Differences between the 4 schools?
« on: September 03, 2015, 05:43:37 pm »
What are the main differences between the 4 schools of Buddhism? What practices does each do that is different from the others. For example does Nyingmapa have more Yidam practices than that of the other schools? What Sutras does each follow and which sutras do they not follow?

For a more in-depth examination, you might wish to listen to the following two-part lecture by Alexander Berzin:
