The Cullavagga (part of the Vinaya collection) includes accounts of the First and Second Buddhist Councils as well as the establishment of the community of Buddhist nuns. The Cullavagga also elaborates on the etiquette and duties of Bhikkhus....

Cullavagga, Khandaka 3, Chapter 4

1. When he had passed through the probation he told the Bhikkhus, saying, 'I committed, friends, an offence—the first Saṃghādisesa—which for one day I concealed. I asked the Saṃgha to impose upon me a probation of one day for the offence . . . . concealed. The Saṃgha imposed . . . . concealed. I have passed through that probation. What now should I do?'

They told this thing to the Blessed One.

'Let then the Saṃgha impose upon Udāyi the Bhikkhu a Mānatta of six days' duration.'

2, 3. [Here follows the kammavācā as in chapter 1, §§ 2, 3, to the end.]
