The Buddhist Protectors of the Chinese Zodiac

Aug 31, 2011 | Views: 55,656

When the Chinese Zodiac reached Japan, it met with a very strong and positive response and became very popular among the Japanese. As Buddhism is also very strong in Japan, the Chinese Zodiac soon became linked to their religion, where 8 Buddhist Protectors became associated with each of the 12 animals of the horoscope.

It is believed that people born under each sign receive the blessings and protection of the associated Protector. As to why there are 8 Protectors and not 12, there is no definitive answer. Sources often conjecture that it must be aligned to Chinese Taoism and Feng Shui which is based upon 8 specifically connected cosmic symbols (used in divinations etc.).

It is believed if you solicit the protector related to your birth during times of obstacles, you can clear your problems faster. If pujas, prayers and mantras are done to them, then it will benefit your obstacle periods.

The relationship with the 8 respective Buddhist Protectors are as follows:

 

1. 1000-armed Chenrezig
2.
Akasagarbha
3.
Manjushri
4.
Samantabhadra
5.
Mahasthamaprapta
6.
Vairocana
7.
Acala Vidyaraja
8.
Amitabha

Senju Kannon / Kuan Yin / Chenrezig / Avalokiteshvara

The 1000-armed Buddha of Compassion

 

Kannon is the embodiment of all the Buddhas’ compassion, appearing in a female form in the Chinese / Japanese Mahayana Buddhist traditions, and as a male in the Indian / Tibetan traditions. Kannon is more commonly known as Kuan Yin in Chinese, Chenrezig in Tibetan and Avalokiteshvara in Sanskrit. Kannon’s practice is among the most popular in all Buddhist countries and she/he is often propitiated for blessings and protection. The 1000-armed form of Kannon is depicted with 1000 eyes on every hand, which are all-seeing, gazing upon all sentient beings and coming to their aid to relieve their sufferings. It is believed that in doing Kannon’s practice sincerely, we can develop great patience, peace and compassion..

 

 

 

 

Kokuzo / Namkai Nyingpo / Akasagarbha

One of the eight great Bodhisattvas, Kokuzo represents the immense vastness of Buddha’s wisdom. It was widely believed in both Japan and Chinese that this Buddha’s blessings are so powerful that merely reciting his name and mantra would bestow great wisdom, intelligence and creative powers. Because of this, he is sometimes regarded as the Patron Deity of art. His practice is not as commonly practiced now except in the Japanese Shingon lineage. However, historically, he was very widely revered and worshipped for he is able to remove obstacles, help people to recognize and overcome their weaknesses and encourage the practice of the 6 Paramitas / Perfections: Generosity, Ethics, Patience, Perseverance, Concentration and Wisdom. .

 

 

 

Monju / Jampel Yang / Manjushri

Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom, is the perfect and complete representation of enlightened Wisdom; he represents all the wisdom of all the Buddhas. He is known for bestowing great intelligence, sharpness in studying and assimilating knowledge, sharp memory, and excellent communication skills – whether written or spoken. Many students, or people who are in the industries of learning and communication – such as teachers, academics, journalists, counselors, artists, public speakers – would benefit from relying on Manjushri’s practice. Spiritual practitioners often pray to Manjushri to help them in their study and meditations, and to grant them the ultimate wisdom they need to achieve full Enlightenment. .

 

 

Fugen / Kuntu Zangpo / Samantabhadra

In our mind is the potential to reach the awakened (Buddha) mind, the attainment of primordial reality where there is no suffering. This source potential is what is called Adi-Buddha. Fugen – more commonly known as Samantabhadra – is an Adi-Buddha representing the pure, unsullied mind that arises out of practice and pure conduct. He emphasizes the importance of sincere practice and moral conduct (which would involve the holding of precepts and vows).

.

 

 

Seishi / Mahasthamaprapta

Seishi is mentioned in three very important Buddhist texts: the Immeasurable Life Sutra, the Meditation Sutra, and the Lotus Sutra. Seishi is an attendant to Amitabha and a guardian of Wisdom. He also represents great strength. In Japan, he is depicted in part of a trio, together with Amitabha and Chenrezig, and is part of a very strong Pure Land tradition. It is believed that this trio helps to lead the deceased to Sukhavati, Amitabha’s Pure Land.

.

 

 

Dainichi / Nangpa Nangdze / Vairocana

Dainichi is more commonly known by his Sanskrit name, Vairocana, worshipped as a part of the 5 Dhayani Buddhas or 5 Buddha families. He is sometimes also referred to as the “primordial Buddha” and regarded as the embodiment of “Dharmakaya”, the ultimate, formless truth body of the Buddha. He also represents Emptiness (Shunyata) and is often depicted performing the Dharmacakra (teaching) mudra, symbolizing that he can teach us the way to achieve Emptiness and Enlightenment. As the realization of Emptiness is the direct counter to ignorance, our prayers to this Buddha can help us to cut away ignorance, gain wisdom and help us to realise the ultimate truth and nature of all things. This is very powerful and one of the two aspects we need to attain full Enlightenment (the other being Bodhicitta, Great Compassion).

.

 

 

Fudo / Acala Vidyaraja

This Protector is known for being very swift at removing obstacles, particularly to Dharma practice. He is also able to clear very heavy, serious negative energies. As part of a group called the “Five Great Kings” or the “Five Knowledge Kings”, Fudo  / Acala Vidyaraja is characterized by a wrathful expression, used to “scare” away interferences and evil beings. Anyone who prayers to this Protector Buddha can be assured of protection.

.

 

 

 

Amida / Opakme / Amitabha

 

Many Chinese and Japanese would have an especially strong affinity with Amitabha, having relied on his practice for many generations. Known to be the Buddha of Infinite Light or Infinite Life, Amitabha’s peaceful practice helps people to create the cause to be reborn in his pure realm of Sukhavati. Amitabha, in the form of Amitayus, is also a long-life deity and is known for bestowing blessings of longevity and good health. Many very large Buddhist schools around the world – both East and West – are based upon Amitabha’s practice.

    The meaning of night for me is the time to have the strength, to relax and to stop the time to think so to be ready to face the new trials ahead after I wake up in the morning. The scar on my knees is a proof that I am rising more robust to be the bravest, a real warrior.

    I am a Horse and my Buddhist protector is Mahasthamapranta. I have never heard of him before, so now I know.

    Seishi / Mahasthamaprapta

    Seishi is mentioned in three very important Buddhist texts: the Immeasurable Life Sutra, the Meditation Sutra, and the Lotus Sutra. Seishi is an attendant to Amitabha and a guardian of Wisdom. He also represents great strength. In Japan, he is depicted in part of a trio, together with Amitabha and Chenrezig, and is part of a very strong Pure Land tradition.

    Thank you Rinpoche, these infos are AWESOME!! I have learn so much 🙂 Mekmek..

  18. Cynthia on Sep 20, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    In Singapore’s Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, they have this concept and section of matching Buddhas with Chinese zodiac. Basically, they displayed the Buddhas with write-up at the bottom. I thought it was such a great idea which we could somehow implement in future for KWPC as it’s the kind of thing people are most interested in. Maybe because it helps people to identify which protector they can propitiate if they dont have a yidam, etc as there are so many to choose from. Or maybe people like it that certain protectors can help us faster than another.

  19. henry ooi on Sep 11, 2011 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this interesting and informative post. I will refer people who are interested in reading Chinese Zodiac signs to this.

  20. Raluca on Sep 9, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Thank you! Now I know my protector is Samantabhadra!

  21. kenny wong on Sep 8, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    dear Rinpoche,

    thank you for sharing such wonderful insights with us, now I know and will not be lazy and skip the majushri practice during my daily saddhna. So luckly to be a wood rabbit with such a powerful natural protector. 🙂

  22. Jeffrey Yee on Sep 7, 2011 at 12:00 am

    Have always been making guesses about the third Buddha who is part of the trio. Managed to figure out Amitabha and Avalokiteshvara but didn’t know anything about Seishi, now the puzzle is complete!

    Lucky to be a rabbit. Tsem Rinpoche and Manjushri for the win! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting infos.

  23. Frederick Law on Sep 6, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    Eating eat is actually eating a dead body if we think deeper. Since we have a choice, why choose to eat meat? The biggest animals in the world, the elephants are vegetarian, if elephants can survive on a vegetarian diet, why can’t we? Let’s be kind and stop eating meat.

    22 years ago, the Tibetan leadership CTA (Central Tibetan Administration) imposed a ban on Dorje Shugden. Whoever still wants to do the practice will be ostracised by the CTA and the Tibetan community. Dorje Shugden ban has created disharmony and caused conflict among the Tibetans. Many friends and family are separated because some want to continue to practice Dorje Shugden, some don’t want to. The ban doesn’t only affect the Tibetans, it affects all Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    Who is Vajrayogini? What do you know about her? Vajrayogini is a higher tantric practice that is very suitable for modern people. Her practice is short but powerful. Many high lamas such as Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche are Vajrayogini practitioners. Even though untold, but after Lama Tsongkhapa passed away, it was found that he was also a strong Vajrayogini practitioner. In the past, people without the initiation to Vajrayogini practice would not be able to see her image. But Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to introduce us to Vajrayogini so we can connect to her. If we don’t have the good fortune to receive her practice in this life, hopefully, we will be able to do her practice in our future life.

    Kandy in Sri Lanka is a beautiful and balmy city popular amongst spiritual, cultural, and nature seekers. One of the most important sites in Kandy is the golden-roofed Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic (Sri Dalada Maligawa) where one can visit the most important Buddhist relic – a tooth of the Buddha. It is believed that by making offerings and prayers to the Buddha’s sacred relics, one will be blessed and protected.

    A particular place can be considered holy when at least one of the following criteria is met:

    1) Someone had engaged in intensive meditation to generate higher insight and state of mind (e.g., love, compassion, and bodhicitta) in the area and therefore infused positive energy into the place.
    2) Someone had a pure vision of a holy being (for example, a Buddha, a Mahasiddha, daka, or dakini) and/or received teachings from the holy being(s) in the area. This would have imbued the place with the energy and blessings of the holy beings and/or teachings.
    3) A place where holy beings abide or where supernatural beings engaged in virtuous activities, which blessed the place with positive energy.
    4) The place was blessed or consecrated by a highly realised being who invited the enlightened beings to reside there.

    When visiting places that have been blessed, visitors can feel a sense of peace, happiness, healing, and well-being from the positive energy of that environment. It can also leave a spiritual imprint or open up an existing positive imprint in the minds of visitors or pilgrims, which can help spur them on their spiritual path.

    On 13 September 2017, a group of 38 Kecharians from all over the world – Malaysia, Canada and Hong Kong – gathered at Beijing Airport, prepared to embark on a spiritual journey to the world famous Buddhist mountain Wu Tai Shan. It is a place close to our hearts because it is the earthly abode of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and his emanation, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

    During our monthly Dorje Shugden kangso (fulfilment ritual) held in Kechara Forest Retreat, we invite Dorje Shugden from the five places where he abides to bless us. Wu Tai Shan is one of these places. Thus, we are extremely fortunate to be able to visit the abodes of Lord Manjushri and Dorje Shugden on earth with the blessings of our guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche.

    Thank you for sharing this article.You have pointed it correctly that many live in denial of their wrong doing and pretend it never happened. What makes regrets more beautiful is how we learn from it .

    Simply regret does not bring us any where or improve the situation. Regret is not a punishment. Repair what we damaged. Accept our fault. Learn a lesson and never repeat that mistake.

    Thank you so much for this article. By reading this article, i get to know that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last of the Drepung Zimkhang Gongma line of incarnations. In one of his previous lifetimes as Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen the leading disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa, he made a firm commitment to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s special teaching of Nagarjuna’s Middle Way view.

    It was said that he did so on the behest of the Protector Nechung who manifested as a white dove and hovered over one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. Later on Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen explained to Nechung that he did not have it in him to generate wrathful energy, which was necessary to become a Protector. Thank you.

    Thank you for this article. It is true that Dalai Lama once made a public statement that the practice of Dorje Shugden is malevolent and that it should be stopped. Why? After that resolutions and constitutions to persecute and ostracize those who do not abide by the demands of the Tibetan leadership has been done.

    Actually this article aims to give insight, with supporting evidence, to reveal the glaring suffering that is a direct consequence of the Tibetan leadership’s prohibition of Dorje Shugden’s practice which is presented without a doubt, that despite continued denials by Tibetan authorities. Thank you.

    Thank you for this article. I’m very happy to know that the latest addition of our very own Bigfoot Cafe is know here in Bentong with amazing vegetarian dining scene. It is located at Bentong town which is less than five kilometers from Kechara Forest Retreat, to spread an alternative diet of loving kindness.

    Bigfoot cafe in Bentong town promotes vegetarianism where it is a diet of compassion, primarily because animal lives need not be sacrificed to provide us with sustenance and to please our taste buds. In addition, we are kinder to ourselves by eating better and healthier. Thank you.

    Ghosts are commonly featured in Chinese folklore. Ghost stories existed as part of the old oral tradition during the Shang Dynasty (1600 – 1046 BCE) and expanded further as Chinese literature began to flourish. Ghost stories continue to be popular today, not just in China but also in the Southeast Asian region.

    Generally, the ghost is perceived to be the non-corporeal manifestation of a person who has died. According to folklore, Chinese ghosts are usually malevolent in nature, cause harm and create chaos for the living. The ancient Chinese were huge believers in ghosts as they thought that when a person died, their soul would journey across a bridge to the afterlife.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this picture. It is inspiring to see how devoted Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo to her guru. She has lived in solitary retreat for over 12 years in the mountains, and her attainments are incredible. I enjoyed reading her book very much, which is fascinating to know what happened when one lives in solitude for so long. What did they do to spend their time and what kind of problems they encounter during those years up in the mountain?

    In her book, it was mentioned that the 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche referred to her as “his nun” before. It seems that the relationship between Jetsunma and her guru has a long history which extends beyond 1 lifetime. When Jetsunma first met the young 9th Khamtrul Rinpoche, the young Rinpoche also said the same thing to her.

    Hence, the relationship between a student a teacher is much more sacred and complicated than what we can see. It was said that a spiritual teacher would be responsible for the student’s spiritual journey until enlightenment once the Samaya is established. They will meet again and again until the student achieves Buddhahood in the end.

    It is said that if we make big Buddha, we can also collect more merits. Therefore, if we can afford, we should make a big statue. Merit is important especially for a Dharma practitioner. We need merit to support our spiritual practice.

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

    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
