Mahavihara

Postby Will » Fri Jan 16, 2009 6:31 pm

The heading Classical Theravada was modified by inserting "Mahavihara". What is the difference between Classical Theravada and Classical Mahavihara Theravada?
A man should not judge a man, for he harms himself very quickly, that man who judges a man.
Only I or someone like me can assess a man.

There is no difference in meaning, but the wording of the latter makes the referent clearer.

Best wishes,
