- Dear Venerable Sir,
Thank you for your answer,
I would like to ask you one more question. This regarding the term theravada, hinayana, mahayana, mahasanghika, sarvastida.
I am a bit confused regarding these as many books and people said that Hinayana is in fact Theravada ?
Does anyone know the exact chronological events in regards of the occurence of those terms?
Thank you in advance

From what little I know, the differences between the texts are mostly
trivial. These variant readings are noted in the Chattha Sangaayana
Tipitaka. For example, the following text from the Dhammmapada
Yathaapi rucira.m puppha.m, va.n.navanta.m sUgandhaka.m
"Just like a beautiful flower with a sweet fragrance."
Yathaapi rucira.m puppha.m, va.n.navanta.m sAgandhaka.m
"Just like a beautiful fragrant flower."
Here and there one finds a different spelling, or an extra word, or a
missing word, but as far as I know there are no suttas found in the Thai
Tipitaka that are not found in the Burmese, or vice versa.
