There will be a lunar eclipse 4 April, 2015 over the Pacific. This can be seen before dawn in the Western US and Saturday evening in Asia.

Merit/demerit is multiplied 10,000 times.

That above one is very good.

Please be careful with the calendars on Google Play. At least one very nice calendar I have used on Android is also full of practice texts for a particular demon.

The one he just linked as well as the Drukpa one I linked before that are both fine, however.
Wouldn't it be best to resolve to be done with business and distraction?
Although you serve your superiors, they will never be pleased.
Although you care for your subordinates, they will never be satisfied.
Although you consider the wishes of others with affection, they will never give you a thought.
Think about it, make a definite choice.

Chokhor Duchen 2015 - the 4th day of the 6th month of the Tibetan Buddhist calendar, the First Turning of the wheel of Shakyamuni Buddha begins at sunrise 5:12 am in Bodhgaya on 20 July (11:42 pm GMT 19 July) - just a few minutes from now (I'm posting at 7:40 pm on 19 July, 2015).

Happy Chokhor Duchen!
