TIPIṬAKA - Part 93:
Bhikkhunivibhaṅga, Saṅghàdisesa I

[00:27:11]  March 7th, 2023

This is Part 93 of my recital of the "Tipiṭaka," the "Three Baskets" of pre-sectarian Buddhism, as translated into English from the original Pali Language.

In this episode, we'll begin reading "Saṅghàdisesa," the first part of "Bhikkhunivibhaṅga," from the "Vinaya Piṭaka," the first of the three "Piṭaka," or "Baskets."

"Bhikkhunivibhaṅga" literally means "Nuns Analysis," meaning the rules for Buddhist nuns. "Saṅghàdisesa" literally means "Formal Meeting," referring to the meeting of the nuns which must occur if a nun breaks one of these rules. During the meeting, the nun must admit in front of everyone that they broke the rule, and they are then considered on probation, and to be starting over at the beginning of their journey toward enlightenment.
