It was a great pleasure for to meet you in Taiwan, and your help really made my stay so much more pleasant. Thanks for everything.
I promised to send you some of my papers so here it is. There are a few other things I don't have pdfs of, so when I'll get that taken care of I'll send those too. I'll be very happy to hear any responses you have. I'm attaching also the paper I presented in Taiwan, which is based on a book I completed this year.
Please acknowkedge receiving this email.
All the very best,
Dear Teri, (2011.7.1 PM 5:10)
It is also my pleasure and honour to greet you at IABS.
Actually, I was invited to read and check Chinese tripitakas side by side by Rod Bucknell who happened to be the moderator of your session.
I raised the event about the crossfire between two sides at your paper announcement. He mentioned that one side is Richard Gombrich, the other side which he is not quite sure who are they. But I am still not quite sure what is the argument in that crossfire.
I am one of few persons challenging against the so-called first council. I post it as more legends than history. Of course, without any doubt all the Teachings accredited to the Buddha(Even though some suttas spoken by his disciples can be traced as his teachings). But is there a historical event that some monks conducted an assembly and had it finalized as suttas(Nikayas or Agamas) right after Buddha's death?
