Hello! My name's Cheyenne and I'm in high school. Recently, my anatomy teacher gave me a puzzle to solve in order to unlock a secret treasure. I know it sounds dumb, but that's what my high school consists of. Anyways, the puzzle talks about the Buddhist calendar and the year 1011. Here's a picture. I hope you can help us solve it. Thanks!
P.S. My teacher gave us hints that include architecture, cryptography, and world music. Pictures of the puzzles are attached.

Hi Cheyenne,

I am sorry I can't help you as this has nothing to do with Buddhism.  

Perhaps just my 2 cents worth of observation.  Your teacher is just adding a bit of exotic mystery by bringing in the term "Buddhist Calender" to further "confuse" you and make the riddle more interesting and complicated.  It is certainly not a Buddhist calender, as there is no such thing as a Buddhist calender.  You need to think outside the box and need not relate your search to Buddhism.

Wish you success in your search.  Take care.

All your questions will be answered, and you may not have to agree with the answers. Such is the beauty of Buddhism. I follow the Theravada tradition, and have been studying Buddhism for more than 50 years. As I am not a Buddhist scholar, I answer in simple language, and I prefer answering general questions rather than textual.


I was brought up in the 50's as a Buddhist. For the past 50 years I have read numerous books on Buddhism and listened to numerous talks on Buddhism by well-respected and learned monks and lay teachers. I have conducted Buddhist classes for parents of Sunday School children in a Theravada Buddhist Temple. My teacher was the late Chief Reverend, The Ven. K Sri Dhammananda of The Brickfields Buddhist Mahavihara, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You can view the relevant website in memory of my revered late teacher @ http://www.ksridhammananda.com and my blog posting at http://blackandwhite999.blogspot.com/2008/08/my-revered-teacher.html

I am a life member of the Buddhist Missionary Society Malaysia.

YOU ARE INVITED TO VISIT MY BLOG @ http://lifeislikethat999.blogspot.com/ Published a book called "The Rainbow And The Treasure". It is a compilation of extracts from various sources to introduce Buddhism to beginners. (Currently out of print)
