An accompanying recluse

Pacchāsamaṇa (AN 5.112)

Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu endowed with five things should not be taken as the accompanying bhikkhu. What five?

He walks either too fast or too slowly, does not take the bowl and other material. Does not stop the conversation when it comes close to ecclesiastical offences. Interrupts the one who is talking, is not wise, is dull, deaf and dumb. Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu endowed with these five things should not be taken as the accompanying bhikkhu.
