Yes. What you quoted is correct: “In modern translations, it is defined as “causing a schism in the Sangha (order of monks)”.

How that schism takes place is described in the “Saṅghabheda Sutta (AN 10.37)”.

A good example is the incorrect interpretation of anicca and anatta as impermanence and no-self.
– That had blocked the path of many people over the past several hundred years!
– Teaching “adhamma” as “Buddha Dhamma” can have serious kammic consequences.
