Mahavihara

The heading Classical Theravada was modified by inserting "Mahavihara". What is the difference between Classical Theravada and Classical Mahavihara Theravada?
This noble eightfold path is the ancient path traveled by all the Buddhas of eons past. Nagara Sutta

Hi Will,

There is no difference in meaning, but the wording of the latter makes the referent clearer.

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
The Great Sage did thus proclaim
With many a diverse chosen name
Vipassanā stilled and purified,
That to Emergence is allied.

Saṃsāra-cycle’s swamp of pain
Is vast and terrible; a man
Wisely should strive as best he can,
If he would this Emergence gain.
(Visuddhimagga XXI)
