It was a relatively quiet day of eight precept adherence for me on Friday (the day my calendar said was Vesak).
In reality though, other than the not eating after lunchtime and the avoidance of music and entertainments, it was just like any other Friday really - a bit of meditation, a bit of Dhamma study, a bit of online Dhamma discussion.
The only other highlight was my Wii Fit balance board telling me I'd lost 2.0 kg since the previous night's weigh in... good old full moon days.

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)
“One to whom it might occur, ‘I’m a woman’ or ‘I’m a man’. Or ‘I’m anything at all’— Is fit for Mara to address.” (SN 5.2)
