1. Kassapagottabhikkhuvatthu
1. The account of the monk Kassapagotta

Tena samayena buddho bhagavā campāyaṁ viharati gaggarāya pokkharaṇiyā tīre.
At one time the Buddha was staying at Campā on the banks of the Gaggarā lotus pond.

Tena kho pana samayena kāsīsu janapade vāsabhagāmo nāma hoti.
At that time in the country of Kāsī there was a village called Vāsabha

Tattha kassapagotto nāma bhikkhu āvāsiko hoti tantibaddho ussukkaṁ āpanno—
with a resident monk called Kassapagotta. He was dedicated to the local monastery,

“kinti anāgatā ca pesalā bhikkhū āgaccheyyuṁ, āgatā ca pesalā bhikkhū phāsu vihareyyuṁ, ayañca āvāso vuddhiṁ viruḷhiṁ vepullaṁ āpajjeyyā”ti.
trying to get good monks to come, to help those who had come be comfortable, and to make the local monastery grow and reach maturity.

Tena kho pana samayena sambahulā bhikkhū kāsīsu cārikaṁ caramānā yena vāsabhagāmo tadavasaruṁ.
At this time a number of monks who were wandering in Kāsī arrived at Vāsabha.

Addasā kho kassapagotto bhikkhu te bhikkhū dūratova āgacchante, disvāna āsanaṁ paññapesi, pādodakaṁ pādapīṭhaṁ pādakathalikaṁ upanikkhipi, paccuggantvā pattacīvaraṁ paṭiggahesi, pānīyena āpucchi, nahāne ussukkaṁ akāsi, ussukkampi akāsi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.
When Kassapagotta saw those monks coming, he prepared seats, and he set out a foot stool, a foot scraper, and water for washing the feet. He then went out to meet them, received their bowls and robes, and asked if they wanted water to drink. He made sure they had a bath, and he helped them get congee, fresh foods, and meals.

Atha kho tesaṁ āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ etadahosi—
Those newly arrived monks thought,

“bhaddako kho ayaṁ, āvuso, āvāsiko bhikkhu nahāne ussukkaṁ karoti, ussukkampi karoti yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.
“He’s great, this resident monk, in that he helps us with all these things.

Handa mayaṁ, āvuso, idheva vāsabhagāme nivāsaṁ kappemā”ti.
Let’s settle down right here in Vāsabha.”

Atha kho te āgantukā bhikkhū tattheva vāsabhagāme nivāsaṁ kappesuṁ.
And they did just that.

Atha kho kassapagottassa bhikkhuno etadahosi—
Soon afterwards Kassapagotta thought,

“yo kho imesaṁ āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ āgantukakilamatho so paṭippassaddho.
“These monks are now rid of their tiredness from traveling.

Yepime gocare appakataññuno tedānime gocare pakataññuno.
And by now they know where to get alms.

Dukkaraṁ kho pana parakulesu yāvajīvaṁ ussukkaṁ kātuṁ, viññatti ca manussānaṁ amanāpā.
Also, in the long run it’s hard work to seek support from unrelated folk, and people don’t like to be asked.

Yannūnāhaṁ na ussukkaṁ kareyyaṁ yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmin”ti.
Why don’t I stop helping them get congee, fresh foods, and meals?”

So na ussukkaṁ akāsi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.
And he did.

Atha kho tesaṁ āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ etadahosi—
Those newly arrived monks considered,

“pubbe khvāyaṁ, āvuso, āvāsiko bhikkhu nahāne ussukkaṁ akāsi, ussukkampi akāsi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.
“Previously this resident monk made sure we got a bath, and he helped us get congee, fresh foods, and meals.

Sodānāyaṁ na ussukkaṁ karoti yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.
But now he’s stopped.

Duṭṭhodānāyaṁ, āvuso, āvāsiko bhikkhu.
He’s become hostile, this resident monk.

Handa mayaṁ, āvuso, āvāsikaṁ bhikkhuṁ ukkhipāmā”ti.
Well then, let’s eject him.”

Atha kho te āgantukā bhikkhū sannipatitvā kassapagottaṁ bhikkhuṁ etadavocuṁ—
Soon afterwards those newly arrived monks gathered and confronted Kassapagotta with what had happened, adding,

“pubbe kho tvaṁ, āvuso, nahāne ussukkaṁ karosi, ussukkampi karosi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Sodāni tvaṁ na ussukkaṁ karosi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Āpattiṁ tvaṁ, āvuso, āpanno.
“You’ve committed an offense.

Passasetaṁ āpattin”ti?
Do you recognize it?”

“Natthi me, āvuso, āpatti, yamahaṁ passeyyan”ti.
“No. I haven’t committed any offense that I should recognize.”

Atha kho te āgantukā bhikkhū kassapagottaṁ bhikkhuṁ āpattiyā adassane ukkhipiṁsu.
Those newly arrived monks then ejected Kassapagotta for not recognizing an offense.

Atha kho kassapagottassa bhikkhuno etadahosi—
Kassapagotta thought,

“ahaṁ kho etaṁ na jānāmi ‘āpatti vā esā anāpatti vā, āpanno camhi anāpanno vā, ukkhitto camhi anukkhitto vā, dhammikena vā adhammikena vā, kuppena vā akuppena vā, ṭhānārahena vā aṭṭhānārahena vā’.
“I don’t actually know whether this was an offense or not, whether I’ve committed one or not, whether I’ve been ejected or not, whether it was legitimate or not, whether it’s reversible or not, whether it’s fit to stand or not.

Yannūnāhaṁ campaṁ gantvā bhagavantaṁ etamatthaṁ puccheyyan”ti.
Let me go to Campā and ask the Buddha.”

Atha kho kassapagotto bhikkhu senāsanaṁ saṁsāmetvā pattacīvaramādāya yena campā tena pakkāmi.
He then put his dwelling in order, took his bowl and robe, and set out for Campā.

Anupubbena yena campā yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami, upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṁ abhivādetvā ekamantaṁ nisīdi.
When he eventually arrived, he went to the Buddha, bowed, and sat down.

Āciṇṇaṁ kho panetaṁ buddhānaṁ bhagavantānaṁ āgantukehi bhikkhūhi saddhiṁ paṭisammodituṁ.
Since it is the custom for Buddhas to greet newly arrived monks,

Atha kho bhagavā kassapagottaṁ bhikkhuṁ etadavoca—
the Buddha said to Kassapagotta,

“kacci, bhikkhu, khamanīyaṁ, kacci yāpanīyaṁ,
“I hope you’re keeping well, monk, I hope you’re getting by?

kacci appakilamathena addhānaṁ āgato,
I hope you’re not tired from traveling?

kuto ca tvaṁ, bhikkhu, āgacchasī”ti?
And where have you come from?”

“Khamanīyaṁ, bhagavā, yāpanīyaṁ, bhagavā;
“I’m keeping well, Venerable Sir, I’m getting by.

appakilamathena cāhaṁ, bhante, addhānaṁ āgato.
I’m not tired from traveling.”

Atthi, bhante, kāsīsu janapade vāsabhagāmo nāma.
And he told the Buddha all that had happened, adding,

Tatthāhaṁ, bhagavā, āvāsiko tantibaddho ussukkaṁ āpanno—

‘kinti anāgatā ca pesalā bhikkhū āgaccheyyuṁ, āgatā ca pesalā bhikkhū phāsu vihareyyuṁ, ayañca āvāso vuddhiṁ viruḷhiṁ vepullaṁ āpajjeyyā’ti.

Atha kho, bhante, sambahulā bhikkhū kāsīsu cārikaṁ caramānā yena vāsabhagāmo tadavasaruṁ.

Addasaṁ kho ahaṁ, bhante, te bhikkhū dūratova āgacchante, disvāna āsanaṁ paññapesiṁ, pādodakaṁ pādapīṭhaṁ pādakathalikaṁ upanikkhipiṁ, paccuggantvā pattacīvaraṁ paṭiggahesiṁ, pānīyena apucchiṁ, nahāne ussukkaṁ akāsiṁ, ussukkampi akāsiṁ yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Atha kho tesaṁ, bhante, āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ etadahosi—

‘bhaddako kho ayaṁ āvuso āvāsiko bhikkhu nahāne ussukkaṁ karoti, ussukkampi karoti yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Handa mayaṁ, āvuso, idheva vāsabhagāme nivāsaṁ kappemā’ti.

Atha kho te, bhante, āgantukā bhikkhū tattheva vāsabhagāme nivāsaṁ kappesuṁ.

Tassa mayhaṁ, bhante, etadahosi—

‘yo kho imesaṁ āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ āgantukakilamatho so paṭippassaddho.

Yepime gocare appakataññuno tedānime gocare pakataññuno.

Dukkaraṁ kho pana parakulesu yāvajīvaṁ ussukkaṁ kātuṁ, viññatti ca manussānaṁ amanāpā.

Yannūnāhaṁ na ussukkaṁ kareyyaṁ yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmin’ti.

So kho ahaṁ, bhante, na ussukkaṁ akāsiṁ yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Atha kho tesaṁ, bhante, āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ etadahosi—

‘pubbe khvāyaṁ, āvuso, āvāsiko bhikkhu nahāne ussukkaṁ karoti, ussukkampi karoti yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Sodānāyaṁ na ussukkaṁ karoti yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Duṭṭhodānāyaṁ, āvuso, āvāsiko bhikkhu.

Handa mayaṁ, āvuso, āvāsikaṁ bhikkhuṁ ukkhipāmā’ti.

Atha kho te, bhante, āgantukā bhikkhū sannipatitvā maṁ etadavocuṁ—

‘pubbe kho tvaṁ, āvuso, nahāne ussukkaṁ karosi, ussukkampi karosi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Sodāni tvaṁ na ussukkaṁ karosi yāguyā khādanīye bhattasmiṁ.

Āpattiṁ tvaṁ, āvuso, āpanno.

Passasetaṁ āpattin’ti?

‘Natthi me, āvuso, āpatti yamahaṁ passeyyan’ti.

Atha kho te, bhante, āgantukā bhikkhū maṁ āpattiyā adassane ukkhipiṁsu.

Tassa mayhaṁ, bhante, etadahosi—

‘ahaṁ kho etaṁ na jānāmi “āpatti vā esā anāpatti vā, āpanno camhi anāpanno vā, ukkhitto camhi anukkhitto vā, dhammikena vā adhammikena vā, kuppena vā akuppena vā, ṭhānārahena vā aṭṭhānārahena vā”.

Yannūnāhaṁ campaṁ gantvā bhagavantaṁ etamatthaṁ puccheyyan’ti.

Tato ahaṁ, bhagavā, āgacchāmī”ti.
“That’s where I’ve come from.”

“Anāpatti esā, bhikkhu, nesā āpatti.
“Well, that’s not an offense, monk,

Anāpannosi, nasi āpanno.

Anukkhittosi, nasi ukkhitto.
and you haven’t been ejected.

Adhammikenāsi kammena ukkhitto kuppena aṭṭhānārahena.
You’ve been ejected by an illegitimate legal procedure that’s reversible and unfit to stand.

Gaccha tvaṁ, bhikkhu, tattheva vāsabhagāme nivāsaṁ kappehī”ti.
Go back and stay right there in the village of Vāsabha.”

“Evaṁ, bhante”ti kho kassapagotto bhikkhu bhagavato paṭissuṇitvā uṭṭhāyāsanā bhagavantaṁ abhivādetvā padakkhiṇaṁ katvā yena vāsabhagāmo tena pakkāmi.
“Yes, Sir.” He got up from his seat, bowed down, circumambulated the Buddha with his right side toward him, and set out for Vāsabha.

Atha kho tesaṁ āgantukānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ ahudeva kukkuccaṁ, ahu vippaṭisāro—
Soon those newly arrived monks became anxious and remorseful:

“alābhā vata no, na vata no lābhā;
“It’s truly bad for us

dulladdhaṁ vata no, na vata no suladdhaṁ, ye mayaṁ suddhaṁ bhikkhuṁ anāpattikaṁ avatthusmiṁ akāraṇe ukkhipimhā.
that we have ejected, without reason, a pure monk who hadn’t committed any offense.

Handa mayaṁ, āvuso, campaṁ gantvā bhagavato santike accayaṁ accayato desemā”ti.
Well then, let’s go to Campā and confess our mistake to the Buddha.”

Atha kho te āgantukā bhikkhū senāsanaṁ saṁsāmetvā pattacīvaramādāya yena campā tena pakkamiṁsu.
They then put their dwellings in order, took their bowls and robes, and set out for Campā.

Anupubbena yena campā yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkamiṁsu, upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṁ abhivādetvā ekamantaṁ nisīdiṁsu.
When they eventually arrived, they went to the Buddha, bowed, and sat down.

Āciṇṇaṁ kho panetaṁ buddhānaṁ bhagavantānaṁ āgantukehi bhikkhūhi saddhiṁ paṭisammodituṁ.
Since it is the custom for Buddhas to greet newly arrived monks,

Atha kho bhagavā te bhikkhū etadavoca—
the Buddha said to them,

“kacci, bhikkhave, khamanīyaṁ, kacci yāpanīyaṁ,
“I hope you’re keeping well, monks, I hope you’re getting by?

kaccittha appakilamathena addhānaṁ āgatā,
I hope you’re not tired from traveling?

kuto ca tumhe, bhikkhave, āgacchathā”ti?
And where have you come from?”

“Khamanīyaṁ, bhagavā, yāpanīyaṁ, bhagavā;
“We’re keeping well, Venerable Sir, we’re getting by.

appakilamathena ca mayaṁ, bhante, addhānaṁ āgatā.
We’re not tired from traveling.

Atthi, bhante, kāsīsu janapade vāsabhagāmo nāma.
There’s a village in the country of Kāsī called Vāsabha.

Tato mayaṁ, bhagavā, āgacchāmā”ti.
That’s where we’ve come from.”

“Tumhe, bhikkhave, āvāsikaṁ bhikkhuṁ ukkhipitthā”ti?
“Are you the ones who ejected the resident monk?”

“Evaṁ, bhante”ti.
“Yes, Sir.”

“Kismiṁ, bhikkhave, vatthusmiṁ kāraṇe”ti?
“For what reason?”

“Avatthusmiṁ, bhagavā, akāraṇe”ti.
“Without any reason.”

Vigarahi buddho bhagavā—
The Buddha rebuked them,

“ananucchavikaṁ, moghapurisā, ananulomikaṁ appatirūpaṁ assāmaṇakaṁ akappiyaṁ akaraṇīyaṁ.
“Foolish men, it’s not suitable, it’s not proper, it’s not worthy of a monastic, it’s not allowable, it’s not to be done.

Kathañhi nāma tumhe, moghapurisā, suddhaṁ bhikkhuṁ anāpattikaṁ avatthusmiṁ akāraṇe ukkhipissatha.
How could you, without reason, eject a pure monk who hadn’t committed any offense?

Netaṁ, moghapurisā, appasannānaṁ vā pasādāya …pe…
This will affect people’s confidence …”

vigarahitvā dhammiṁ kathaṁ katvā bhikkhū āmantesi—
After rebuking them … he gave a teaching and addressed the monks:

“na, bhikkhave, suddho bhikkhu anāpattiko avatthusmiṁ akāraṇe ukkhipitabbo.
“You shouldn’t, without reason, eject a pure monk who hasn’t committed any offense.

Yo ukkhipeyya, āpatti dukkaṭassā”ti.
If you do, you commit an offense of wrong conduct.”

Atha kho te bhikkhū uṭṭhāyāsanā ekaṁsaṁ uttarāsaṅgaṁ karitvā bhagavato pādesu sirasā nipatitvā bhagavantaṁ etadavocuṁ—
Those monks then got up from their seats, arranged their upper robes over one shoulder, bowed down with their heads at the Buddha’s feet, and said,

“accayo no, bhante, accagamā yathābāle yathāmūḷhe yathāakusale, ye mayaṁ suddhaṁ bhikkhuṁ anāpattikaṁ avatthusmiṁ akāraṇe ukkhipimhā.
“Venerable Sir, we have made a mistake. We’ve been foolish, confused, and unskillful in ejecting, without reason, a pure monk who hadn’t committed any offense.

Tesaṁ no, bhante, bhagavā accayaṁ accayato paṭiggaṇhātu āyatiṁ saṁvarāyā”ti.
Please accept our confession so that we may restrain ourselves in the future.”

“Taggha tumhe, bhikkhave, accayo accagamā yathābāle yathāmūḷhe yathāakusale, ye tumhe suddhaṁ bhikkhuṁ anāpattikaṁ avatthusmiṁ akāraṇe ukkhipittha.
“You have certainly made a mistake. You’ve been foolish, confused, and unskillful.

Yato ca kho tumhe, bhikkhave, accayaṁ accayato disvā yathādhammaṁ paṭikarotha, taṁ vo mayaṁ paṭiggaṇhāma.
But since you acknowledge your mistake and make proper amends, I forgive you.

Vuddhihesā, bhikkhave, ariyassa vinaye yo accayaṁ accayato disvā yathādhammaṁ paṭikaroti, āyatiṁ saṁvaraṁ āpajjatī”ti.
For this is called growth in the training of the noble ones: acknowledging a mistake, making proper amends, and undertaking restraint for the future.”

2. Adhammenavaggādikammakathā
2. Discussion of illegitimate legal procedures done by an incomplete assembly, etc.

Tena kho pana samayena campāyaṁ bhikkhū evarūpāni kammāni karonti—
At that time the monks at Campā did legal procedures such as these:

adhammena vaggakammaṁ karonti, adhammena samaggakammaṁ karonti;
illegitimate legal procedures done by an incomplete assembly, illegitimate legal procedures done by a unanimous assembly,

dhammena vaggakammaṁ karonti, dhammapatirūpakena vaggakammaṁ karonti;
legitimate legal procedures done by an incomplete assembly, legitimate-like legal procedures done by an incomplete assembly,

dhammapatirūpakena samaggakammaṁ karonti;
legitimate-like legal procedures done by a unanimous assembly,

ekopi ekaṁ ukkhipati, ekopi dve ukkhipati, ekopi sambahule ukkhipati, ekopi saṅghaṁ ukkhipati;
one person ejecting another, one ejecting two, one ejecting three, one ejecting a sangha,

saṅghopi saṅghaṁ ukkhipati.
a sangha ejecting a sangha.

Ye te bhikkhū appicchā …pe… te ujjhāyanti khiyyanti vipācenti—
The monks of few desires complained and criticized them,

“kathañhi nāma campāyaṁ bhikkhū evarūpāni kammāni karissanti—
“How can the monks at Campā do such legal procedures?”

adhammena vaggakammaṁ karissanti, adhammena samaggakammaṁ karissanti, dhammena vaggakammaṁ karissanti, dhammapatirūpakena vaggakammaṁ karissanti, dhammapatirūpakena samaggakammaṁ karissanti, ekopi ekaṁ ukkhipissati, ekopi dve ukkhipissati, ekopi sambahule ukkhipissati, ekopi saṅghaṁ ukkhipissati, dvepi ekaṁ ukkhipissanti, dvepi dve ukkhipissanti, dvepi sambahule ukkhipissanti, dvepi saṅghaṁ ukkhipissanti, sambahulāpi ekaṁ ukkhipissanti, sambahulāpi dve ukkhipissanti, sambahulāpi sambahule ukkhipissanti, sambahulāpi saṅghaṁ ukkhipissanti, saṅghopi saṅghaṁ ukkhipissatī”ti.

Atha kho te bhikkhū bhagavato etamatthaṁ ārocesuṁ …pe…
They told the Buddha. …

“saccaṁ kira, bhikkhave, campāyaṁ bhikkhū evarūpāni kammāni karonti—
“Is it true, monks, that the monks at Campā do this?”

adhammena vaggakammaṁ karonti …pe…

saṅghopi saṅghaṁ ukkhipatī”ti?

“Saccaṁ, bhagavā”ti.
“It’s true, Sir.”

Vigarahi buddho bhagavā—
The Buddha rebuked them,

“ananucchavikaṁ, bhikkhave, tesaṁ moghapurisānaṁ ananulomikaṁ appatirūpaṁ assāmaṇakaṁ akappiyaṁ akaraṇīyaṁ.
It’s not suitable for those foolish men, it’s not proper, it’s not worthy of a monastic, it’s not allowable, it’s not to be done.

Kathañhi nāma te, bhikkhave, moghapurisā evarūpāni kammāni karissanti—
How can they do such legal procedures?

adhammena vaggakammaṁ karissanti …pe…

saṅghopi saṅghaṁ ukkhipissati.

Netaṁ, bhikkhave, appasannānaṁ vā pasādāya …pe…
This will affect people’s confidence …”

vigarahitvā …pe…
After rebuking them …

dhammiṁ kathaṁ katvā bhikkhū āmantesi—
he gave a teaching and addressed the monks:

“Adhammena ce, bhikkhave, vaggakammaṁ akammaṁ na ca karaṇīyaṁ,
“Illegitimate legal procedures done by an incomplete assembly are invalid and not to be done.

Cattārimāni, bhikkhave, kammāni—
There are four kinds of legal procedures:

adhammena vaggakammaṁ, adhammena samaggakammaṁ, dhammena vaggakammaṁ, dhammena samaggakammaṁ.
an illegitimate legal procedure done by an incomplete assembly, an illegitimate legal procedure done by a unanimous assembly, a legitimate legal procedure done by an incomplete assembly, and a legitimate legal procedure done by a unanimous assembly.

Tatra, bhikkhave, yadidaṁ adhammena vaggakammaṁ, idaṁ, bhikkhave, kammaṁ adhammattā vaggattā kuppaṁ aṭṭhānārahaṁ;
The illegitimate legal procedure done by an incomplete assembly is reversible and unfit to stand, because it’s illegitimate and the assembly is incomplete.

na, bhikkhave, evarūpaṁ kammaṁ kātabbaṁ, na ca mayā evarūpaṁ kammaṁ anuññātaṁ.
You shouldn’t do such procedures. I haven’t allowed such procedures.

Tatra, bhikkhave, yadidaṁ adhammena samaggakammaṁ, idaṁ, bhikkhave, kammaṁ adhammattā kuppaṁ aṭṭhānārahaṁ;
The illegitimate legal procedure done by a unanimous assembly is reversible and unfit to stand, because it’s illegitimate.

You shouldn’t do such procedures. I haven’t allowed such procedures.

Tatra, bhikkhave, yadidaṁ dhammena vaggakammaṁ, idaṁ, bhikkhave, kammaṁ vaggattā kuppaṁ aṭṭhānārahaṁ;
The legitimate legal procedure done by an incomplete assembly is reversible and unfit to stand, because the assembly is incomplete.

na, bhikkhave, evarūpaṁ kammaṁ kātabbaṁ, na ca mayā evarūpaṁ kammaṁ anuññātaṁ.
You shouldn’t do such procedures. I haven’t allowed such procedures.

Tatra, bhikkhave, yadidaṁ dhammena samaggakammaṁ, idaṁ, bhikkhave, kammaṁ dhammattā samaggattā akuppaṁ ṭhānārahaṁ;
The legitimate legal procedure done by a unanimous assembly is irreversible and fit to stand, because it’s legitimate and the assembly is unanimous.

evarūpaṁ, bhikkhave, kammaṁ kātabbaṁ, evarūpañca mayā kammaṁ anuññātaṁ.
You should do such procedures. I have allowed such procedures.

Tasmātiha, bhikkhave, evarūpaṁ kammaṁ karissāma yadidaṁ dhammena samagganti—
And so, monks, you should train yourselves like this: ‘We will perform legitimate legal procedure done by a unanimous assembly.’”

evañhi vo, bhikkhave, sikkhitabban”ti.

3. Ñattivipannakammādikathā
3. Discussion of legal procedures deficient in motion, etc.

Tena kho pana samayena chabbaggiyā bhikkhū evarūpāni kammāni karonti—
At that time the monks from the group of six did legal procedures such as these:

adhammena vaggakammaṁ karonti, adhammena samaggakammaṁ karonti;
