Monks’ rules and their analysis
Monks’ Training (Sekhiya) 32
‘Thinking of the bowl will I eat almsfood,’ is a training to be observed.”
One should eat almsfood thinking of the bowl. Whoever out of disrespect eats almsfood looking about here and there, there is an offence of wrong-doing.
There is no offence if it is unintentional … if he is the first wrong-doer.
