Re: Help to distinguish lineages

Honestly, I don't think you should worry too much about distinguishing between lineages. Instead, just see what is available in your area, give them a look, and see what fits that way.

Re: Dharmakaya aspect?

Just wanted to point out that "Self-Arising Three-fold Embodiment of Enlightenment" is now available on Amazon.

That's the thing, if you try to evaluate them like that, there will always be deep tension. They don't have to make conceptual sense, we are not owed that. If we base our faith on those thin...
