enlightenment certificate

In the course of scrounging around in an overstuffed basement today while looking for some old documents, I did not find the documents (as I said, the place is overstuffed) but I did find a cheaply-framed version of what is below.

It's old -- probably from the late 1970's or early 1980's. Who wrote it, I haven't got a clue (I know I didn't), but it does stand as a reminder that 'even then' there were those among us who harbored a certain skepticism about the sometimes-sacrosanct lineage and/or attainment factors in 'Buddhism.'

I do cherish my "Hungry Ghost" certificate, but I haven't found it yet.
