Eight Zodiac Guardians – Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva

Estimated Reading Time: 3min

Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva (得大勢菩薩) is the designated zodiac guardian for individuals born in the year of the Horse (1966, 1978, 1990, 2002). Revered as one of the eight great bodhisattvas in Buddhism, Mahasthamaprapta is the embodiment of the power of wisdom, with his name directly translating to “he who has obtained the highest strength”.

One of the oldest and most formidable bodhisattvas, Mahasthamaprapta is often depicted in a trinity alongside Amitabha Buddha (zodiac guardian of the Dog and Boar) and Guan Yin (zodiac guardian of the Rat). Representative of the power of wisdom, he is tasked with the important role of leading those born in the year of the Horse on their journeys towards success.
