Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
The introductory story relates how the monks of Kosambi quarrelled and brought about great dissension among themselves because one of their number had left in a vessel the surplus water for rinsing the mouth. When the Buddha found that he could not induce the monks to live in harmony, he related to them the story of Dighiti, king of Kosala, and when even that failed to produce the desired effect he uttered ten stanzas, standing poised in mid air, and went away from Kosambi, leaving the monks to their fate.
The Kosambi Jataka contains only a small portion of the story of Dighiti, scarcely more than an allusion to it. The Dighiti Kosala Jataka (q.v.) contains further details, but even when taken together, these two do not make the story complete. The full story is related in the Vinaya Pitaka (Vin.i.342ff).
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).
