THE MAHAVAGGA

FIRST KHANDHAKA(THE FORMATION OF THE ORDER OF BHIKKHUS)

Chapter-44 : No Ordination for Those Punished by Scourging.

At that time a certain person who had been punished by scourging had been ordained with the Bhikkhus. People were annoyed, &c.: 'How can these Sakyaputtiya Samanas ordain a person that has been punished by scourging?'

They told this thing to the Lord Buddha.

'Let no one, O Bhikkhus(Monks), who has been punished by scourging, receive the pabbajja ordination. He who confers the pabbajja ordination (on such a person), is guilty of dukkata offence.'
