The Bhikkhus Rules
A Guide for Laypeople
Eating Alms Food
When eating, a bhikkhu should:
- eat his food methodically, from one side of the bowl to the other.
- eat bean curry only in proper proportion to the rice.
- level his rice before eating from it.
- refrain from throwing away — in an inhabited area — bowl rinsing water that has grains of rice in it. [Sekhiya]
