Fortunately, the forum is an entertaining outlet for my writing and reading 
desires without the give and take over an interesting book. 

If no one has read that book, another interesting book i have recently finished 
is the translation and explication of the Heart Sutra by Red Pine.  He places 
the Sutra in the context of the early Theravada school debating the early 
Mahayanists about the pervasiveness of shunyata. There was some Theravada 
school called the Sarvastivadins that more or less said emptiness applied to 
our selves and our bodies and so on but not to enlightenment. Any ways, it was 
interesting that the lines that end up being so beautiful were written as a 
part of some two thousand year old flame war or its old fashioned equivalent. 
His translation, as usual, is into smooth modern English.
