Eight Zodiac Guardians – Akasagarbha Bodhisattva

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins 

Akasagarbha Bodhisattva (虛空藏菩薩) is the designated zodiac guardian for those born in the year of the Ox (1961, 1973, 1985, 1997), and the Tiger (1962, 1974, 1986, 1998). Regarded as one of the eight great bodhisattvas, his name can be translated to “boundless space treasury” — a reference to his compassion and infinitely vast wisdom.

Described in Buddhist sutras alongside numerous historical accounts, Akasagarbha is a benevolent deity with wisdom as boundless as space itself. According to religious sutras, Akasagarbha bestows his followers with the Six Perfections, presenting values central to our pursuit of success:

  1. Generosity
  2. Morality
  3. Patience
  4. Diligence
  5. Concentration
  6. Wisdom

Those born in the years of the Ox and the Tiger share a strong affinity with Akasagarbha Bodhisattva. As we recall the legend of the great zodiac race, we are reminded of the actions displayed by the Ox and the Tiger. Despite facing various setbacks at the final length of the race, the Ox and the Tiger demonstrated traits of diligence, industriousness, endurance and resolution.

The wise and determined values characterised by the Ox and the Tiger marks their triumphs in reaching the end of the zodiac race, and stands as an apt reflection of the importance of these values in our own race towards our aspirations and success.
