Discover how your birth date can influence your life according to Tibetan Astrology

Tibetan astrology is a blend of both Chinese and Indian astrological traditions but is uniquely Buddhist as it is based on the Kalachakra Tantra. As such there are many methods that are taught to overcome any negative influences that we may go through in daily life. These methods allow us to purify any negative astrological influences and karma, leading to a happier, smoother life as well as creating the causes for a fortunate rebirth in the future.

According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.

Karma, however, is not set in stone. We can change our circumstances through our own efforts – purification of karma and accumulation of merit. Tibetan astrology, based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future. Tibetan astrology can also predict what will happen to us in this life and our next rebirth based on the time of our birth.

Advice from Tsem Rinpoche on Birth Buddhas

  • CHENREZIG

    Chenresig The energy and properties of Arya Avalokiteshvara, Lokeshwara, Padmapani, Chenrezig and Kuan Yin are just synonyms of a very powerful universal energy called compassion. Compassion in symbolic form is this Buddha Chenrezig and in definitive meaning, it is what we need as the main nourishment to survive on this planet. show more

    For those who are born with Chenrezig as their Birth Buddha, it can be an indication that they may need to give more love to others. It may also be an indication that in their life, they might come across pockets of people and events that will create a lot of anger in themselves or in others that becomes an obstacle to their lives.

    Thus being born with Chenrezig as one’s Birth Buddha indicates the person would benefit greatly if they engaged in practices related to forgiveness, kindness, generosity and especially activities that benefit others.

    The snow mountain whiteness of this supreme Buddha represents the soothing qualities of patience, forbearance and tolerance. Chenrezig’s four arms represent compassion pervading all four cardinal directions of wherever sentient beings abide. One of Chenrezig’s four arms holds a rosary representing effort; another arm holds a lotus representing overcoming adversities and the remaining two centre hands gently clutch onto a wish-fulfilling jewel which is what we become when we embody compassion. We fulfil the wishes of others when we bring them happiness.

    Meditating, doing yogas, and reciting the sacred texts, mantras and rites associated with this supreme emanation of compassion can only soothe our minds and clear obstacles created by negative human emotions. Hence connecting with Chenrezig will quell the angry energy around us, before us, and that which has been generated in the past because without angry energy, our lives instantly become at peace regardless of our station in life.

    You do not need to be of a specific religion in order to invoke upon the energies of this much-needed Buddha especially in our troubled world of today, for his compassion comes in the form of many blessings as long as we trust in the power of compassion. Keeping images and statues or visiting sacred spaces associated with this deity will only serve to enhance our lives, remove obstacles from their roots, and propel us to higher spiritual realisations.

  • VAJRAPANI

    Vajrapani

    Fear, self-loathing, lack of confidence, insecurity, not loving oneself, hiding behind projections, and always feeling that one cannot achieve things is countered by the Birth Buddha Vajrapani.

    When we associate ourselves with rites, rituals, prayers, mantras, yogas and practices that directly connect us with Vajrapani, fearful sights, dangerous or frequent travels, distant faraway places pregnant with life-threatening circumstances and supernatural disturbances can be overcome. show more

    Last but not least, connecting with this powerful energy, like 10 million suns combined into one being, will also help us to overcome the biggest enemy and creator of fear, ignorance.

    His right arm thrust fiercely into the air, holding the symbol of liberation and power over suffering, is highlighting what this Birth Buddha can grant us if we trust in his powers. His left hand, clawed, points with a threatening mudra at the enemies within. The mudra (hand gesture) forestalls sufferings, pain and more problems created by our inner enemies, which in turn creates the enemies on the outside.

    Fangs bared, bloodshot eyes glaring, fiery moustache ablaze and violently gracing his blue-black face, even the most terrifying of inner demons and outer obstacles cannot withstand his wrath. For those born under this Birth Buddha, it is perhaps an indication that in our life, we will face many difficult or problematic situations, wrathful events and even the biggest enemy, the hating of oneself.

    No matter what faith or lack of faith we project ourselves to have, or what religion or lack of denomination we are, it makes no difference to the volcano-like energy embodied within Vajrapani. Engaging in traditional and non-traditional propitiations of Vajrapani will only assist in removing and eradicating the causes of our suffering, obstacles and especially our deep inner issues which we have sometimes hidden from ourselves.

    Those born under this Birth Buddha Vajrapani should consider themselves most fortunate because in the face of his violent yet compassionate power, our non-existent ego will only disintegrate.

  • VAJRASATTVA

    Vajrasattva For those of us who have the supremely efficient Vajrasattva as our Birth Buddha, this might indicate that in our lives we change and shift things very often and easily. We may not go all the way with certain works and endeavours, which is an attitude that may bring us a lot of difficulties. show more

    Why is this Buddha efficient? Because Vajrasattva is a specific emanation that when invoked upon, removes the root causes of our failures: impatience, projections and delusions. Our delusions, projections and impatience are constantly fuelled, without ever being exhausted, by the constant karma that we create. This is a larger source of energy and power than any fossil fuel remaining in the earth.

    While fossil fuel will run out one day, the fuel we generate to ‘power’ these three negative qualities can be washed away by Vajrasattva’s practice. On the one hand, we knowingly and unknowingly create negative karma and circumstances for ourselves and the people around us. Simultaneously, we also reinforce this situation by rejoicing in our negative actions. This is the root fuel and source for the unhappiness in our lives.

    Thus by invoking upon Vajrasattva’s energy, visiting sacred spaces associated with him, reciting mantras, or engaging in offerings, rites, rituals, practices, yogas, meditations or even having an image of him, it will help us to eradicate the root fuel that empowers the dissatisfaction we always experience and create for others through our delusions, lack of effort, giving up on things easily and our worst best friend, projections. Projections are things we believe, see or feel is so, but in actuality, what we see is actually deceptive and not real.

    So those born under the blessings of this Birth Buddha are most fortunate if they invoke upon or associate with Buddha Vajrasattva because once they cut the fuel, the engine of suffering stops.

  • SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA

    Buddha Shakyamuni

    The moment Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later known as Buddha Shakyamuni, issued forth from his sacred mother, tremors heralding the birth of an extraordinary being were felt and heard throughout the earth.

    For nine months, Queen Maya Devi dreamt of an elephant descending from the highest Tushita heavens and entering her womb, foretelling of a single mind that would manifest to change the destiny of all of samsara. show more

    This being who is perfect, with the 60 qualities of speech and 112 immutable physical marks of a superhuman, appeared golden, bright and smiling. He was the answer to every single plague within our existence that has ever been created.

    The moment Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later known as Buddha Shakyamuni, issued forth from his sacred mother, tremors heralding the birth of an extraordinary being were felt and heard throughout the earth. For nine months, Queen Maya Devi dreamt of an elephant descending from the highest Tushita heavens and entering her womb, foretelling of a single mind that would manifest to change the destiny of all of samsara. This being who is perfect, with the 60 qualities of speech and 112 immutable physical marks of a superhuman, appeared golden, bright and smiling. He was the answer to every single plague within our existence that has ever been created.

    Homage to the King of Sages, the antidote to samsara and to the most benevolent and powerful Buddha Shakyamuni.

    If Shakyamuni happens to be your Birth Buddha, you can consider yourself to be the most fortunate to be protected by the fourth universal monarch to appear in this fortunate aeon. All maladies, internal and external, and all sufferings and all manifestations of our inner turmoil can be quelled if we associate ourselves with, pray to, take refuge in and make offerings to this supreme being labelled Shakyamuni. By visiting the four holy places of his birth, his enlightenment, his turning of the Wheel of Dharma and his parinirvana, one will quicken one’s path to the state he has shown us, which is possible. By focusing our minds and physically visiting sacred spaces associated with this most supreme protector of all sentient beings, Shakyamuni Buddha, only good can arise.

    Those of us who are born with Shakyamuni as our Birth Buddha should be inspired to realise he has shown us what we can achieve and we should never belittle ourselves to think it is not possible. Those born under the blessings of this Birth Buddha should never be discouraged and feel that they cannot achieve what they wish to achieve in their lives; they should feel empowered to go all the way.

    Those associated with this supreme Buddha Shakyamuni should offer things pleasing to the five senses such as flowers, incense and water, and especially their efforts and cultivation of themselves as the best person that they can be. Any mantras, rites and rituals done according to tradition or created from one’s personal inspiration, will be more than enough to invoke the blessings of this supreme being.

    Since Shakyamuni has shown all beings within existence the possibility of freedom, when we are associated with him as our Birth Buddha, we should realise we can achieve anything and everything. Always invoke upon the energies of your special Birth Buddha, the Great Sage and universal monarch Shakyamuni Buddha.

  • NAMGYALMA

    Namgyalma

    Those born with this incredible, forceful female energy as their Birth Buddha are blessed to be protected from the six realms of samsara and the three dimensional existences which are represented by her nine eyes.

    Her eight arms hold symbols of the complete end of suffering, removal of obstacles, swiftness in achievements, prolonging of life, achievement of the highest qualities and at the same time, improvement and assistance in our spiritual meditative paths. The practitioner will receive the benefits of what she manifests and what she represents. show more

    Being born under this Birth Buddha may, for some people, represent that at times they may have a very tumultuous life. The incredible energy of this supreme lady Namgyalma can quell such adversities if we place our trust in her.

    To invoke upon her energies by either traditional or non-traditional methods, you do not need to be Buddhist or even anything remotely related. Reciting her sacred words of power (mantra) or relying on one’s personal meditation methods according to one’s own knowledge to propitiate the Buddha Namgyalma will definitely invoke the energy of your Birth Buddha.

    If you are lucky enough to have Namgyalma as your Birth Buddha, keep an image or sacred statue of this effulgent deity and make an effort to be closer to her.

  • TARA

    Tara The person born under the timing ‘ruled’ by the energy of Tara will experience improvements in their endeavours if they form a stronger affinity with Tara. This connection with Tara will help them achieve their goals, lessen obstructions and lead to the overall improvement of their path in life. show more

    It would be especially beneficial for this person to visit temples and places that honour Tara, or are associated with her. Keeping a painting, print or statue of Tara in the place they inhabit the most will constantly energise the environment with her blessings. Any pujas, rituals, meditations, yogas and propitiations to Tara will be especially powerful towards achieving our positive wishes.

    Tara can be relied upon as our main practice or as a subsidiary practice, if combined with other practices. We can invoke upon Tara regardless of whatever spiritual path we are on now. We do not need to be Buddhist to tap into Tara’s blessings, as her blessings override any human projections.

    Tara is associated with the removal of obstacles, 21 potent methods for improving our lives, as well as mental prowess and extraordinary abilities such as clairvoyance, foretelling of the future and safety in travel. She is also swift in the removal of obstacles for business, and excellent for women’s issues and family disharmony. Overall, when we connect with Tara as our Birth Buddha, we are making connections with a powerful ally who will stay close to us until our own Enlightenment.

    Those born under the Birth Buddha of Tara may engage in traditional Tibetan methods, or their own spiritual methods, to invoke upon her multi-faceted blessings daily.

  • MANJUSHRI

    Manjushri

    The person born under the timing ‘ruled’ by the energy of Manjushri will do especially well to make a stronger connection to Manjushri to fulfil life goals, remove obstacles and generally improve one’s well-being.

    It is good for this person to visit chapels or holy sites associated with Manjushri, or to keep an image or statue of Manjushri in the environment they inhabit the most. show more

    Any rites, mantras, yogas and meditations associated with Manjushri will be especially effective for them. Manjushri can be our main practice, or an additional practice if we have a separate, pre-existing main practice already. Our religious orientation, even if we are not Buddhist, will not interfere with Manjushri’s bountiful blessings when we invoke him.

    Manjushri is associated with learning, self-improvement, logic, wisdom, the arts, science, music, contemplation, realisation and penetrative insight. He is thus associated with improving all facets of intelligence, learning and inner growth.

    People associated with this Birth Buddha generally enjoy learning while those who face difficulties in learning, whether academically or life lessons, are encouraged to invoke upon Manjushri’s energies to see things improve for themselves.

  7. Brian Connell on Jun 28, 2019 at 12:57 am

    Interesting, but we each create our own reality, our point of power, is the present moment. To put faith, too much faith in Astrology is to undermine the arising of our own Buddha Nature to come to our aid i.e. the ego/conscious, rational mind. When too much responsibility is placed “outside oneself”, it is instantly dis-empowering. I like the entire site though, and truly feel like Tsem Rinpoche is a brother of mine.

    Your Holiness
    I was born to hindu parents residing in a Buddhist country. According to my parents I was born on the early morning of a Thursday at around 5 am (exact time not known) on 10th of January 1985. I would like to confirm from Your Holiness about my Tibetan birth sign since I am not sure if I am a rat. When I used the mewa calculator in the blog I find that I am a wood rat and that I am being blessed by a mountain dwelling tsen. I would like to know if Your Holiness could help me find out the name of the tsen whom I would like to worship apart from my birth Buddha. I am very depressed about things going on in my life and that I would like to come under the grace of my tsen & my birth Buddha. Please do write back i am awaiting for a word from Your Holiness.
    Thank You.

    • Yee Yin on Jul 17, 2019 at 3:12 pm

      Hello Bikram,
      I am a regular visitor of Tsem Rinpoche’s blog. It seems that there is no specific information about the particular mountain spirit. However, your birth mewa actually advises you to set up a shrine to a Dharma Protector and engage in the practice. The best blessings and protection that we can get is from an enlightened Dharma protector such as Dorje Shugden. Because an enlightened Dharma Protector is a Buddha, he has all-knowing omniscience and able to help us the right way to remove our problems/difficulties in our daily lives and spiritual path. He is very compassionate and selfless, thus we can fully rely on him.

      You can go to this article to learn more about Dorje Shugden practice. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dhaneshwar-bhagawan-dorje-shugden.html

      The best thing about Dorje Shugden is that you don’t have to change your religion in order to get the protection and blessings from Dorje Shugden, you can continue to practice what you are practising and at the same time pray to Dorje Shugden for additional protection and blessings.

      There are many stories about how Dorje Shugden has helped people in Tsem Rinpoche’s blog, you can read about them here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/students-friends.

    • Yee Yin on Apr 28, 2019 at 4:43 pm

      Hi Kunga Nyandak,
      As far as I know, the website does not have fortune reading service. I hope you don’t mind, I would like to share something with you. All of us would love to know who our future partner is and where to find them. But instead of focusing on that, it makes more sense to first develop the good qualities in us. When we have developed good qualities in us, we create the cause to attract the right person into our lives, and when we do meet that special someone, we are ready and are our best to start a life with them.

      You can read more here about “Ingredients for a Successful Relationship” from Tsem Rinpoche’s teaching.

  24. Daniel on Dec 10, 2018 at 9:50 am

    Most honorable Guru

    I have been interested in tibetan astrology for some time, it’s nice to find the site.
    I spent many decades in Babylonian astrology ,which has many holes in it ,and is an imperfect system.

    I was born January 11th of 1970 7 58 p.m.

    My question to you is:” is this system that is on this website pretty standard to other Tibetan astrology subsystems ? if I were to get a reading from an authentic Tibetan astrologer other than yourself would they also give me my birth Buddha would they also give me my birth number or do they have horoscope Wheels like they do in The Vedic astrology?”

    How authentic is this ?…because I was born with a birth Buddha of vajrapani does that really mean that I was a LLITERAL serpent demon in my past life before this one? Or is that metaphorical only?

    thank you
    Om mani pame hung

    • Pastor Niral Patel on Mar 5, 2019 at 10:59 pm

      Dear Daniel,

      Thank you for your very interesting questions. First of all, I’d like to share with you an introductory article about Tibetan astrology, which you can read here (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/introduction-to-tibetan-astrology.html). This may answer your questions, but I will try to elucidate further in this reply.

      In regards to the Mewa system of Tibetan astrology presented here, yes, if you were to go to a Tibetan astrologist, the answers would be the same. However, as you may already know, Tibetan astrology is more complicated than just the Mewa system, which is presented in the article I shared with you above. The horoscope wheels also exists within Tibetan Buddhism, and this is due to the influence of Vedic astrology, which is historically based on the Mesopotamian/Babylonian system but with a couple of major differences. This would be known as the Kar-Tsi system of Tibetan Buddhism.

      In general Tibetan astrology has three distinct influences: Vedic or Indian astrology (known as Kar-tsi or white astrology); Chinese astrology (known as Nag-tsi or black astrology); and the Kalachakra Tantra. As such there are many systems, which can be viewed separately (like on this website we only show the Mewa system), or viewed altogether.

      In regards to being a serpent in your previous life, this is supposed to be taken as literally, but it is not necessarily the case that this was your immediate previous life. Though most certainly, according to the system, it would have been one your closer previous lives. The karma accrued in that lifetime has a major impact in this life. If you are a Buddhist, you will already have a concept of cyclic rebirth, which means that we have actually had countless previous lives, and is intrinsically linked to the law of karma. Therefore, even though it may sound strange to some people, it is not odd that certain systems of astrology predicted what you were in previous lifetimes, and what you will be in your future lifetimes, based on karma at the time of birth. But what we always need to remember is that karma is not static, it is fluid, therefore if we decide to something and change our karma, our fate automatically changes. That is one of the goals of Buddhist practice. In the short term, we transform our lives to have less suffering (this includes our future rebirths), and in the long term we achieve complete enlightenment.

      I hope this answers your questions. Thank you.

  26. Choten Zangmo on Aug 8, 2018 at 12:41 am

    I was born on 17 December 1991. It has been more than three years since i graduated from college. Most of my friends have landed with good jobs but i am struggling with my work. I feel insecure with my current job because it is on contract. I feel that i am not fortunate enough to get a good job like my friends do.
    Most of my friends have got married with beautiful babies and here i am without any man beside me. People keep on asking when i will get married.
    Since i am still on search of proper job i do not feel ready to get married. I do not know what to do with my life. What should i do? Please help.

      Dear Choten Zangmo,

      Thank you for your comment.

      If you have not checked your Mewa number, this is a brief of what your Mewa number suggested:
      Mewa 9: The Mirror of Prosperity
      Born with The Mirror of Prosperity as your birth Mewa, you are typically sensitive and emotional but also an extrovert. You often have a very good life but place a lot of emphasis on external beauty.

      The suggested practice for mewa number 9 in Manjushri. If you do the practice daily, you should be able to work through your current situation.

      Manjushri is the Buddha of Wisdom and you can be assured that His practice will guide you in areas you specifically need. This link will take you to His short daily practice https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/mewa-9-birth-buddha-manjushri.html. You can either recite His short prayer in English OR in Tibetan transliteration. Both are equally effective.

      You should also include Dorje Shugden’s short prayer and mantra after you have completed reciting Manjushri’s prayer and mantra OM AH RA PA TSA NA DHI (108 recitations of the mantra or more). Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri in a Protector form and His role is to fulfill our wishes, grant peace and bestow wisdom. This is the link to Dorje Shugden’s short prayer and mantra https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/a-short-prayer-to-dorje-shugden.html.

      Your feeling of insecurity can be overcome over time if you do the two prayers above daily. It is recommended that you count your blessings daily instead of focusing on what you do not have. When you are focusing on the fact that you are on a contract, your mind will constantly be haunted by this thought. As a result, you will miss opportunities around you that you didn’t see.

      Everyone is unique and different. We are born to walk our own path. Whatever others have that you want may not be good for you and vice versa. In Buddhism, the understanding of karma is very much emphasized. When we accept karma, we will take responsibility for what is happening around us without comparing ourselves with others. We will focus on changing our bad habits to bring about better results in our life. Please take some time to read this blog post on karma https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/discovering-yourself-a-teaching-on-karma-mindstream.html With knowledge, your mind will be expanded and you will see what you have overlooked.

  30. Bhumika Mool on Jun 4, 2018 at 12:40 am

    I am confused which is my Birth Buddha. I think the chinese astrology says it is Manjushri and the tibetan astrology is saying it to be Chenrezig. I am from a hindu family so please elaborate about this kind of practices too. And I am rather confused about my career as well as a certain person these days. You can reply me through my email.. Thanking you😊🙏

    • Pastor Adeline Woon on Jun 17, 2018 at 7:10 am

      Dear Bhumika Mool,

      The concept of Birth Buddha is found in Tibetan Astrology, not in the Chinese one. As your Birth Buddha is Chenresig, you may like to do the following prayers daily at a quiet and clean area of your home. If you have a shrine room, it would be good to do so in there.

      Step 1: Recite the following prayer once
      White in colour, untarnished by faults,
      Amitabha Buddha embellishing the crown of your head,
      You look upon living beings with overwhelming compassion,
      To Chenrezig I humbly bow down.

      Step 2: Recite the following mantra at least 108 times or more
      OM MANI PADME HUNG

      Step 3: Dedication (Recite the following dedication verse once)
      At the conclusion of any meritorious and virtuous activities such as making offering, prayers, cleaning a temple, bathing the image of god, etc., it is essential to dedicate the merits that we have accumulated for the benefit of all sentient beings.

      May this merit accumulated by myself and others beneficially serve all sentient beings and the Buddhadharma and especially may the essential teachings of the unerring Master Tsongkhapa, become clear and enduring.

      If you like to recite a more complete dedication, you may go to https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#daily and scroll to the bottom for Complete Dedication.

      Should you require more assistance, please let us know by replying to our reply to this comment. Alternatively, you may also contact the Kechara’s pastors here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/support-the-kechara-pastors.html

      Good luck and all the best.

    Hi I passed my high school a year ago and I lost a year trying to get into a university . Will I be able to get into a university this year 😫😫 I’m so stressed 😫 pleade help T_T

    • Pastor Shin on Jun 1, 2018 at 1:47 pm

      Hi Shikshya,
      Sorry to hear about your situation. Perhaps you can contact the school/education counsellor in your high school for more information, or find out more from the various universities about admission/selection requirements and tips for higher chances of success.

      Apart from doing all the necessary procedures, you can also seek spiritual help from Protector Dorje Shugden. You can recite his daily prayers and mantra to calm yourself down and request for his divine help: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/a-short-prayer-to-dorje-shugden.html

      All the best and hope to hear good news from you.

    Having read your article on how traditional marriage process works in Tibet, plus Tibetan astrology, I wondered might you know of a match maker?

    My interest in Tibet is to look for a wife under traditional customs of Tibet (polygamy) and I wondered is there a match maker that you may know of? I am interested in women that live in the villages only.

  38. Tsering Dawa on Sep 30, 2017 at 12:03 pm

  52. Stella Cheang on Feb 10, 2017 at 2:10 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the team for sharing here Tibetan Astrology and the calculator for us to check our Mewa and the accompanying “fortune.” As Buddhist, we are taught that karma or the law of cause and effect governs us, hence discouraging superstitious notions. The beauty of Tibetan Astrology is that Buddhism is deeply ingrained, hence, it serves as a unique solution provider to many who might be at a lost when it comes to applying Buddha Dharma to real life.

  53. wan wai meng on Jan 25, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Very nice tool, to have a glimpse of our hidden character and personality.

    Good or bad year we all should keep the dharma in our minds, and strive to practice in all situations and at all times.

  54. Edward Lee on Jan 14, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you very HHTRinpoche.My wife & I are very happy to receive our Horoscrops & Advices for us to follow & pray..Thank you..

  55. Carmen Koo on Jan 6, 2017 at 1:37 pm

    Thank you for yet another interesting feature on the blog that helps us get to know more about ourselves, and find the ways to end our own sufferings through recognising our own weaknesses.

    Astrology, Horoscopes, Zodiac Signs etc, are good tools and guidelines to have to help us identify ourselves better, how to recognise the root of our sufferings because of certain characteristics that may be influenced by various circumstances, and how to fix it to alleviate our own sufferings. Also, how to better work with others by understanding others wholly. Of course, the best is having our guru , who are with us, spends hundreds and thousands of hours to advice, pray, bless, teach, joke, share with us, to change our views and minds, so that we can identify our own attachments and weaknesses and work on ‘fixing’ it, while reecognising how astrology etc contributes in tandem to who and what we are. Of course, nothing is permanent, and we can always change, which is the best thing we can do.

  56. Sock Wan on Jan 4, 2017 at 7:34 pm

    It is very interesting to know the characteristic of the numbers or animals or Buddha we are related to. The descriptions are pretty close to our character. Knowing our ‘fortune’ or personality let us know what kind of precaution we have to take, what are our strength that we can further develop and what are the weakness we have to be aware. If we know the characteristic of the people we are dealing with, we will be able to use the right method to help them. Astrology can be a guide but we are still the master of our life, we have to take control and take charge of it.

  57. TekLee on Dec 28, 2016 at 1:38 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Tibetan Astrology. It is interesting to know what is my birth Mewa and who is my birth Buddha. Through the astrology, we can know when is our good year and bad year. During our bad year, we should do more purification. And of course, in the good year, never forget about Dharma also. In fact, should engage more in Dharma. I will start looking into and study more about Vajrapani from now onwards. Thank you Rinpoche’s advice on my birth Buddha, I will listen to Rinpoche’s advice. _/\_

  58. JP on Dec 26, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    This is really a lot of fun! I’m always curious how accurate various astrologies are. This is the first time I’ve heard of Tibetan astrology. What’s different from other astrologies is that it shows the Buddha we have affinity with. If we engage in the prescribed Buddha’s practice, we can overcome our flaws and change our karma. This is the good news. WE have a choice and the choice is in our hands.

  59. Yeo Kwai Gin on Dec 25, 2016 at 3:15 am

    感恩仁波切分享这篇有趣和众多人喜爱的西藏星占术与米瓦(Mewa)。

    这是一个非常有趣, 准确又简易的方法让我们自己可以很容易的就可以算出自己的出生佛(birth buddha)与米瓦。之前我对金刚萨陀菩萨的心咒~金刚萨陀百字明咒特别容易唱诵和念颂, 而且我的前行也是首选金刚萨陀闭关, 现在经过这西藏星占术计算,我的出生佛是金刚萨陀菩萨, 现在才明白, 原来如此 !

    文章里的米瓦计算也可以让我们看到前世与来世的投生, 但最重要的是里面有教导我们念诵哪心咒可以有效的帮助我们脱离下三道,以及心咒强大的威力。

    希望这文章可以帮助到更多的人 !

  60. Echeah on Dec 25, 2016 at 2:17 am

    I thank Rinpoche and the team for the effort in putting this article out. It is so useful and interesting, definitely an eye-opener. It is good to know, but perhaps we should not let it rule our thoughts and actions too much, especially when we’re supposed to be having a “very bad day” or “very difficult year”, of which I have plenty! Especially in Chinese culture, when a bad year is foretold, maybe a clash of something, then there will be a lot of “pantang” or taboo/restrictions to avoid aggravating the already bad situation. Then we are advised to “lay low”, lol.

    As we learn in Buddhism, karma is changeable and not fixed. Instead of fearing an impending bad year, we understand that the bad year is in itself a purification, and we should engage in further purification practices and collection of merit to avert and maybe lessen the negative impact.

    Whatever the quiz result, I envision that in all cases, we would be advised to do more purification practices, dharma protector practices and we certainly need a lot of that.

  61. Vivian Ong on Dec 24, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on Tibetan Astrology. Thank you Rinpoche for giving the advice on my birth Buddha Vajrasattva. I guess I really need to recite more Vajrasattva mantras as I know that I am impatient at times 😀

    Wonderful indeed now we could check out what is rise ahead of us through the Tibetan astrology .Its is a blend of both Chinese and Indian astrological traditions.. based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future.Its so clearly explain and informative.Its so accurate for me.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Niral and team making it possible for us.

  63. Fong on Dec 23, 2016 at 3:41 pm

    This is a very very interesting article. I used to think articles like this were just for entertainment.

    The good are to encourage to continue our virtues acts and the negatives are to help us be more firm and focused to do more virtuous acts so we can avoid those pitfalls.

    It also helps to explain why we keep coming across certain deities and why we like them without knowing why.

    Great read and a better daily horoscope than most.

  64. Alice Tay on Dec 22, 2016 at 9:57 pm

    This is the first time I hear about Tibetan Astrology. It is really interesting especially we can know something different from other astrology i.e. about our past lives, next life and method of purification. With the method of purification, we still can change our circumstances through our own efforts.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team who made this Tibetan Astrology which is benefiting many others.

  65. Marek on Dec 22, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    Many Thanks – would it be possible in future perhaps for you to be able to provide more in depth star charts/horoscopes? Such as knowing what the indications are for the position of the planets at the time of one’s birth and how that may influence us according to Tibetan Astrology – could be beneficial to all.

  66. Cynthia Lee on Dec 22, 2016 at 6:19 am

    In general, I see astrology to be an indication of what our lives are to be since birth, determined by our previous karmas. The roads in our lives and where it leads are mapped out … it’s still within our control which road to take.

    If we do nothing about it, we are bound by its “predictions”.

    This is why I love this Tibetan Astrology. The very fact it acknowledges that our future can be changed with its given remedies. The remedies are something that works. It’s not like those feng shui remedies which advises us to strategically place a golden tortoise on the table of that sort to improve luck for example.

    Performing different virtuous actions which correspond to our birth Buddha makes plenty sense than placing an object on our office table!

  67. Bradley Kassian on Dec 21, 2016 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Team for putting this together. I had no idea my birth Buddha would be the female Buddha Namgyalma, also known as ‘Ushnisha Vijaya‘ in Sanskrit, is one of the three Long Life deities. It seems very fitting, as I have a great attraction towards the female Buddhas. I will have to set up a small alter for her. I don’t place much faith in astrology as I believe more in Interdependence and karma but it’s nice to see a connection to a particular Buddha. Thank you Rinpoche.

  68. Danny on Dec 21, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    No wonder i like to see buddha shakyamuni form, be it tibetan, indian or chinese so much. My birth buddha is shakyamuni buddha.

  69. Sharon Ong on Dec 20, 2016 at 11:57 pm

    This is pretty spot on and I can see myself going back daily to find out what my day will be like.

    Cool stuff! Thank you to the team who made this possible. Love this!

  70. HelenaC on Dec 20, 2016 at 10:40 pm

    This is really fun and blessed. My birth Buddha is Vajrapani and my Mewa is The Mirror of Ocean Medicine.
    its blessed to know my birth Buddha, the infinity between Vajrapani and me. After knowing my Mewa, I would wanna transform to be a better me. Very good guide. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. This is very cool hehe…

  71. Yee Mun (KISG) on Dec 20, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us on Tibetan Astrology.

    This is my first time heard of Tibetan Astrology. Astrology is something really interesting. Many people would like to use astrology to find out more about themself and also to predict the futures.

    Tibetan Astrology is special cos it is based on Buddhism. We can find out about our past life and who we will be in the futures. But if we would like to change our futures, the Tibetan Astrology also share with us the methods to do so.

    Common for all astrology that they will have yearly and daily predictions.

    Astrology is just a guide for us. Whether we are encountering a good year good day or bad year bad day, we still need to do our practice, engage in virtuous activities to benefit others and to alleviate obstacles. We need lots of merit for us to continue with our spiritual path till we achieve enlightenment.

  72. Lum Kok Luen on Dec 20, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    Very unique and cool advise.
    I think the key points are purification of our negative karma always and be very mindful with our body, speech and mind.
    Do good always and have strong Guru devotion.
    Generate as much merits as possible to be able to reborn as human and continue Dharma practice in future life.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche.

    Lum Kok Luen

  73. Anne Ong on Dec 20, 2016 at 9:00 pm

    This Tibetan astrology is really cool and interesting! I really love to check out what’s in store about my future,luck,health,karma,relationship and so on. My Mewa is 3. Birth Buddha is Vajrasattva. Thank you rinpoche and blog team for creating this very interesting Tibetan astrology calculator.

  74. shane Jayasuriya on Dec 20, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    I believe that we born according to our karma and can know and see from our present life what we have done in past lives…Good or bad… But nothing is permanent.. present thoughts and actions can change karma bring to us.. its nice to check our birth chart.. if its say something to good to us we feel happy .. if its show this year or this day is very bad that make us unhappy and scared.. it will stay in our mind whole that year as very bad year for us.. that thought in our mind will attract all negative things to us..mind will try to find that year, as bad year in every situation .. i think its nature of our mind.. For me there is no bad day or bad year when I am with Dorje Shugden and pray to Dorje Shugden.. what ever i read what ever see in horoscope not effect my mind when i know Dorje shugden will always take care me.. Power of the Dorje shugden practice and blessing is so powerfu and can feel it._/\_ _/\_ _/\_

    There are so many sacred mountains in the world. Each of the sacred mountains have their own legends or stories behind them. Mount Kailash is the holiest place in the world viewed by different faiths .
    Some respect these mountain peaks so much that it is forbidden to climb them.For others, climbing the mountain is arduous and a form of purification. So they will climb it as a pilgrimage.Thank you for this nice write up.

    There are other places in the world where people reported sightings of tall and hairy human-like creatures. In the Himalayan region, this type of creature is called Yeti. In China, it is called Yeren (wild man). In some Buddhist scriptures, there are also accounts on Yeti.

    I think the bigfoot must be real, or there will not be sightings of creatures like this reported in different places in the world. Sometimes, some creatures don’t like to be disturbed or disturb others, therefore they are hard to be sighted. We have to be opened minded to other beings and be respectful to them so we can live in harmony.

    Voodoo and the Tibetan Leadership

    The word Voodoo is a term used to cover many religious practices, stemming from West Africa. The original religion still has millions of adherents in countries such as Benin, Togo, Ghana and Nigeria, especially among the Fon, Ewe, Yoruba and Kongo peoples. During the 17th and 18th centuries as European colonialists enslaved West Africans and had them forcefully shipped off to the Americas, they took with them their indigenous faith.

    The Chinese Buddhist Billionaire Who Wants to Fix Your Brain

    Have you ever thought about why it is that people who have EVERYTHING are not happy? Probably because having everything in the world doesn’t actually bring happiness, but only leads to an extremely depressed, empty and bitter life because happiness is from the inside. Therefore it is very refreshing to read what Mr Chen has to say.

    Four Sacred Sites of Vajra Yogini in Nepal

    Today, there are five main Vajra Yogini power places in Nepal and, including Sankhu, they are Pharping, Patan, Bidjeswori and Guhyeshwari. The first four accept visitors from all over the world, while Guhyeshwari remains the only Vajra Yogini sacred power place that does not permit foreign visitors.

    Dorje Shugden Arrives in a Nepali School | नेपाली विद्यालयमा दोर्जे शुग्देनको प्रवेश।

    When visiting the Bhagawan Dorje Shugden Chapel in Chabahil and the sacred Boudhanath Stupa, both in Kathmandu, Megnath just had to share Dorje Shugden with as many people as he could. Even back in his home town, Megnath wanted his friends, family and all the townsfolk to be blessed by Bhagawan Dorje Shugden. This included the local school, right next door to his family home. Just take a look below and see how he shared the sacred practice with many others. He is the type of person who, when he finds something good, he really wants to share it with others. Megnath is a kind, gentle and sincere person.

    Read and rejoice in Megnath’s sharing of Dorje Shugden which will greatly benefit his people: http://bit.ly/DSinNepaliSchool

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the origin of Namkar Barzin, how he became one of the entourage of Dorje Shugden. From this story, we also learned that a high lama has the ability to subdue an unenlightened being and bind it by oaths to help to protect Dharma and Dharma practitioner.

    Since this is the case, there must be a high lama who can subdue Dorje Shugden and bind him by oaths so he does not harm people. Why is that until today, no one manages to subdue Dorje Shugden? The only explanation is Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being, therefore he cannot be subdued. We can safely rely on Dorje Shugden to help us to remove our obstacles in life and provide us a conducive environment to practice Dharma.

    There are many great men in India that we are not so familiar with, Mr. Rabindranath Tagore is one of them. He understood how important education to grow good leaders for the country. He also knew that report card is not everything but it is more important to educate the children about creativity and responsibility. Mr Rabindranath Tagore was very selfish, he believed strongly in his passion and he did everything he could to materialise his idea. He had a great care and passion for humanity, fame to him was not important at all.

    Alexandra David-Néel was a woman with the “wind beneath her feet”. She was a Buddhist, Orientalist and writer born in France and dedicated her whole life to studying Asian culture and religion, and sharing it with the Western world. In fact, most of her books focus on practices within Tibetan Buddhism. As a Western woman, her dangerous travel to Lhasa, Tibet, which at the time was closed to foreigners, created worldwide renown for her. Here is a short overview of her life and travels:

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

The Unknown

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

    She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

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