[Buddha-l] Abdhidharma vindicated once again

Thanks Jamie--but probably I won't read these because for one
thing I'm not impressed by Mahayana, and for another, such
philosophical issues represent for me the least interesting
practice of academics, not ordinary human life, for which I still
think that Buddhism in its simpler, more straightforward modes,
has beneficial things to say.

If you decide to get into _On Being Buddha_, I recommend reading
it together w/ John Makransky's _Buddhahood Embodied_. They both
come to pretty similar conclusions about what a Buddha is (in the
developed Mahayana tradition), but John, coming from a Tibetan
Dzogchen point of view, has a rather different take on what it
all means.
