Not really sources I used for this, so they aren't cited.

But, nevermind; I thought this would be helpful or interesting, but it's caused naught but head pain and stress for me. So I'm gonna let this stupid thing die, and we can all move on.

I shrug my shoulders. Obviously you did not use them. My point is that you have with these authors some significant historical discussions, which would be useful for your project.

Peter Harvey's excellent An Introduction to Buddhism: Teachings, History and Practices has done much of this work, and would be a great resource.

Thanks for the resource. It's just that without the references and without knowing your workflow, it isn't really possible to completely rely on the accuracy of the dates and events you provided. I'm guessing you would probably think similarly if it were someone else posting a compilation without any references.

Take care.
