The Vinaya (Pali and Sanskrit, literally meaning "leading out", "education", "discipline") is the regulatory framework for the sangha or monastic community of Buddhism... More > based on the canonical texts called the Vinaya Pitaka. The teachings of the Gautama Buddha can be divided into two broad categories: Dharma "doctrine" and Vinaya "discipline".

Three of these are still in use: Theravadin (Theravada), Mulasarvastivadin (the schools of Tibetan Buddhism) and Dharmaguptakin (East Asian Buddhism). The Vinayas are the same in substance and have only minor differences.< Less

I feel that it will be helpful for the reader to know in some manner how why the content of this collection of teachings was put together. The teaching relied heavily on the inspiration and guidance... More > of the Lord through the Holy Spirit. This resulted in a unique set of varied subjects.

In order to preserve the spontaneity and inspired moments I have chosen to set them forth as they happened without editing them in regard to sentence structure, grammar or any form that might constrict the free flow of the information. The desire is to provide, as much as possible, the atmosphere of being there. Since almost all small readable books are of about twenty thousand words it means that only about four or five sessions will be included in each volume. This is the first issue.< Less
