It can be confusing working out the Tsog lunar dates. For convenience, we’ve mapped them out for 2019. What is Tsog offering?
The very highest meaning of tsog is to join method and wisdom. The real meaning of experiencing tsog is the transcendental wisdom, non dual great bliss – the wisdom of emptiness, the non-duality of that, and uniting these two. That is the very essence of tsog.
NOTE: A reader pointed out a discrepancy between Lunar 10th by official calendar and the dates posted on temple sites. Please be guided by your own tradition on this as there may be an astrological reason for the variance. Our calendar is mapped to the official lunar calendars. Please especially check January 15 vs 16 and March 30 vs 31 as these seem to disagree in some calendars, including the 2019 Drukpa Calendar.
The Year of the Earth Pig
The Pig (豬) is the twelfth of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. In the Japanese zodiac and the Tibetan zodiac, the Pig is replaced by the boar.
It can be fun to check out your horososcope based on lunar years. We won't include any predictions here.
Lunar New Year — Losar in Tibetan Buddhism — falls on February 5th 2019. This is a day to celebrate with family and friends and enjoy festivals, fireworks and other events.
Traditionally, the first meal of the new year is vegetarian.
Each month there are important dates for Buddhists. Depending on your tradition, they may be on different days of the year. We've tried to highlight most of the important ones from multiple schools.
Important Puja days for Vajrayana Buddhism are also indicated, notably for Green Tara, Medicine Buddha, Guru Rinpoche, and other Puja days.
