Pippalī Cave ［畢鉢羅窟］ (; Hippara-kutsu): A cave located near Rājagriha in Magadha, India. According to one Buddhist tradition, Pippalī Cave was the site of the First Buddhist Council, held to compile Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings immediately after his death. A different tradition has it that the site of the First Buddhist Council was Saptaparna Cave, or Cave of the Seven Leaves, also located near Rājagriha. Some suppose that Pippalī Cave is another name for the Cave of the Seven Leaves. It is said that Mahākāshyapa, one of Shakyamuni’s ten major disciples, who led the compilation of the sutras and the vinaya (rules of monastic discipline) at the First Buddhist Council, used this cave as his dwelling and place of practice.
