Description: This work contains two significant Buddhist monastic disciplinary texts translated into English for the first time. One of the texts is that of a very early Buddhist school which first appeared in the 4th century, and the other is one not mentioned in the records until the 7th century CE. Two introductory chapters give an overview of the rise of Buddhist monasticism and describe how the two sutras were found and edited.
