THE MAHAVAGGA

SECOND KHANDHAKA (THE UPOSATHA CEREMONY, AND THE PATIMOKKHA)

Chapter-10 : Theras(Elders) Should Assemble First For Patimokkha(Confession) Ceremony.

At that time in a certain district on the day of Uposatha the young Bhikkhus, who had assembled first, thought: 'The Theras(Elder Monks) do not come yet,' and went away. The Uposatha service was held after the right time.

They told this thing to the Lord Buddha.

'I prescribe, O Bhikkhus(Monks), that on the Uposatha day the Theras ought to assemble first.'
