Silakkhandha-vagga[edit]

The Division Concerning Morality (suttas 1-13); named after a tract on monks' morality that occurs in each of its suttas (in theory; in practice it is not written out in full in all of them); in most of them it leads on to the jhanas (the main attainments of samatha meditation), the cultivation of psychic powers and becoming an arahant.
