I can find little to quarrel with in the above. You have given a veru sophisticated account of Buddhist thinking. mNow I realixe that not all Buddhists share your views, like the Dai Lama for example. But my views are closer to yours than his.

But suppose we gave a similarly sophisticated rendition of Christianity. We could align Christian theology with the Buddhist theology you just presented. Jesus is then a bodhisattva who has appeared in order to help others. The Holy Spirit could be a manifestation of the Dharmakaya.

And of course god the Father is Brahma, like the Greek Zeus, a literal father in heaven.

On this basis there is not that much difference between Buddhism and Christianity, as compared to say Judiaism or Islam.
