PC accepted by all traditions & school as authentic teaching

Postby mirco » Fri Oct 14, 2011 9:24 pm

Hi,

maybe someone can help me out:

I can remember having heard, that, not so long ago, there has been a meeting/convention, where representatives of many (all?) traditions have agreed, that the pali tipitaka is accepted the original teaching of the Buddha and is so to be use at least as the foundation for all traditions/schools ?

Does someone maybe has any details on that?

Best Regards,
Mirco

Greetings Mirco,

It's a question that might be well asked over at Dharma Wheel - http://www.dharmawheel.net/viewforum.php?f=77 - to hear what Mahayanists have to say about it (after all, this is the "Discovering Theravada" section, so of course Theravada includes the Pali Canon).

I doubt you would find many Mahayanists accepting the Abhidhamma PItaka (the third basket of the Pali Canon) as "the original teaching of the Buddha and is so to be use at least as the foundation for all traditions/schools", but don't take my word it... best ask them.

Greetings,

As this topic has gone as far as it can go in a "Discovering Theravada" capacity, it's going to be moved out.
