Buddha and Animals

Buddha and Animals

Rat

The Rat was the first animal to respond to the Buddha, and that is a clue to his personality.

Don't think of it as the creature we dislike. The Rat in the Chinese calendar has ingenuity, intelligence, independence and is something of a magician. Rats like to win. If you're a Rat, you know how to get what you want. Even as a child you would feign a better reason to escape homework as You're inventive and original.

You'll be very friendly and generous to your friends and those you love, but your enemies should steer clear! A complicated person with quick, nervous energy, you worry about tomorrow and push yourself to your limits, yet you are quick to criticize others. You need time to be yourself, and to be on your own.

Rats may be the first to jump a sinking ship but, for the practical rat, it does make sense to avoid going down with someone else. Survival is the keyword for you. You will join the race and try to overtake as many as possible. You will not be disappointed to see some ahead of you as you know the rules of the game. Those who call it rat race are either defeatists or wish to romanticize their escapism.

Your smallness (whether the size or the stature) can easily lead a bigger rival to underestimate you, and you are clever enough seize the opportunity to destroy a powerful enemy.

Ox
Legend has it that Lao-Tse, the great Chinese philosopher, rode astride an Ox on his journey to the mountains to seek immortality. If you were born in the Year of the Ox, you are stoical and patient, can endure great hardships and will never give up. You love to toil. Work is something you take pride in and you just get on with the job without fuss, doing the best you can. It is quite possible that friends consider you a workaholic and your spouse may accuse you of being married to your profession. But you don' t care.

Lao-Tse, the great Chinese philosopher rode a bull when he took off for mountains seeking immortality. In India Shiva rides a bull called Nandi who also is the gate keeper of Shiva and Parvati. Rajahs and ministers often have someone to be a barrier between them and the public. This requires a stoical and patient personality. If you are born in the year of Bull, you must already be aware that you can endure hardships. If you decide to pursue an object or objective or red rag, for that matter, you will never give up. You love hardwork. Your friends may consider you a workoholic and the wife may treat your job as your mistress but you will continue working long hours.

You are don' t get worked up easily and seem peace loving until provoked too far, but then, watch out! The might of an enraged Ox is not to be trifled with. You save money rather than spend it, and are resolutely ambitious.

If you were born in the Year of the Ox, you will probably be good friends with those born in the Years of the Rat, Rabbit, Dragon (especially in business), Rooster and Dog, but, in fact, the Ox will get on well with most people.

1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 are the years of Ox*.

Tiger

You are the kind of person who will never betray anyone. You despise lies and cheats.
You can be a very satisfying partner in bed.

Dragon

As the look of the Dragon shows, you are Powerful, courageous, determined, enthusiastic and always lucky. For the persons born in the Year of the Dragon, nothing is impossible. Nothing is beyond you. An obstacle is always a challenge that you will surmount. You are not the type who will accept 'no' quitely. You will fight for your rightful place and will get it even if it takes you years.

Must say that you're not easy to live with. You can be cranky and demanding, and upset others with your blunt way of speaking. On the plus side, you're scrupulously honest and compensate with your genuine charm.

The Dragon in Chinese mythology was a creature of high mountains or underground caves, breathing flames and ready for combat. The Dragon is a symbol of deep desire, of wisdom and of luck, and has often been used to ward off evil spirits.

You always think long term and patiently bide for the right results. You can struggle for years on projects you believe in. Your enthusiasm doesn't reduce if you believe in your goal. You are an achiever.

Snake

If you were born in the Year of the Snake, you have a charismatic personality, poise and elegance. You almost certainly love reading and learning, enjoy deep conversations, dislike arguments unless they are abstract and philosophical, and may have a telepathic intuition bordering on clairvoyance.

You are the real multi-personality. Symbolically, the Snake was the instrument of temptation in the Garden of Eden and you continue to have the same ability to entice, to tempt, to seduce. At the same time you are spiritual in outlook. No wonder the snake biting his own tail is considered a symbol of eternity. Even the naga (snake) on Lord Shiva's neck represent the endless cycle of birth and regeneration. It figures in all cultures.

In Chinese mythology, the first human being emerged from the mouth of the Snake, Nu-Wa. He was the ancestor of the Emperors of China.

You don't like making any more effort than you absolutely have to, but when you decide on a course of action, nothing can stop you. You are the original believer in nursing grudges and avenging wrongs done to you. But, a sincere apology goes a long way in cooling you down and the Snake forgives his enemies when they were down, out and apologetic.

If you were born in the Year of the Snake you will get on well with most people, especially those born in the Years of the Dragon and Rooster, but there may be difficulties with those born in the Year of the Tiger.

1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013 are the years of Snake*.

Horse

The mythical Centaur, half-horse and half-man, symbolizes the bond between man and horse, and if you were born in the Year of the Horse you are bound to be popular and you will always be liked.

You are known for your repartee and quick retorts without offending anyone. You are always a welcome guest at parties and being sociable, you do horse around. However, deep inside
you're a private person and do not easily share your inner thoughts and feelings with others. Above everything, you are proud and independent.

Horse, even otherwise, represents strength. This strength that you have is different from the regular animal strength. This comes from knowing your inner strength, patience and power. There is a discipline to your strength.

Galloping horses are considered a very auspcious symbol if your focus is on fame and glory.

Sheep
If you were born in the Year of the Sheep (Goat, Ram) you would be more like those bohemian painters and poets whose world is full of creative activities and philosophical thoughts. You may take up a cause that doesn't interest others but touches you somewhere, and spend years working for it. You live in your dream world. Working for money, business, investments and balance sheets do not interest you. You consider them 'Mundane` . Money is essential and you too welcome it, but you will prefer if it `just arrived` effortlessly.

Any activity that you know will help only to make money, seems so boring to you that you prefer to go without money rather than spend a lifetime doing something you dislike.

Often, you are fortunate to have a rich aunt or some inheritance to sustain you as you write poems or paint.
A person born under this sign loves attention. You dislike it if people insist on trying to steal your thunder. Not very happily but you may take a backseat to keep things pleasant.

Rooster

If you were born under the sign of the graceful Rooster (Cock), you will know the hypnotic effect you have on other people. Heads turn when you walk into a room, because you have a magnetic charisma and you can carry yourself well. You always pay a little extra attention to what you are wearing and how you are dressed. The attention you get because of your looks and personality is enough reward for the hours you might have spent locating the branded pair of jeans.

You love looking your best but you have a charm that goes beyond exteriors.You are an attractive personality.

You stand up for your rights, and protect your own space like a lion. You never depend on anybody, but you will go out of your way to help others provided they don't intrude on your privacy.
