Hello Huseng, all,
Are there Mahāsāṃghika suttas translated into English? Other than difference regarding Devadatta, Fallibility (?) of Arhats, Transcendental Buddha, what are the doctrinal differences? Thanks.
As for idea of the Buddha. To me, Gotama as being an ordinary human until Buddhahood, is FAR MORE inspiring than the idea that He was some transcendental Being (God?) who only pretended to be unawakened. It also appears that Buddha didn't know about electricity, how weather works, what causes eclipses, geology/history.
With best wishes,
