PDF of Sutra on Upasaka Precepts needed
« on: May 21, 2013, 09:19:52 am »
Although Rulu has a version, I prefer the Numata/BDK version translated by the Bhikshuni. I tried searching online, but no luck finding a PDF of the Numata/BDK translation that came out in 1994.

If anyone has, or knows of a link to such a PDF, please let me know. A searchable, cut & paste-able one if possible

Not sure if this is what you are after, but this is the Pali version where these particular precepts are undertaken on observance days.

These precepts are observed so that you can be like the Noble Ones, the Arhats on these days - because this is how Arhats behave.

Nope, not that one.  This is the Mahayana forum.
