Chapter IV The Tibetan Almanac In the previous chapters I have described most
of the calculations used to produce the Tibetan calendar. I use the word "
calendar" to refer to two things: the system, including the necessary algorithms
and calculations, that determines the start and duration of years, months, and
days; and also the structure that this system produces. This structure is presented
in booklets which are produced for each year. These are more properly called
almanacs, and ...

Farmers in Dolpo rely upon rudimentary technology—steel-tipped wooden plows
and hand tools—and the brute force of animals to plow their fields. The type of
animal used for draft labor differs among the four valleys, a function of tradition
and local herd composition. For example, Saldang villagers use horses (ta) to
plow fields, while those in Tinkyu and Polde villages use yak and yak-cattle
crossbreeds to till. Every year, the head village lama consults the Tibetan
almanac and ...

relatives, approaches the girl's maternal uncle with a khada, a ceremonial scarf
and one rupee, and ...

CHAPTER XIII THE ROAD TO CHUMBI IT was in the Earth-horse year of the
fifteenth cycle of the Tibetan almanac, corresponding to the year A.D. 1918 of the
less imaginative Gregorian calendar, that I crossed the dividing line between
Sikhim and Tibet — a feat, as will become apparent shortly, on a par with that of
an idol of my childhood's days, one Jack who climbed a beanstalk which towered
as high as heaven. True, it was not a giant's castle which awaited us ; yet it was a
land ...
