Yes, I agree, that the difference between Mahayana and Theravada are only in terms, but basically the both Buddhist Schools arose from the same root.
I think that the Arahant Upagupta are similar with the Great Bodhisatva Avalokitesvara, who make a vow to rescue all living beings.
According to my opinion to study Buddhist Teaching we must try to understand the terms clearly, so we can achieve the right view.
I think the meaning of Shrotapanna, Anagami, etc are same in both traditions, but I never studied it deply, maybe in the next time.
But in general Shrotapanna, Anagami, etc are the holy stage and achievement in Buddhism.
Here we can take a conclusion, that in both traditions, the term's usage is difference, are you agree with this? Or maybe you can add your opinion to make allthing really clear.
Thank you very much for this discussion.
