Abhisamācārika-Sīla : 'Morality consisting in good behaviour', relates to the external duties of a Bhikkhu such as towards his senior, etc. abhisamācārika-Sīla is a name for those Moral rules other than the 8 ending with Right livelihood i.e. 4-fold right speech, 3-fold Right Action and Right livelihood, as in the 8-fold path Vis.M I; see: Sacca IV, 3-5. Impossible is it, o Bhikkhus, that without having fulfilled the law of good behaviour, a Bhikkhu could fulfill the law of genuine pure conduct A.V, 21.
