Please mention that the Tibetan and Chinese Buddhist communities live by different sets of vinaya/pratimoksha, equally belonging to the Small Vehicle (there is no Great Vehicle vinanay). The Himalayas live bij the Mula-sarvastivada vinaya, the Chinese are ordained by the Dharmapupta-vinaya. The Dharmagupta-pratimokhsa has 338 rules and is completed with some 40 - 48 socalled Bodhisattva-rules, some of which are identical to the novice-rules of the Theravada.
