The virtuous deserve the stained robe

A monk may be stained with defilements, bereft of self-control and awareness of reality. Such a monk, though he may wear the ‘yellow robe ’ is not worthy of such a saintly garb.

The one who is self-cleansed of stains,
in moral conduct firmly set,
having restraint and truthfulness
is fit for the stainless robe.

Yo ca vantakasàvassa
sãlesu susamàhito
upeto damasaccena
sa ve kàsàvamarahati.
