Can we still work or study as usual while we are taking the Eight Precepts?

Hi, as the topic. and also welcome dear brother and sister can share what will you do in Uposatha day, Thanks a lot Sadhu :grin:

Absolutely! I worked in NYC (for nearly a year?) on eight precepts before I β€œwent forth.” The hardest part was walking past the bagel shops on the way home from work in the evening :laughing:


I have a friend who is a Buddhist nun.

When she was still a lay person she kept the 8 precepts while holding down a full time job.

She would skip dinner in the evenings to meditate and study. She volunteered on the weekends at just about every Theravada temple in the area.
