English:

Overcoming the limitations in the upper, lower or horizontal direction, increasing or decreasing the limitations or forgetting the same constitute the five transgressions of the sixth restraint.

This sutra deals with the restraint relating to limiting the areas of activities. In order to lay limits over the activities, one is required to specify the area within which he would operate. Such limitations can be laid in respect of different directions. Jainism specifies them in respect of upward, downward and horizontal directions. Transgressing the limitations in those three directions is termed as first three transgressions of this restraint. To increase the extent of operation in one direction by reducing it in another is considered the fourth and forgetting about the limitations is treated as the fifth transgression of this restraint.
