I have a need for an answer on a paper I am doing for a class in Buddhism. If anyone has any ideas, I would really appreciate you responding to me at this e-mail address: Vtibm@Juno.com.
The questions is, "The term "ingenuity" is a translation of the Sanskrit kausalya upaya, "skilful means." How is this notion of "ingenuity" important to Mahayana practice, and what role does it play in efforts of Mahayana followers to authenticate their reformulations of traditional teachings?" Thank you in advance. Jim
