A later offshoot of the Mahāsanghika
school, through the Paññatti and
Bāhulika sects of the
Gokulikavāda (Mhv.v.7; Dpv. v.42; Mbv.96f).
Bhavya, quoted by Rockhill, says that the Caityas received their name from
their having dwelt in the Caitya Mountain. Op. Cit., 183; for an account of the
Cetiyavādins see de la Vallée Poussin's "The Five Points of Mahādeva" in Pubbaseliyas.
