Buddhism (for Hamsters)

The differences between the Theravada and Mahayana schools of Buddhism in terms of their view on karma, as transmitted and translated into Hamster by mokie

"In normal Hinduism, everyone climbs on the Great Hamster Wheel and keeps things going, because it's all still got to keep functioning.

In Buddhism, though:

a) Theravada - some step off the Wheel and the rest slip him food and encouragement because hey, next time around, that's us!;
or b) Mahayana - some step off the Wheel and ponder the best way to get everyone else off the Wheel without just shoving a bar into the spokes.

Theravada is a hamster sneaking off and away from the Great Wheel here and there.

Mahayana is a couple of hamsters hopping off and standing at the side, chins in hand, thinking NIMH-ish thoughts about subverting the system


But then, what is Atheism for Hamsters?

"There is no human."

I suspect a great many academic things can be rendered such. This is giving me ideas! :)
