Or to General Theravada discussion , since it would be nice to have a discussion of the Mahayana from a Theravadin point of view. To some degree there needs to be a corrective to the virulent presen...

Re: where did the mahayana come from

Mahayana from its inception onwards has never been a singular movement; rather, it is a collection of movements that have adopted, more or less, some common overarching features, the primary one being the bodhisattva doctrine. This collection of movements, which we can call the Mahayana, arose out o...
