A collective term, comprehending the
Bhikkhu-vibhanga and the Bhikkhunī-vibhanga of the Vinaya Pitaka.
It consists of sixty-four bhānavāras
In the nine-fold division of the
Buddha's teachings - sutta, geyya, etc. the Ubhato-vibhanga falls into the
category of sutta (DA.i.23; Gv.57. 43).
Sometimes the word seems to be used as
varia lectio for Ubhato-Vinaya. E.g., Vin.ii.287; see also Dpv. vii.43.
