I thought of starting a thread with some teachings on the difference between the two major Buddhist traditions.
There was some discussions recently and rather than rehash this old saw, I thought it might be more informative to have some resources to refer people to when they ask. I hope mods allow some controversial teachings here that may not be altogether favourable to show a spectrum of views.
Here's a few I've got at my fingertips (my favourite is the second):
Ajahn Brahm (Theravada Thai Forest):
Ajahn Amaro (Theravada Thai Forest):http://spooksrus.tripod.com/buddha-bill/mahayana-vs-theravada.html
Ven Dr Walpola Rahula (Srilanka monk and scholar):http://www.chuadieuphap.us/English_Section/essays/rahula_theravada_mahayana.asp
Robert Thurman (former Tibetan monk, scholar and translator for the Dalai Lama):
Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfield (Theravada - IMS):http://www.beezone.com/theravada/jack_kornfield_joseph_goldstein.html
I know Ajahn Buddhadasa has said quite a lot on the subject but I couldn't find anything online. If anyone would like to contribute other materials, that would be great. Otherwise I can add to it from time to time.
