Sacred Texts - Buddhism

"Even within the same religion, there may be a divergence of opinion about sacred writings.  The branch of Buddhism known as Theravada accepts only the Tripitaka (Three Baskets) of early Pali writings, whereas the Manayanas' sutras represent many times the length of the Christian Bible."
