Mahayana , One of the three major Buddhist traditions. It arose in the 1st century AD and is widely followed today in China (including Tibet), Korea, and Japan.According to Buddhist tradition, the belief system was founded by a former Hindu prince, Siddhartha Gautama (l. c. 563 - c. 483 BCE), whose father protected him from experiencing any kind of pain or suffering for the first 29 years of his life. Mahayanists distinguish themselves from the more conservative Theravada Buddhists of Sri Lanka, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. Whereas the Theravadins view the historical Buddha as a (merely) human teacher of the truth, Mahayanists see him as an earthly manifestation of a celestial Buddha. Mahayanists revere bodhisattvas, key figures in universal salvation. Compassion, the chief virtue of the bodhisattva, is valued as highly as wisdom, the virtue emphasized by the ancient Buddhists. Within Mahayana Buddhism, some branches emphasize esoteric practices (e.g., Shingon, Tibetan Buddhism). See also Kegon, Nichiren Buddhism, Pure Land Buddhism, Tiantai, Zen.Mahayana is both a philosophy and a way of life that aspires to nirvana. Nirvana is a state of enlightenmentMahayana emphasizes sunyata, or the emptiness that comes with enlightenment that comes with the recognition that the ego, or the thing we think of as our self, is an illusion that causes us pain and suffering. The Mahayana tradition privileges the Bodhisattva-path. A bodhisattva is one who has achieved enlightenment but postpones full nirvana to help others on their paths to do the same.Mahayana tradition holds that any individual can take up the bodhisattva-path and that enlightenment can occur suddenly and within one lifetime.

大乘佛教最著名的四大菩萨,象征愿力的是地藏王菩萨;象征实践的是普贤菩萨;象征智慧的是文殊菩萨;象征慈悲的是观世音菩萨。 他们都是慈航普度,助佛弘化而担当重任的法身大士,示现教化四种理想的人格,即:愿、行、智、悲。观音、文殊、普贤、地藏是大乘佛教最著名的四大菩萨。文殊表智慧、观音表慈悲、普贤表行践、地藏表愿力,大乘佛教理念人格化凝聚在四大菩萨之中,使至理成为有血有肉的形象事迹;在中国四大菩萨信仰之盛形成了四大名山道埸。同时大乘三藏经典博大精深,传统上分成五类,分别为华严门、方等门、般若门、法华门、涅槃门,称五大部

The Buddha told us that this perfect wisdom and virtue are innate to all beings. The sutras, recorded
teachings of the Buddha, tell us that "all sentient beings can attain Buddhahood." and "every being possessesthe wisdom and virtuous character of the Buddha". In other words, al beings are equal to Buddhas in nature.However, due to our discriminatory and wandering thoughts and attachments, which are the root cause of allsufferings and disasters, we have temporarily lost our original Buddha nature. Thus, we continue being borninto the endless cycle of birth and death.

There are lots of differences between Mahayana and Hinayana
Mahayana literally means ‘travelers by a greater vehicle’ and Hinayana literally means ‘travelers by a lesser vehicle.’
Mahayana accepts Lord Buddha as a deity while Hinayana Buddhism does not accept that godly attribution to Lord Buddha. They believe that Lord Buddha is an ordinary human being.
While Hinayana tries to follow the Lord Buddha’s original teaching in the same way, Mahayana gives its own interpretation to Lord Buddha’s teachings.
Mahayana says that everyone can become a Buddha. This is because of the fact that everyone is blessed with the Buddha-nature factor that can propel the attainment of the status of Buddha. Hinayana does not go into the details of Buddha-nature factors at all.
Though both believe in immeasurable attitudes they have different definitions of joy and equanimity.
These are the important differences between the two sects of Buddhism, namely, Mahayana Buddhism and Hinayana Buddhism.
