 Mahayana Buddhism and the Bodhisattva Ideal

Taught by Professor Malcolm David Eckel | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The Mahayana tradition, or "Great Vehicle," emerged in India near the beginning of the Common Era. It introduced the ideal of the bodhisattva, or "future Buddha," who, rather than seeking nirvana, returns again and again in the cycle of samsara to seek the welfare of others.
