A discussion on all aspects of Theravāda Buddhism
I don't agree with the label either, but the idea is that for most of Theravādin history the suttas as well as abhidhamma & commentaries have been considered authoritative, whereas nowadays there is a trend of (primarily westerners) setting aside the latter two groups in favor of the suttas alone, in an attempt to achieve maximum orthodoxy.2600htz wrote:Hello:
I kinda get all the traditions on the list, but If "Suttanta" means based on the suttas, how can that be "modern buddhism"? lol.
