That's a pretty broad request... any specific aspect of the Prajnaparamita texts?

Metta,

parsticular aspect?! Are there many? Oh dear, I should study it better. But is it possible to make a general overview?
I guess I haven't properly prepared for this big discussion, but I hope I could get some points. :shrug:

Naw. They are all in - not surprisingly - perfect agreement.
>> Do you see a man wise [enlightened/ariya] in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.<< -- Proverbs 26:12

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.
