until the very end.

 

Strengths

Stalwart and dependable, the Dog is most beloved for his strong sense of loyalty and devotion – you can count on him to be there for you to the end of your days. He is also highly ethical and won’t stand for injustice – the kind-hearted Dog will do everything in his might to stand up for the underdog and to protect his loved ones. Even if he doesn’t know you that well, he will always champion a cause to right a wrong and help those truly in need.

This is one of the most selfless and altruistic signs who easily puts the needs of others before himself. For others, he will work hard and steadily, he will go all out of his way to help and defend them, he will sit for hours and let you cry on his shoulder. He is generally easy-going in dealing with people and even if slighted, is not one to hold a grudge nor want to extract revenge.

He is also one of the most reliable signs – once he’s promised something, you can be sure he will honour his word. He is a good, stable worker and though he may not produce the most astonishing kind of results, his steadiness is a much respected, lifelong quality. The Dog is also very tough, with a high threshold for pain and hardship, particularly if it is for others’ benefit.

 

 

Weaknesses

 

Much as he is a hugely loyal friend, the Dog must first be fully convinced that you are worth being a friend to. It will take some convincing to get him fully and strongly on your side. He doesn’t allow for in-betweens – you’re either his friend or you’re not and it’ll be hard to change his mind about either once he’s made up his mind. He is also a stickler for tradition and convention – it is difficult to get him to accept unconventional new ideas.

The Dog can have the tendency to be moody and pessimistic, especially about himself and his own capabilities. Because he has difficulty dealing with his emotions and expressing himself in a constructive way, he can tend to become moody, impatient and snappy. Often, a Dog may be regarded as cold to someone he’s not close to, but he’s actually just on guard and not quite sure how to open himself emotionally to others.

The Dog is also known for being critical and finds himself instinctively drawn towards negative patterns of thinking. He can be critical of both people and situations, with the pessimistic tendency to always anticipate worst-case scenarios. More often than not, his worries are just self-imposed burdens and not nearly as bad as he imagines them to be.

 

Career and Working Life

The Dog is always helpful and always ready to step forward to work. He’d make an excellent member of a team, willing to pitch in and help wherever he can without demanding any recognition or attention. His altruistic nature and loyalty will see him through any task and look out for his teammates too – he’ll be more than happy to step forward to help a colleague if it will lessen his burden.

He is also grounded and realistic. While some may find this boring and unstimulating, he will be the one the team can always depend on to keep the most level head and keep the team unified and happy. He is the perfect pacifist. You can count on the Dog to be the most honest worker too. He’ll never cut corners or try to shortchange his clients; he’s too ethical for that. He earns his success by sheer conscientious hard work, sincerity and determination.

 

Love and Relationships

 

This man’s best friend is a conundrum – though he is among the most trustworthy and reliable of friends, he himself has trouble trusting others. It will take him a long way to open up and accept someone completely, though when he eventually does, you know you’ll have a loving partner forever. Once in a relationship, they have little problems because they are so giving and will bend over backwards for the happiness and wellbeing of their partner. A Dog seems to live by the rule that if his loved ones are happy, he is happy, which makes for harmony all around.

The only aspect of a Dog which will have a negative impact on his relationship is his worrying, insecurities and general pessimism. This might weight heavy on his partner and cause tensions if the partner isn’t able or willing to constantly reassure him and boost his confidence.

 

Finance

Not inclined to an extravagant lifestyle, the Dog takes a practical approach to everything, including finances. He goes about with his head squarely on his shoulders and will not spend unnecessarily.

This does not mean the Dog is stingy, he’s just prudent about the way he spends and will get the best out of every purchase. He won’t understand the need for things like impulse buys or extravagant, excessive spending.

 

Social life

The Dog will categorise you either as a friend or a foe. There is none of that uncertain in-between of “acquaintances” or “associates”. If you’re not his friend, he will always be wary of you. Like a cautious, snarling guard dog, he’ll subject you to a lifetime of criticism and show you his bad tempers. If you’re lucky enough to be his friend, you’ll be in for life and he will do everything he can to protect his friends.

Socially, the Dog will probably not be the life of the party. If life were a movie, he’d be the supporting actor; in sport he’d be the cheerleader. He’ll be the best audience for his more outgoing friends – he’ll listen attentively as you tell your stories, laugh at all your jokes and be the peace-making, unifying factor in any group of friends.

 

Life Lessons

Life would be happier for the Dog if he learnt to be more tolerant of others and forgiving of their misdemeanors. He should try to practise looking for the good in others and focusing on their strengths, rather than dwell on their faults and harp on the wrongs they have done.

It would also to be his advantage if he were less obstinate and more open to embracing new ideas instead of holding on so fast to older, traditional ways of thinking. In general the Dog could do with a lot of lightening up and letting go! He can be overly serious and anxious, worrying about outcomes that may never happen. This is the key point – if he realizes that he cannot control every situation exactly as he wants it, he will be able to live more freely.

 

COMPATIBILITY

Who the Dog will snuggle up to

 

Actually, because the Dog will usually give in to others and finds it natural and easy to sacrifice his own needs for others, it is relatively easier for him to get along with almost every other animal.

The Dog is in the same affinity trio as the Tiger and Horse. A spirited and noble-thinking group, they work exceptionally well together to fight for causes they believe in and champion the underdog. Individually, the Dog will indulge the Tiger’s headstrong tendencies, while the Tiger appreciates the firm grounding that the Dog insists on. While the Horse and Dog have contrasting modes of working, with the former being very impulsive and the latter very grounded, they are both very amiable, people persons and will be able to accommodate each other.

Other signs known for their friendliness and altruistic dispositions – such as the Rabbit and Boar – will also get along well with the Dog. They will always know how to work with each other gently and amicably, making full use of each other’s skills and talents without either side being demanding or imposing.

The Dog also finds a good friend in the Snake, whose ambition and drive he will like. At the same time, the normally cautious, untrusting Snake appreciates the Dog’s loyalty, propensity for goodness and honesty.

 

Who the Dog will bite

The Dog’s most direct opponent is the Dragon, whose powerful nature is perhaps a little too overwhelming for him.

He will also be at odds with the Ox. Both are very serious personalities and the Dog’s naturally defensive instincts will feel challenged by the Ox’s unmoving, unbending firmness. Similarly, the worrisome nature of both Sheep and Dog will be a cause for conflict between the two. Neither will be able to assure the other and their insecurities will only rub each other up the wrong way.

The Rooster, too loud and eccentric for the grounded Dog, will also prove a difficult match for him. He won’t be able to understand the extravagance of the Rooster.

 

How to work well with a Dog

Understand that the Dog is a grounded, solid character who values goodness and honesty above all. Never try underhanded tricks with the Dog nor try to evade the correct way of doing things – he will never stand for deception nor for your belittling of others.

You must also realise that it takes a lot for the Dog to be convinced and want to accept you as a friend. To truly befriend a Dog however, is quite simple – you just need to be honest, upfront, consistent and kind. Keep your promises and support him by the causes that he’s fighting for (you can rest assured they are always good).

The worrying Dog also needs quite a lot of reassurance so repay his lifetime of kindness to you by helping to keep his worries at bay and doing all you can to allay his fears.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

    Interesting ….. astronauts and military personnel has discovered the existence of UFO and aliens beyond the earth. They have proof that UFO do exist and we are alone in the universe. Leroy Gordon Cooper, a space pioneer and Robert Dean a retired Command Sergeant Major in the US Army tells us all . With Leroy Gordon witnessed first-hand encounter of an actual UFO and the “Cosmic Top Secret” documents detailing alien activity on earth viewed by Robert Dean has already proven it. But it was kept secret.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing explaining the present-day technology that has affected our general well-being situation spiritually . Giving an example of why rain dance doesn’t work anymore. Spiritual practice give us aspects of the powers of the divine. Technology is a magic and its objects remains a puzzle that is hard to unlock in regards to human experiences. The effect of technology could enhance the human material civilization, but its impact was so strong to our spiritual practice, it caused human addiction. In the modern era, technology has become a seemingly ubiquitous part of everyone’s life such as computers and hand phones. The natural element are gone, environment been disturbed so things will not happen . Interesting read.
    Professor Stephen Hawking, did mention before that advances in science and technology could lead to destructions .

    Living our life in the public eye , we have a heavy responsibility on our shoulder that most people thought. But with determination and courageous Rinpoche did it without any burden. Rinpoche did it all these years, born and bred to be in the public eye, Rinpoche seemed to know what to do without thinking about it. A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives that’s what Rinpoche thought of. Rinpoche’s thought was to help them and to bless their spiritual practice in a way. Rinpoche cares more for the people than himself, of course Rinpoche loves to be alone. Rinpoche loves to alone living up the greenery mountains and clear lakes as mentioned before. Rinpoche could not avoid being in the public eye and getting recognized. Rinpoche never retaliated in whatever situation, such as the Dorje Shugden controversy ,Rinpoche kept all his vows in accordance with the Vinaya nor matter what happened.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your wonderful recalling memories with our Lama.

    I am grateful that Kechara organise this event every year so we can make offering to our ancestor, departed families and also to all sentient beings whether alive or not. We may not know what action we have engaged which afflicted others in the past and the prayer is important to purify our negative karma. Thank you Kechara for organising this event and allow us the opportunity to collect merits through the prayer and offerings.

    A very beautiful Buddha statue. With this huge size many beings can view from a far and benefit them by planting a dharma seed to them. I’m sure the statue will attract a lot of people to visit Thimpu in Bhutan. May all be blessed and rejoice for the people for are involved in the planning, sponsorship and construction.

    A very priceless sacred Dorje Shugden thangka of the 19th Century. It was commissioned by the Mongolian State Oracle, Lama Luvsankhaidav .As the Mongolian State Oracle Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav did took trance of Dorje Shugden, Nechung and Kache Marpo, significance the importance of Dorje Shugden ‘s practice at that time to the State Oracle. And they knew that it’s a very beneficial’s practice as over 350 years, high Lamas from the major schools of Tibetan Buddhis have relied on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This Dorje Shugden’s thangka can still be found in the Choijin Lama Temple Museum in Ulanbaatar, Mongolia as to this days.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog teams for this sharing.

    An interesting short biography of the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu who was the last Lama-Ruler of Mongolia. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism and the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy after the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. Interesting read of a great Lama who has played an important part in the Mongolian Buddhism history.

    China is the most populated country of the world and is the fourth largest country in the world in terms of dimension. China is one of the most powerful and influential countries of the world at the moment. China has the world’s fastest-growing major economy. China is a multi-religious country, where Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, to name a few. Buddhism has had a great influence on the local culture in China in terms of art, literature, and ideology. A great news ……Chinese government officially supports Dorje Shugden and allow Dorje Shugden practitioners their religious freedom. Well ,high time for the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) to change their political strategies on the ban of Dorje Shugden. Due to Dorje Shugden’s controversy, many had suffered , families divided, many had suffered , Dorje Shugden people had to break away from their monasteries and so forth.
    China has benefited many in terms of economy and brought changes to Tibet and other parts of China. To date the Tibetans in Tibet wants to be part of China too. Even the Dalai Lama request to be able to travel back to Tibet.
    May the ban on Dorje Shugden soon be lifted.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing the update.

    Wow …amazing a gigantic Shakyamuni Buddha statue been built up overlooking the southern approach to Thimphu , Bhutan. This golden Buddha Statue sits at one of the mountains in Thimphu known as Kunzangphodrang. Its presence reflects the dominant religion in Bhutan. Buddhism been an important part in the daily life of the Bhutanese. It was constructed in 2015 to honor the 60th birthday of Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the fourth king of Bhutan. By now this huge Buddha statue has attracted many locals as well as foreigners visiting the beautiful country of Bhutan. I do wish I could visit this amazing architecture Buddha statue in the near future. Well…it would be wonderful if Kechara Forest Retreat have such a big statue to bless the surrounding area with peace, harmony and happiness.
    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.

    2 yearss ago
    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
