Moon Days

Moon days, also known as Uposatha days, are an opportunity to deepen one’s practice. This calendar shows the moon days for this year.

Sanghamitta hosts a day of silence on Moon days when she is at home and without visitors.  Note: There will be no Moon Days hosted until some time in March 2018.

For more information on how to participate in a Moon day at Sanghmitta’s home, see Moon Days of Silence.
