Buddhist Calendar for 2012 • 2556

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Fri Dec 23, 2011 7:44 pm

I have just uploaded my Calendar for 2012 (Link fixed)

Its not live yet — before I update my web site to link it to my News Page, I would appreciate it if anyone can spot any typos or other errors.

TIA

Bhante,

I gave it a quick once over and it looks good to me. Thank you! Sadhu! :anjali:

The link is wrong - it leads to the 2011 version.

But I found the 2012 version - it looks very good indeed. I think I will use it. Thank you. :anjali:

Hello Bhante,

This is a norther hemisphere calendar, and will not be accurate for those of us living in a different time zone.

January 1st 2012 in the southern hemisphere is Sunday.

Here is the 2012 calendar for those Downunder:

I think you looked at the 2011 version.
Here is the link to the 2012 version - Jan 1st is a sunday.

(I have never heard that there are different calenders for northern and southern hemisphere?? I could be wrong though.)

Hello David2,

Have a look at the current times worldwide. You will see that this moment is on different days/dates depending on where you live.

Sorry Chris (and correct me if I'm wrong) but I fail to see the relevancy of latitude (Southern vs. Northern latitudes) in relation to times and dates...

Ok, so for instance in Honululu and Las Vegas it is still friday, while it is already saturday in most parts of the world.
But I think the friday is in all parts of the world the 23rd and the saturday is in all parts of the world the 24th... So it doesn't change anything with the calendars they use, right?

The time zones are rather a western-eastern issue, but I don't think they have influence on the calendars used.

Sorry all. I was incorrect. It is only if something was being broadcast worldwide at the one time that we would need to be conscious of particular differences in time-zones.

Doh! :embarassed:

Thanks for pointing my misunderstanding out.
