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

in booklets which are produced for each year. These are more properly called
almanacs, and ...

Their marriage customs, due to strong Tibetan influence, are quite similar to the
Bhutia. The marriage is negotiated between the families of the bride and the
groom. If the marriage deal is settled, the lama will look through the Tibetan
almanac to check the horoscopes of the boy and girl and to schedule a
favourable date for the wedding. Then the boy's maternal uncle, along with other
relatives, approaches the girl's maternal uncle with a khada, a ceremonial scarf

antlers; a bear or perhaps a dog with a broad snout; and a reptile with scaly
green skin and flared nostrils. The Island of Doctor Moreau crossed my mind,
then the image recently in Kuensel of a black-and-white cartoon dog wearing a
yellow gho and running on its hind legs like a person. This was Male Fire Dog
