I'm not sparking a debate here. I began reading erm, troubling things, shall we say about the man. Whilst I have been told most of the knowledge in his introductory book "Modern Buddhism" is orthodox I would still like to find some different reading materials introducing Buddhism, especially geared more towards Mahayana Buddhism. I find Mahayana Buddhism most suited to my person but I would also like to compare view points and make up my own mind.

Any suggestions are greatly appeciated.

Namaste,

Joshua.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."
