Tulku Yeshi meditating on Mt. Pilchuck


Ven. Tulku Yeshi Gyatso Rinpoche, at the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism, is currently available to perform Tibetan astrological readings and divination for those who are interested and believe in Tibetan Buddhism and karma. The Tibetan astrological system comes from the teachings of the Lord Buddha and has been practiced for centuries. Tulku Yeshi Gyatso has studied Tibetan astrology and divination from Lama Nomka Rinpoche and Lama Sonam at the Tashi Kyi Monastery in Amdo, Tibet. He has been doing astrological readings, including the Ling Gesar divination, for Tibetans and Westerners for 12 years. Kyabje Trulsig Rinpoche as the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyalstab Thondo Rinpoche recognized Tulku Yeshi Gyatso. He writes extensively and has published 8 books. He is currently on sabbatical from his monastery, Thashu Monastery in Tibet.

He has had the privilege of receiving extensive tantric empowerments and he has taken teachings and transmissions on both sutra and tantra from twenty-five masters of various Tibetan Buddhist sects including H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. Lamo Yongzin, H.H. Sakya Trizin, H.H. Karmapa, H.H. Jigdal Dagchen, H.E. Trulshig Rinpoche, H.E. Jadral Rinpoche, H.E. Ayang Rinpoche, H.E. Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

He has taught Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan culture to many people and his students are in Tibet, China, India, Nepal, America, England, Holland, Japan, and Taiwan.

According to the Tibetan astrological tradition, which is a combination of native Tibetan, Indian, and Chinese astrology, personal astrological readings can be performed annually. These readings give more general recommendations for practice not detailed specifics about daily life. For couples planning a future together, their astrological charts can be read and matched. For those who are in business, readings can provide them with guidance to make the right decisions to succeed and prosper. Those who are planning to move into a new house can the consult astrological readings for the best time to move in. The readings can provide instructions for those who are ill and suffer physically, to perform the appropriate healing prayers and rituals. The astrological readings can also guide the surviving family and friends of the deceased to engage in activities that will be beneficial to the deceased in the next and future lives.
