Every left-home person, whether male or female, should follow the schedule of the assembly. Unless you are on temple business, you may not casually go out. Before, there was a woman who employed various schemes to establish liaisons with the nuns and lay women at the City after she came here. She would drive the left-home and lay people to go shopping outside the City in secret, without informing the Office. For that reason, no lay person may casually give rides to residents of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. You may not violate the rules and go out without informing the Office. If I find out anyone doing this, both the driver and the passengers will be expelled from the City. I will not allow such unruly people to live here.
Furthermore, lay people should not gossip all day long, talking about this or talking about that. That is impermissible. This is one of the rules of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. I will not allow that kind of woman to live in the City. It is also against the rules for residents of the City to secretly drive people out shopping. If you do that, you will not be allowed to live in the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas!
