The Basic Points in Buddhism

Tours on Buddhist Meditation Teaching Centers
Since the time Buddhism made entry into the religious scene of the world, a number of schools and subschools associated with it have also come up. These schools and sub schools have their own sets of beliefs, practices, rituals and customs but what joins all them is an importat unity centered around the teachings of the Buddha.

In 1967, the First Congress of the World Buddhist Sangha Council (WBSC) was convened in Sri Lanka. Prominent Mahayana and Therevada monks from around the world gathered and created a statement that was meant to unify all the different Buddhist traditions. This statement was then approved by the Council without any objection.

The Nine Ponits Meant To Unify Different Schools of Buddhism

The above stated Nine Point formula unifying the different schools of Buddhism was created by Ven. Walpola Sri Rahula. In 1981, he reworked on his original formula and expanded it a bit. The basic points, in the new formula, remained the same, however, expalnations attached with each point were enhanced.
