I've bolded the differences. :tongue:

You might also try searching wikipedia using those phrases; for example, Chinese Buddhism.
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

Japanese, Chinese and Tibetans schools are usually Mahayana or Vajrayana. There's something about the differences which might be helpful at this website, though I don't know how accurate it is.
Divisions of Mahayana

The distinctions among different sects of Mahayana Buddhism are so pronounced they might seem to be entirely different religions, yet they are all built on the same philosophical and doctrinal foundation.

Hello Tom!

The differences are hard to pin down and describe because there are many and quite different Tibetan Buddhist schools, Chinese Buddhist schools and Japanese Buddhist schools. That said, dharmawheel.net will be a better place to check out and ask about it, because as it says above, these Buddhist traditions belong to Mahayana, which is seen as a distinct tradition to Theravada that this Board is primarily about.
