Differences Between The Buddhist Schools?
I have read articles on the different schools of Buddhism, Mahayana, Theravada, Zen, etc. But I'd like to hear some personal perspectives on the differences of practice, belief, etc. I know the schools all go back to the Buddha and his basic teachings, but I'm interested in hearing experiences on the DIFFERENCES, as opposed to what we all have in common.
Have you attended Sangha groups or retreats at various schools? If so, what differences did you find?
Do you follow a particular "school" of Buddhism, and if so, why did you choose that path over the others?
I'd really like to hear personal accounts of why you chose a certain path, if you did. Or what your general opinions are on the actual differences between the paths.
