Venerable Ñāṇasuci had posted this documentary in another thread, but I wanted to include it here as well in case there were some who had not seen it. Congrats to Tom Rosenberg for this short, but excellent film.

Bhikkhu Hiriko - Ñāṇasuci

The experts do not say that one is a sage in this world because of view, or learning, or knowledge, Nanda.
I call them sages who wander without association, without affliction, without desire.

The Buddha, Sn.V.8.2 (1078)

Did Ven. Ñānavīra ever write any detailed meditation instructions? I only remember seeing one letter regarding meditation from him, and in it he gave pretty standard Satipaṭṭāna instructions.
"Delighting in existence, O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence, they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind."
- It. p 43
