VII kaṭhinakkhandhako

The Kaṭhina Khandhaka

187. kaṭhinānujānanā (Mv.VII.1.1)

The Allowance of the Kaṭhina [BMC]

[95] tena samayena buddho bhagavā sāvatthiyaṁ viharati jetavane anāthapiṇḍikassa ārāme.

Now at that time the Buddha, the Blessed One, was staying near Sāvatthī, in Jeta’s Grove, Anāthapiṇḍika’s Monastery.

tena kho pana samayena tiṁsamattā pāṭheyyakā [ME: pāveyyakā] bhikkhū sabbe āraññakā sabbe piṇḍapātikā sabbe paṁsukūlikā sabbe tecīvarikā sāvatthiṁ gacchantā bhagavantaṁ dassanāya upakaṭṭhāya vassūpanāyikāya nāsakkhiṁsu sāvatthiyaṁ vassūpanāyikaṁ sambhāvetuṁ antarāmagge sākete vassaṁ upagacchiṁsu.

And at that time thirty monks from Pāva—all of them wilderness dwellers; all of them almsfood eaters; all of them cast-off cloth wearers; all of them triple-robe wearers—going to Sāvatthī to see the Blessed One as the time for entering for the Rains was nearing, were unable to reach Sāvatthī in time to enter for the Rains. Along the road, at Sāketa, they entered for the Rains.

te ukkaṇṭhitarūpā vassaṁ vasiṁsu āsanne va no bhagavā viharati ito chasu yojanesu na ca mayaṁ labhāma bhagavantaṁ dassanāyāti.

They spent the Rains frustrated, (thinking,) “The Blessed One is staying right in the area—six yojanas from here—but we don’t get to see him.”

athakho te bhikkhū vassaṁ vutthā temāsaccayena katāya pavāraṇāya deve vassante udakasaṅgahe udakacikkhalle okapuṇṇehi cīvarehi kilantarūpā yena sāvatthī jetavanaṁ anāthapiṇḍikassa ārāmo yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkamiṁsu upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṁ abhivādetvā ekamantaṁ nisīdiṁsu.

Then the monks, having completed the Rains after the passing of three months, when the Invitation was done, went to Sāvatthī as the devas were raining down, through standing water and mud, with their robes soaked, looking exhausted, and went to Jeta’s Grove, Anāthapiṇḍika’s Monastery, and to the Blessed One. On arrival, they bowed down to him and sat to one side.

(Mv.VII.1.2) āciṇṇaṁ kho panetaṁ buddhānaṁ bhagavantānaṁ āgantukehi bhikkhūhi saddhiṁ paṭisammodituṁ.

It is customary for Buddhas, Blessed Ones, to exchange pleasantries with incoming monks.

athakho bhagavā te bhikkhū etadavoca kacci bhikkhave khamanīyaṁ kacci yāpanīyaṁ kacci samaggā sammodamānā avivadamānā phāsukaṁ vassaṁ vasittha na ca piṇḍakena kilamitthāti.

Then the Blessed One said to the monks “Is it agreeable, monks? Are you getting by? Did you spend the Rains harmoniously, cordially, without dispute, and not have difficulty in going for alms?”

khamanīyaṁ bhagavā yāpanīyaṁ bhagavā samaggā ca mayaṁ bhante sammodamānā avivadamānā vassaṁ vasimhā na ca piṇḍakena kilamimhā

“It’s agreeble, O Blessed One. We’re getting by. And we spent the Rains harmoniously, cordial, without dispute—and we didn’t have difficulty in going for alms.

idha mayaṁ bhante tiṁsamattā pāṭheyyakā bhikkhū sāvatthiṁ āgacchantā bhagavantaṁ dassanāya upakaṭṭhāya vassūpanāyikāya nāsakkhimhā sāvatthiyaṁ vassūpanāyikaṁ sambhāvetuṁ antarāmagge sākete vassaṁ upagacchimhā

“Lord, we thirty monks from Pāva, coming to Sāvatthī to see the Blessed One as the time for entering for the Rains was nearing, were unable to reach Sāvatthī in time to enter for the Rains. Along the road, at Sāketa, we entered for the Rains.

te mayaṁ bhante ukkaṇṭhitarūpā vassaṁ vasimhā āsanne va no bhagavā viharati ito chasu yojanesu na ca mayaṁ labhāma bhagavantaṁ dassanāyāti

“We spent the Rains frustrated, (thinking,) ‘The Blessed One is staying right in the area—six yojanas from here—but we don’t get to see him.’

athakho mayaṁ bhante vassaṁ vutthā temāsaccayena katāya pavāraṇāya deve vassante udakasaṅgahe udakacikkhalle okapuṇṇehi cīvarehi kilantarūpā addhānaṁ āgatāti.

“Then, lord, having completed the Rains after the passing of three months, when the Invitation was done, we came along the road as the devas were raining down, through standing water and mud, with our robes soaked, looking exhausted.”

(Mv.VII.1.3) [96] athakho bhagavā etasmiṁ nidāne etasmiṁ pakaraṇe dhammiṁ kathaṁ katvā bhikkhū āmantesi

Then the Blessed One, having given a Dhamma talk with regard to this cause, to this incident, addressed the monks:

anujānāmi bhikkhave vassaṁ vutthānaṁ bhikkhūnaṁ kaṭhinaṁ attharituṁ.

“I allow that the kaṭhina be spread by monks who have completed the Rains.”

atthatakaṭhinānaṁ vo bhikkhave pañca kappissanti anāmantacāro asamādānacāro gaṇabhojanaṁ yāvadatthacīvaraṁ yo ca tattha cīvaruppādo so nesaṁ bhavissatīti.

“For those who have spread the kaṭhina, five things will be proper: going away without have asked permission (Pc 46), going away without taking (all three robes) (NP 2), a group meal (Pc 32), (undetermined) robe-cloth as long as is needed/wanted (NP 1, NP 3), and whatever robe-cloth arises there will be theirs. [BMC Mv.VIII.24.2 Mv.VIII.24.5-6 Mv.VIII.32]

atthatakaṭhinānaṁ vo bhikkhave imāni pañca kappissanti.

“For those who have spread the kaṭhina, these five things will be proper.

evañca pana bhikkhave kaṭhinaṁ attharitabbaṁ.

“And this, monks, is how the kaṭhina should be spread:

(Mv.VII.1.4) byattena bhikkhunā paṭibalena saṅgho ñāpetabbo

“An experienced and competent monk should inform the Saṅgha:

suṇātu me bhante saṅgho idaṁ saṅghassa kaṭhinadussaṁ uppannaṁ.

“‘Venerable sirs, may the Saṅgha listen to me. This kaṭhina-cloth has arisen for the Saṅgha.

yadi saṅghassa pattakallaṁ saṅgho imaṁ kaṭhinadussaṁ itthannāmassa bhikkhuno dadeyya kaṭhinaṁ attharituṁ.

“‘If the Saṅgha is ready, it should give this kaṭhina-cloth to the monk named so-and-so to spread the kaṭhina.

esā ñatti.

“‘This is the motion.

suṇātu me bhante saṅgho idaṁ saṅghassa kaṭhinadussaṁ uppannaṁ.

“‘Venerable sirs, may the Saṅgha listen to me. This kaṭhina-cloth has arisen for the Saṅgha.

saṅgho imaṁ kaṭhinadussaṁ itthannāmassa bhikkhuno deti kaṭhinaṁ attharituṁ.

“‘The Saṅgha is giving this kaṭhina-cloth to the monk named so-and-so to spread the kaṭhina.

yassāyasmato khamati imassa kaṭhinadussassa itthannāmassa bhikkhuno dānaṁ kaṭhinaṁ attharituṁ so tuṇhassa yassa nakkhamati so bhāseyya.

“‘He to whom the giving of this kaṭhina-cloth to the monk named so-and-so to spread the kaṭhina is agreeable should remain silent. He to whom it is not agreeable should speak.

dinnaṁ idaṁ saṅghena kaṭhinadussaṁ itthannāmassa bhikkhuno kaṭhinaṁ attharituṁ.

“‘This kaṭhina-cloth is given by the Saṅgha to the monk named so-and-so to spread the kaṭhina.

khamati saṅghassa tasmā tuṇhī.

“‘This is agreeable to the Saṅgha, therefore it is silent.

evametaṁ dhārayāmīti.

“‘Thus do I hold it.’

(Mv.VII.1.5) evaṁ kho bhikkhave atthataṁ hoti kaṭhinaṁ evaṁ anatthataṁ

“Monks, in this way is the kaṭhina (properly) spread; in this way is it not (properly) spread:

“These eight are the headings for the dismantling of the kaṭhina: reaching through going away, reaching through (the robe’s) being finished, reaching through a resolution (not to make a robe or to return), reaching through (the cloth’s) being lost, reaching through hearing (of the agreement to end the privileges), reaching through a disappointment of an expectation (for robe-cloth), reaching through going beyond the territory, dismantling together.” [BMC: 1 2]

“This is how there is the residence non-constraint.

ime kho bhikkhave dve kaṭhinassa apalibodhāti.

without permission, without taking,

likewise a group meal,

as long as needed, and what arises

will belong to the spreaders.

The eight headings for dismantling:

pakkamananti naṭṭhānaṁ

sanniṭṭhānañca nāsanaṁ

savanaṁ āsāvacchedi

sīmāsaubbharaṭṭhamī

Reaching through going away, finishing,

a resolution, being lost,

hearing, disappointment of expectation,

the territory, dismantling together as the eighth.

The dismantling of the kaṭhina

is when it’s finished.

na paccessanti mānaso

tassa taṁ kaṭhinuddhāro

sanniṭṭhānantiko bhave

Taking it, outside the territory, “Neither

“I’ll make it.” This happens:

finishing and resolving,

Taking it, “I won’t return,

Without determining—

it neither occurred to him—

the method of the previous three forms.

Taking it, he set out, “I’ll return.

I’ll make it outside the territory.”

“I won’t return,” he made it:

The dismantling of the kaṭhina

is when it’s finished.

savanaṁ sīmatikkamā

saha bhikkhūhi jāyetha

evaṁ paṇṇarasaṁ gati

A resolution, being lost,

hearing, going outside the territory,

with the monks—it would happen:

thus fifteen results.

samādāya vippakatā

samādāya punā tathā

ime te caturo vārā

sabbe paṇṇarasā vidhī

Accepting, unfinished,

and then accepting again:

These four sections

all have fifteen forms.

anāsāya ca āsāya

karaṇīyo ca te tayo

nayato taṁ vijāneyya

tayo dvādasa dvādasa

What’s unexpected and what’s expected,

and business: they’re three.

By the method, it should be discerned:

three of them, in twelves.

apavilāyamāneva

phāsu pañcavidhī tahiṁ

Laying claim,

comfort in five forms there,

constraints and non-constraints:

By this method is the recitation done.
