That has its own thread. There is no need to debate it again here.
Agreed, I was interested in how two different lists of the 5 Acts could arise, not in a discussion of social issues (that already happened).
Master Hua was a fine teacher and I have great respect for the discipline and diligence in his community. We have a tendency in the west to completely write someone off because of one thing they said that we don't agree with, rather than seeing them as a complex figure with various characteristics. (the threads on Pabongkhapa tend to go in this direction too).
Also Master Hua was a product of a different time and place, and in some ways very open-minded if you look at how he dealt with Westerners, for example. I would argue no other eminent figure in Chinese Buddhism has thus far been as open and committed to training Westerners as he was.
