Literally the "period" (ai 間) of "loosened" (ge 解) rules. The interim periods, each three months long, that intersperse the summer and winter retreats. Traditionally, a time when Buddhist monks are free to wander, make pilgrimages to sacred sites, and travel to other monasteries where they wish to register for a retreat. →"retreat."
