Accordingly, “the obstacle of excitement (auddhatya) and regret (kaukṛtya).—Excitement is a dharma that harms the mind of the monastic (pravrajyā-citta): if a person with concentrated mind (saṃgṛhita-citta) cannot remain faithful, then what can be said of a person with a scattered mind (vikṣipta-citta)? The excited person is as uncontrollable as a mad elephant (gandhagaja) without a hook or a camel (uṣṭra) with pierced nose”.
