Four serious faults

  1. taking the head of the row of scholars, i.e.to assume a higher rank than one has
  2. appropriating a tantrika's wealth
  3. accepting the homage of a fully ordained monk
  4. eating the practitioner's food (this only refers to the specific situation where eating the provisions of a practitioner who is short of food and who has decided, "With this amount of food I can practise x number of months," will make his or her food run out prematurely)
