which is to be crossed by wading through it up to the knees; or

bhavati. It might also mean, in the right way. Another explanation
is yathataryam. or holes to fit them, or moats or caves, they
should, in case there be a byway, choose it, and not go on
straight. (14) The Kevalin says: This is the reason: Walking there,
the mendicant might stumble or fall down; when he stumbles or falls
down, he might get hold of trees, shrubs, plants, creepers, grass,
copsewood, or sprouts to extricate himself. He should ask
travellers who meet him, to lend a hand; then he may circumspectly
lean upon it and extricate himself; so he may circumspectly wander
from village to village. (15) If a monk or a nun perceive in their
way (transports of) corn, waggons, cars, a friendly or hostile
army1, some encamped troops, they should, in case there be a byway,
circumspectly choose it, and not walk on straight. One trooper
might say to another: 'O long-lived one this 5ramawa is a spy upon
the army; take hold of him with your arms, and drag him hither '
The other might take hold of. the mendicant with his arms and drag
him on. He should neither be glad nor sorry for it, &c. (see
3); then he may circumspectly wander from village to village. (16)
If on his road travellers meet him and say, 'O long-lived.Sramawa
how large is this village or scot-free town, &c.? how many
horses, elephants, beggars, men dwell in it? is there much food,
water, population, corn? is there little food, water, population,
corn?' he should not answer such questions if asked, nor ask them
himself. This is the whole duty, &c. Thus I say. (17) 1
