Please choose one branch or sub-branch of Buddhism and discuss (not just list – discuss) three traits you find interesting or meaningful about that type of Buddhism. You can include details like where and when it was developed and where it is practiced now. How do practitioners distinguish their form of Buddhism from other branches of Buddhism? These branches include Theravada, Mahayana, Vajrayana, Zen (Chan), and Pure Land.
Please use only our textbook for your responses and try to draw out elements and features not already reviewed in other students’ posts. Your formal response should be at least 125 words. All posts should be free of typing, grammar, and punctuation errors. Please also double check all facts.
