Introduction to the Patimokkha Rules

Communal Harmony [go up]

Community — in trying to form a schismatic group or in taking up a
position that can lead to schism is a saºghādisesa offense. (Sg 10)

To persist — after the third announcement of a formal rebuke in the
Community — in supporting a potential schismatic is a saºghādisesa

oneself is a saºghādisesa offense. (Sg 13)

When a trustworthy female lay follower accuses a bhikkhu of having
committed a pārājika, saºghādisesa, or pācittiya offense while sitting
alone with a woman in a private, secluded place, the Community should
investigate the charge and deal with the bhikkhu in accordance with
whatever he admits to having done. (Ay 1)

When a trustworthy female lay follower accuses a bhikkhu of having
committed a saºghādisesa or pācittiya offense while sitting alone with
a woman in an unsecluded but private place, the Community should
investigate the charge and deal with the bhikkhu in accordance with
whatever he admits to having done. (Ay 2)

Telling an unordained person of another bhikkhu’s serious offense —
unless one is authorized by the Community to do so — is a pācittiya
offense. (Pc 9)

Persistently replying evasively or keeping silent in order to
conceal one’s own offenses when being questioned in a meeting of the
Community — after a formal charge of evasive speech or being
frustrating has been brought against one — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 12)

If a Community official is innocent of bias: Criticizing him within earshot of another bhikkhu is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 13)

Community out in the open: Leaving its immediate vicinity without
putting it away, arranging to have it put away, or taking leave is a
pācittiya offense. (Pc 14)

Community: Departing from the monastery without putting it away,
arranging to have it put away, or taking leave is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 15)

dwelling belonging to the Community, with the sole purpose of making
him uncomfortable and forcing him to leave, is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 16)

unplanked loft in a dwelling belonging to the Community, is a pācittiya

another bhikkhu for a breach of the training rules is a pācittiya
offense. (Pc 54)

Agitating to re-open an issue, knowing that it was properly dealt with, is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 63)

Not informing another bhikkhu of a serious offense that one knows a
third bhikkhu has committed — out of a desire to protect the third
bhikkhu either from having to undergo the penalty or from the jeering
remarks of other bhikkhus — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 64)

Acting as the preceptor in the full Acceptance (ordination) of a
person one knows to be less than 20 years old is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 65)

Refusing — after the third announcement of a formal rebuke in a
meeting of the Community — to relinquish the evil view that there is
nothing wrong in intentionally transgressing the Buddha’s ordinances is
a pācittiya offense. (Pc 68)

Communing, affiliating, or lying down under the same roof with a
bhikkhu who has been suspended and not been restored — knowing that
such is the case — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 69)

Befriending, receiving services from, communing, or lying down under
the same roof with an expelled novice — knowing that he has been
expelled — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 70)

rule formulated in the Vinaya, saying something as a ploy to excuse
oneself from training under the rule is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 71)

Criticizing the discipline in the presence of another bhikkhu, in hopes of preventing its study, is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 72)

Using half-truths to deceive others into believing that one is

the Pāṭimokkha in full three times, and a transaction exposing one’s
deceit has been brought against one — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 73)

Giving a blow to another bhikkhu when impelled by anger — except in self-defense — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 74)

broken a rule, when one has no other purpose in mind, is a pācittiya

with the intention of using what they say against them — is a pācittiya

in accordance with the rule — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 79)

invalidating it — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 80)

After participating in a Community transaction giving robe-cloth to
a Community official: Complaining that the Community acted out of
favoritism is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 81)

When the Community is dealing formally with an issue, the full
Community must be present, as must all the individuals involved in the
issue; the proceedings must follow the patterns set out in the Dhamma
and Vinaya. (As 1)

If the Community unanimously believes that a bhikkhu is innocent of
a charge made against him, they may issue a transaction declaring him
innocent on the basis of his memory of the events. (As 2)

If the Community unanimously believes that a bhikkhu was insane
while committing offenses against the rules, they may issue a
transaction absolving him of any responsibility for the offenses. (As 3)

If a bhikkhu commits an offense, he should willingly undergo the
appropriate penalty in line with what he actually did and the actual
seriousness of the offense. (As 4)

If an important dispute cannot be settled by a unanimous decision,
it should be submitted to a vote. The opinion of the majority, if in
accord with the Dhamma and Vinaya, is then considered decisive. (As 5)

If a bhikkhu admits to an offense only after being interrogated in a
formal meeting, the Community should carry out a further-punishment
transaction against him, rescinding it only when he has mended his
ways. (As 6)

If, in the course of a dispute, both sides act in ways unworthy of
contemplatives, and the sorting out of the penalties would only prolong
the dispute, the Community as a whole may make a blanket confession of
its light offenses. (As 7)

— when one or both are sexually aroused, and when another bhikkhu is
not present — is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 43)

Watching a field army — or similar large military force — on active
duty, unless there is a suitable reason, is a pācittiya offense. (Pc 48)

view  talk  edit

There are five nikayas (collections) of suttas:

The Vinaya Pitaka, the first division of the Tipitaka,
is the textual framework upon which the monastic community (Sangha) is
built. It includes not only the rules governing the life of every
Theravada bhikkhu (monk) and bhikkhuni (nun), but also a
host of procedures and conventions of etiquette that support harmonious
relations, both among the monastics themselves, and between the
monastics and their lay supporters, upon whom they depend for all their
material needs.

When the Buddha first established the Sangha, the community
initially lived in harmony without any codified rules of conduct. As
the Sangha gradually grew in number and evolved into a more complex
society, occasions inevitably arose when a member would act in an
unskillful way. Whenever one of these cases was brought to the Buddha’s
attention, he would lay down a rule establishing a suitable punishment
for the offense, as a deterrent to future misconduct. The Buddha’s
standard reprimand was itself a powerful corrective:

It is not fit, foolish man, it is not becoming, it is not proper, it
is unworthy of a recluse, it is not lawful, it ought not to be done.
How could you, foolish man, having gone forth under this Dhamma and
Discipline which are well-taught, [commit such and such offense]?… It
is not, foolish man, for the benefit of un-believers, nor for the
increase in the number of believers, but, foolish man, it is to the
detriment of both unbelievers and believers, and it causes wavering in

The Book of the Discipline, Part I, by I.B. Horner (London: Pali Text Society, 1982), pp. 36-37.

The monastic tradition and the rules upon which it is built are
sometimes naïvely criticized — particularly here in the West — as
irrelevant to the “modern” practice of Buddhism. Some see the Vinaya as
a throwback to an archaic patriarchy, based on a hodge-podge of ancient
rules and customs — quaint cultural relics that only obscure the
essence of “true” Buddhist practice. This misguided view overlooks one
crucial fact: it is thanks to the unbroken lineage of monastics who
have consistently upheld and protected the rules of the Vinaya for
almost 2,600 years that we find ourselves today with the luxury of
receiving the priceless teachings of Dhamma. Were it not for the
Vinaya, and for those who continue to keep it alive to this day, there
would be no Buddhism.

It helps to keep in mind that the name the Buddha gave to the spiritual path he taught was “Dhamma-vinaya” — the Doctrine (Dhamma) and Discipline (Vinaya)
— suggesting an integrated body of wisdom and ethical training. The
Vinaya is thus an indispensable facet and foundation of all the
Buddha’s teachings, inseparable from the Dhamma, and worthy of study by
all followers — lay and ordained, alike. Lay practitioners will find in
the Vinaya Pitaka many valuable lessons concerning human nature,
guidance on how to establish and maintain a harmonious community or
organization, and many profound teachings of the Dhamma itself. But its
greatest value, perhaps, lies in its power to inspire the layperson to
consider the extraordinary possibilities presented by a life of true
renunciation, a life lived fully in tune with the Dhamma.

bhikkhunis, along with the “origin story” for each one. These rules are
summarized in the Patimokkha, and amount to 227 rules for the bhikkhus, 311 for the bhikkhunis. The Patimokkkha rules are grouped as follows:

Janahitha Chetana
Andolan Phase II

Second phase
that is being held from November 1 to December 31 of 
BSP’s 3-month-long campaign takes off

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Monday launched its three-month
long “Janhit Chetna” campaign across the nation.

the campaign is a prelude to the Lok Sabha elections, it will
also set the tone for the Assembly elections to various states, due in
the coming months. During this campaign, BSP cadres highlighted the
achievements of the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh and popularised
the success of the social engineering formula that catapulted the BSP
to a majority in the UP Assembly elections.

campaign has been designed to corner the UPA government on
issues of price rise and unemployment. It also explained to voters
why the BSP withdrew support from the UPA government on the issue of
nuclear deal.

campaign was two-pronged. On one hand,  the success of social engineering
and underline the party’s new ideology of Sarvjan Hitaye, Sarvjan Sukhaye among
the people was highlighted and made an effort to bring all caste group on one
platform. On the other hand,They planed to highlight the governance of the
Mayawati government across the country and contrast it with the lack of
governance in non-BSP-ruled states and also the UPA government,” .

those were specific to particular states was included in the campaign, after
clearance from the party high command.

the first phase of the “Janhit Chetna” campaign that was be held from September
1 to October 31, the BSP organised dharnas and
demonstrations at all district headquarters.

were held on different dates and senior leaders and ministers participated in

the second phase that will be held from November 1 to December 31, the party
will organise similar demonstrations in all Vidhan Sabha segments.

idea is to ensure that all districts and all Assembly segments
are covered during the campaign. In the final phase, demonstrations on
larger scales will be held at all state capitals and Ms Mayawati is
expected to address most of the meetings in this phase.

the campaign, the BSP will “inform” its voters how the
Congress has been misusing its power at the
Centre to influence the CBI and harass the UP chief minister.

is a clear attempt to check the growth of BSP and prevent Ms
Mayawati from becoming the Prime Minister after the Lok Sabha
elections. The BJP is hand in glove with the Congress on this issue but
we will expose their conspiracy before the public,”

listing the achievements of the Mayawati government will be distributed during
the three-month long campaign.

of nature.

Origin of name of Karnataka

Mysore PalaceThe name Karnataka comes from the Kannada

words karu and nadu meaning elevated land. Karu nadu can also be read

as Karu which means black and nadu which means region, may be with

referance to the black cotton soil found in the Bayaluseemae region of

Karnataka. During the time of British rule, the words Carnatic or

Karnatak were used to describe this part of the region in general.

Karnataka got its name in 1973.

History of Karnataka

Karnataka has been ruled successively by the Buddhist, Hindu and Muslin
dynasties. Jainism too established its roots here. During the first
millennium AD, the whole of Karnataka was dominated by power struggles
between the various kingdoms that controlled Western Deccan. In the
Medival era, the Muslim invasions from the North forced the fractured
states of the south into close alliance with the Vijanagars who emerged
as the landlords. In 1761, the Muslim campaigner Halider Ali with
french support seized the throne. His son Tipu Sultan turned Mysore
into a major force in the south before he was killed by the British in
1799 at the battle of Srirangapatanam. In 1830 the British appointed a
Commission to rule in their place. Routed in the nineties. After which
the state was ruled successively by the Janata Dal, BJP and Congress

Geography of Karnataka

    Supreme Court bench declines to hear Uttar Pradesh plea

    Delhi, Nov 12 (IANS) The Supreme Court Wednesday declined to hear a
    petition by the Uttar Pradesh government seeking the transfer to the
    apex court of cases pending before the Allahabad High Court challenging
    its notification to demolish government buildings to set up memorials
    to the late Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) founder Kashi Ram.

    A bench of Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice Markandey Katju referred the matter to another bench.

    It was hearing the petition seeking the transfer of 10 writ
    petitions challenging the state government’s action before the high

    During the hearing, Katju said the court was politically neutral and
    was not influenced by any of the political parties - be it Uttar
    Pradesh’s ruling BSP, the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

    He asked senior counsel Abhishek Singhvi, appearing for the
    petitioner, Gomti Nagar Jan Kalyan Maha Samiti, to spell out which
    statute was being violated by the action of the Uttar Pradesh

    He said the court could intervene only if there was any violation of
    law and added that a popularly elected government was entitled to
    undertake any construction activity within the law. ‘If you feel
    aggrieved by its actions, then vote it out,’ he said.

    The petitioner said there could not be any objection if the
    demolition of the government structures were meant to create public
    utilities. But razing government buildings and encroaching on public
    parks for building memorials to the late BSP leader, and that too at
    colossal expenditure from the exchequer, could not be described as an
    act of public utility, the petitioner argued.
