Different Types of Buddhism and Buddhist Practice

There are four different types of Buddhist practice which are ;

  • Theravadan Buddhism,
  • Mahayana/Tantric Buddhism,
  • Zen/Japanese/Chinese/Korean
  • Pure Land / Chinese / Japanese Buddhism

The Buddha's Face Buddhism 101 Project brings you a short article on the 4 different paths that have originated from the path of one man, a prince who lived 2500 years and decided to leave his palace and seek the meaning to existence and his desire to overcome the shortcomings of the human condition.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
