A man should not judge a man, for he harms himself very quickly, that man who judges a man. Only I or someone like me can assess a man.

Hi WIll! Is this an annual observation?

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

Yes; but it is based on the lunar calendar, so in 2011 the dates will not be exactly the same as this year.
