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.

The Vinaya Pitaka.
"Whenever we feel that we are definitely right, so much so that we refuse to open up to anything or anybody else, right there we are wrong. It becomes wrong view. When suffering arises, where does it arise from? The cause is wrong view, the fruit of that being suffering. If it was right view it wouldn't cause suffering." - Ajahn Chah
"Remember you dont meditate to get anything, but to get rid of things. We do it, not with desire, but with letting go. If you want anything, you wont find it." - Ajahn Chah

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