Truly apologize for one last clarification as I'm feel uncomfortable in a discussion that feels like trying to decide which facet of the many-faceted diamond is the "correct" one. Again, I'm basing my understanding not on a body of scripture but on a body of lineage teachings about the subject which doesn't lend itself to the presentation of a simple scripture/policy statement. Simply, I come to my understanding that ultimate truth has no fixed abiding place, empty of  emptiness, ultimately transcending any quality you seek to imbue it with, any statement you wish to make of it-inconceivable . In that, any statement, such as to the humanity of the Buddha, becomes a matter of its referential integrity, a matter of deriving meaning from context. If one understands the non-abiding, one establishes no dichotomy and one can reconcile that which on the face of it seem to be contradictory statements.

Peace out
