### 20.

1. Now at that time a certain Bhikkhu had committed numerous Sa*m*ghâdisesa offences, one of which he had concealed for one day, one for two days, one for three days, [and so on down to] and one for ten days.

He told the Bhikkhus, saying, 'I have committed, (&c., as before, down to) and one for ten days. What now shall I do?'

They told this thing to the Blessed One.

'Let then the Sa*m*gha, O Bhikkhus, impose upon that Bhikkhu an inclusive probation according to one of those offences which has been concealed for ten days 1.'

'Now thus, O Bhikkhus, ought it to be imposed.'

### Footnotes

409:1 From this and what follows it is clear that however many are the offences, and however various the periods of concealment, the probation is only to last for the same period as the longest of the concealments has lasted. Thus the Samanta Pâsâdikâ says here: agghasamodhâno nâma sambahulâsu âpattîsu yâ ekâ vâ dve vâ tisso vâ sambahulâ vâ âpattiyo sabba*k*irapa*t*i*k**kh*annâyo tâsa*m* agghena samodhâya tâsa*m* rattipari*k**kh*edavasena avasesâna*m* ûnatarapa*t*i*k**kh*annâna*m* âpattîna*m* parivâso diyyati.
