early school who rejected abhidhamma entirely?

Postby alan... » Fri Mar 01, 2013 3:45 am

i remember reading about a school who rejected the abhidhamma and possibly even their name means "it ends at the sutta pitaka" although that part may be way off.

basically they had the vinaya and sutta pitakas and quit there.

anyone know what i'm talking about?

The non-doing of any evil,
The performance of what's skillful,
The cleansing of one's own mind:
This is the Buddhas' teaching.

Puggalavadins - see the book on them by the Canadian scholar whose name escapes me now.

Interestingly, I was getting my hopes up about the Sautrantika's but then I came across the part that mentions that they believed in multiple Buddha's existing at the same time.
"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -
