Happy Year of the Pig from all of us at Siddhartha’s Intent and Khyentse Foundation! 

To celebrate the Year of the Pig, Khyentse Foundation and Siddhartha’s Intent jointly offer a beautifully designed calendar to inspire your practice throughout the year, with the auspicious dates of the Khyentse Masters Lineage specially marked.

May the year of the Earth Pig bring joy and countless auspicious activities. 

Below please find the calendar offered in 12 languages. (Please note, files are large so the PDFs may be slow to load.)

Step-by-step printing instructions available here.

A Note on Dates: You’ll notice that in the first two months of this year, two of the auspicious dates are repeated on the calendar.In some years, including this year, the lunar calendar repeats a month to align with the solar calendar. As a result, this year there are 13 months in the lunar calendar, with the first month being repeated. This means there are two Chötrul Düchens and two Anniversaries of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo in 2019.
