just a suggestion: I don't think your title accurately reflects the subject matter being discussed. 'The Broken Buddha' is a book,
and it's neither a scandal, nor is it scandalous. 'Controversial'
might be a more fitting term, imo. But really, many of the issues Ven. Dhammika raises are quite common knowledge nowadays. What would be scandalous, would be if he encouraged readers to abandon Buddhism on the basis of these problems - but he does no such thing, and in my case I will disclose that this book spurred me to delve more deeply into, and rely on, the Pali Canon as the ultimate authority
in matters of doctrine, with individual teachers' primary role now being to help me understand and interpret it for myself. The end result of reading his book, has been a strengthening and deepening of my conviction in the Buddha Dhamma.
