Vinaya Anthology

Postby bodom » Sat Jun 04, 2011 3:39 pm

Im looking for an Vinaya anthology that contains the suttas that were spoken by the Buddha on the occasion of the rules being laid down. Any recommendations?

There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Have you looked at the PTS English editions of the Khandhaka and the SuttaVibhanga?
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

Hi daverupa

I have. The PTS edition of the SuttaVibhanga is contained in 3 volumes at almost $70 a book. Don't really have the money at this time and was hoping to find a cheaper alternative. I haven't looked into the Khandhaka yet. I will have a look thank you.

I recommend the Khandhaka from the PTS (published as the Mahavagga and Culavagga, vols. 4 & 5, of The Book of Discipline) as it is the earliest Vinaya text (the Patimokkha is earlier, but the SuttaVibhanga containing it is later). Still fairly pricey.

Thanks tilt, great book, I own it. Im looking for something a bit more comprehensive though.

On http://www.archive.org and http://www.scribd.com you can find Horner's and Rhys Davids' translations of the Vinaya texts. I think there all on there.

As a point of clarification, the books titled "Vinaya Texts" vols 1-3 was translated by T.W. Rhys Davids and Herman Oldenberg. [1881-5] and seems to contain the patimokkha(rules only no stories) and the Khandakas. The Khandakas do contain background stories, but not to the patimokkha rules. If you scroll down on this page you can find them
http://www.sacred-texts.com/bud/index.htm

I believe a print on demand company called Forgotten Books will sell you a hard copy.

I. B. Horner translated both the Suttavibhangha and the Khandakas(Under the title Book of Discipline) , but I don't think they are in the public domain yet. My recollection is that there are several PTS scanned books on archive.org claiming to be the Book of Discipline but when you download them they are something else.

Ajahn Thanissaro's Buddhist Monastic Code will often have a summary of the origin stories, although not for every rule. Certainly enough to give you an idea.

Hope that is helpful(and correct :-))
