Pāṭimokkha (Pali tradition)
The Pāṭimokkha is the basic code of monastic discipline, as presented in the Theravadan Pali Canon. This code consists of 227 rules for fully ordained monks (bhikkhus) and 311 for nuns (bhikkhunis). It is contained in the Suttavibhanga, a division of the Pali Vinaya Pitaka.
