Uposata (Fusatsu) - Good habits for good physical and mental health.
Uposatha is translated as "fusatsu" in Japanese. It was considered by the Buddha to be his most important event. Originally, it was a ceremony held twice a month to reflect on the reading of the precepts. Precepts means "good habits". In the Fusatsu, the participants first prostrate themselves before the Buddha and repent for their sins, which they have committed without knowing. Then the precepts are read out loud in modern Japanese so that the mind can develop good habits. It is through these precepts that the mind, called "zenjo," is quieted and correct "wisdom" can be acquired.
