    Nevertheless, these days householders are able to (1) undertake the occasional vows, including the practice of fasting, as explained in the Abhidharma’s treatment of the eight vows on the full moon, new moon, and eighth lunar day, and (2) permanently maintain a single vow, thereby abandoning one of the nonvirtues, such as killing or lying.

      - For this reason, during auspicious times such as the full moon, do not wander about doing meaningless things. Rather, adhere to the paths leading to the higher states and liberation—namely, the eight occasional vows: the four root vows and abstention from intoxicants, wearing garlands, high beds, and meals after noon.

    Do not be idle on auspicious days such as the full and new moons. Observe the eight occasional vows, the infallible cause for obtaining rebirth in the higher realms.

- Jigme Lingpa
