Bhikkhupatimokkhapali – Ānandajoti Bhikkhu (eng)


Ānandajoti Bhikkhu

Editor’s Preface
The readings for this edition of the Bhikkhupàtimokkhapàëi are substantially a transliteration of the text of the rules as they appear in Pàràjikapàëi & Pàcittiyapàëi, which constitute the first two volumes in the Buddha Jayanti Tripitaka Series (Vols I & I(I)).1 The Pàtimokkha is not printed there as a separate item but is embedded within the Suttavibhaïga, which contains, wherever appropriate, the origin stories, the various recensions the rules went through, the final rule, the permutations, the exceptions, and a word commentary on the rule itself. The BJT editors were somewhat inconsistent in providing titles for the rules, and in certain cases omitted them altogether. The deficiency in this regard has been made up from the ChS edition as printed on the Chaññha Saïgàyana CD-ROM (Version 3). In the original edition there were many cases where the text was inconsistent in its use of punctuation and layout. Here an attempt has been made to present a more standardized version of the text in this regard, but these sort of changes have not been noted. Other changes and corrections made by the present editor that affect the substance of the text have been recorded in the notes.
