(see sapadanacarika dhutayga).

The Noble Practitioner: The bhikkhu who is a noble practitioner of the sapadanacarika dhutayga doesn accept any food offered by someone coming in advance out of a house in front of which he hasn passed yet, offered by someone coming late out of a house in front of which he has already passed, or offered by stay inn (or a shop, etc.). He only accepts food offered by someone coming out of a house in front of which he is stopping.

A bhikkhu who is a noble practitioner of this dhutayga can also accept food offered while giving his bowl to the person who, coming out of the house in front of which he stopped, wishes to offer him some food. Indeed, the renown mahathera Maha Kassapa, who is unequalled in the field of the practice of the 13 dhutaygas, once gave his bowl to the king Sakka, so that the later easily pours food into it.
