How to use "Mahayanism" in context?

Mahayanism, also known as the School of Mahāyāna, is one of the most widespread and influential forms of Buddhism. It emphasizes the Nature of Mind principle, also called the ''emptiness'' or ''wisdom'' of phenomena, and the need to eliminate self-view in order to attain enlightenment. Mahayanists believe that all beings have the potential for liberation, and that the only way to achieve this is through the practice of compassion and bodhicitta.
