For example, “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged” (Blakeley 46).

Thus, early Indian Buddhism had inevitably evolved and formed a new school of Buddhism known as Mahayana. The Mahayana school of Buddhism shares vast similarities with Early Indian Buddhism in their fundamental beliefs but have contrasting differences on certain aspects such as the five pathways towards liberation and enlightenment.
