The present book collects research papers by Bhikkhu Anālayo related to Vinaya. Recurrent topics are the nature of Vinaya narrative and the overlap between discourse and Vinaya material, both of which have significant ramifications for the use of such textual material by the modern scholar. In addition, topics taken up in the course of this book are the legal consequences of pārājika, the mass suicide of monks, the tale of Vessantara's lavish giving, the impact of the account of the first saṅgīti on attitudes towards Vinaya rules, the account of the foundation of the order of bhikkhunīs, and the legal dimensions of the revival of the bhikkhunī order.
