The calendar with the famous Ten Ox-herding Pictures. For those unfamiliar with the significance of these pictures, the ox is the mind. At first wild and untamed. Prone to run hither and thither. Man must catch the ox and fixed to one point, the ox will soon submit and be calm. Once the ox is tamed, life will become easier and more comfortable.
The Ox-herding Pictures are a sort of road map to the Way of Zen. This calendar is meant to keep you more or less on the way every day.
The original text has been made more accessible to a larger public. In addition the orignal Ten Pictures have been reillustrated and on each calendar page you will find an overview of the progress of The Taming of the Ox.
The Taming of the Ox is highlighted on seven calendar pages with back cover. Printed in ox-red on 250 grams paper in A4-format (29,7 x 21 cm). Finished in Wire-O with hanger-binding.
The birthday calendar is bilingual. One side is in Dutch and the other side in English.
