HOLY HAS DISCARDED ALL EVIL
Bahitapapo ti brahmano samacariya samano' ti vuccati
Pabbajay' attano malam tasma pabbajito' ti vuccati.
Once there was a brahmin ascetic in Savatthi. One day, it occurred to him that the Buddha called his disciples 'Pabbajita- bhikkhus' and since he was also a recluse, he should also be called'pabbajita'. So he went to the Buddha and posed his question. The Buddha replied: 'I don't call a recluse apabbajita; apabbajitais one who has uprooted all defilements and impurities of the mind.
- Having subdued all evil.
- One who leaves the household life for the homeless life of a recluse; in Buddhism it means one who has given up the impurities of the household life to become a bhikkhu.
