Hi, as the topic. and also welcome dear brother and sister can share what will you do in Uposatha day, Thanks a lot Sadhu
Absolutely! I worked in NYC (for nearly a year?) on eight precepts before I “went forth.” The hardest part was walking past the bagel shops on the way home from work in the evening
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.
