SECOND KHANDHAKA (THE UPOSATHA CEREMONY, AND THE PATIMOKKHA)
Chapter-31: Cases While Bhikkus Are Aware of Their Incompleteness But Have Confidence.
'In case, O Bhikkhus(Monks), there assemble, &c.; they know that there are other resident Bhikkhus absent. (Thinking): "We are competent to hold Uposatha, we are not incompetent," they abandon themselves to misbehaviour, hold Uposatha, and recite the Patimokkha, &c.'
End of the fifteen cases of the Bhikkhus abandoning themselves to misbehaviour.
