Description: This work is a penetrating analysis of a heretofore neglected, yet centrally important portion of the Pali Canon. The author has also examined the significance of the principal rituals of Buddhist monasticism as they are prescribed within the vinaya text. This work, written from the perspective of the history of religious approach, contributes significantly to the increased understanding of the dynamics of the Buddhist religion in its formulative stages.
