Uposatha days are the specially assigned days of the month on which the Buddhists observe the Uposatha (eight) precepts and the members of the Order to recite patimokkha.
In the Teaching of the Buddha, the days for observance of the eight precepts are called uposatha divasa or uposatha days. The eighth and fifteenth days of the waxing half of the lunar month and the eighth and either the fourteenth or the fifteenth days of waning half of the lunar month are the fasting days.
The members of the Order observe uposatha on the fifteenth day of the waxing half of the month, as well as on the new moon days which fall alternately on the fourteenth and the fifteenth of the waning half of the month.
