In Buddhism, the Vinaya is the code of conduct for members of the Sangha, that is, monks and nuns. While there are different versions of the Vinaya texts and ordination lineages, generally, monks take a different number and types of vows according to the tradition and their individual level of ordination. Vinaya as a set of rules are used in all Buddhist monasteries and nunneries, although nuns are required to take more numerous vows than monks.
