The Eight-Precept Observance
I compiled the Uposatha Sila when I still held the rank of Maha. At that time, the manuscript had some errors but now have been corrected. This text will be used in the curriculum of "Nak Dhamm Tri" * for the men and women who be testing. Though for laity the subject of lay discipline replaces that of clergy discipline in the exams. The testing shall be held every year starting in B.E. 2472 (1929).

* Every year in Thailand there are religious exams given through monasteries known as "Nak Dhamm" for the clergy and "Dhamma Sueksa" for the laity. From the lowest to the highest the exams are Tri, To and Ek.
