Dīgha-bhāṇaka


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Name given to those monks who specialized in the recitation of the Dīgha Nikāya, the first section of the Sūtra Piṭaka of the Pāli Canon. This tradition ascribed the Khuddaka Nikāya, minus the last three books, the Apadāna, Buddhavaṃsa, and Cariyāpiṭaka, to the Abhidharma-piṭaka. They also held the view that the four signs that the Bodhisattva saw, prior to his renunciation, were seen on one and the same day.

Subjects: Buddhism.
