This southern form spread to Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. The Mahayana itself divided further into various sub-schools, among them the Emptiness school (Madhyamaka); the Consciousness-Only school (Yogacara); the Pure Land teachings; the Matrix of the Thus-Come One (Tathagatagarbha) teachings; and the Esoteric teachings (called Vajrayana in Tibet).

He then briefly sum marizes sixty stages through which Bodhisattvas pass on their way to the full awakening of the Buddhas. 27 In describing the stages of the Bodhisattva, the Buddha offers Ananda a roadmap to follow in his future practice. In describing the hells and the other destinies, he warns his listeners of the dangers of committing intentional acts that entail negative consequences. Here again he refers to the prohibitions that he has emphasized repeatedly in this text: do not kill, do not steal, do not commit sexual misconduct, and do not speak falsely.
