Bhikkhu Patimokkha Pali PDF Download

The Bhikkhu Patimokkha is the code of discipline for Buddhist monks, containing 227 rules that regulate their conduct. The word patimokkha means "that which frees or liberates" and refers to the liberation from the cycle of rebirth. The Bhikkhu Patimokkha is recited every fortnight by the monks in a ceremony called uposatha, or observance day, in which they confess any transgressions and renew their commitment to the training.


The Bhikkhu Patimokkha is written in Pali, the language of the early Buddhist scriptures. Pali is a derivative of Sanskrit and belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European language family. Pali was widely used as a lingua franca in ancient India and was the medium of communication among the followers of the Buddha. Pali is still studied and used by Theravada Buddhists, who regard it as the sacred language of their tradition.
