Problems that always come up in "buddhism[edit]

We have a deep problem with this article, and I'm unsure how to address it. We look at "buddhism" as one singular thing, rather than recognizing the variety of buddhism that exist around the world. In Japan, monks and nuns are often married and are able to have sexual lives, bear children, etc. In China, some practices are fully abstinent, and are so for the entire time one is a monk or nun, others are more lax in their requirements. It also depends on what part of your monastic life you are approaching. Apprenticeship, mastership, etc. My problem is that while I know this is the case from casual reading, I'm not educated enough in Buddhism to really correct it. Any suggestions?--Green mowse.pngGodotIz a sekret Kristian 16:17, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
