Some Major Schools of Mahayana
There are many ideals of Mahayana Buddhism
One ideal- that the notion of kindness is the supreme sign of enlightened awareness- has allowed many pre-Buddhist beliefs and practices to continue within Mahayana Buddhism. Also, Mahayana Buddhism recognizes people at different stages of spiritual evolution. Different sections of Mahayana exist and show a wide variety of attitudes toward art and rituals, acceptance of pleasure, and world success.
