10,204 words

Summary: The Pārāyanavagga (Pali, "Way to the Far Shore Chapter") is a small collections of suttas within the Pāli Canon of Theravada Buddhism.

Speaking generally, the Aṭṭhakavagga and the Pārāyanavagga tend more strongly to emphasize the negative sides of asceticism (i.e., asceticism as a process of negating desire), and show a strong concern with regulating everyday bodily activities and sexual desires.
