Strayer University Theravada or Mahayana Buddhism Discussion Question

Having grown up in wealth and then living a life of extreme asceticism, The Buddha found no peace. He arrived at a Middle Way and for his Dharma he proposed the 4 Noble Truths and the 8-Fold Path. (pp. 142-148). This would break the samsara cycle and produce nirvana. The challenge is putting The Buddha’s Dharma into action.

Discussion question: Theravada Buddhism is about mindfulness and meditation. Mahayana Buddhism is about compassion guided by wisdom.

1) Discuss how either Theravada or Mahayana Buddhism can apply the principles of the 8-Fold Path to daily living.

2) Which system would you choose to live by? Why?

Here are several websites for Buddhism.
