The gap between the 1st and 3rd council is about 250 years.
However, at the 1st and 2nd council, there is recitation of abidhamma Sutta to put it as a writing record.
Due to this abidhamma record as well, theravada was formed.
Does anybody know why abidhamma only came or recited after 250 years?
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!
