The following is a quick list of some days to be aware of. They include some birthdays, special days, anniversaries and other events. Both with Auspicious Days with an increase in Karmic benefit and Inauspicious Days in which one should avoid certain ceremonies. These aren't discussed much and a group that I am/was part of used to make a calendar with them. I was thinking about them and wanted to honor FPMT and LPP for everything they do for people in need.
