Therevāda monastic discipline (vinaya) consists of rules of monastic training laid down by the Buddha for regulating the conduct of Buddhist monks (bhikkhus) and nuns (bhikkhunis) and their monastic under-training disciples. Basically all these rules are meant to enable the renunciate to exercise restraint over bodily and verbal actions, and thus help in the purification of spiritual life.

Transgression of these training rules means committing an offense, which attracts penalties necessary for rehabilitation of the guilty bhikkhu or bhikkhuni. The Buddha laid down these rules whenever the monastic disciples committed an unwholesome act, or behaved in an unbecoming way. For, wrong conduct or behavior effects the transgressor's spiritual life, and threatens to disrupt the lives of fellow monastics. And this to the detriment of spiritual progress for every one in the Buddha's dispensation, which consists of bhikkhus, bhikkhunis, upāsakas and upāsikās.
