2024 Auspicious Dates Calendar

To celebrate the Year of the Wood Dragon, Khyentse Foundation is pleased to present our sixth annual calendar to encourage you in your practice throughout the year. In addition to the evocative illustration by The Bardo Café, the calendar features the auspicious dates of the Khyentse lineage masters and dates related to the Buddha Shakyamuni.

Suggestive of the imagery in the excerpt from Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche’s “Invocation,” the illustration was created using a combination of AI and design tools. The Bardo Café’s stated aim is to offer core Buddhist teachings on mindfulness and awareness in a secular, fun, and inclusive way through art, music, poetry, and other creative avenues. Their goal is to inspire young minds to develop a deeper sense of awareness, purpose, and meaning in life. A collection of art, poetry, and stories can be found on their Instagram page.

This year’s calendar is offered in 28 languages (29 versions): Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Maltese, modern Mongolian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Tibetan, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese. Many thanks to all the translators and volunteers for their efforts in preparing the calendar!
