Dear McTomas,

Therorise might be a bit of an overstatement word, but I did explore the
implications of phalaśrutis in my masters thesis on the Ārya Saṅghāṭa sūtra,
a Buddhist sūtra. Much of the sūtra itself can be read as an
extended phalaśruti. I found very little on the topic in the literature that
had been published at the time (2003).

If you are interested, it has the rather long title of *Reading the *Saṅgh
āṭasūtra: Time, Narrative and the Ethical Formation of Persons *in a
Mahāyāna Buddhist Text of Great Claims* and is available through the
University of Wisconsin-Madison library.  I can also direct you to an
electronic copy if you contact me off-list.

Warm regards,
