In this outline, the author confines herself to the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, which accepts many of the doctrines found in all forms of Buddhism. Mahayana accepts many of these doctrines but holds some of them less important. What is most important in Mahayana is Enlightenment, freedom from Illusion, and the aspiration after Buddhahood, and this not only for a few wise monks but for all beings. Mahayana is the religion of the Buddhists of the North and East of Asia and, as such, deserves to be studied and appreciated. Contents: Hinayana and Mahayana; Mahayana Buddhism; Further Development of Mahayana; Mahayana in Practice; Outline of Some Important Mahayana Sutras; and Extracts from Mahayana Sutras. [via]
