Summary: The English translation of the Bhikkhuni-vibhanga: the second part of the Suttavibhanga, which itself is the first book of the Pali Vinaya Pitaka, one of the three major ‘baskets’ of Therevada canonical literature. It is a acollection of rules for Buddhist nuns.

The English translation of the Vinaya-pitaka (second part, bhikkhuni-vibhanga) contains many Pali original words, but transliterated using a system similar to the IAST. In English, this basket is known as “The Book of the Discipline”.

It is can also be spelled as Bhikkhunīvibhaṅga (bhikkhunī-vibhaṅga).
