[70] [1387]

[1][pts] "Bhante, how many reasons are there for suspending the Pātimokkha."

"There are, Upāli, ten reasons for suspending the Pātimokkha.

What ten?

(1) One who has committed a pārājika is sitting in that assembly;

(2) a discussion about one who has committed a pārājika is underway;

(3) one not fully ordained is sitting in that assembly;

[71] (4) a discussion about one not fully ordained is underway;

(5) one who has given up the training is sitting in that assembly;

(6) a discussion about one who has given up the training is underway;

(7) a eunuch is sitting in that assembly;

(8) a discussion about a eunuch is underway;

(9) a seducer of a bhikkhunī is sitting in that assembly;

(10) a discussion about a seducer of a bhikkhunī is underway.

These are the ten reasons for suspending the Pātimokkha."
