: Hi Mr. Hebat,
: Can I have the full name or Yogi Chen please?
(Just in case people don't come back before the board is closed...)
As to the issue on this thread, I have 2 cents worth of opinion.
In Hwa Yen (Flower Garland), the motto is: don't act like a poor kid counting other people's money.
Sometimes, we like to 'talk' about how the rich guys make their fortunes. There is nothing wrong with it. Just don't stop there. Put it to daily practice.
As to 2 vehicles, 3 vehicles, 5 vehicles, or 1 vehicle, I go with The Lotus Sutra. The only reason for Buddha to "hang around" on earth after his enlightenment is to teach people to become Buddhas, nothing less.
However, he is more than happy to teach whatever people wants to learn. Force what he knew to people before they are ready did not work. He can only teach whatever the learner is ready for.
Count your own money! You know you would have to do that sooner or later. That's my 2 cents.
