The one comparative book I could find on the subject and it happened to be written by my tutorial professor, the one marking the paper.
HAHA. Academia..."it's a small world after all"...

I couldn't face the boredom so I preferred your approach - think about it and then hunt references, knowing that I you thought of something, chances were Google would tell me about 871,342 who thought of it earlier :)
Even as a high school student I do that...I get a hunch and then follow it...often I learn quite a bit about a subject in that investigative phase - things that the teachers seem to strangely leave out.

This book was comparing the methodology of Advaita Vedanta Hinduism and Zen Buddhism, my essay was a comparative piece on plausibility.

Are you studying philosophy?...and how do you see your future after you have finished your course?...and how are those complex Oriental spiritual traditions racking your brains?
