The concluding part of the Vinaya Pitaka.
It is a digest of the other parts of the Vinaya and consists of nineteen chapters. The colophon states that the book was the work of a monk named Dipa, probably of Ceylon.
The Commentaries (E.g., DA.i.17; Sp.i.18), however, speak of the Solasa Parivara as having formed part of the Vinaya when it was rehearsed at the First Council. Perhaps the Parivaras correspond to the matika of the Abhidhamma and were enlarged later on.
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).
