Vin ii 105
The Khuddakavatthukkhandhaka, “the Chapter with a short section,” contains a large and diverse number of minor rules, including rules on allowable buildings. A recurrent theme is that luxurious items and sensual indulgence are not allowed. The verses to protect against dangerous insects and snakes, the so-called Khandhaparitta, are found here. The procedure of “overturning the bowl” is described, a procedure used against lay people who act against the interest of Buddhism. This chapter also includes the much-debated instruction for monastics to learn the Teachings by using the Buddha’s own way of expression.
