Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
The Culavamsa (Cv.xxxvii.191) mentions a sutta by this name. The Commentaries on the Dhammapada (DhA.iii.436ff) and the Khuddakapatha (KhpA.162ff) contain accounts of the visit paid by the Buddha to Vesali in order to drive out from there the fears of famine and pestilence, and they describe in great detail the celebrations which took place as the Buddha returned to Rajagaha along the Ganges. This journey is called Gangarohana.
The Sutta mentioned is probably, therefore, the Ratana Sutta (q.v.) which the Buddha preached at Vesali.
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).
