The Buddha taught the first monks and nuns to make their robes of "pure" cloth, which meant cloth that no one wanted. The first monks wore robes patched together from rags, as did many mendicant holy men in India at the time. As the wandering community of disciples grew, the Buddha found that some rules about robes were necessary. These are recorded in the Vinaya-pitaka of the Pali Canon or Tripitaka.

佛陀教導第一批僧侶和尼姑製作"純"布的長袍,這意味著沒有人想要的布。第一批僧侶穿著從破布上拼湊而成的長袍,當時印度許多修道的聖人也是如此。隨著門徒的遊蕩社區的成長,佛陀發現關於長袍的一些規則是必要的。這些被記錄在帕利卡隆或特裡皮塔卡的維納亞-皮卡塔卡。
