Part of the List of dharma_terms from the buddhist_ayurveda Course (skt220 ) on sanskrit_terms of ayurveda and dharma


= Buddhist Sects =

buddhist_sects

buddhism has neither school nor sect: no mahayana, no hinayana, no cao_dong (japanese: soto), lin_chi (Jap. rinzai), yun_men, (Jap. Ummon??) fa_yan, (Jap. Hogen??) or wei_yang sect. There is no chan (Jap. zen), teaching_school (scholastic_buddhism, vinaya, tantric or vajrayana (esoteric), or pure_land_school.

The buddha spoke of the dharma_realm; he did not divide buddhism into chinese, japanese, thai, or sri_lankan. Those divisions were all made by men who came after the buddha who had nothing better to do than go out and look for trouble. Every school is a door, and where there was a unity, they created divisions, made walls and windows in the undivided, universal buddha_dharma. In the undivided buddha_dharma they built partitions by saying, 'My door is better than your window! I am from the Soto sect, the very best; the buddha_dharma is here.'

”'My window is better than your door!' some replied. 'Rinzai zen is the highest. The buddha_dharma is here.' people are just people and make trouble by bickering over who is number one and who is number two. What a headache! 'My window is not the same as yours,' each cries, showing off his spiritual powers and insisting that he is the best.

“Within the buddha_dharma, where is good and where is bad? The good comes from the bad, and the bad comes from the good. Don't split things up into high and low. The vajra_sutra says, 'This dharma is level and equal with nothing above or below.' The great master the sixth_patriarch hui_neng said, 'If I said I had a dharma to give people, I would be lying to you.' The dharma absolutely cannot be spoken.” (vbs #12, March, 1971, 32)

“Before the buddha came into the world, there was no buddhism. After the buddha appeared, buddhism came into being, but there was not as yet any division into sects or schools. sectarianism is a limited view, a view of small scope, and cannot represent buddhism in its entirety. The complete substance of buddhism, the totality, admits no such divisions. When you divide the totality of buddhism into sects and schools, you merely split it into fragments. In order to understand Buddhism in its totality, one must eliminate views of sects and schools and return to original buddhism. One must return to the root and go back to the source.” (tripitaka_master hsuan_hua, “Back to the source,” shambala Review, v. 5, nos. 1&2, Winter, 1976, p. 26)
