Does Tibetan Buddhism have a path to enlightenment?
I am happy to post the comment from Tricycle (scroll down), but I must disavow it at once, since I am not in the buddhism/tibetan buddhism promo game.
I think the issue of the bodhissattwas is confusing to many who become involved in Tibetan cultism overseas. The whole legacy is puzzling, and revolves around a small elite: nota bene. Be a tourist, but if you are on the path to enlightenment seek elsewhere.
