Calendar of Buddhist Holidays

Many seem to have the impression that a good Buddhist sits in meditation all day, indifferent to the comings and goings of the world.  It's true that we often don't know what day it is, but it's only because we don't have a good calendar, not 'cause we don't care.  Enter DM's calendar of Buddhist holidays.  To many of us, these holidays are an important part of our spiritual practice and being on the lunar calendar makes them a little tricky to track.  Thankfully our cousin center, Rashi Gempil Ling, releases a printed calendar every year to help.  They've been kind enough to send us those important dates so now can stopping looking at the moon and guessing.
