Excerpt from Buddhist Legends, Vol. 2: Translated From the Original Pali d104 of the Dhammapada Commentary; Translation of Books 3 to 12 Matika's mother superintended the erection of a monastery to serve as their place of residence, presented it to them, and the monks took up their residence there. On a certain day they met together and admonished each other as follows, Brethren, it behooves us not to live the life of Heedlessness, for before us stand the Eight Great Hells with gates wide open, even as our own houses. N ow we have come hither thus, having received a Subject of Meditation from the living Buddha. And the favor Of the Buddhas cannot be won by a deceitful person, even though he walk in their very footsteps. Only by doing the will of the Buddhas can their favor be won. Therefore be Heedful. Two monks may neither stand nor sit in any one place. In the evening we shall meet together to wait upon the Elder, and early in the morning we shall meet together when it is time to go the rounds for alms. At other times two of us must never be together. If, however, a monk be taken sick, [291] let him come to the monastery court and strike a bell. At the signal given by the stroke on the bell, we will come together and provide a remedy for him. Having made this agreement, they entered upon residence.
