ABSTRACT:
Religion plays the most important role in the life of human beings. Buddhism is one of the religions embracing around the world. Buddhism has many denominations such as Theravada, Mahayana, Tantrayana, Zin, Tibetan and so on. Among the them, we traced the historical background from the time of the Buddha up to the 3rd century B.C. Theravada (Sthavira in Sanskrit) Buddhism is the orthodox denomination for the followers especially the Order of the Sangha follows the disciplinary rules strictly as promulgated by the Buddha even today. We discussed why and when it split into several schools.
