The Life Path Number is the single most important number in your Numerology chart. This number represents you at birth and the characteristics that you will carry with you throughout your life. It is a general guide to the opportunities and challenges you will have to face and overcome in order to evolve into the best possible version of yourself. By understanding your Life Path Number, you will be able to control your weaknesses and harness your strengths to assist you on your journey and live a fulfilling life.

 



Life Path 1: The Leader

LP-1

1 is the number of creation, the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. Number 1s are often praised for their uniqueness, creativity and originality. A born leader, you crave respect and to stand out from the crowd, yet wish to be a part of the team. Once you have passed this learning curve and gained the ability to lead alongside rather than by dominating others, especially in situations where things are not going as planned, you will make one of the best leaders and managers in most environments.

The Number 1 is a fighter and rarely gives in to defeat. You are determined. No one can stop you once you are set on your goals. Under favorable and positive conditions, you are a gifted and innovative thinker who has the ability to solve everyday challenges using a practical approach.

You are someone who believes that the sky is the limit. You are always in the forefront. Using your creativity, you powerfully direct your thoughts to materializing your goals, allowing you to achieve your dreams with greater ease.

Although you have a creative mind, you are also practical and dislike wasting time on ideas that do not bring the desired results. You prefer to be in control rather than in a supportive role. Because your sense of fulfilment comes from work more than any other source, those who work for you are often pushed to their limits as you do not tolerate shortcomings in yourself or others. However, despite your harshness, you are often the first person others look to for leadership and guidance.

You have a strong sense of right and wrong. Courageous and unafraid of confrontation, you often find yourself standing up against injustice and involved in activism.

Due to your straightforward attitude, you see the world and the people around you for what they truly are. You are fun to be with and you have a great capacity for humor even if you’re the butt of the joke. During times of trouble, you often emerge as a brave protector, caring and providing for those you care about. This makes you one of the best friends to have in both good and bad times.

 

Central Focus

You must learn the benefits of independence and work through your self-confidence and identity issues. You have to depend less on others and stand on your own two feet. You should develop more tact and master your explosive aggression by being harmonious with those around you.

Achieving these will help you to become a better leader or initiator. When people gain confidence in your capabilities and talents, there will be plenty of opportunities.

 

Negative Expression

As you struggle to gain independence, it may feel as though you are at everyone’s beck and call. While you are a giving person, dissatisfaction may grow beneath your generosity although it may be well hidden.

You may be concerned with your own needs to the exclusion of all else. You must understand the difference between self-centeredness and independence.

You may be dominating and egoistical to the point of being your own enemy. Sometimes you may be overconfident and impatient with the advice of others. Because of that, you are not able to listen and benefit from different views.

 

Advice

In order to reap the benefits of being independent, you must learn to rely less on others although there are plenty of opportunities to do so. This may cause you to feel a little alienated but continue to develop the strength and courage to trust in your qualities.

There is much potential for accomplishment and creativity, so don’t let your competitive nature get ahead of you. You will enjoy long term satisfaction, financial compensation, a position of high status and praise for your achievements.

Life Path 2: The Peacemaker

LP-2

Number 2s are gentle, patient and kind. Diplomatic and peace-loving, you avoid confrontation at all costs to maintain the peace and harmony. Due to your overwhelming desire to please and inability to say ‘No’, others often take you for granted. You also have the tendency to hide your unhappiness and resentment to avoid upsetting others.

While you are often perceived as weak, your power and strength are underestimated and it is your choice to take the path of humility and servitude. In truth, your resilience, tact and intelligence make you the main influencer behind any person of power.

You are sensitive to negative energies and need a healthy environment consistently. A balanced lifestyle of work as well as family and personal development is crucial for your well-being. You are also the most intuitive of all the single-digit numbers. This sensitivity makes you a natural psychologist, enabling you to easily understand people and influence the outcome of most scenarios without others realizing the role you played. You are greatly valued for your ability to interact with others.

You prefer to work behind the scenes and although you are rarely in the limelight, people are impressed by your personality and achievements. You shine in the arts and are a witty conversationalist, making you wonderful company in social gatherings. You are sophisticated and have a taste for the finer things in life. Many 2s are also musically talented or have great passion for music.

Although gentle and loving, when mistreated, your anger is unmatched. Your adversaries will soon learn of your vengeful methods which you carry out without any remorse or regret.

Despite your shortcomings, hypersensitivity and insecurities, you make a great partner and are well worth the trouble. You are loyal and protective but emotionally demanding. You are a great listener and would do anything for the people you love. As the peacemaker, you are often the first to initiate conciliatory efforts in times of conflict.

You have a natural clarity of mind and along with your strong observation skills, you are able to guide and help others. However, you have a bad temper and can be unreasonable at times over trivial matters. As you are non-confrontational, your emotional outbursts are quiet but daunting as you give others the cold shoulder for long periods of time.

 

Central Focus

You must learn the satisfaction of contributing your talents as an organiser and facilitator in groups. You must use your skills of persuasion to accomplish what others do through force. You must accept that your ideas can be better spread by those with more dynamism. Being comfortable with others taking the credit for your ideas is also another life lesson for you.

You should develop your sensitivities and skills at working with others to a high level. You will find great satisfaction when promoting harmony. Giving love, care, support and healing to those around you will give you a greater sense of purpose. By fulfilling your life goals, the world will be a better place because of your presence.

 

Negative Expression

At times, you refuse to accept the role you are assigned. You feel that it’s better to be a leader than part of the group. You may sometimes cause more confusion than harmony. You are likely to blame others and not yourself when that happens. You may become shy, uncertain and contribute very little as a member of the group due to your sensitive nature. You may also appear apathetic or indifferent to protect yourself.

 

Advice

Your growth and development involves controlling and balancing your sensitive nature. You must find a path where you can love and believe in yourself to avoid feeling hurt constantly. Your sensitivities must be finely attuned in order for you to be a good friend, lover or diplomat in the highest sense. You must learn how to deal with others’ insensitivity without being overwhelmed.

You should define your limits, boundaries and develop the strength to say ‘No’. To be honest about your feelings is also a personal goal for a Number 2, so that you are not taken for granted.

Life Path 3: The Communicator

LP-3

Young at heart, you are loving, witty and fun to be around. You have a strong need to express your feelings, ideas and thoughts, making you part of the group of artists and creators in the world. Your greatest gift is your natural talent as an entertainer, and your magnetic charisma gives you the ability to uplift and inspire all those around you. To maintain your well-being and happiness, you need to be able to express your creativity through an outlet, be it words, art or even concepts and ideas.

Despite your talents, your lack of discipline often causes you to be a non-achiever, as you procrastinate, abandon projects and dodge responsibilities. You are challenged when obstacles arise as they reveal your lack of inner strength. However, despite your shortcomings, your cheerful, extrovert personality and excellent social skills draw many people to you and they are usually willing to overlook your negative traits.

Without the support of family and friends, your lack of moral strength and spiritual depth can make you a victim of circumstance. A lack of self-discipline will usually result in a disorganized and chaotic life for a Number 3.

You have deep-seated insecurities and often find commitment and loyalty a challenge, which dooms many of your relationships. As a result, when faced with difficult situations, it is not unusual to see cheerful number 3s transform into vulnerable, self-pitying individuals. However, if you address your weaknesses, you will begin to exude a serene sense of wisdom.

You relate happiness with material possessions and short-lived experiences that give you a ‘high’, such as a new car or a new relationship. It is difficult for you to think about achieving higher happiness due to the distractions of your everyday enjoyments. However, if you are able to overcome the illusion of samsara’s short-lived happiness, you will be a qualified guide to assist others to attain the same wisdom.

 

Central Focus

The experience of pure joy and sharing that with others is your life lesson. It is the first step for you to appreciate the beauty of the world. If you are more open and warm, others are likely to look up to you.

You are aware of your special talents. You have an active imagination and your artistic inclinations are waiting to be explored. You will excel in the arts, painting, sculpture and music as well as in writing and drama. Convey the beauty you experience through artistic expression.

 

Negative Expression

You may enjoy life too much to the extent of becoming frivolous and superficial, and you may have little sense of purpose. When facing difficulties in developing your talents, you may retreat into yourself. You may also feel uncomfortable in social situations and hide your feelings instead of expressing them. When you feel hurt, you become critical, moody and derogatory. You are also very undisciplined and possess low self-esteem which causes you to avoid responsibilities.

 

Advice

Your approach to life is positive and sunny. You are careful and deal with problems more easily than others, and are not resentful as long as you are able to express yourself. You remain warm and friendly despite life’s challenges.

You take time to mature. Your moodiness and frivolity may be difficult to control. Achieving emotional balance is crucial to overcoming your self-doubt and negative views. It is only through internal growth that you will be able to express yourself creatively.

Life Path 4: The Guide

LP-4

You are a traditionalist and stick to your sense of morality, which sometimes makes you label things as either right or wrong, black or white. When convinced you’re ‘doing the right thing’, you hold on strongly to this belief which may cause you to be intolerant, especially in environments that you are unfamiliar with.

Number 4s are dedicated and take their responsibilities seriously. Your conscience pushes you to do the honorable thing. You are dependable, productive, punctual and obedient. Your grounded personality often makes you the pillar of support in most situations. Although you generally don’t do well in social gatherings, when disharmony arises, you are the one most likely to pull everyone together.

Integrity is important to you and you show it through your actions. Having stability emotionally, physically and financially is also important for your well-being. Due to these factors, you are disciplined and focus on your goals in a systematic manner, creating routines and trying to control your environment and those around you. This attitude results in your being perceived as boring, and you become frustrated when you are held back by your own and others’ limitations. Learning how to be more flexible and developing patience is important for your growth.

While you lack creativity and artistic talent, you make up for it with your work ethic. You find fulfilment in your accomplishments and are result-driven. Although you are not a visionary leader, you can be an excellent manager in business or government sectors. In order to reach the top, you must overcome your lack of social skills, intuition, and inability to relate to your co-workers.

You feel safe within the boundaries of established religious doctrine and it is possible for you to pursue a calling as a monk, priest or other religious figure. A career in the military is also possible, where your obedience and discipline are highly prized. You thrive in positions that involve administrative and organisational work.

As a partner, you are stable and a good provider. However, you can be controlling, intolerant, judgemental and emotionally withdrawn. Despite these shortcomings, you make up for it with your loyalty and devotion to family and friends, and your bravery in protecting and providing for their needs.

 

Central Focus

You must realise the benefits of order and systems in accomplishing your work. You must also learn the rewards of service. You will most likely be involved in hands-on work; work hard with patience and reliability once you are given a duty.

Most importantly, you must learn to be flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances. Embrace change and don’t allow your rigidity to limit your personal growth. Once you learn this, you will move on in life with much ease.

Take the time to express your emotions; it will improve your relationships with others. Learn to let go and make time for recreational activities to relax and bond with those you hold dear.

 

Negative Expression

You are overwhelmed and frustrated by limitations. These limitations are usually caused by your stubborn and rigid approach, but you are blind to this. Your focus on the details to the exclusion of the bigger picture limits your potential. Your frustration will show itself through bossiness and dominance.

When dissatisfied, you may go in the opposite direction and end up disorganised and irresponsible, with little sense of time and no accountability in whatever you do. This self-created disaster will further upset you, but you will not have the clarity of mind to see yourself as the cause.

 

Advice

Most people are unwilling to learn to live with limitations. The normal response is to fight the restrictions instead of embracing them. It is only when you recognise the value of letting go of what cannot be changed rather than going against the natural flow that you will see your obstacles disintegrate, allowing you to move forward.

At times, it may feel as though life is going against you. Learn to be persistent and have a positive mindset. These two attitudes will lead you to success.

Life Path 5: The Adventurer

LP-5

Dynamic and energetic, you love a good adventure and risk-taking is not a foreign concept to you. You are always on the move and rarely grounded, moving from one new place to another and one new activity to the next, constantly in search of new experiences and mental stimuli.

It is very rare to see a young Number 5 settle into a career path happily. Anything that involves a set routine will quickly put you off. It is not unusual for you to go through many different jobs before you find your niche; then you will feel grounded and begin to climb the corporate ladder. You may be attracted to careers that require frequent travelling or that provide a regular change of environment, as a tour guide, salesperson and so forth.

You are multitalented and intelligent, which is one of the reasons why you bore easily and seek out new adventures. Although these attributes are a force to be reckoned with, due to your lack of discipline you often abandon things halfway, failing to develop them to your full potential and putting yourself at a disadvantage.

You are charming, versatile, adaptable, smart, progressive and tolerant. You are definitely a social creature, funny and very good at making others feel comfortable around you. You make friends easily and can relate to anyone at any level.

Although change is an absolute necessity for you, when it comes to relationships you are surprisingly loyal to the people you love. You are however a poor judge of character and may get involved with the wrong person. Once in a relationship, it is unlikely that you will cheat on your partner. However, that doesn’t mean you will not end the partnership if you feel that your freedom is restricted.

You have your own mind and you usually rebel against dogma and ideologies. You change your mind regularly but never without good reason. You cannot be controlled but you can be won over if the argument is solid and logical.

Due to your constant need for stimuli and your uncompromising demand for freedom, you can be selfish, thoughtless and irresponsible. You rarely consider the future beyond tomorrow or next week, and worrying is not in your nature. Living life for the moment, you tend to procrastinate and can be unreliable. These attributes also make you susceptible to alcohol, drugs and other vices, especially when you’re feeling negative. It is not unusual to see a Number 5 escape ‘real life’ and indulge in gambling and other obsessive behaviours.

 

Central Focus

Your life is full of wonderful opportunities but you must learn to enjoy freedom the right way. You will experience change, unusual events, unique people and unexpected adventures. You are capable of almost anything and talented in many ways.

There is a whole world of excitement waiting for you and you are spoilt for choice. However, you must only seek out experiences that will be of benefit and not waste time indulging in the physical delights of food, sex, alcohol and drugs. Developing an even temper, moderation and restraint will help you succeed in life and not fall victim to vice.

 

Negative Expression

You are flexible and can change direction at the drop of a hat, but you can also get lost in overindulgence with no sense of the consequences. Having too many opportunities may overwhelm you.

Your lack of discipline and focus often gets the better of you as you are usually short-sighted and hope for instant gratification. You can be erratic to the point that people are frustrated just trying to keep up. On rare occasions, you may retreat to a situation in which you feel secure, like a 9-to-5 job or a stable family unit.

 

Advice

You enjoy freedom with little understanding of its constructive use. Learn how to harness your freedom to your advantage, and at the same time benefit from what you enjoy doing. This is important for your success.

As you have great talent and versatility as well as many opportunities to choose from, it may be years before you realise how little you have accomplished. Have patience and tolerance in your engagements; rather than skimming the surface, it would be better for you to stick to your endeavours for a considerable period of time to achieve sufficient depth of experience.

You need to be more grounded, and at the same time not feel constrained. Applying moderation and discipline is crucial to ensure you stay on a positive path. Learn to plan and prioritise your engagements to overcome your tendencies of selfishness and unreliability.

Life Path 6: The Counsellor

LP-6

You are all about caring, healing, protecting and teaching others. You are the stabilising factor that maintains a tight-knit family or community. However, your caring nature may be overwhelming at times and becomes intrusive and meddling. Others may also take advantage of your sacrificing nature.

You have a strong motherly energy. You enjoy sharing your knowledge and gently guiding others. Nurturing comes naturally to you, especially towards those whom you perceive as being weaker such as the young, elderly and those who are less fortunate. You also have a strong sense of responsibility and are known to be someone whom others can rely and depend on. Although you can be demanding at times, you are mature enough to work for others without expectations.

Due to your kind nature and innocence, you can be too trusting, making you an easy target. However, it is also this very nature that makes you a great advisor and counsellor, and many will find comfort by confiding in you during times of need. As a Number 6, you may find yourself particularly suited for careers such as teaching, counselling, healing and even law enforcement.

You are an idealist and perfectionist. You expect high standards from yourself and others, and you often feel that whatever you do is never enough. This characteristic may lead you to feel disappointed at the imperfections of this world.

While you are self-sacrificing, you are also filled with jealousy and are short-sighted, focusing on the minor details instead of the bigger purpose, which can be very damaging. You are also a poor judge of character and your hard-headedness makes you turn a deaf ear towards others’ good advice. You should open your mind and allow those close to you to influence your thoughts.

While Number 6s are the most stable of the nine single digits, a negative 6 can be the polar opposite of its positive counterpart. If you fall victim to a negative state of mind, you can turn against those whom you care for and sometimes even hurt them, especially if you do not receive the attention you crave. It is important to keep your emotions and health in check, as an unbalanced 6 can be destructive, vengeful and dangerous.

 

Central Focus

You are born with an innate desire to help, support and comfort others. Others will perceive this in you and will approach you for assistance. As a result, you will meet many people and some will take advantage of your kindness. Therefore it is important for you to learn how to give and take, and especially how to say ‘No’ when necessary.

You will feel responsible for both others and yourself, and you must learn to respect others’ boundaries to avoid intruding too much into their lives. Develop the skills to guide and assist those around you and empower them without over-interfering. This will be one of your biggest challenges.

It is also important for you to accept that there is no such thing as a perfect world. Learn how to let go and move on so as not to be bogged down by life’s misfortunes, whether they occur in your family, relationships or elsewhere.

 

Negative Expression

You will initially feel unhappy with your overwhelming sense of responsibility, but you will come to accept it as your life’s role. Taking responsibility does not mean that you should dominate a situation. Be careful to not become overcritical and don’t project your expectations when dealing with others.

 

Advice

In taking responsibility, you must be careful to not be taken advantage of. Many will come to you because they are unable to take care of themselves. With experience, you will come to realise that some are genuinely weak while others are reliant out of habit but are actually capable of caring for themselves. You will have to weed out these people.

You have very high expectations of yourself and you are willing to sacrifice your needs for the welfare of others. You must learn to express your individuality despite the heavy burden of responsibility you carry. In time, you will find a balance between your responsibilities and your home life and career. As a whole, you will find great satisfaction when you give unconditional love to others without neglecting yourself.

Life Path 7: The Philosopher

LP-7

No other single digit life path number thinks about the meaning of life quite as deeply as a Number 7. You are a seeker of knowledge and wisdom, and you enjoy alone time to think, analyse, study and read. Perhaps it is your constant pondering that makes you somewhat of an introvert and stranger in social gatherings.

Due to your interest in the truths of life and existence, you often give off a spiritual energy, though not always in relation to religious practice. You will find yourself dwelling on various philosophies and due to your skeptical nature, you form your beliefs only from personal experience. Thus, you spend much of your time debunking the mysteries of the universe to find your own spiritual truth.

While the mind is your biggest and greatest asset, the satisfaction you derive from these episodes of mental exploration can also be one of your biggest limitations. Intellectual understanding alone is no match for real life experiences. Finding a balance on both fronts will help you transverse greater heights.

Your intelligence and somewhat bizarre perspective of the world makes you a promising innovator. Many Number 7s are responsible for the ground-breaking technologies and scientific discoveries existent today. However, your intellectual brilliance is not always obvious from a young age and may only blossom when you’re older.

You are intuitive and a good judge of character, and easily pick out those with whom you do not wish to associate. Those wanting to form a social bond with you will find it quite challenging. You hate gossip and shallow people; neither beauty nor money earns your respect. Instead of hanging out with the bold and beautiful, you find yourself drawn to the eccentric and unpopular people as they pique your curiosity. You can be a trustworthy friend but your cynical nature makes it difficult for you to trust others, unless they have earned your confidence.

While you fare well as a loner, you also have the capability to work in a crowd. With your vast knowledge, you pull people into discussions and charm them with your wisdom. However, while a positive 7 can impress others, a negative 7 will be a torture as they can be verbally abusive, highly opinionated and a boorish know-it-all.

Money is not the main motivator in your life and you will rarely make decisions based on financial gain. Thus, you are most likely to pursue a career that you are passionate about. You are a good strategist and your excellent problem-solving skills propel you to contribute in the fields of science, psychology, education, philosophy and technology.

 

Central Focus

You have a sharp, intuitive mind; utilise it by studying, contemplating and learning for the greater good. Don’t allow the imperfections of the world to irk you. Have patience and tolerance; don’t be too quick to judge others and cultivate the peace of mind that comes from accepting yourself for who you are.

As a Number 7, sometimes you may feel different and withdraw from others as a result. However, learning to open up and trust can help you build the connections that you have always wanted. No amount of intellectual reasoning can replace actual life experiences. So, enjoy your alone time but also involve yourself with the others in your life.

 

Negative Expression

Your tactless and borderline abusive speech is off-putting even to those who adore you. Despite your intuition, your selfishness can cause you to be totally oblivious of the sufferings of others. Because of this, you may come across as cold-hearted and void of empathy.

At times, you may become a virtual recluse. As you dwell in your own world, you become disinterested in other people’s problems, yet you demand and expect others to empathise with your sufferings. Your lack of contact with the world will also make it difficult for you to develop and grow as a person.

When you find the path challenging, you tend to ignore your goals and continue on without looking for solutions within. Once you realise that you need to turn to your inner resources, your life will begin to have more meaning.

 

Advice

You thrive in jobs that call for intuition and mental and spiritual awareness without much material benefit, for example, as a teacher, counsellor or researcher. You will find great satisfaction through such careers.

You will struggle against the very experiences that will make your life work. When the people you associate with are unable to understand your need for personal space, you are likely to feel alone yet suffocated. Learning to balance the two will improve the quality of life for yourself as well as the people around you.

Once you are on track, your understanding and perceptions will provide deep satisfaction and pleasure. With that, you can progress towards ultimate wisdom and faith – the product of your growth and development.

Life Path 8: The Visionary

LP-8

You are a natural leader and you have the capacity to accumulate great wealth. Your talents lie in management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters. You are full of energy and focus strongly on what you wish to achieve. ‘Cannot’ is not part of your vocabulary and your self confidence helps you in your quest. Due to your problem-solving skills and your driven attitude for success, you are often able to attain the goals you have set for yourself.

You are associated with drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organisation, management, discipline and control. The Number 8 is goal-oriented, focused, has good judgment, practical and a realist. You tend to do well in business and authoritative roles, such as in the military and law enforcement.

The Number 8 is also known as a karmic equaliser, thus it is important for you to find balance in both the material and spiritual worlds. Cultivating a positive attitude will invite abundance, while adopting a dishonest or manipulative attitude will cause your fortunes to be reversed. The Life Path of a Number 8 is a perfect example of the laws of Cause and Effect.

At your best, you can be extremely successful in business. You also have a large heart, often generous both emotionally and materially. However, when you fall into a negative state, you will find yourself struggling financially. It is not unusual to see a Number 8 hit rock bottom several times in their life. More importantly however, your tendency of not giving up or cowering in self pity will help you to rise quicker and more successful than before.

You seem to have an innate understanding of business. You instinctively know what makes an enterprise work and what doesn’t. While your greatest strength is your vision and long term ambition, you are also a good manager, leader and a great motivator for those in your field. Many will be inspired to follow you, but their inability to understand your vision fully will require your continued guidance and encouragement to keep their morale high.

Due to materialism, you can develop a tendency to define yourself and others through wealth, status and power. It is not uncommon to see Number 8s in this state, trying to intimidate and overpower others. However, you must realise that this power struggle will not serve you and in order to gain true success, you must rise above it.

 

Central Focus

You are concerned and involved with money, learning the power that comes with it as well. You desire material things, wishing to obtain the best and most comfortable for yourself. You are also concerned with status – your own status measured against others as you are very competitive. You will only be satisfied when you achieve the power and material wealth you desire.

Bear in mind that it is important to achieve worldly success, as well as inner growth and development. You may want to use your ambitions, managerial skills and efficient approach to carve a niche for yourself.

 

Negative Expression

You may become obsessed with your pursuit of money and status to the point that you find little pleasure in the journey, even when your goals have been achieved. You may misuse your power, become intolerant of others, and in return you may face much resentment and hostility.

Although you crave financial and material success, you may sometimes be afraid to take the necessary risks. You may also feel limited and dissatisfied at times. You must achieve a higher level of self-confidence before you can make your presence known and felt in any situation.

 

Advice

Achieving a material and spiritual balance is one of the most important factors for you. You must understand the dream-like nature of the material world and develop a higher purpose in life besides amassing material wealth.

As you immerse yourself in material pursuits, realise that these are not ends in themselves and are merely means to an end. Failing to do so may cause you to lose your way and miss out on the true meaning of life.

Learning to live positively by developing an attitude of abundance and living a life filled with honesty and integrity will give you much purpose and satisfaction. Focus on your goals rather than your fears, and you will have the capacity to invite abundance.

You must also understand that your position of power does not give you the right to loom over others. Learning to lead alongside your colleagues will benefit you as much as it benefits the people around you.

You must learn to not only achieve your goals, but to maintain a sense of proportion of their importance. Living a life filled with generosity and keeping a healthy relationship with money is the key to your success. Only when you are able to do this will you be in a position to grow.

Life Path 9: The Philanthropist

LP-9

You are the humanitarian with a high social consciousness which makes you deeply concerned about the state of the world. If the Number 6 is known as the motherly figure, the Number 9 has a greater capacity to give love and care to a much larger group of individuals. You are an idealistic person and a symbol of compassion; this shows in many of your works and actions. As such, you are a source of great inspiration to others.

You are a utopian and will spend your life trying to realise some aspects of your utopian dream, sacrificing money, time and energy for a better world. It is in giving that you find much satisfaction.

You have a broad outlook on life. You tend to see the big picture rather than the minute details. You naturally attract people from all walks of life who can fit into your larger plans and take over the areas which you find uninteresting.

Number 9s are known for their creativity, which develops over time. Skills that are highly associated with Number 9s are writing, acting, dancing, painting, designing, public speaking and music. Due to your innate compassion, you may feel drawn to a life of service and choose a career that serves the public such as medicine, health care, education, military, philanthropy and also art.

A person with Life Path 9 is rarely prejudiced and does not accept social bias. Instead, you evaluate people on the basis of what they can do for the larger cause. You rarely crave the credit nor do you force yourself on others. However, when circumstances require you to stand up and take charge as a leader, you are able to take complete control. Instead of leading by inspiration, your leadership qualities arise from your ability to influence others to change their minds. Material wealth does not influence you strongly, yet you have the capacity to attract abundance when you least expect it, especially when you ignore the monetary potential.

As a partner, you are difficult to please not only because you are demanding, but because you hide your inner thoughts, making it almost impossible for your partner to completely understand you. Despite spending many years together, your partner may never know the depths of your feelings and may feel the distance when it comes to matters of the heart.

You are a loyal friend but will not allow yourself to become vulnerable. The most telling attribute of the Number 9 is the subtle sense that there is more to you than meets the eye. You have depth and intuition, and are at all times aware of your surroundings, like a person with over-developed peripheral vision.

You are most happy when you live in accordance to your high ideals. When you feel hurt or victimised, you can be condescending, arrogant, cold and apathetic towards the sufferings of others. Unfortunately, being incredibly sensitive, it is easy for a Number 9 to fall into the dark side and when that happens, you can be egoistic, cruel, immoral and malicious.

 

Central Focus

Your innate love for fellow man must be expressed through purity and humanitarian interests. You must give care, assistance and understanding when necessary, without thinking about the returns or rewards. Learn to practice selflessness, giving up ambitions and material possessions for the common good.

You will be a great partner, lover, friend, teacher or helper.

 

Negative Expression

You can be temperamental, moody and defensive when things do not go as envisioned. You need to learn how to control these negative emotions or they will be your downfall.

At times, you have difficulty believing that selflessness can be rewarding. You have to be aware of the satisfaction of the humanitarian impulse, but do not spend your time only in dreaming and planning, or going off in all directions.

 

Advice

You are set up to achieve as much status, recognition, love and friendship as anyone else. However, only those who take these rewards with selflessness and awareness of others will be truly satisfied. This may be a difficult lesson for you.

Learning to be compassionate and tolerant is important for your growth, as many Number 9s feel enriched by living a life in service of others. You should also give your creative side a chance to manifest and spend some time developing this. Be it art, music, drama or otherwise, any method through which you can express your creativity will help you align yourself with your life’s purpose.

Due to your potentiality to be negative, you must be more broadminded and learn how to forgive others. Accepting that everyone is as imperfect as you are will help you keep your prejudice and judgmental nature in check. Learn to accept, let go and move on. This will prevent you from taking a negative tail spin and becoming a person filled with anger.

Life Path 11: The Master Healer

LP-11

As the first of the master numbers, Number 11s have the potential to uplift and inspire others. You have a deep need to embark on quests to attain higher levels of consciousness and have an instinctive understanding of matters of a metaphysical nature. You feel an innate duty to pass on what you have learnt, making you an excellent teacher as your students can reach their full potential through your experience.

Being a Number 11, you have twice the creativity and leadership of a Number 1, and the augmented intuition and compassion of a Number 2. As numbers 1 and 2 are polar opposites, you may feel conflicted some of the time.

You feel the need to promote peace, healing and spiritual awareness, and with sufficient effort and a positive attitude, you are often successful in sharing your message, making you an effective spiritual messenger. Due to these combined characteristics, many influential religious leaders, inventors, prophets and leading historical figures are Number 11s.

You galvanise every situation you enter. You inspire people without conscious effort. Energy seems to flow through you without you controlling it. This gives you both power and sometimes emotional turmoil.

You have unusual maturity for your age. You are often described as an “old soul” and you have a unique ability to calmly deal with complex situations due to your vast knowledge and wisdom. Your greatest asset is your capacity for understanding, empathy, adaptability, stability and your ability to see more than meets the eye.

Your sensitivity, highly charged intuition and maturity manifests as a double-edged sword. Due to these characteristics, there is always a lot going through your mind which can cause others to misunderstand you early in life. This may cause you to be shy and withdrawn. You also end up indulging in excessive self-reflection and self-criticism, becoming overwhelmed by your gifts which causes you to develop deep fears and phobias. Although there is much to celebrate for having the supercharged energy of a master number, unfortunately if not controlled sufficiently, the downsides of the Number 11 may overwhelm you. Negative Number 11s can be identified by their indecisive, impractical, nervous and moody behaviours.

Your desire to achieve something monumental is deep and for a good reason, as you feel the immense burden and potential of what your master number is capable of. Due to this, you often place high expectations on yourself and have huge dreams that may seem unattainable or unrealistic, which in the end prevents you from achieving anything tangible. Often, failure in your life is attributed to confusion and a lack of direction. This may cause you to lose confidence, followed by deep depression and frustration.

 

Central Focus

You must learn to balance the spiritual and material worlds. With this Master Number, you are gifted with a higher than average level of awareness and perception, as well as the capability to understand things at different levels.

These abilities take much effort to develop, but once developed, you are capable of far more than most. Focusing on inner development is important for you to achieve great things in the future. You may feel your progress is slow, but it is because you have more to learn than others.

You must learn to trust and develop your intuition. You will do well in psychic or occult studies. You must recognise that you are a channel for awareness, and inspire others with your purity.

With development and growth, you will become aware of this special knowledge that was given to you. It is important that you share this illumination with others.

 

Negative Expression

You may use your abilities for self-serving goals, and although you may achieve much success through this, you will have missed out on the most powerful lesson in life that you should have learned.

You will feel uneasy and dissatisfied if you use your skills and abilities for personal ambition and not the greater good. You will occasionally get lost in your dreams, not accomplishing much, and justifying your predicament to find satisfaction.

Your hypersensitivity may subject you to stress and depression especially if you live in an unbalanced environment for long periods of time. Finding a peaceful and harmonious environment is vital for your health and well being

 

Advice

You have great abilities, and the most precious of all is your ability to face adversity victoriously and harness your experiences and inner growth from such experiences to help others. It is not an easy path, but incredibly rewarding and gratifying, as your contribution cannot be measured materially.

You will see your special awareness as having huge potential, but you may find it difficult to focus your power to put it to good use. This will create frustration and tension. You must learn patience as your full potential does not blossom until later in life. It will take you a long time to get on the track and path you are supposed to be on. While you are trying to get on this path, you are a difficult person to deal with. You may suffer bouts of nerves or temper.

You must learn the joy of serving others, as you will not go anywhere near your full potential if you only focus on yourself. You may not be spiritual by nature, but your strong intuition and kind heart will have immeasurable effects on the lives of those you meet.

You are someone with the potential to give much to others. Focus on your growth and development so that you will grow into a beautiful person that benefits the world.

Life Path 22: The Master Builder

LP-22

You were born under the most powerful and potentially the most successful of all Life Path numbers. A Master Number 22 is incredibly capable and when following the right path, they have the ability to turn big dreams and ideas into a reality.

You are honest, hardworking, and value freedom and independence. Communication is important to you. Just like the Master Number 11, you are sensitive and vulnerable to negative environments. However, if you succeed in strengthening your inner self and increasing your self esteem, you will be able to face the negative factors head on and not be affected by it.

You are highly sensitive and intuitive despite your controlled and grounded behaviour. Having this stability will aid you in serving the greater good.

 

Central Focus

Your lesson in life is tough. You must learn to combine the highest ideals with enormous power to achieve the largest of material goals.

You are gifted with the ability to attain anything and everything in the way of material pursuits. Although these powers are available to you, you must learn to focus your gifts into productive use.

You are capable of the largest of undertakings, combining commercial and perhaps political forces of a large magnitude. Your individual growth and development depends on your ability to come to grips with your power. You must work for the benefit of mankind to achieve ultimate growth and development.

 

Negative Expression

Master Number 22 is a strong number with strong characteristics, and if not developed properly, they can overwhelm you and cause a downturn. It will be wise to learn and apply patience and perseverance as materialising your dreams may not happen too soon.

It is not rare to see those who possess the master numbers to shy away from responsibilities or give themselves too much pressure, as they attempt to live up to the potential they were born with.

You are likely to keep within your comfort zones and refuse to expand your horizons. Developing yourself internally is important before you even think of materialising your dreams. If not well developed, your entire potential can go to waste.

 

Advice

It is difficult to handle powerful forces while trying to live with the tension that comes with these great powers. People will see the latent power of a Number 22, and wonder why he or she does not utilise the potent energies within.

It is important that you learn how to overcome fear of failure and adopt perseverance in your lifestyle in order to obtain good results. Mastering your hypersensitivity and insecurities is the key to achieving your full potential.

Life Path 33: The Master Nurturer

LP-33

One of the rarest numbers, only a small percentage of people have a birthdate that reduces down to the Master Number 33. The 33 is the most influential of all numbers. With the combined capability of both Master Numbers 11 and 22, and the nurturing and responsible Number 6, you have the capability to dive into projects that are beyond practicality and yet emerge victorious. However, although the Number 33 has huge possibilities and abilities, it is also the most challenging life path that take many a lifetime to understand and use productively.

You often do not rely on intuition alone, and prefer to have a full understanding and have your facts right before preaching a certain idea or ideals. Besides intuition, you are also an incredibly creative person.

As a Number 33, you feel a great sense of responsibility to reach out to the world and focus on humanitarian issues. You will reach your full potential when these actions are done without any personal agenda.

A perfectionist and sensitive individual, you often feel the need for approval from others. You also feel that you never quite meet their (or your own) idealistic standards. If you do not learn to deal with this, you will find yourself overly judgemental and criticise everything about others and yourself; and this may throw you off course in your personal development.

You need a positive outlet to express yourself, such as picking up a hobby, literature or performing arts. If you fail to find a positive outlet, you may fall into negative forms of expression such as gossiping and complaining, which is not beneficial for you or others.

You have a natural concern for the planet and its inhabitants, and you may have a desire to use your life to raise the consciousness of as many people as possible and bring them to a more positive way of life. Once you have engaged in what you believe in, you are extremely devoted to it.

Although there are not many Number 33s who live up to the full potential of their Life Path number simply because it is a truly challenging path, you can still be a great healer and teacher as your life purpose is to improve through selfless service to others.

 

Central Focus

The main task or life lesson for a Number 33 is to learn how to focus on your emotions for spiritual purposes. The challenge is to understand that serving others and taking on more responsibilities are joyful, especially when done without agenda.

You need to learn composure, the expression of love and kindness and to be always ready to respond to the needs of others. Remembering the universal principle of “everything has a reason” will help you to avoid stress and acquire balance.

One of your lessons is also to learn self-management through service, and you should always strive to balance the emotional and spiritual.

 

Negative Expression

You are an extreme perfectionist to the point where it may drive you and others up the wall due to your judgement and criticism. You must learn to not interfere with others’ lives during your journey of healing those who cross paths with you.

You may be faced with confusion: you do not always understand immediately where your help is really needed. At times you are impressed by someone’s touching stories, but unable to separate fact from fiction. You must also accept the fact that you cannot help everyone.

You can be prone to impulsiveness, mood swings, hyperactivity, control dramas (e.g. trying to rescue people), and self-criticism.

 

Advice

You are often oversensitive and the feeling of insecurity can lead to many judgemental thoughts. You need to accept and understand your own (and others) imperfections, as well as the world’s.

Avoid negative forms of expression such as gossiping and criticism, as they are not beneficial. Instead, channel your need to express yourself in positive forms such as engaging in visual and performing arts which can help develop your innate creative talents.

As a Master Number, you need to learn patience and not expect your qualities to fully blossom until later in life.

Know that you do not always have to be in control of things for it to turn out well or perfect. This is crucial as you have a tendency to engage in addictive habits or narrow your world view to feel a sense of control.

Your life path may be hard but it is also precious. You have the chance to touch many hearts in one lifetime.

    I have noticed a number of the famous people come up in more than one life path, for example Albert Einstein, why is this?

  2. Ummamageswari on Jul 11, 2019 at 12:44 pm

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about the life path number which is related to our birth and the characteristics that we will carry with ourselves throughout our life where It is a general guide to the opportunities and challenges we will have to face and overcome in order to evolve into the best possible version of ourselves.

    By reading this article, i get to know that, a person who is having the life path number 1, is a fighter and rarely gives in to defeat. Although they have a creative mind, they are also practical and dislike wasting time on ideas that do not bring the desired results where they prefer to be in control rather than in a supportive role.

    In Mahayana Buddhism, a bodhisattva refers to anyone who has generated bodhicitta, a spontaneous wish and compassionate mind to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings. Bodhisattvas are common figures in Buddhist literature and art. They exist as guides and providers to help us following the teachings about generosity, patience, meditative balance, and insight into what is essential, so we can come to live in a way that benefits others. At the same time, we learn compassion for ourselves and see that we are not separate from the people we have imagined are estranged from us. Self and other heal together.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Thanks to Dr. Matthew William King who did a detail well research article regarding Dorje Shugden in Mongolia. Through his research he has confirmed that even long before H H Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s time, at least a century before, Dorje Shugden practice was already popularized in Lhasa. The practice of Dorje Shugden by the great lamas and many others had widely invoked the dharma Protector in Mongolia. Dr King’s research clearly demonstrates that Mongolia’s lamas had been promoting and encouraging the practice. Dorje Shugden was an established practice in the Sakya School for hundreds of years before Pabongka Rinpoche’s time. Hence Dorje Shugden definitely not a evil or spirits as claimed by the Tibetan leadership. Reading through this interesting article we could understand better how Mongolian lamas have been all along protecting and preserving not only the practice of Dorje Shugden, but also of Buddhism’s revival as a whole in modern-day Mongolia.
    THANK YOU for this interesting sharing.

    Interesting read with the discovery of various legends, texts by archaeologists thousands years ago. Historians and experts had investigated and found evidence of contact between humans and extra-terrestrial life very much earlier. Their findings theory seem that extra-terrestrials have visited Earth for millions of years. Since the age of the dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, from early cave drawings to continued mass sightings in the US. Historians had revealed that aliens have been with us all along. Encounters with strange beings and sightings of mysterious objects in the sky have been recorded. Such as Christopher Columbus’ first voyage to America witnessed strange lights in the sky and sightings of flying cigar-shaped crafts were reported during the Black Plague that struck Europe and Asia in the mid-1300s. There were many others historical evidence of early civilization that had close encounters with Aliens. Interesting read and to watch the video.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    Watching the videos and looking at those pictures in this post tell us more. Sad to see the working conditions really bad especially in the brick kilns of Andhra Pradesh,India. We could see those working men, women and younf children are working round the clock 12 just to earn a living.
    We are considered more fortunate enough than them and we should not complain of what we have, live and so on. We should appreciate every moment , what we have now to do good and beneficial for others, no matter how hard and difficult at times as others might be worse than us.

    Scientists had looking at long term, discovered that estimated about 100 to 10,000 species will be extinct soon if nothing is done. Could imagine from microscopic organisms to large plants and animals will go extinct each year. Animal such as sharks, lions, Pit bulls dogs and so forth as mentioned in this blog can become extinct when humans over hunt and over fish, pollute the environment, destroy habitats , and many others. Reading this post tells us more those world’s most dangerous animals are in fact in danger themselves. But the actions of humans toward those dangerous animal has proven more dangerous than that of the animal. Interesting read .
    Thank you Shakila Rajendra for this sharing…..good knowledge . May more people are aware of the harm they are doing.

    This is kind of hard to believe and shocking to imagine the weirdest addiction of people in this planet, they are extremely strange. People can become addicted to actions, feelings, or behaviors, not just substances. There must be something behind of every addiction, I don’t think they are crazy or mentally ill, it’s their weird enjoyment for a short time.

    I had a friend in my primary school who eats mud during rainy days, she told me, it smells good and she enjoys doing it during her play time. I found it strange but has she grow up in different environment she forget about her addiction. So, I strongly believe, all behaviors can be changed when the person gains self-awareness and actually wants to change. Thanks for the interesting sharing and recall of my childhood friend.

    nteresting read of this history of how Dorje Shugden practice came into light . Since Dorje Shugden was introduced into the Sakya tradition, there have been many Sakya throne holders that practiced Dorje Shugden. Out of the 42 supreme throne holders throughout the history of the Sakya tradition, six of the thrones holders are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. They have built chapels to him, composed prayers and pujas (kangsols) to him and even propagated his practice amongst their disciples. They cannot be wrong and in fact as confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being. Dorje Shugden kangsol (prayer) to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden composed by him is still widely used today. Dorje Shugden must be a powerful Dharma protector that Sakya tradition have been long relying. It has proven that Dorje Shugden is not a minor practice. Interesting read , may more people read this post to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post .

    There are lots of people have more than one reason for choosing vegetarianism. Many people choose a vegetarian diet out of concern over animal rights or the environment and others may be based on religious beliefs or even for healthier lifestyle.

    Regardless of whether you choose a vegetarian way of life, it’s always a healthy idea to eat a wide variety of foods and try out new foods when you can.

    Thank you for the sharing and compiling the list of vegetarian restaurants and organic shops in Klang Valley. I am glad to know whereabout and hoping to try them.

    Begtse Chen, a deity of alien origin, was incorporated into the pantheon of Tibetan Buddhism as a protector of the Dharma. This Proyector is one of the eight famous Dharmapala in Tantric Buddhism. Also known as red Mahakala and is especially revered in Mongolia where the origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century. It has become the mainstay of Protector practice in Mongolia. Interesting read.
    Thank you for this sharing .

    Interesting read of Kunkhyen Choku Ozer was a lineage master of the Manjushri Namasamgiti Tantra. He became known as Kunkhyen Choku Ozer due to his ability to penetrate the meaning of the great Buddhist treatises merely just by glancing at it. He could memolised texts just by reading it once. Reading this post and information at least I can know he is also a part of Dorje Shugden’s incarnation lineage. He is also famed for establishing the ancient monastery of Dakpo Tsele.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing as many of us would not have known this GREAT Lama was part of Dorje Shugden’s incarnation lineage.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teachings on Dorje Shugden and explanation on retreat. Learning and practicing this Dorje Shugden’s practice have indeed benefited many people. And more so when to do a retreat. . We are all very fortunate to be given an opportunity to meet Tsem Rinpoche and learning, practicing all these precious teachings coming from a pure lineage that can be traced back to the time of the great Lama Tsongkhapa. A very detailed explanation on why we need the retreat and the way to do the retreat.
    Thanks again Rinpoche with folded hands.

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

    3 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

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, Can a lay person work towards the preliminary practices by accumulating daily ? Many thanks.
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Yes, of course. Anyone can engage in the preliminary practices, you don't have to be ordained in order to do so. However for one's practice to be considered a full preliminary practice, you need to do 100,000 repetitions of whichever practice you are engaged in without break. That means you must engage in at least one session a day, until the count is completed. 10% of the count is also added on top, to make up for any unintentional mistakes. So the figure would actually be 110,000. If you skip a day, that means you have broken your preliminary retreat. If this occurs you can still dedicate the practice you have done so far, and you will still benefit from the merit generated and the purification of negative karma from the practice, but it is not counted as a full preliminary practice. Also you must adhere to the retreat procedures for the duration of the time it takes you to complete the particular preliminary practice. For example, an altar with daily offerings, retreat seat with swastika, refraining from eating black foods, etc. This may not be convenient for most people in our day and age. So what you can do is to spend a certain amount of time accumulating a specific figure, for example 10,000 repetitions of a particular practice. Seal the practice at the end with a strong dedication, like the King of Prayers. Later on, you can repeat the procedure more times until you complete 100,000. This method was given by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche for modern-day practitioners who do not have the time to complete 100,000 in one go. While it technically does not constitute a full preliminary retreat, you still gain immense merits and purification from engaging in the practice, even if spaced out. As Rinpoche said, it's better for you to do mini preliminary retreats than not doing any of the preliminary practices whatsoever. That being said, if you do have the ability to do a full preliminary retreat and it will not negatively impact you, such as create financial difficulties or strain familial relationships, then of course go ahead! To have the sincere wish to engage in any Dharma practice is wonderful. You can read more about the individual preliminary practices here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/preliminary-practice.html You can watch a short teaching on the preliminary practices by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/cosmic-tantra.html

    Sandra asked: Dear respected pastors, what are dreams? Do dreams have significance? Are they simply images the mind views at night - do they resemble the dreamer's state of mind? Thank you for all your replies :) :)
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Hello. Nice to see you back here. On the normal level, both waking and dream states are both marred by our delusions. The teachings tell us that this deluded state continues through all our experiences, whether during the dreaming or waking states. The way to overcome this is to "wake up" from our delusions, or reach enlightenment. Normally when people think of dreams, they do so in psychological terms and so focus on the content of the dream. When we investigate the nature of the dream itself, we begin to investigate something deeper, the processes that underlies the whole of our existence. Understand this propels you further along the spiritual journey towards enlightenment. We have many dreams during one night of sleep, and may or may not consciously remember then when we wake up. In terms of content, dreams can be used to work through psychological issues or can indicate certain issues and overcoming them (as is common within Western psychological practices). In Tibetan Buddhism, dreams can be used for much more. In the advanced practices, one can transform ordinary dreams to further one's spiritual journey. This is not only in terms of working through psychological issues, but in terms of meditation and practice as well. Generally, there are three types of dreams as described below. Most of us only experience the first type, unless we progress on the spiritual path. 1. Samsaric dreams: these arise from karma and karmic traces in the mind. This can also include emotions, memories, etc. The meaning we find in these dreams are imputed by the dreamer, and not inherent in the dream. This also applies to waking life. We impute meaning onto situations and circumstances, rather than the meaning being inherent to the circumstance. It is like reading a book. Words in the book are just marks on paper, however, because we use our sense of meaning, we take a meaning out of it. However, this is always open to interpretation. For example, if you tell your dream to two people, they can interpret the meaning very differently, even though you told them the exact same details. 2. Clarity dreams: These dreams occur when you are fairly progressed in meditational practices and can carry this into the dream state. These dreams arise not from the emotions, or memories, etc., but from more subtler forms of karma and delusions. However, just like in waking mediational practice, you are not affected by the images or thoughts that appear to you. 3. Clear Light dreams: In the advanced tantric practices, there are teachings called dream yoga. The object of these is to achieve the clear light dreams, which are very difficult to achieve and take years and years of intense practice. The most important clear light mind that arises is actually at the time of our death, if we are trained enough in this very subtle state, we can actually control where we take rebirth. If we are more experienced in this state, then we can actually use it to meditate on the teachings and achieve enlightenment. Clear light dreams are a "lesser" type of clear light mind, that helps practitioners prepare for the time of death. When we have an auspicious dream such as of our teacher, our practice, the Buddhas, etc., even though this is auspicious, it is still more than likely to be just a samsaric dream. There are instances however, when the enlightened beings and Dharma protectors will send practitioners dreams to help with their practice or as methods of divination. Tsem Rinpoche once told us of a very powerful Nyingma lama known for his divination abilities. Students would ask him a question, then he would take a nap, and receive divination advice in this dreams, which he would then relay to his students. This lama was well-known for this ability because his dream divinations were extremely accurate. As I am sure you can tell, the scope of dreams with the Buddhist context is very vast and I will not be able to cover everything here. However, I hope that what I have written helps your understanding. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Hello dear pastors, wish we could have an article like the one below to highlight the auspicious days of 2021. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/auspicious-days.html
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your suggestion. At the moment, there are no plans to publish another article with 2021 dates. But I have listed out some of the auspicious days and their dates for this year for you. I have only included future dates, not those that have already passed.

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, Is it ok to pray from different areas in the house (even where there is no altar)? I was told you can't create 2 altars in 1 house.
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question and its nice to see you here again. The reason why we pray in front of our altars is because it becomes a focal point of the enlightened energies we are invoking. Therefore it becomes a kind of portal for the energies of transformation, peace, healing, prosperity and protection. It is also the place where we make offerings to the Buddhas. As such, most people usually only have 1 altar in their home. However, you can have more than 1 altar in your home. As it is an altar, it should be complete with representations of the body, speech and mind of the Buddhas. This would be an image (either a statue, thangka, tsa tsa, poster, framed picture, etc), a Dharma text and a stupa. In front of these, you should have at least 1 type of offering or more. This can be a fixed offering or maybe even a set of water offerings, which you make every day. Since practitioners make offerings on a daily basis, most opt to have only 1 altar, but there is no rule in Buddhism to say you can only have 1 altar. The altar however, should be placed in a respectful place. So, not in the bathroom. Or if in the bedroom, you should put a screen up to block it when you are changing, sleeping, etc. Alternatively, you can keep it in a cupboard, and close the doors during such activities. But altars should be dedicated places to the Buddhas, so don't put secular items in the same place, such as on the same shelf, etc. When it comes to praying, it is usually done in front of the altar, as you are invoking the enlightened beings. When you do your prayers there it becomes a powerful place in your home, and provides you with a sacred space to pray and meditate. However, if circumstances are difficult, then of course you can pray elsewhere. For example, when I first set up an altar, I was living in a single room with not much space. I set up an altar on a shelf but was not able to pray in front of it. Once I had made offerings, I would simply sit in another part of the room and do the prayers there. If it is really not convenient, then of course it is permissible to do the prayers elsewhere. It is better to do the prayers, than not do them at all if you can't be in front of your altar. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Kuenzang wangdi asked: What would be my most suitable colour ?
    pastor answered: Dear Kuenzang Wangdi, Thank you for your question. The following calculators may be of interest to you: Chinese Zodiac: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html In relation to which colour if most favourable for you, unfortunately our calculators do not give this information. However, from a Buddhist practice viewpoint, what is more important is the transformation of the mind. Once we transform our minds according to teachings, we are able to overcome any obstacle and create good conditions for our lives. You can learn a very short mind transformation teaching here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/eight-verses-of-thought-transformation.html You can couple this with formal practice. If you are interested, a very good practice to bring energies of increase and generate a long life, merits, wealth and prosperity in your life, is the the practice of Gyenze. You can find information about the practice here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html. I hope this helps. Thanks.

    Naseer asked: Hi My name is Naseer Ahmed 8th dec 1979. Life path 1 Im looking to add to my name slightly... change it too... Naseer Al Ahmed... Would this be more complimentary as far as for the business front... or would it not make any difference
    pastor answered: Hello Naseer, As per your question, your Life Path Number is 1. The Life Path Number according to the system of numerology used on our website is calculated using your date of birth. Therefore, a change in name will not affect your Life Path Number. Some of the other calculators on the same page do however use your name. One of the smaller calculators you may be interested in is the Achievement Number, but again, this only uses your date of birth for the calculation. You can find it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/numerology/numerology-calculator.html You may also be interested in two of our other pages: Chinese Zodiac - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html Thank you for your question. I hope this helps.

    Sandra asked: After making a food offering to the three jewels (which we will eat for lunch etc), should we think of it as a blessing and partake?
    pastor answered: Hello Sandra, When making food offerings to the Three Jewels, which you eat yourself, when you recite the prayer and make the offering, you should visualise that the Buddhas receive your food offering and because you have made an offering, they are very pleased. It also fulfills one of the Refuge commitments, which is to offer the first portion of whatever we eat and drink to the Three Jewels, while remembering their kindness. You can then partake of the meal and consider it a blessing from the Three Jewels. Alternatively, you can set out a plate (which you reserve for this purpose) of food, which you can offer on your altar. Similarly, once the food has been left on your altar for a while, you can later remove it and consume it as a blessing. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Is intovertedness a bad quality? Since Buddha is so altruistic and this is the opposite trait, it must be bad. How do you think one should lessen introverted tendencies?
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Introvertedness is not a bad quality. Altruism and compassion are different from being an introvert or extrovert. Introverts are generally quieter people, less expressive of their emotions, while extroverts are the opposite. Buddhist practice is not about expression of emotion. Rather the altruistic and compassionate teachings are more about how you help other people and sentient beings, physically or emotionally. If the qualities of introverted-ness are stopping you from developing these, then they need to change. But this may not be necessary, depending on the qualities that you are talking about. You can do simple meditations to building up the energy of compassion in your mindstream and you will see that you actions will automatically start to be more compassionate and altruistic. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: How should one behave when negative karma is being purified? How can we know if bad karma is being purified? Do we accumulate positive karma simultaneously when doing purification practices? Many thanks for your response.
    pastor answered: Hello again Sandra, There are two ways in which karma can be purified, the first is through our own efforts alone and the second is through our own effort, combined with a purification practice. Through our own efforts: this means that you transform your mind enough to not react negatively in any situation and only react in a positive manner. For example, you may have the karma to get angry. So you get into situations which makes you angry. If you react normally, then you will get angry again, this will only lead you to create more karma of being angry. But if you make the effort not to get angry in those situations then you do not create or multiply that karma. The original karma you have may lead you to be in those types of situations again, but if you do not get angry then after a while you start to purify that karma. Through your own efforts, combined with a purification practice: as you are working on transforming your mind, you can rely on the practices that help you to purify your karma, such as the practice of Vajrasattva or the 35 Confessional Buddhas. This boosts your ability to purify negative karma, based on the enlightened energies of the Buddhas. This however is only truly effective when combined with the Four Opponent Powers. You can read more about that here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html In general, when karma is being purified then you should remain level-headed and not act out of emotion or habit, but from your understanding of the workings of karma and the Dharma. But actually, this should not only be when karma is being purified. You should act and behave in this way all the time according to the Dharma, then you are, up to a point, always purifying karma. It is one of the reasons that so much emphasis is placed on refraining from negative actions and engaging in positive actions using your body, speech and mind, because these are the three means or 'doors' with which you interact with the world. At our level, we cannot tell if karma is being purified or not, only those who are more highly attained can tell. However, that is one of the reasons the Buddhist texts advise study of and belief in karma. If there is karma, then it can be purified, and the way to do so is transform your mind and invoke upon the enlightened beings. So if you are doing both, you can rest assured that you are in fact purifying your karma. When you purify negative karma, whether just through your own efforts or combined with a purification practice you collect merit, not positive karma. If you simply do a good action, you collect good karma. But if you are practicing the Dharma with the intention of achieving enlightenment, you take refuge, engage in the practice, and dedicate at the end, then you develop merit, not positive karma. If you want to read more about how karma works and how to purify it in more detail, I suggest you read a Lamrim text such as Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which you can order from your local bookstore or get online here (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand).

    Sandra asked: Hello pastors, thank you for your response to my earlier question. Do divination predictions change frequently? Why does that happen?
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. Divinations, compared to astrological predictions, are much more accurate. There are many types of divination, but those based on the practice of enlightened beings are very accurate. Three of the most well-known in Tibetan Buddhism are the divination practices of Manjushri, Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. You can read more about Dorje Shugden's dice divination here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugdens-dice-divination.html Questions that are asked during divinations are much more specific than the types of topics that astrological predictions can help with, therefore are based on very specific types of karma. This means that if you asked a divination question twice, without taking remedial actions in between, then the answer would most likely be the same, given that all the prerequisites have been held by the diviner and the divinations are genuine. However, if a divination is done and then remedial actions recommended, such as various practices or pujas, and these are done to the letter, then if the question is asked again, then the results would differ. This is because when engaging in these practices or pujas, either you generate the merit necessary to overpower the negative effects of the karma, or you purify the negative effects of the karma creating the situation. This however, is generally not done. You wouldn't ask the same question twice or over and over again. The reason for this is because one of the factors that comes into play when seeking divination is faith. This is faith in the fact that the remedial actions recommended will help whatever situation you are facing. Having seen H.E. Tsem Rinpoche do countless divinations for people, I can attest to this. Those who have faith and follow through with the advice, see a great improvement in the situation that led them to ask the divination question in the first place. Those that did not follow the advice either at all or not fully, did not see any improvement. And this makes sense, because they did not purify the effects of the karma enough, or generate enough merit. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    sandra asked: How much importance should we give to astrological predictions or chart readings? Are these readings susceptible to change all the time,i.e, in the context of planetary movements? Can our own effort/actions supercede what is predicted in our birth chart?
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your interesting question. You are absolutely correct about the universal principle of change. According to Buddhist practice, astrological predictions are based upon a fixed point in time. Take for example, your moment of birth, which most astrological readings take as the main point of reference. At that specific moment, there would have been various energies or planetary alignments, etc. Combined together, they are said to give an accurate prediction of what will occur to a person throughout their life. This however, is based on one's birth karma, to be born at that specific point in time and location. This birth karma also provides the driving force behind what will occur in a person's life, if that karma is not changed somehow. Hence, that is why astrological predictions can give very accurate readings on someone's personality, as well as life events. Birth karma provides the main force behind all other karma to come into play. That is why it is given importance in astrology. There are also more advanced methods to take into account planetary and energetical movements to give even more detailed and precise predictions that can even be made down to the month, day or hour of a person's life. In Buddhism, however, we believe that karma can be changed. It can multiply, be purified or exhausted, or the effects of that karma can be overpowered by another karma or spiritual merit. In these cases, the outcome will change. The way in which this happens is varied. It can be as simple as doing some prayers (to generate spiritual merit) or changing your behaviour, environment or location, the way you think, and the ways in which you react in various situations. That is why in Buddhist astrological systems, emphasis is placed on remedial measures to counteract negative outcomes. For example, someone may be born with an angry disposition from an astrological point of view. If this person goes through life acting from this anger, then the predictions based on the time of birth will occur. However, a remedial action can be undertaken, such as the person pracitising Chenrezig, who is the Buddha of compassion, or the person doing some form of charity work. These remedial actions generate compassion in the mind of the person, which counteracts the anger. As this happens and the karma is changed, then the person no longer needs to feels the negative effects of any bad astrological (or more correctly - karmic) situations. There are even some practices that specifically help to counteract negative astrological influences and help you to change things. Such an example is Black Manjushri. Within Tibetan Buddhism, according to your time and date of birth, you also have what is known as a 'Birth Buddha'. This is basically an enlightened being that you have an affinity with in this life. General remedial actions include making images of this particular Buddha or engaging in this Buddha's practice. This combined with a change in how we live - otherwise known as Mind Transformation in the Buddhist context - changes astrological outcomes. However, if we continue living without controlling our actions, words and thoughts, the predictions made using astrological readings will most likely still occur. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
