BUDDHISM TRADITIONS

 
The most common way scholars categorize Buddhist schools follows the major languages of the extant Buddhist canons, which exist in Pali, Tibetan (also found in Mongolian translation) and Chinese collections, along with some texts that still exist in Sanskrit and Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit. This is a useful division for practical purposes, but does not necessarily correspond to philosophical or doctrinal divisions since, despite the differences, there are common threads to almost all Buddhist branches:
  1. All accept the Buddha as their teacher.
  2. All accept the Middle Way, Dependent origination, the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path.
  3. All accept that both the members of the laity and of the Sangha can pursue the path toward enlightenment (bodhi).
  4. All consider Buddha hood to be the highest attainment.
