The Buddhist Monastic Code

The Buddhist Monastic Code I and II is an impressive work both in virtue  and extent. On nearly 2.000 pages the rules of monks in the Theravada traditions are outlined. This book is written both for the ones seeking monastic life and the bhikkus who have devoted their life to it. It will also benefit other people who have dealings with the bhikkus—so that they will be able to find gathered in one location as much essential information as possible on just what the rules do and do not entail. Students of Early Buddhism, Theravādin history, or contemporary Theravādin issues should also find this book interesting, as should anyone who is serious about the practice of the Dhamma and wants to see how the Buddha worked out the ramifications of Dhamma practice in daily life.
