This page contains a fairly random list of study resources. Many of them are old discussion papers which may conceivably be viewed as sources for ideas and discussion but which are certainly not authoritative. Caveat emptor. Other resources are links to sites which are unofficial or from other sanghas or traditions. The intention is to provide different and interesting approaches to a wide range of study topics.
