Uposatha Day

It’s the uposatha and it’s the first I’ve been able to observe in awhile. I spent this past weekend building and rebuilding a loft bed and book shelf so I have had little time for anything else. Now it’s Tuesday and my hands are a little worse for wear and stuck full of slivers.

It’s been a trying time with my kids’ behavior, my own bout with shingles and the beginning of what we’ve been told will be my wife’s most difficult semester. I hope to find some solace in the practice and to make some progress. Bhikkhu Samahita mentioned that he reads the suttas every uposatha so that he can read the entire Tipitaka within the space of some years. I would like to start doing the same today so I will begin with the Samyutta Nikaya and try to read two suttas every observance day.

May we all taste the Deathless and never surrender until we win final release.
