Suttas 328

Pattaggahapaka Suttam

The Receiver of Bowls (1)

[328.1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Savatthi;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, if a monk follow the course of five things,
he ought not to be selected as one who is the receiver of undergarments.

What five?

He goes astray from wish,
he goes astray from hatred,
he goes astray from confusion,
he goes astray from fear,
and he knows not what is taken[1] from what is not.

Monks, if a monk follow the course of these five things,
he ought not to be selected as one who is the receiver of undergarments.

 


 

'Monks, if a monk follow the course of five things,
he may be selected as one who is the receiver of undergarments.

What five?

He does not go astray from wish,
he does not go astray from hatred,
he does not go astray from confusion,
he does not go astray from fear,
and he knows what is taken from what is not.

Monks, if a monk follow the course of these five things,
he may be selected as one who is the receiver of undergarments.

'Monks, if a monk follow the course of five things,

if selected,
he ought not to be sent.

What five?
