Duties of one being sent back to the beginning

BD.5.50 Now at that time monks who deserved to be sent back to the beginning[1] consented to regular monks greeting them … = Kd.12.1.1, Kd.12.1.2. Instead of monks under probation read monks who deserve to be sent back to the beginning … ‘Do not let them find out about me’. Monks, a monk who deserves to be sent back to the beginning should not go from a residence where there are monks to a residence where there are monks, except with a regular (monk), unless there is a danger … from a residence or from what is not a residence where there are monks to a residence or to what is not a residence where there are monks, except with a regular (monk), unless there is a danger. Monks, a monk who deserves to be sent back to the beginning may go from a residence where there are monks to a residence where there are monks … from a residence or from what is not a residence where there are monks to a residence or to what is not a residence where there are monks if the monks there should belong to the same communion and if he knows, ‘I am able to arrive this very day.’

Monks, a monk who deserves to be sent back to the beginning should not stay in a residence under one roofing with a regular monk … = Kd.12.1.4 … he should not pace up and down in a place for pacing up and down in if he is pacing up and down on the ground. Vin.2.35

Monks, a monk who deserves to be sent back to the beginning should not stay in a residence under one roofing with a monk under probation … with a senior monk[2] … with a monk who deserves mānatta (discipline) … with a monk undergoing mānatta (discipline) … with a monk who deserves rehabilitation … he should not pace up and down in a place to pace up and down in if he is pacing up and down on the ground.

If, monks, one who deserves to be sent back to the beginning as the fourth (member) should grant probation, should send back to the beginning, should inflict mānatta (discipline), if, as the twentieth (member), he should rehabilitate, it is not a (formal) act and ought not to be carried out.[3]
