I'm a Theravadin, but I'd like some help finding some Mahayana-oriented resources.
There are a lot of extensive talks by Theravadin monks and scholars on Youtube and other websites, so as a Theravadin I have very easy access to various interpretations and explanations of Buddhist thought and practice from within my own tradition.
My question is, have Mahayana monastics made material like this similarly available and freely accessible? Are there prominent monks and nuns (other than the Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh) who lecture widely and extensively on the dhamma?
Robina Courtin is a gelugpa and student of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, she has some amount of talks on youtube on different Mahayana subject and little bit of vajrayana. you can find for your likings when you search her name on youtube.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche should have some Dharma talks, remember if you listen to dedicate to his long life
i will post more if i come up with more

Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....
In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….
May you have happiness and its causes,
May you be free from suffering and its causes
May you always be free from suffering and its causes
