starting with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9225-jtdm94
I haven’t watched this. Maybe YOU can review it!

May I “ho ho ho” heartily suggest you download these two pdf:
The Lankavatarasutra in Early Indian Madhyamaka Literature by Christian Lindtner, Copenhagen. Asiatiche Studien, XLV, 1 (1992), pp.244-279.
A Note on Vasubandhu and the Lankavatarasutra by Lambert Schmithausen, Hamburg. Asiatiche Studien, 46.1, 1992, pp.392-397.
Is Red Pine publishing a new edition? When is it due? Hmmm - Amazon has it down for 24 Jan 2012 but not an ebook version yet.
