Re: Let's emulate the Arahants, let's make everyday an "Uposatha day"

Anumodana for this post and all those like it. Even if everyone had less than pure motives I'd rather see this than the endless debates. :anjali:

Re: Uposatha Observance Club

Happy New Moon Uposatha (May 4th 2019)!
Rain soddens what's covered
& doesn't sodden what's open.
So open up what's covered up,
so that it won't get soddened by the rain.[2]

Re: Uposatha Observance Club

Happy uposatha! The Bak Poya day is the full-moon of April. This holy day celebrates that the Buddha visits Ceylon for the second time to reconcile two local nāga chiefs Mahodara and Cūlodara, uncle and nephew, who had fallen into war threatening hostility about a jewel-beset throne... The story sho...

Re: Uposatha Observance Club

Happy uposatha! For those interested and so-inclined, I always find it particularly beneficial to offer Sangha-dana on the uposatha. Wishing you all a fruitful observance.

Re: 30 hours without any sleep and counting

Yes, I would. I'm concerned about the trembling. Drink some water and just rest for a bit too.

Re: 30 hours without any sleep and counting

As I said, I'm no expert. 30 hours without feeling tired is definitely beyond normal. I'm concerned and think you should speak with a professional. You will, however, do as you want. Be well.

Re: 30 hours without any sleep and counting

Stefan,

I think you should contact your therapist (if you have one). You may be having a manic episode (I'm no professional though). Please contact a mental health professional and stay away from stimulants in the interim. Wishing you every good blessing, health and peace!
