Chinese 18th, M-T-K 18th. Ox, Khen, White 6. Longchenpa's Anniversary. Note that the Phukluk calendar omits the 17th day this month, whereas Tsurluk omits the 18th. Rigpa omits the 17th. So, on the common Tsurluk calendar, tomorrow is Longchenpa's anniversary, but we're sticking with today. Anyway... the countdown begins. We have two weeks to Losar, and all sorts of arrangements to make. Today is a good day to begin making those arrangements. In addition to Losar, the month of February also gives us Chotrul Duchen on the 28th. Quite possibly the best day to get anything done this month is February 20th, so if you are one of those people who stay home from Losar waiting for an auspicious day to go out, stay home from Sunday the 14th until Saturday the 20th.
