Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
A book containing the history of the Buddhas Hair Relic. The Relic was brought to Ceylon from India by Silakala in the reign of Moggallana I. The king placed it in a crystal casket in a beautiful building with a picture of Dipankaras city (?) and established a festival in its honour. Silakala was appointed custodian of the Relic (Cv.xxxix.49ff).
The Kesadhatuvamsa is not now available. It was evidently easily obtainable at the time of the writing of the first part of the Culavamsa (See, e.g., Cv.xxxix.56). It seems to have been quite distinct from the Chakesadhatuvamsa (q.v.).
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).
