HelloQuizzy.com: What Kind of Buddhist Are You Quiz?
you are an ardent Theravadin!
Based on your answers you can be a very accomplished Theravada practitioner. The Arhat in Hinayana Buddhism is considered the highest level of realization. The disciples of the Historic Buddha were the original Arhats. An Arhat is strongly rooted in meditative practice, they thoroughly adhere to the basic concepts of the Four Noble Truths, they diligently walk the 8-fold noble path, and have attained equanimity with craving and aversion thus rooting out all defilements and mental formations. Although not a fully realized Buddha it is believed they will not be born again into the world. At the time of death their karmic flame will be fully extinguished. That's it!... However, it should be known that from the perspective of other schools of Buddhism, the archetype of the Arhat is incomplete in its approach. The tendency of this figure is to be absorbed in self-realization, hence not fully assisting the greater human community on our path to emancipation. Enlightenment may be the goal in Theravada, but don't put aside the possibility that it is only the beginning.
