buddhism, diagram of buddhism, sabio lantz

Last time I wrote about a diagram outlining Buddhism I referred to it as “Buddhism in a nutshell” (see “A picture and a thousand words“). I won’t make the mistake again—some cried foul because they felt the diagram was incomplete or biased. Well, I suppose that would have to be the case for any diagram claiming to outline the whole of Buddhism (although in this case, the author makes no such claim) but I like diagrams and enjoyed this one, by blogger Sabio Lantz at Triangulations.

 You can treat it like a Hilights magazine puzzle: “Find the Buddha,” or “What’s missing?” You can click here for the original—and more readable—version. UPDATE: Following a few suggestions in the comments section, Sabio Lantz has updated his diagram to include the Four Bramhaviharas. Take a look—nice job!
