I am learning about buddhism through a youtube series. I remember you mentioning that you were practicing. I was surprised about the emphasis on compassion, peace and wisdom in the few videos I've watched so far.
The youtuber is called Mindah-Lee Kumar and she is very intelligent and interesting.
anywho yeah those are some of the main themes in Buddhism among others. This includes themes such as how desire leads to pain.
There are however some differences between Mahayana and Heenayana factions of Buddhism. But overall these themes persist across both of them.
From the brief reading I just did it seems like the Mahayana means "Greater vehicle" by virtue of its inclusion of the expedient means, especially that of bodhisattva. If I understood correctly that is a means of including various buddhist practices as a vehicle towards enlightenment. The bodhisattva, if I understood right, is the practice of leading other souls into enlightenment and in a way constitutes a more selfless practice. On the other hand Hinayana buddhism seems to focus more on the essence, what I understand to be the pilgrim's own personal path to enlightenment.
So, I think that since you are from Sri Lanka originally that you are of the Hinayana school of Buddhism. :)
Yo! I think we should combine the threads. what do you say?
Interested in a Tezcalipoca? I just so happen to have one :)
