    took from..

    Hello.

    I have come across a line with take from as below and it does not have an object for take.
    Does it have any specific meaning?
    Peta means kind of a devil by the way.

    She said to him calmly, “What you saw was a Peta and this Peta was a relative of yours.”

    The man said, “None of my relatives would ever be reborn a Peta.” She said nothing in return and he asked, “Why was he reborn a Peta?”
    She said, “He was a lay person working at a temple, but he took from the temple.”

    Thanks for your help!

    without knowing what a "Peta" is, I can only assume that the lay person either stole something from the temple, or, the lay person may have learned (and, in a way took something, an education) something at the temple.

    Gillnetter,

    Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I thought the same.
    It is good to know my understanding was not wrong.
