Today (or yesterday) is the Last Quarter Moon Uposatha. I will be observing today and will be available for moral support if anyone feels the nee for it :hug: Here is a link to the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/events/325988030812726/

May your practice bear great fruit whether you're able to observe today or not!

I have a small question about Uposatha: are hammocks allowable? :anjali:
Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Happy Uposatha! I think I might make the two hour journey to Wat Metta for the day. Just trying to gage my tiredness right now to see if I can drive since it's not even quite 5 am here yet.

Edit: Scratch that, my Pops is sick so I guess I'll be looking after him for the day.

Today is Magha Puja!

This day, sometimes called "Sangha Day," commemorates the spontaneous assembly of 1,250 arahants in the Buddha's presence. One thousand of the gathered monks had previously achieved Awakening upon hearing the Buddha's delivery of the Fire Sermon; the remaining 250 were followers of the elder monks Ven. Moggallana and Ven. Sariputta. To mark this auspicious gathering, the Buddha delivered the Ovada-Patimokkha Gatha, a summary of the main points of the Dhamma, which the Buddha gave to the assembly before sending them out to proclaim the doctrine.
