Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)
Vacchagotta asks the Buddha how his teaching on the subject of rebirth differs from that of other teachers; for example, of Purana Kassapa. The Buddha explains that, according to his own teaching, rebirth comes only to a being who has fuel, the fuel being craving (S.iv.398f).
The discussion arises out of a conversation which, according to Vacchagotta, took place among paribbajakas in the Kutuhalasala.
Buddhaghosa says (DA.ii.369; MA.ii.694) that there was no special place of that name; any place where discussions were held could be so called. See also D.i.179.
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).
