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

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

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.
