OK, when will dinner be ready? Just kidding.

A word of "warning": One edition found sealed in a cave is about half the words comparing to the "popular" edition.
Many words (50%) have been added to the Sutra. (The Master did not write a thing. Only class notes from junior monks.)

There are two "fighting" schools of thoughts within the Sutra.
One follows Mahapraj˝aparamita Sutra (600 volumns/chapters) (the 4th period from Tien Tai view).
The other follows Nirvana Sutra (Mahaparinirvana Sutra) (the 5th period from Tien Tai view).
