The most special teaching of the Mahayana is caring for others that is something you get or a component of enlightenment is manifest in bodhisattvas. Mahayana Theravada Theravada Buddhism the "Doctrine of the Elders," is the school of Buddhism that shows its scriptural inspiration from the Tipitaka, or Pali canon, which scholars usually agree has the earliest surviving record of the Buddha's teachings.

The Vajrayana is mosly referred as, Tibetan Buddhism. Vajrayana Zen Zen Buddhism is a mix of Indian Mahayana Buddhism and Taoism.
