Buddha et la marche sur les eaux : du prodige à la condition de l’arhant

Abstract : The Vinaya of the Sthaviravāda schools contain stories about the life of the founder of Buddhism that pertain to his nonhistorical constructed figure aimed at portraying and living the disciplinary rules imposed on the members of the bhikṣu’s community. The storie of the conversion of Kāśyapa of Uruvilvā in which the Buddha walks on the waters of the Nairañjanā symbolically illustrates the supernatural abilities acquired after the awakening while reminding that the final aim of all bhikṣu remains the obtaining of the condition of the Arhant.
