"One meal a day" rule ought to be bent seasonally in addition to conditionally[edit]

In the crab season, if bardo deliverances are not sufficiently conducted in the monastries where outside people are favourite to eating crabs there will be a big chance for monks and nuns to catch up karmic illness. Under this kind of environment, the rule ought to be bent to prevent the sickness happening. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.62.138.24 (talk) 02:40, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

To counter the defects of eating meal at night, alternative methods may need to be employed such as both showering in the morning and at night, changing liniens frequently to keep body and aura clean —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.62.138.24 (talk) 02:47, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Additional possessions[edit]

The following sentences are very confusing, and probably quite misleading, for a new reader: "In modern practice, the bhikkhuni lineage died out in some Theravada communities, having failed to establish themselves in the Vajrayana communities of Tibet and Nepal, and currently exists only in a few orders." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.79.62.16 (talk) 16:01, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

It was a little torturous. I've rewritten it to be more clear. --Clay Collier (talk) 01:36, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
