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

Metta,

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.
