[153]

[1][than][olds] 'Monks, these five trades
ought not to be plied by a lay-disciple.

What five?

Trade in weapons,
trade in human beings,
trade in flesh,[1]
trade in spirits
and trade in poison.

Verily, monks, these five trades
ought not to be plied by a lay-disciple.'

 


[1] Comy. he breeds and sells pigs, deer, etc.
