According to the teachings of Mahayana traditions, Mahayana also refers to the path of seeking complete enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings, also called Bodhisattvayana or the Bodhisattva Vehicle.

During its history, Mahayana Buddhism spread from India to various other Asian countries such as Bangladesh, China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Bhutan, Malaysia, and Mongolia. Major traditions of Mahayana Buddhism today include Zen, Chinese Chan, Pure Land, Tiantai, and Nichiren.
