小乘 Xiǎoshèng

Xiǎoshèng proper noun Hinayana / Hīnayāna
Domain: Buddhism 佛教
Notes: Sanskrit: hīnayāna, Japanese: shōjō. 小乘 is a derogatory term used by Mahāyāna followers to refer to the non-Mahāyāna schools. It is not used self-refentially by any school. An alternative modern Chinese term is 南传佛教 since the Mahāyāna was mostly propagated to the north and the non-Mahāyāna schools mostly to the south (BL 'Hīnayāna'; Faxiang 'Mahayana and Hinayana'; FGDB '小乘').
