You can see many different religious orders, people copy the Masters and do all kinds of rituals and all kinds of ways, just to entrap people in there and make them busy with just rituals; useless, all kinds of useless things, wasting their time and obstructing them from finding the real Master, to be liberated. The reason He tells all this, we also have to thank the Reverend Bodhisattva, high-soul Ananda also. Many things the Buddha taught because Ananda asked. So, he had great compassion also. If Ananda had not asked, we would not have all this. Maybe Buddha did not think about it. And if Ananda had not asked on behalf of the mother of Buddha, then we would not have any nuns, Buddhist nuns, nowadays.
