Happy Losar!

21 February 2023

To celebrate the Year of the Water Rabbit, Khyentse Foundation and Siddhartha’s Intent present our fifth annual calendar to encourage you in your practice throughout the year. As well as the meaningful illustration by Rigzin Wangmo, the calendar features the auspicious dates of the Khyentse lineage masters and other significant dates.

The illustration was selected among submissions sent in by more than 85 professional and amateur artists, designers, and illustrators worldwide in an Open Call for Artwork on the theme “Homage to the Buddha.” Siddhartha’s Intent and Khyentse Foundation are deeply grateful for all the submissions.

Based on this year’s theme, Rigzin Wangmo’s digital design depicts the outer, inner, and secret buddhas. The outer buddha is represented by the hand gestures: abhaya mudra—the gesture of fearlessness, and varada mudra—the gesture of giving or compassion. “I think this is what people need right now,” the artist explains. The inner buddha is conveyed by the objects swirling out continuously from the image in a clockwise direction, signifying that all phenomena are the Buddha’s manifestation, as well as the Buddha’s everlasting blessings. The secret buddha is portrayed through the painting’s luminosity.

Starting with 12 languages in 2019, the calendar this year is offered in 29 languages (30 versions) through the collaboration of a truly international all-volunteer sangha.
