2006 Dharma Diary Engagement Calendar by Pomegranate Communications
More than 2,500 years ago, the Buddha taught a way to transcend life’s inevitable suffering and live in profound peace. Designed to bring these teachings into our daily lives in a practical, universal way, the Dharma Diary is a unique calendar full of inspiring full-color images, from traditional and contemporary thangka paintings and other original artwork to photographs from the Tibetan Plateau; excerpts from the Buddhist classic the Dhammapada; and contemporary writings by Lama Yeshe Losal, Lama Surya Das, Stephen Batchelor, Martin Aylward, and others. Included are concise essays on Buddhist principles—with emphasis on the Four Noble Truths, the basis of the Buddha’s teachings—an international directory of Buddhist organizations, and more. Each page of the Dharma Diary reminds us that enlightenment lies in the here and now, the ordinary details of our daily lives.
