Dear Dhamma Wheel Readers/Writers,
There is a sentence in the Snp 2.14 Dhammika Sutta () which puzzles me. Could you please explain what these special days are (e.g. what the difference is between "uposatha" and the "holiday of the half month"), and what a layperson does on these days (while keeping the 8 precepts)?
"With a gladdened mind observe the observance day (uposatha), complete with its eight factors, on the fourteenth, fifteenth and eighth days of the (lunar) fortnight and also the special holiday of the half month."
Thank you very much for your answer in advance.
