11 Bhikkhūnīs piled into a mini bus and I want to know why?
In Pli-tb-bi-vb-pc40 (Bhikkhuni Pācittiyā 40) the people where displeased and grumbled because of what?
Tena kho pana samayena bhikkhuniyo tattheva rājagahe vassaṃ vasanti, tattha hemantaṃ, tattha gimhaṃ. Manussā ujjhāyanti khiyyanti vipācenti—“āhundarikā bhikkhunīnaṃ disā andhakārā, na imāsaṃ disā pakkhāyantī”ti.
The English translation doesn’t make it clear at all. Saying ‘the 4 quarters are blocked the 4 quarters can’t be seen’.
I took a stab at the Pāli but andhakāra (bewildered) seems to describe how I feel.
Is it that the nuns stayed for the hot, cold AND rainy season and it became too crowded?
Thanks and mettā
