Re: Why choose Mahayana over Vajrayana?

Beyond this, there is the fact that Tibetan Buddhists such as myself only read the the smaller Sukhavativyuha. This does not mean that the large sūtra is invalid, it was just never translated into Tibetan, and thus, plays no part in Tibetan Buddhist understandings of Sukhavati. Interesting; any ide...

Shave or don't shave, its up to you. It only covers hair on the head, not facial hair, pubic hair, or body hair.
Any advice on sideburns, where headhair and beard meet/mingle?

Sapan and Harinanda

Quoting JKCL:

"Sakya Paṇḍita, who was the crown jewel of all the scholars of this world,
Defeated a heretic, Harinanda, in debate,
Something no one else is known to have done in Tibet".

Is there any more information on this event?
