Losar the Year of the Ox

The Year of the Ox

There are various legends that explain how this came about. One has it that twelve animals came to visit the Buddha when he asked for visitors. As a reward, the Buddha named the years after each animal as they came before him. The Chinese believe that people take on the special qualities of the animal of their birth year.

The Full moon on 27th February brings a time of change, a collapse of the old order of outdated rituals and thinking and a new higher level of integrity will arise. This is the age of the “Power of the people” as we move forward and embrace this forward way of thinking into the age of science and technology as His Holiness Dalai Lama has been telling us for some time.
