The Sangha of bhikkhus and bhikkhunis has been made unified.
As long as my children and grandchildren shall live, and as long as the sun and the moon shall shine, any bhikkhu or bhikkhuni who divides the Sangha shall be made to wear white clothes and dwell outside the monasteries.
What it is my wish?
That the unity of the Sangha should last a long time.
King Aśoka, Minor Pillar Edict, Sāñchī
