  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

BPL commentary: For Mula nativities, the condition of limitless Professor Ketu considerably affects the outcome. Spirit guides, astral beings, and inner listening may be especially influential.

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

In the space of one relatively brief Earthly incarnation, Chokyi Gyamtso Trungpa produced an amazing amount of literary translation, scriptural exegesis, and doctrinal reformulation.

The Vidyadhara gave over five thousand talks during conferences, seminars, and art gallery openings - to name just a few of his speaking venues. ,He participated in countless focused conversations and performances. A capable executive, he established at least 100 meditation centers, and engaged successfully with Western students of the historically Eastern philosophies.

His mission was to liberate the Vajrayana traditions of Tibet from the great weight of cultural accrual, so that the teachings might not die even though the Chinese Army was aggressively destroying the monastic libraries and shrines that had held these dharma (reality) teachings for centuries.

Learning university English with remarkable alacrity, Trungpa became a hyper-productive translator-interpreter of the Vajrayana Tibetan-language literary canon. He chose collocative phrases and invented metaphors to build a bridge between the often opaque, scholastic, often extremely terse Tibetan prosody on the original side to the modern, superficial, materially denotative English on the other side. It looked impossible but he had his mission and he did it.

Prolific Pioneer Translator-Interpreter

As commentators often note, Trungpa's supervisory guidance to his diligent translation committees has generated an inventory of translation-tables that are habitually applied to rendering of Vajrayana short-hand sayings into modern English. These standard English phrases are evident in usage of most dedicated Buddhist bridge translator-interpreters working today. In addition to talks, photographs, parties, and paintings, Trungpa was a productive individual writer and many of his titles are still top sellers in the philosophy category.

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble, all that is just and pure, all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable - fill all your thoughts with these things."
