Pattanikujjana Sutta

Eight reasons for which the Saṅgha is entitled to turn the begging bowl upside down, as an act of censure, refusing alms from a particular lay person or persons. This is done by a formal act of the Saṅgha. If the lay person mends his or her ways the formal act can be revoked.

  1. They strive to prevent bhikkhus receiving offerings,
  2. They strive for the harm of bhikkhus,
  3. They strive for the non-residence of bhikkhus,
  4. They abuse bhikkhus,
  5. They strive to divide bhikkhus from each others,
  6. They speak dispraise of the Buddha,
  7. They speak dispraise of the Dhamma,
  8. They speak dispraise of the Saṅgha.
