Dharmaguptakavinaya

Ann Heirman: Rules for Nuns According to the Dharmaguptakavinaya. The Discipline in Four Parts (3 Vols.), Delhi: Motilal 2015.

The work provides the first complete annotated translation into English of the Chinese version of the bhiksunivibhanga of the Dharmaguptakavinaya. This vinaya laid the foundation of Chinese monastic life. As the Dharmaguptakavinaya came into being in symbiosis with other vinaya traditions, a comparison is made with these other traditions on important issues.
