The TIBETAN ASTROLOGY NETWORK
is a platform for the presentation of information
on Tibetan Astrology and related subjects. It adopts the view that
Tibetan astrology can be valuably understood through both its traditional
role within Tibetan Buddhist culture, as well as its contribution towards
a progressive Transpersonal Psychological approach to astrological theory
and practice. The unique conceptual frameworks of Tibetan Elemental
Astrology ('byung-rtsis) and Kalacakra Astrology (sKar-rtsis),
are underpinned by the rich spiritual psychology of the Indo-Tibetan Tantric
Buddhist world view.
On this site you can find information on the many
topics of traditional Tibetan Astrology backed by original translations
from the source texts of Tibetan Astrology and many years communicating
and working with Tibetan astrologers. Previously the only way to
access this knowledge was to attend one of Kim or Tsering's semainars.
Hopefully it will provide those new to Tibetan astrology with a good start,
and much new material and many interesting comparisons for those well versed
in the area.
|Traditional Tibetan Astrology originates within two distinct systems, that of the cycles of Animals and Elements known as Elemental Astrology or 'byung rtsis (pron. Jung Tsee), and that from the Highest Yoga Tantra of Kalachakra, Kalachakra Astrology, or sKar-rtsis (pron. Kar Tsee). Kar Tsee also includes astrological calculations and interpretations from Yangchar (Sivasvarodhaya tantra). Although influenced by early Bon and Chinese astrology, the elemental approach took a unique course of development within Tibet. The Kar Tsee approach to astrology is based upon the calculation of the signs, constellations and planets and their interelationships. In the Kalacakra Tantra as a whole, the subject matter is usually divided into three Wheels, or phases, known as the External, Internal and Alternative Wheels. The External wheel is the External Cosmos, with the cycles of the planets, constellations and stars, and this includes a system of astronomy and astrology. The Internal wheel is the internal Cosmos of chakras, channels and energies within the body, and their relation to the cycles of the External Cosmos. This section contains a basis for understanding how the planets effect us through the mechanism of the subtle body. The Alternative wheel is the yogic techniques for purifying and transforming the inner and outer to release our innate awareness and capacities. These are all depicted within the Kalacakra Mandala.|
Kim Lai has over 25 years experience practicing and teaching astrological sciences and since 1995 has focused his work on the modernisation of Tibetan Astrology, inspired by the Buddhist paths of rig pe ney chu and the Kalacakra Tantra. Traditional approaches can also be employed for those seeking information from this perspective. Here you may also find information on qualified traditional Tibetan astrologers who have completed the 6 years training in the these sciences.
