A special date: July 14th 2016, Thursday / 10th day of the 5th lunar month of this fire monkey year.
Guru Rinpoche, the Padmasambava sphere of influence transcends time. Currently way over a thousand years after very active period of establishment of Buddhism in Tibet Guru Rinpoche legacy keeps getting refreshed through newer spiritual treasures discovered to this day as well as truly Universal tone that these teachings have.
Traditionally we recognize Guru Rinpoche appearance in this world on the 10th day of the 6th month of the Wood Monkey year, possibly 2556(about) years ago.
In lunar year that coincides with the 2016 for the purpose of adjustment of the several year cycle there is an extra fourth month. So, while fifth month that comes along in July is called 5th it is actually possibly the month number 6 of this current year.
That gives us possibility to think of Guru Rinpoche birthday more this year then in some other year.
Guru Rinpoche during the 6th month is known as Guru Pema Junghey, the lotus born guru.
