Preached by Mahamoggallana in the Bhesakalavana at Sumsumaragiri in the Bhagga country. It deals with the admonishing of monks and with self examination. It is of interest to note that there is no reference to the Buddha throughout the discourse (M.i.95-100).
Buddhaghosa says that this discourse was known to the Porana as the Bhikkhupatimokkha, and adds that this self examination should take place three times each day (MA.i.294). The description of the evil minded monk given in the sutta is often quoted (E.g., Sp. iii. 612).
Theravāda is a major branch of Buddhism having the the Pali canon (tipitaka) as their canonical literature, which includes the vinaya-pitaka (monastic rules), the sutta-pitaka (Buddhist sermons) and the abhidhamma-pitaka (philosophy and psychology).
