uposatha

Post by Sovatthika » Fri Oct 13, 2017 3:37 am

how often is uposatha observed in the ebts? is it the new, full and quarter moons, or is it just the new and full moons, or is it not specified

All four are uposatha days for eight-precept observance, though for the monastic sangha only the full and new moons are for Pāṭimokkha recital.

The lay observance is in the Cātumahārāja Sutta; the monastic one somewhere in the Vinaya's Khandhakas.
