Mongolia | Zaisan Tolgoi | End of Occultation

As most of you know, the eighth New Moon of the Lunar Year occurs today, September 5, at 7:36 PM local time. Traditionally, this is when I emerge from my Summer Occultation, which this summer included a Forty-Day Retreat. The Harvest Moon is coming up on September 19, with the Autumn Equinox four days later on September 23 at 4:44. AM. So it is shaping up as a celestially significant month. Make your plans accordingly.

  3. Occultation does not preclude shaving.

  5. Thanks, Don. Sorry about that. I'm just working through a major depression and some issues right now. I should probably keep these things to myself.

  12. If your comments sections weren't turned off for your most recent posts, I'd comment on your post with the interior shots of the caves. Must have been fun exploring them!
