Buddhist Councils - General Knowledge Today

The Dipavamsa criticizes the Mahasangitikas who are the same as the Mahasanghikas for rejecting various first buddhist council as non-canonical: The Mahasanghikas' own vinaya gives essentially the same account of the Second Council as the others, i. The later Mahavibhasa develops this story into a lurid smear campaign against the Mahasanghika founder, who first buddhist council identifies as " Mahadeva ".

This version of events emphasizes the purity of the Kasmiri Sarvastivadins, who are portrayed as descended from the arahants who fled persecution due to Mahadeva. Fourth Buddhist Councils[ edit ] Main article: The monk Subhadda, a former barber, who had ordained late in life, upon hearing that the Buddha had first buddhist council, voiced his resentment at having to abide by all the rules for monks laid down by the Buddha.


Many monks lamented the passing of the Buddha and were deeply grieved. However, the Elder Mahakassapa heard Subhadda say: This statement is very valuable. What does the statement here refer to, which says one thousand Bhikshus staying outside were summoned in?

Does the present text refer to that? first buddhist council

A certain group of six Bhikshus went so far to the extreme as to say that first buddhist council the World-Honored One were still living, he would have first buddhist council at once abolished.

The text then raises the question: What is the Tripitaka? Therefore, out of first buddhist council compassion for all beings and in accordance with the spirit of Buddha, you shall compile the Buddhadharmapitaka.

He addressed the Sangha: Here, as well as further on, five hundred Arhats are mentioned. Is this the number of the Arhats assembled in the Convocation?

If so, it is in direct contradiction to the above statement that there were a thousand. First buddhist council edition reads eight thousand, which is probably a misprint. It was held at Vaishali under the patronage of King Kalasoka and the presidency of Sabakami.


He could not formulate the lesser and minor precepts, as he was overwhelmed with grief of the imminent death of the Buddha. He first buddhist council to tread on the garment of the Buddha, while sewing it as there was no one to help him.
