My intention was to try to bring peace between these 2 ranches of Buddhism. Guess it failed . Mod please close this topic. It's pointless to discuss this anymore. A lot of you are now Criticising the mahayahanist hence it makes things worse.

If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
