Studies in Vinaya Technical Terms IV-X
Studies in Vinaya Technical Terms III was concerned with parivasa and manatta, the specific penalties incurred by Buddhist monks or nuns who have committed a Samghadisesa offence, and the only one in that list whose redress, dealt with in detail in the second and third Khandhakas of the Cullavagga, is said to entail formal procedures and constant supervision by a regular chapter. The present studies deal with other penalties which are related (whether they also involve procedures or not) noth to each other and to those of parivasa and manatta: the group of seven other disciplinary procedures detailed in the first Khandhaka of the Cullavagga; the contrasting terms nissarana, osarana, which must be investigated in connexion with those procedures; the penalties of expulsion and punishment; the disciplinary procedures of proclamation and boycott of a lay donor’s gifts and the brahma-danda penalty.
