Oh, that probably explains it. I'll try ILL but I wouldn't get my hopes up about this one. Probably contacting the author is the only way.

How about this:
Humour in Pali literature and other essays by Walpola Rahula
?

Does such a thing exist? The Second and Fourth chapters have been translated by Vesna Wallace, and are available (separately) from Columbia. A draft translation of the Third chapter appears in Jensine Andresen's dissertation "Kalacakra: Textual and Ritual Perspectives", and parts of the First chapter appears in John R. Newman's dissertation "The Outer Wheel of Time: Varjayana Buddhist Cosmology in the Kalacakra Tantra".
I don't know of any translations of the Fifth chapter, or of the remainder of the first chapter untranslated by Newman.

Of course, the Vimalaprabha is available as "Ornament of Stainless Light" from Wisdom Pubs.

None of the above are terribly difficult to find-- both dissertations are on ProQuest, and the books are in print.

Good summary, but I think "Ornament of Stainless Light" from Wisdom Pubs might just be Khedrup Norsang Gyatso's commentary on the Vimalaprabha - not sure if it has the text itself. However, Wallace's 4th chapter features the Vimalaprabha.

In "Working Towards Enlightenment" and "To Realize Enlightenment", Master Nan Huai Chin kept quoting from a book, or book serie??(not sure)??, called "Record or Records of Pointing at the Moon" I don't think it's been translated into English, I'd still like to get my hands on a copy though. I'm taking Chinese at my University this fall!

Old e-sangha posts. Were they mirrored anywhere?

To anyone interested in Dzogchen, I would recommend taking up yegyal on his kind offer. I haven't had a chance to look over the translation yet, but the 50 pg introduction is a highly stimulating survey of the literary history of the Dzogchen literature in general building on Germano's work, the snying thig in particularly, and Garab Dorje's three points especially. Also interesting is the information about Khangsar Tenpe Wangchug, a still-living contemporary of Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok who is apparently held in similarly high regard in Tibet/Western China today.
