Calculate those Festival Days!

There is now a link under "Favourite Sites" to a site for calculating the phases of the Moon "Moon Phase Calculator". So for example in Mahayana countries the Buddhist new year starts on the first full moon day in January, by using the calculator you find that this is on the 22nd, in Theravadin countries, Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Lao, the new year is celebrated for three days from the first full moon day in April, which this year falls on the 20th. There is also a link on the "Dharma Study Archive" page under STUDY TOOLS.

Not forgetting the display of the present Moon phase which is located at the very bottom of this page!

There is also a new Search Box at the top of the right hand column that uses Google's Custom Search Engine. This will search the blog and all the "Favourite Sites".
