Ekabbohārā

One of the divisions of the Mahāsaṅghikā (Dpv.v.40; Mhv.v.4). They were so called because they held that “all the doctrines are understood by a unique and immediate wisdom, for all the doctrines of the Buddha are comprehended by the intellect.” (Mhv.187 f).

They held, among other things, that the Tathāgathas were not subject to worldly laws, that the Dhammacakkas of all Tathāgathas did not agree; the Bodhisatta did not pass through the successive stages of embryonic development; that he is born at will among inferior beings for the salvation of mankind; with our wisdom the four truths are perfectly understood; he who has perfectly acquired right restraint has cast off all attachments (yoga). Rockhill, op.cit., 183.
