The Case of the Man Who had been Whipped[1]
Ven. Khematto Bhikkhu
Alternate translations/layout: 'line by line' Pāḷi - English

(Mv.I.44.1) [106] Now at that time a certain man who had been whipped/caned as punishment went forth among the monks. People criticized and complained and spread it about,

“How can the Sakyan-son contemplatives give the Going-forth to one who has been whipped/caned as punishment?”

They reported the matter to the Blessed One.

“Monks, a man who has been whipped/caned as punishment should not be given the Going-forth. Whoever should give it: an offense of wrong doing.”
