☸ This 10th day of the second month, Guru Rinpoche took ordination from Buddha's disciple Ananda (whose name means ‘Extreme Happiness’). Guru Rinpoche showed unparalleled understanding and mastery of both sutra and mantra, and became known as ‘Guru Shakya Sengé’, ‘Lion of the Shakyas ‘, and as ‘Guru Loden Choksé’, ‘Wise seeker of the Sublime’.
☆~☽☼☾~☆ From the astrological point of view, Spirit Sun is exalted in
Aries, and today makes a helpful trine to the sensitive Moon in loyal
& joyful Leo, the sign of the loving Lion.
This is a fiery
combination of ‘the lights’, with optimum ‘yang’ energy; Sun and Moon
are dynamic together, as they accent the heart connection a Spiritual
Warrior has to the Guru or teacher, source of all illumination.
It is also a great time to do what is good for oneself, to muster
courage and conquer self-delusion with positive antidotes, as the desire
to accomplish is greatly heightened.
The Buddha said
"Conquer the angry person by love.
Conquer the ill-natured person by goodness.
Conquer the miser with generosity.
Conquer the liar with truth.
If one should conquer only themself, theirs indeed is the greatest victory."
