Monastic Rules

Postby fragrant herbs » Wed Jun 29, 2011 12:07 am

Can someone tell me where in the Pali Canon is the list of monastic rules? I know that monks have over 200 and nuns over 300. I once read the books that Thanissaro Bhikkhu published. Thank you.

Thank you so much Bhikkhu Pesala. I had read both of the code books years ago when I used to attend a monastery.
