XII.2 (BMC p.1)Buddhist friends in Malaysia asked me to explain something about the Vinaya1 rules that guide the Buddhist monk's life — in particular about monks or bhikkhus2 of the Theravaada lineage.We monks already have several learned texts in English to help us so a simplified 'lay person's guide' now seems in order. As Buddhist female renuciants (nuns) find their place, they will be in the best position to explain their own rules.)My aim has been to illustrate those of the monk's rules that also affect the lay person in some way.3 At first it was going to deal only with a few questions but it has grown with people's suggestions into a more thorough work of reference.(It was originally circulated as a computer printout, and its positive reception encouraged this complete reworking and revision, incorporating many of the suggestions sent to me.) Even so, the best introduction remains a good practicing bhikkhu who shows that amid the myriad things of the material world, living the simple life is possible with care — hence the many rules — much as in the Buddha's time.The original Beginner's Questions section has been kept (with some revision) and moved to the front as a brief overview of the sort of questions covered in the book.It refers to later explanations for more detail, which can be found not only in the main text but in the End Notes, Footnotes, Glossary and Appendices.I also have tried to include broader explanations in the main text so that while the actual rule is faithfully reproduced — including some translation variations — the different ways in which monks actually put it into practice are also covered.
