Our knowledge of the teachings of the Buddha is based on several canons of scripture, which derived from the early Sangha's oral transmissions of bodies of teachings agreed on at several councils. The Theravdin Pali Canon is preserved in the Pali language , which is based upon a dialect close to that spoken by the Buddha, Old Magadha. It is the most complete extant early canon, and contains some of the earliest material. Most of its teachings are in fact the common property of all Buddhist schools, being simply the teachings which the Theravdins preserved from the early common stock. While parts of the Pali Canon clearly originated after the time of the Buddha, much must derive from his teachings. Mahinda and his company brought no books, the texts being in their heads, but the tradition is that the Pali texts were subsequently written down for the first time in the first century BCE.
