Sarvastivada Pacittiya 109
Chinese (CBETA, T23, no. 1435, p. 325, c25-p. 326, a11) English
若比丘尼。滿十二歲已嫁女。不作屬和上尼羯磨。畜為眾。波夜提。 Should any bhikkhuni bring up as one of the assembly a married woman fully twelve years old without the kamma of requesting a preceptor, [this entails a] pacittiya.
佛在舍衛國。爾時偷蘭難陀比丘尼。滿十二歲已嫁女。未作屬和上尼羯磨。便畜作眾。 [Once], the Buddha was at Savatthi. At that time, Bhikkhuni Thullananda ordained a married woman who was fully twelve years of age as one of the assembly without the kamma of requesting a preceptor.
是中有比丘尼。少欲知足行頭陀。聞是事心不喜。種種因緣呵責。云何名比丘尼。滿十二歲已嫁女。未作屬和上尼羯磨。便畜作眾。 [Back then] there were bhikkhunis with little needs, who were contented and practised dutanga. They heard this and they were not pleased and criticized in many ways, “What is the purpose of being a bhikkhuni, how can she ordain a married woman who is fully twelve years of age as one of the assembly without the kamma of requesting a preceptor?”
種種因緣呵已向佛廣說。佛以是事集二部僧。知而故問。汝實作是事不。答言。實作世尊。佛以種種因緣呵責言。云何名比丘尼。滿十二歲已嫁女。未作屬和上尼羯磨。便畜作眾。 After they criticized her in many ways, these bhikkhunis went to report to the Buddha. The Buddha gathered the two assemblies. Even though he knew [the answer], he asked Bhikkhuni Thullananda, “Is it true?” “Yes, it is true, Bhagavat.” The Buddha criticized her in many ways, saying, “What is the purpose of being a bhikkhuni, how can you ordain a married woman who is fully twelve years of age as one of the assembly without the kamma of requesting a preceptor?”
種種因緣呵已語諸比丘。以十利故。與比丘尼結戒。從今是戒應如是說。 After he had criticized her in many ways, the Buddha spoke to the bhikkkhus. “For the ten benefits, I lay down the rules for bhikkhunis. From now on the precept should spoken as follows:
若比丘尼。滿十二歲已嫁女。未作屬和上尼羯磨。便畜作眾。波逸提。 Should any bhikkhuni bring up as one of the assembly a married woman fully twelve years old without the kamma of requesting a preceptor, [this entails a] pacittiya.”
波逸提者。燒煮覆障。若不悔過能障礙道。是中犯者。若比丘尼。滿十二歲已嫁女。未作屬和上尼羯磨。便畜作眾。波逸提。隨畜隨得爾所波逸提。 ‘One who entails a pacittiya’ means [she will] burn, boil, be obstructed, if [she] does not regret and change, [this] will hinder the path. ‘One who commited the offense’ means should any bhikkhuni ordain a married woman who is fully twelve years of age as one of the assembly without the kamma of requesting a preceptor, [this entails a] pacittiya. The remainder of the assembly involved commits a pacittiya.
