THE MAHAVAGGA

SECOND KHANDHAKA (THE UPOSATHA CEREMONY, AND THE PATIMOKKHA)

Chapter-13 : Boundaries Should be Non-Overlapping.

1. At that time the Chabbaggiya Bhikkhus made one boundary overlap another one (which had been determined before by other Bhikkhus).

They told this thing to the Lord Buddha.

'The act of those who have determined their boundary first is lawful, unobjectionable, and valid. The act of those who have determined their boundary afterwards is unlawful, objectionable, and invalid. Let no one, O Bhikkhus(Monks), make one boundary overlap another one. He who does, commits a dukkata offence.'

2. At that time the Chabbaggiya Bhikkhus made one boundary encompass another one (which had been determined before by other Bhikkhus).

They told this thing to the Lord Buddha.

'The act of those, &c. (see § 1). Let no one, O Bhikkhus(Monks), make one boundary overlap another one. He who does, commits a dukkata offence. I prescribe, O Bhikkhus(Monks), that he who determines a boundary, is to determine it so as to leave an interstice between the boundaries.'
