pāṭihāriyapakkha (special observance days)

Post by salayatananirodha » Sun Sep 01, 2019 2:52 pm

hello, i have been trying to keep uposatha precepts each 8th, 14th and 15th of each lunar fortnight
but i want to be true to this sutta https://suttacentral.net/sn10.5/en/sujato and this āgama if it is reliable https://suttacentral.net/sa-2.46/en/bingenheimer
i want to know with a reasonable amount of certainty when these special observance days are so that i can keep them when they are to be kept
16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)
