Just to add, it is a bit annoying to have people say that Buddhadasa, Nanavira, or whomever else really has it in hand and poop on Vens Bodhi, Nyanaponika and whomever else who does not toe the particular line imagined of whatever particular teacher.

Greetings Tilt,

No, I was quoting the right thing.

From here - viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4791&start=60#p74116 - we were clearly talking of ven. Nyanaponika, not ven. Bodhi.

Metta,
Retro. :)
