The abstracts look very interesting, especially to me Robert Sharfs on Hosso/Yogacara and phenomenology, considering Lusthaus wrote a big big book on that topic. Sharf was ordained in the Hosso sect and did his early work at Kofukuji so I'm looking foward to reading his critique.

so much, so interesting, wish I were going!

and here is a link where you can download a number of Sharf's articles:

Namu Myoho Renge Kyo
The gist of these passages is that the Buddha's practice as the cause and His virtue as the effect are altogether contained in the five characters of "Myo-ho ren-ge kyo". If we uphold the five characters, the merits of those cause and effect are naturally transferred to us. (NOPPA D2, P146)
