First we you were talking about the end and now about the beginning, so I am a bit lost.

Personally I find the Vows useful and inspiring.

The difference between chimp dna and human is less than 2%.


It is clause 8 that is the operative one when discussing the difference between the Theravada and Mahayana...

The previous 7 outline some apparent commonalities.

An orange pip shares most of its dna with an apple pip...its the remainder of their dna that results in an apple tree or orange tree.

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332

I would say tobes..very similar ethics and only partially shared metaphysics.
