Description

Preface

The Pali Patimokkha, which contains the regulations for the outward life of the Buddhist Monks and Nuns, has been rightly looked upon as the oldest and the most important of the Vinaya texts. It is divided into two parts which very closely resemble each other- in fact several rules are identical in wording- called Bhikkhu Patimokkha and Bhikkuni Patimokkha. The first contains 227 rules and the second 311. They were rehearsed every fortnight in the Buddhist Congregation, and as such were learnt by heart by all members of the fraternity. The Patimokkha has several Sanskrit versions also when the Buddhist Canon was edited in Sanskrit.

The book not being available to the B.A. and M.A. students of Pali, I have edited it here for their convenience, I had a mind to give a Glossarial Index, which would incorporate extracts from Pali Commentaries like Kankhavitarani but as I found that even after doing this, the text would remain obscure unless it was fully annotated- and perhaps translated, I have abandoned the idea for the present. Some time I mean to publish a second part containing an Introduction, Translation and Notes.

Finally I take this opportunity to express my thanks to several friends, who helped me one way or the other in bringing out this edition and present this book to lovers of Buddhism. The readers will please excuse the editor for a few misprints when they allow the editor to submit that the work has been done during the scanty leisure of an extremely heavy worked life.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
