[228]

[1] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," they replied, and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, it is proper to deal with a monk,
guilty of some specified offence,
against whom proceedings have been taken,
in eight ways.

What eight?

Let him not have acceptance;[2]
let no help be given to him;[3]
let no novice be made to wait upon him;
let no doctrine put forward by him be listened to;
let him not admonish nuns,
even if authorized;
let him not enjoy any of the Order's sanctions;
let him not be placed in any special place of honour;
let him not gain re-instatement on any grounds.

[229] Monks, it is proper to deal with a monk,
guilty of some specified offence,
against whom proceedings have been taken,
in these eight ways."
