- Buddhist community ± in the early days, to join the Buddhist tradition;
o Take 3 refuges:
1. I take refuge in the Buddha
2. I take refuge in the Dharma
3. I take refuge in the Sangha ± community of Buddhists, monks and
nuns
- monks and nuns (entire community) assembled and affirmed the basic teachings ±
weekly/monthly
- the most reliable way to achieve continuity was for all the monks and nuns to
come together and compile a list of all the things they did (rules, Buddha
teachings, practices etc.)

x Disagreements led to separation of community
x Later on, divided into even more groups
- Groups are classified into two major communities/sects
o 1. Theravada ± Arhants are perfect ± South and South East Asia
Thailand ± 16 century
Specific platform of belief
I. Believes the Arhants have the same amount of enlightenment as
Buddha
II. Visualized/interprets the Buddha as a regular human being
III. To achieve the highest goals of the tradition, must live a
monastic life ± purist form of life
