When a monk or a nun wishes to go
to a pure place for study, they should not accept one which is
infected by eggs or living beings.; for it is impure and
unacceptable. But if that place for study to which they wish to
go, is free from eggs or living beings, they may accept it; for
it is pure and acceptable.
In this way all that has been said in the corresponding passage
about couches should be repeated here as far as 'water-plants.'
If parties of two, three, four, or five (mendicants) resolve to
go to the place for study, they should not embrace or hug, bite
with their teeth or scratch with their nails each other's body.
This is the whole duty.
Thus I say.
