Reduced Consumption

Eating less than what one's hunger is.

To have food and other things by begging is not due to poverty or to get away from labour but to have a better control on oneself. One must have utmost consideration during begging. The food or drink should not be tainted and it should not hurt the giver. Begging should be done as a bumble bee. The bumble bee collects juice from different flowers in a small quantity without discrimination; similarly eatables should be accepted from different houses and a little quantity without hurting any body and without discrimination of poor and rich.

Monks have to keep fast when conditions are not favourable for colleting food by begging.
