Although I would hardly be prepared to cite LoN as an authoritative
source on Budhism.

Heretics. They're everywhere. The more wacky pseudo-philosophies we've
got for them, the better.

Ouch - not from me. To quote my original post on the subject :

"Malkioni saints remind me vaguely of the boddhisattva of Mahayana
Buddhism, who chose not to enter nirvana in order to save others."

The operative words being 'vaguely' and 'remind'.

Urgh.... I'm hit......... Goodbye cruel world.....

Remember me fondly....
