The Tibetan Almanac allows you to make personal predictions for every day of the year. Based on ancient teachings preserved and used in Tibet for over 1,200 years, the preparation of a personal reading has traditionally only been open to those with a long and specialized training. Using the charts and symbolism within the traditional paintings in the book the almanac can be used to seek answers in all areas of everyday life, from career and relationships to spiritual development. It will also allow you to interpret portents - significant signs - and to gain quick counsel using the authentic Tibetan coin cast on to the Wheel of Life.

Kalacakra and the Tibetan Calender describes the contents of current Tibetan almanacs, from basic mathmatics to symbolic and historical information. Essential for understanding the Kalacakra Tantra's first chapter, this book describes the origin of the calendrical systems in this Tantra and translates and elucidates the relevant sections from its famous commentary, the Vimalaprabha. The main calenders in use in Tibet today have remained unchanged since the 15th century, when lamas in several different traditions tried to make sense of the calculation systems they had inherited from India, and to adjust them to remove increasingly obvious errors. This book analyzes the main systems that survive today, assesing their accuracy and comparing them with the methods described in the original Tantra.
