I dont know...I found Thornley's descriptions of Zen very easy to understand. Not that I care for Zen beyond certain aesthetic considerations.
However, for Far East Discordians....how would we know? Has anyone ever bothered to translate the PD into Japanese or Cantonese, and made sure its promoted on sites in those languages? I know davedim planned to do a Japanese translation...but I havent seen any others. There are no Hebrew, Arabic, Swahili, Punjabi or Bhasa Indonesia translations of the PD either (there may be a Russian one, however).
Until we actually try, I couldn't possibly comment one way or another.
I have considered translating it into Indonesian and kicking up a storm with their religious nutters, and then rely on the Australian government to save me (think of the fun that would be!) but it not a definite plan yet.
