Therefore 'Mahomet' means 'Great Mercy'. Buddha's doctrine was Esoteric and Exoteric: 2. According to Sacred Books of the East, volume 1 1 , pg. Muhammad pbuh on the commandment of Almighty God delivered the message and doctrine without making any distinction between esoteric and exoteric.

The Qur'an was recited in public in the days of the Prophet and is being done so till date. To avoid this he decided that the Dhamma must be preserved and protected. This monk was well qualified for the task as the Buddha had taught him the whole of the Vinaya himself.

Thus the Vinaya was formally approved. This interrogation on the Dhamma sought to verify the place where all the discourses were first preached and the person to whom they had been addressed. The First Council also gave its official seal of approval for the closure of the chapter on the minor and lesser rules, and approval for their observance. It took the monks seven months to recite the whole of the Vinaya and the Dhamma and those monks sufficiently endowed with good memories retained all that had been recited.

This is a reference to some monks breaking of ten minor rules. Storing salt in a horn. Eating after midday. Eating once and then going again to a village for alms.

Holding the Uposatha Ceremony with monks dwelling in the same locality. Carrying out official acts when the assembly was incomplete.

Following a certain practice because it was done by one's tutor or teacher. Eating sour milk after one had his midday meal. Consuming strong drink before it had been fermented. Using a rug which was not the proper size.

Using gold and silver. Their misdeeds became an issue and caused a major controversy as breaking these rules was thought to contradict the Buddha's original teachings. He immediately criticized their behavior and their response was to offer him a share of their illegal gains in the hope that he would be won over. The Elder Yasa, however declined and scorned their behavior.

The monks immediately sued him with a formal action of reconciliation, accusing him of having blamed their lay devotees. The Elder Yasa accordingly reconciled himself with the lay devotees, but at the same time, convinced them that the Vijjian monks had done wrong by quoting the Buddha's pronouncement on the prohibition against accepting or soliciting for gold and silver.

The Elder Yasa, however escaped their censure and went in search of support from monks elsewhere, who upheld his orthodox views on the Vinaya.

Together they decided to go to Soreyya to consult the Venerable Revata as he was a highly revered monk and an expert in the Dhamma and the Vinaya. As soon as the Vajjian monks came to know this they also sought the Venerable Revata's support by offering him the four requisites which he promptly refused. These monks then sought to use the same means to win over the Venerable Revata's attendant, the Venerable Uttara.

Uttara changed his mind and accepted the requisites. Urged on by them he then agreed to go and persuade the Venerable Revata to declare that the Vajjian monks were indeed speakers of the Truth and upholders of the Dhamma.

The Venerable Revata saw through their ruse and refused to support them. He then dismissed Uttara. Once his opinion was given it was to be heard by a committee of eight monks, and its validity decided by their vote. After the debate was heard the eight monks decided against the Vajjian monks and their verdict was announced to the assembly.

Namo Amitabha - Namo Buddhaya

The Council was convened in B. It was presided over by the Elder Moggaliputta Tissa and one thousand monks participated in this Council. Thereafter he ceased supporting other religious groups and his interest in and devotion to the Dhamma deepened.

In time the order was infiltrated by many unworthy men, holding heretical views and who were attracted to the order because of the Emperor's generous support and costly offerings of food, clothing, shelter and medicine. Large numbers of faithless, greedy men espousing wrong views tried to join the order but were deemed unfit for ordination. Despite this they seized the chance to exploit the Emperor's generosity for their own ends and donned robes and joined the order without having been ordained properly.

When this came to light some of the genuine monks refused to hold the prescribed purification or Uposatha ceremony in the company of the corrupt, heretical monks. When the Emperor heard about this he sought to rectify the situation and dispatched one of his ministers to the monks with the command that they perform the ceremony.

However, the Emperor had given the minister no specific orders as to what means were to be used to carry out his command.

In desperation the angry minister advanced down the line of seated monks and drawing his sword, beheaded all of them one after the other until he came to the King's brother, Tissa who had been ordained. The horrified minister stopped the slaughter and fled the hall and reported back to the Emperor Asoka was deeply grieved and upset by what had happened and blamed himself for the killings.
