Hinayana (Buddhism, religions (belief systems, cultures), ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Name applied by followers of Mahayana Buddhism to the ancient, more orthodox schools of Buddhism predating the rise of Mahayana ideas. Although the name reflects the Mahayanists' evaluation of their own traditions as a superior model, surpassing other schools in its universal benevolence, it is not used by the conservative schools as a proper term referring to the common tradition of Buddhism. Modern upholders of the ancient Hinayana tradition are called Theravadins (followers of the Way of the Elders) and practice Theravada Buddhism.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Naam die de volgelingen van het mahayana-boeddhisme gebruiken voor de oude, meer orthodoxe scholen van boeddhisme die voorafgingen aan de opkomst van mahayana-ideeën. Hoewel in de naam tot uitdrukking komt dat de mahayanisten hun eigen tradities als een superieur model beschouwen, dat andere scholen voorbijstreeft in universele goedheid, wordt deze naam door de conservatieve scholen niet gebruikt als term om te verwijzen naar de algemene traditie van het boeddhisme. Moderne aanhangers van de oude hinayana-traditie worden Theravadins genoemd (volgelingen van de Weg van de Ouden) en beoefenen het Theravada-boeddhisme. 
Spanish ..... Nombre aplicado por los seguidores del budismo mahayana a los antiguos, las escuelas más ortodoxas del budismo precediendo el ascenso de las ideas de Mahayana. Aunque el nombre refleja la evaluación Mahayanista de sus propias tradiciones como un modelo superior, sobrepasando otras escuelas en su benevolencia universal, no es usado por las escuelas conservadoras como un término apropiado refiriéndose a la tradición común del budismo. Partidarios modernos de la tradición hinayana antigua son llamados Theravadins (seguidores de el camino de los Eders) y la practica del budismo Theravada.
