Ordination 1

Today’s inaugural post is the first installment of our translation of the skandhaka section of the Sifen Vinaya. “Skandhaka” means “collection” of related matters. The files posted today contain a translation of the first of five fascicles (scrolls or sections) that comprise the Ordination Skandhaka (T1428, 22:779-886). The contents of the Ordination skandhaka include a biography of the Buddha and information about ordination.


As always we welcome feedback of any type!
