THE MAHAVAGGA

FIRST KHANDHAKA(THE FORMATION OF THE ORDER OF BHIKKHUS)

Chapter-59 : Not to Draw Followers of Other Monks.

At that time the Chabbaggiya Bhikkhus drew the novices of senior Bhikkhus over (to themselves). The Theras, who were obliged to get themselves teeth-cleansers and water to rinse their mouths with, became tired.

They told this thing to the Lord Buddha.

'Let no one, O Bhikkhus(Monks), draw the followers of another Bhikkhu over to himself. He who does, commits a dukkata offence.'
