The Dalai Lama has recently come into the news again, as Tibet struggles for it's independence from China. Why is the Dalai Lama such a great spiritual leader not only to Tibet but to the rest of the world? By running the Dalai Lama's Four Pillars Chinese Zodiac
chart, we might be able to get a better understanding of his personality and why he is perfectly suited to be the Dalai Lama.
Lhamo Dhondup was born on July 6th, 1935 in Takster, Amdo in the northeastern part of Tibet. When he was 2 years old, he was acknowledged as the reincarnation of the Thubten Gyatso, the 13th Dalai Lama. In Tibetan tradition, a Dalai Lama is believed to be the earthly manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the spiritual leader of Tibet and the Bodhisattva of Compassion. A Bodhisattva is believed to be an enlightened being that has delayed their own nirvana and chosen to be reincarnated to help serve the people of the world.
His Holiness then became the 14th Dalai Lama and was renamed Tenzin Gyatso. In examining the Dalai Lama's Four Pillars Chinese Zodiac chart, we can see that the Dalai Lama was born in the year of the Wood Pig
according to Chinese Astrology
. However, this is not the sign that dominates his personality because both his Month and Day Chinese zodiac animal signs are that of the Water Sheep. If you have two or more of the same Chinese Zodiac secondary animal signs, they can dominate your personality more than your primary Chinese Zodiac Year animal sign.
In this case, the Dalai Lama's personality is rule primary by the Water Sheep
. The Sheep represents caring warm-hearted people who do not carry a grudge. They are also some of the most warm and loving people you will ever met. In this case, this fits the Dalai Lama's mantra of non-violence to a tee. His Holiness even threatened to relinquish his title as the Head of State Tibet if the violent protest continue in Tibet. Which shows how strong his commitment to non-violence is. His Holiness won the 1989 Nobel Peace prize for his non-violent protest to liberate Tibet.
The Water Element in the Dalai Lama's Sheep Chinese Zodiac sign shows that he is a very good communicator. His Holiness has spread his message of non-violence to over 60 countries on 6 continents. His message is also spread through the more than 70 books he has written. We here at Online Chinese Astrology wish his Holiness success in his non-violent efforts to free Tibet.
