Mulasarvastivada Pacittiya 119
|Chinese (CBETA, T23, no. 1443, p. 1007, b2-12)
||Should any bhikkhuni, knowing that a female* is not fully trained for two years in the six dhammas and six anudhammas, give her the full ordination, [this entails a] pacittiya.
*Vibhanga: female = sikkhamana
||Same place as before [at Savatthi]. At that time, Bhikkhuni Thullananda gave the going forth and the two years of training in the six dhammas and six anudhammas to a female. Then Bhikkhuni Thullananda was going to give her the full ordination before she had completed her training. This female then questioned Bhikkhuni Thullananda, “I have yet to complete the training.” Bhikkhuni Thullananda replied, “When you receive the full ordination, at that time it is as though you have completed your training.” Then, immediately, Bhikkhuni Thullananda gave her the full ordination.
||The bhikkhunis informed the bhikkhus. The bhikkhus then reported this to the Buddha. The Buddha inquired about this and rebuked them. [All should be explained as above, as far as:] “... now I lay down this precept for bhikkhunis, from now on the precept should be spoken as follows:
any bhikkhuni, knowing that a female is not fully trained for two years
in the six dhammas and six anudhammas, give her the full ordination,
[this entails a] pacittiya.”
||‘Bhikkhuni’ means Bhikkhuni Thullananda or other bhikkhunis. ‘Not fully two years’ means not having completed the training in the six dhammas and six anudhammas. ‘Give full ordination’ means carry out the kamma of motion with announcement as fourth. The details of the offenses are explained as above.
