Thanks for the links. However, with all due respect to my rl Mahayana friends and teachers, who I still consider my dharma brothers, I am trying to stay away from Mahayana theory and polemic right now. Not because I'm closed-minded; I just don't want to get into my 500th debate about crazy wisdom and the Lotus Sutra.
Thanks all again for the welcomes.
