Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
1) Hetupratyaya (हेतुप्रत्यय) refers to the “twelve causes and conditions” (dvādaśa-hetupratyaya) according to the Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter X. The twelve causes and conditions (dvādaśa-hetupratyaya) are called gambhīradharma. Thus the Buddha said to Ānanda: “The twelve causes and conditions (or pratītya-samutpāda) are profound (gambhīra), difficult to probe (durvigāhya) and difficult to understand (duranubodha).”
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings).
