    I don't know where you got that view. The Mahayana also speaks of Pratyeka Buddha's who individually obtain moskva by not becoming Bodhisattva. There are also I believe several other unique individual conditionals that also allow Moscva before all others. The Vow of the Bodhisattva "return" is standard in both lay and left home in Mahayana. Hinayana has view of each person is on the gradual path and they don't have the Bodhisattva Tradition as the sudden school of Mahayana. In the Theosophical teaching the "return" is ingrained for us and is described as the "Selfless Service to Mankind" that dictates our choice option as the ideal in the samsaric journey. The Mahayana is called Sudden School and the Greater Vehicle and the Hinayana is called the Gradual School and the lesser Vehicle.

  I think people are forced to become apologists in many cases due to existential investment even when the reality is markedly removed from their cherished agreements.  

  It seems everyone is in some form of denial in regards to the Tashi lama. My earlier point is made.

The number of times that this job has been finished in all the rounds 
and races is countless times, check it out in the akashic records if 
you dont believe me. The Dalai Lama knows this and sees the cosmic 
joke in it.

The thought that in order for anyone to be freed from the wheel 
everyone must be freed from it according to the mahayana school. The 
hinayana school on the other hand believes that we can free ourselves 
from the rounds and if we return as a bodhisattva to save others it 
is by our own choice.
