What is Theravada and Mahayana and are they the same?

Shortly after the death of the Buddha, sectarisation began splitting first into 2 major groups, the conservative in the north and the liberal in the south. Over time, each of them again broke into smaller subgroups, which later either merged or became extinct. What remain today are the 2 major branches, the Theravada which spread along the southern route in Asia and the Mahayana in the north. Their differences may be in the rituals, ways of practice, and chanting but they embrace the same core values and teachings of the Buddha. Some Buddhists and scholars stress that the final quality of enlightenment of these two branches is not the same in quality but such later interpretation is divisive and false as enlightenment is enlightenment and there is no difference in the foundation of nor the state of attainment and enlightenment.
