    Discipline Code

    Hey guys. I readed all the vinaya code. Its 227 rules. But i heard that the monks have to respect more than 250 rules.

    1)What are the others rules?

    2)What is the differences between the buddhist monks rules and the martial monks rules?

    3)When i readed the monastic code of discipline its always writen bhikkus and not monk. Is it the good code? Why do they dont write only monk?

    Peace out!

    Where is this vinaya code? I'd like to put it on the site for reference.

    Bizarre set of rules they have on that Quebec site. Not sure where they got that from. And, they're missing some.

    I think Fa Hui sent me a bunch of rules, which I put on the site, somewhere, in the site. Maybe in the Buddhist section. We got them somewhere....

    OK, two places to look. (put monk rules in the russbo.com search engine, and you'll find these places).

    Look in the Shaolin FAQ, under "what rules do the monks live by", and also in the Fugue section, subsection "Vows".

    That should be helpful.

    Shi Xing Hong told us that those 10 rules are the "Kung fu moral" (wu de). As I understood it, those were the only rules to follow as that kind of monk Shi Xing Hong is (i suppose it is shaolin martial layman monk, but I was never directly told, so I could be very wrong).
    He also told us that for a buddhist shaolin monk, there are 250 rules to follow.

    there are 5 stages towards becoming he shang in Shaolin. He shang is fully ordained.

    martial monks, and other monks, are all different as to where they are along the way of which vows they have taken and what stage they are at.

    in any case, no monk or nun could possibly follow all 250 rules, so to try and figure out which ones "martial" monks follow and which ones other monks follow doesn't seem to me to be a successful pursuit in all likelihood.

    some monks will not concentrate on gong fu at all, some will concentrate on both, depends on ability and desire, to varying degrees. It might be possible for a martial monk to have a better practice or understanding of ch'an than a non martial monk.
