Dear Followers of Karma Kagyü Calendar,

Tashi Delek!

We are happy to announce a great change in the life of the Karma Kagyü Calendar.

According to His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dordje’s instruction we change to Tsurphu Calendar system. It means the Karma Kagyü Calendar is calculated according to the Tsur system. It makes some difference in calendar calculation but, for instance, the special days will be the same.

The name (Karma Kagyü Calendar) and serving remain the same except for continuous changes—for better and better information to you.

We have used calculation according to Tsur system since beginning of this Tibetan year (Losar). The transition was technically unnoticed, after a lot of work was in the background, but we certainly wanted to inform you of the changes that occurred as a result of the instructions of His Holiness Karmapa.

You can read more about this Tsurphu calendar system on our site:

We hope that the Karma Kagyü Calendar will continue to benefit to you all.

With love

Team KKC
