First of all, Paul did give some, and so have I. Her definition
of nirmanakaya and her preentation of the three Bodies of
Buddha, for example, are plain wrong. Thus she gave us an
"untruth."  It remains to be seen whether she deliberately
lied or was honestly mistaken or was mislead by her interpretors.
Giving out an untruth does not equate to a deliberate lie (for
which she would have had no real reason).
