THE MAHAVAGGA

FIRST KHANDHAKA(THE FORMATION OF THE ORDER OF BHIKKHUS)

Chapter-47: No Ordination for Slaves.

At that time a slave ran away and was ordained with the Bhikkhus. When his masters saw him, they said: 'There is our slave; come, let us lead him away (back to our house),' (&c., as in chap. 46).

'Let no slave, O Bhikkhus(Monks), receive the pabbajja ordination. He who confers the pabbajja ordination (on a slave), is guilty of a dukkata offence.'
