Re: [Pali] Re: NY Times Article
- Dear Kevin,
without having read the NY Times article, but having met Professor Lopez,
and having read most of his published works, I can state that he is probably
the epitome of what all educational systems should be about. I suggest that
you look up some of his works, whilst bearing in mind that his particular
field of expertise is not Thai Buddhism. I hope that you will find his
writing accessible, informative and enjoyable.
With best wishes,

Thanks for your reply. As I said, I did not wish to judge Professor Lopez
harshly. And I hope that my distrust of him was more an institutional
prejudice than a personal prejudice. Also, I did admit that, even though I
am a westerner, I view western ���experts��� with a very suspicious eye. To
that end, your personal endorsement���even though we have never met���goes
much further with me than an article or book jacket. Perhaps I will have
the local library order in one of his books. Do you have a particular title

- Dear Dimitri,
I am glad you found the Patis. Magga text useful,
P.S. By the way, I liked Caebhin's Buddha image, computer designed, I saved
it in my files.
