We are pleased to inform you that for the year 2024 (the 2151st Tibetan year) there will be a printed Karma Kagyu Calendar in two formats: wall calendar and pocket calendar. You can find the details here.

What does the wall calendar look like?

The wall calendar is A3 in size and illustrated with 13 beautiful photos, including all the special days and the features of each day.

The calendars have a foreword by His Holiness Karmapa.

The wall calendar runs from 1 January to 31 December 2024.

What does the pocket calendar look like?

This year the pocket calendar is again created under the idea and supervision of His Eminence Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche. And here again you will find a foreword by His Holiness the Karmapa. 

The 12 centimetre high notebook is a very practical size, because it really fits in the pocket, and as well as containing the special days, you can also write in it.

The pocket calendar is very durable, so it will remain beautiful and usable after constant use at the end of the year and beyond. 

But there's one major change from last year's pilot edition: this time we're using spiral binding, but it will be covered. In bookbinding, this is called a hidden spiral binding. What does this mean? You can open it completely flat in your hand, it doesn't fold back, and you can put it on the table open. But you can also put it in your pocket or bag easily, because the spiral won't get stuck in these.

The pocket calendar also has 5 perforated (tear-out) pages at the end for quick note-taking. It also includes a printed bookmark with a quote and an explanation of the pictograms for the special days in the calendar.

The pocket calendar runs from 1 January 2024 to 28 February 2025 (the end of the Tibetan year 2151).
