On the first and fifteenth day of the lunar month, which are the new moon and full moon day respectively, many Buddhists assemble in the temple to meditate, make offerings, recite sermons and perform acts of veneration for the Triple Gem. Many also take vegetarian meals on these days and some may also choose to observe the Eight Precepts.
