Question

Short Answer Type Question.
What does the Vinaya Pitaka tell about 'sangha'?


Solution

From the Vinaya Pitaka, we learn that there were separate branches for men and women in the Buddhist 'sangha'. Children were supposed to take their parents' permission and slaves had to ask for permission from their masters to join it. Women had to ask their husbands. Those who lived in the 'Sangha' had to lead very simple lives - meditating, travelling and begging. They taught others and helped each other.
