That's a pretty broad request... any specific aspect of the Prajnaparamita texts?

Metta,

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

parsticular aspect?! Are there many? Oh dear, I should study it better. But is it possible to make a general overview?
I guess I haven't properly prepared for this big discussion, but I hope I could get some points. :shrug:

Naw. They are all in - not surprisingly - perfect agreement.
