When the Arahant goes Bodhisattva... what ever connects the Sangha is good.
Just that! *smile*


BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_

Thanks for posting the link to Ajahn Amaro's book, Hanzze.

After reading it years ago, I began attending a Dzogchen group (following Chogyal Namkhai Norbu) here and saw many similarities between Theravada and Dzogchen.

In the end, I came back to the bare-bones, do-it-yourself, Theravada rather than the later, more distant in time from the Buddha, Dzogchen teachings.
I have an admiration and respect for Dzogchen.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

On the subject of conciliatory comparison and contrast between Mahayana and Theravada is this absolutely excellent article by the Maha Thera Awsum Oldie Bhikkhu Bodhi.
