Buddhist Calendar

Postby Alobha » Tue Feb 14, 2012 10:10 pm

Everyone who still misses a calendar or would like a fancy Buddhist one: The Forest-Sangha Calendar contains verses from the dhammapada and is useful for observing uposatha days.

I really like this month's verse:

As rain cannot penetrate
a well-made roof,
so the passions cannot enter a well-trained heart.
Dhp. v.14

Best wishes,
Alobha :buddha1:

Thanks Alobha,

Bhikkhu Pesala also produces a calendar, available here.
kind regards,

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
