Lost tradition of Sila/Uposatha-day/observance
« on: November 01, 2018, 01:14:40 AM »
The Buddha allowed the Monks to give talks on Dhamma to laypeople gathering fourteenth, fifteenth, and eighth (day) of the fortnight.

Today this possibility and tradition is twofold undermined:

1. By hindrences such as not really recognising this days as "holly-days"

2. By the tendency of holding holly-days for holydays.

What's Nyom Guest or your workaround to keep good tradition alive?

Quote from: Johann in talk-box
...in earlier times "Buddhist" would come the day before Sila-day to the monastery and, not going to sleep, after having taken 8 precepts, do 24h merits. "good old times..." 

When asked, does it look like: "I get no freetime on those days usually." When freetime: "Oh, at least it's just holey- and not hollyday, today."

Posting in talk-box is limited in words and just for things like Abhivadana, greating, quick statements, Nyom Cheav Villa .

Breah Ang, I, Breah Karuna, like the topic about the Sila-Day, the deed of observing the Silas, the deed of gathering together on Sila-days as a day of merits, making merits in obaerving Silas and listen to the Dhamma.

* Johann : again over 400, 500 visitors now, yesterday nearly 600... seems that a lot of Devas following Nyom, come to listen speaking about the Dhamma, everytime here (5 years 50 at the same time was already much)  :)

ព្រះអង្គ តែការចាប់ធ្វេីអោយទូលំទូលាយឡេីងវិញ ថ្ងៃបុណ្យក្នុងប្រពៃណីរបស់ពុទ្ធសាសនិជន គួរផ្តេីមចេញពីកត្តាអ្វីខ្លះ បេីក្នុងស្ថានភាពមនុស្សជុំវិញខ្លួនជាច្រេីនមិនចូលចិត្តនឹងការលះធ្វេីបុណ្យ?

But, Breah Ang, but to force a general reinstallation in traditional ways of the Buddha-Sasana should come from what? All around in the world of humans there is the matter of dislike in regard of letting go to make merits.

[not sure if translated and understoid the question right in all aspects: may it be corrected if not.]

Yes, those delight in merits get lesser and lesser till it collapse again. How ever, the Buddha did not see that it is possible to change Samsaras ways, so one following him should not put to much hope in such. But! As soon one changes his aspiration ones world grows better and better by lesser and lesser involvement. That is why the Buddha encouraged not to keep Uposatha sometimes sometimes not, but to constantly increase it, taking Samvega but mostly pasada as ones force:

Ill-gotten if just sometimes :

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa

But another question, just curious: If there is a religious lay person in Cambodia wishing to keep the Uposatha-Day, would he/she get the holly-day from the company, like Sunday is the traditional free day for western/Christians?

ខាងលេីនេះជាចម្លេីយហេីយព្រះអង្គ ក្នុងការបដិបត្តិត្រូវតែចាប់ផ្តេីមពីឆន្ទះផ្ទាល់ខ្លួនមុន មិនមានត្រូវការអូសទាញអ្នកដទៃនោះទេ៕

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa

Jivaka Sutta: To Jivaka
(On Being a Lay Follower)


I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying in Rajagaha, at Jivaka's Mango Grove. Then Jivaka Komarabhacca went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down, sat to one side. As he was sitting there he said to the Blessed One: "Lord, to what extent is one a lay follower?"

"Jivaka, when one has gone to the Buddha for refuge, has gone to the Dhamma for refuge, and has gone to the Sangha for refuge, then to that extent is one a lay follower."

"And to what extent, lord, is one a virtuous lay follower?"

"Jivaka, when one abstains from taking life, from stealing, from sexual misconduct, from lying, and from fermented & distilled drinks that lead to heedlessness, then to that extent is one a virtuous lay follower."

"And to what extent, lord, is one a lay follower who practices for his own benefit but not that of others?"

"Jivaka, when a lay follower himself is consummate in conviction but does not encourage others in the consummation of conviction; when he himself is consummate in virtue but does not encourage others in the consummation of virtue; when he himself is consummate in generosity but does not encourage others in the consummation of generosity; when he himself desires to see the monks but does not encourage others to see the monks; when he himself wants to hear the true Dhamma but does not encourage others to hear the true Dhamma; when he himself habitually remembers the Dhamma he has heard but does not encourage others to remember the Dhamma they have heard; when he himself explores the meaning of the Dhamma he has heard but does not encourage others to explore the meaning of the Dhamma they have heard; when he himself, knowing both the Dhamma & its meaning, practices the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, but does not encourage others to practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma: then to that extent he is a lay follower who practices for his own benefit but not for the benefit of others."

"And to what extent, lord, is one a lay follower who practices both for his own benefit & the benefit of others?"

"Jivaka, when a lay follower himself is consummate in conviction and encourages others in the consummation of conviction; when he himself is consummate in virtue and encourages others in the consummation of virtue; when he himself is consummate in generosity and encourages others in the consummation of generosity; when he himself desires to see the monks and encourages others to see the monks; when he himself wants to hear the true Dhamma and encourages others to hear the true Dhamma; when he himself habitually remembers the Dhamma he has heard and encourages others to remember the Dhamma they have heard; when he himself explores the meaning of the Dhamma he has heard and encourages others to explore the meaning of the Dhamma they have heard; when he himself, knowing both the Dhamma & its meaning, practices the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma and encourages others to practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma: then to that extent he is a lay follower who practices both for his own benefit and for the benefit of others."
