It's kind of interesting in one way. But what is perhaps more interesting in my mind is how many conceive of Chinese and Tibetan Buddhism as distinction from each other in the first place, and that a combination is therefore "ecumenial".
This might sound rather sectarian...
No, it just sounds rather uninformed about Tibetan Buddhism.
Yes, I am fairly uninformed about Tibetan Buddhism.
So, please feel free to add, the relationship during the Yuan and Qing
would be particularly interesting to look into.
I merely wished to emphasize that Yogi Chen's approach is not at all uncommon,
and such approaches have been seen in China for hundreds of years.
(But since the comments on Chen have since disappeared from the
quoted text, it's starting to look a bit out of context.)
I don't mean to go as far as saying that there is no difference,
that would be the other extreme.
