Hi,

What concerns me is mixing up of two separate issues of how Vedic fire theory applies to nibbāna with fuel remaining and to nibbāna without fuel remaining according to Ṭhānissaro. When Ñāṇa was trying to present Ṭhānissaro views he muddled up this two issues. No wonder that conclusions which Ñāṇa drawn are — as he put it — “meaningless”. Yes, they are meaningless but they don't represent actual views of Ṭhānissaro.

Hi Ñāṇa,

Your stubbornness to acknowledge your minor mistake makes impossible for me to discuss further this issue. Hopefully I've shown to others that what's often discussed here as “Ṭhānissaro's views” is just a distorted rendering of his actual views.

My view is that to whatever extent Thanissaro Bhikkhu tries to describe post mortem experience he is wrong....(but then views are things to be abandoned).......other than any post mortem views that he might hold are there any other substantial issues raised here except for the usual quibbles about this or that.......

Greetings,

Thanissaro Bhikkhu's teachings in relation to nibbana have clearly come under much scrutiny here... I'm interested to know if anyone believes these dubious nibbana teachings in any way impact or compromise his teachings on the subject of anatta?
