Today is Chinese New Year! The Lunar New Year. So I thought I’d mention the date of the next Lunar Bodhi Day.
The Lunar Bodhi day for 2019 is January 2, 2020. That is, the 8th day of the 12th New Moon of the lunar year that comprises most of 2019, which begins today, February 5, 2019.
As it will be every year, the standardized “secular” Bodhi Day 2019, 2020, 2021 … is December, 8. That is, the 8th Day of the 12th calendar month – close enough to the 8th day of the 12th moon of the lunar year.
Here are a couple other blogs explaining the secular and lunar Bodhi Days:
I'm just a pair of typing hands for The Eternal Fishnu, the Buddha of the Devonian, the ith manifestation of Vishnu, and The Rubber Ducky Buddha of Joliet. My day job as a Business Intelligence Consultant is about modeling worlds. It is a wonderful Zen practice, which is guided by these two Teachers.
