Now at that time the Blessed Buddha was dwelling at Kosambî, in the Ghosita Ârâma. And at that time the venerable Khanna, when he had committed a fault, was not willing to atone for that fault [&c., the proceeding in this case being the same, and laid down in the same words as the proceeding in the last case, chapters 25-30].
Here ends the sixth Kamma; namely, the Ukkhepaniya-kamma on not atoning for a fault 1.
376:1 It will be seen from the above chapters, and especially from chapter 27, that the Ukkhepaniya-kamma is an Act, not of expulsion, but only of suspension. The ten cases in which a member of the Order could be expelled are those given above in Mahâvagga I, 60; and the technical word for 'expel' is nâseti.
