Summary
Examines the graduated paths of Mah y{u02C9}n{u02C9}a and Vajrayn{u02C9}a Buddhism and the instantaneous paths of Ch'an/Zen, rDzogs chen and Mahm{u02C9}udr.{u02C9} The main contention between these approaches relates to how the mental defilements are to be purified and how the positive qualities of Buddhahood are to be realised. After comparing and examining the paths it is argued that the polarisation of the "sudden" and "gradual" approaches is the result of the critical philosophies of late Indian and Tibetan Buddhism, rather than a real spiritual dilemma for adherents of either path
