Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Bahulikā:A heretical sect among the Buddhists,an offshoot orGokulikā (Mhv.v.5; Mbv.p.97).

The Dīpavamsa (Dpv.v.41) calls the adherents of this sect Bahusuttakā.

According to Tibetan sources (Rockhill,p.183) they derived their name from their teacher,Bahusrutiya.In addition to the five propositions held by theMahāsanghikas,they considered it as a fundamental doctrine that

there is no mode of life leading to real salvation, that the truth of suffering is the Noble Truth, that to perceive the suffering of the samskāras is to enter perfect purity, that there is no way of seeing the misery of suffering and the misery of change; the Sangha is but subject to worldly laws and conditions, arahants acquire the doctrine of others, there is a rightly preached way and a right entry into samāpatti.Ibid., 189.
