TIPIṬAKA - Part 17:
Suttavibhaṅga, Pārājika IV

[00:28:36]  June 24th, 2022

This is Part 17 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 finish reading "Pārājika," the first part of "Suttavibhaṅga," which is the first part of the "Vinaya Piṭaka," the first of the three "Piṭaka," or "Baskets."

"Suttavibhaṅga" means "Rule Analysis," and "Pārājika" literally means "Defeats," referring to the most important rules of monkhood in pre-sectarian Buddhism, for which one can be expelled from the original Buddhist Sangha.
