Thanks Nibbida!

This was a complete accidental find. I've been listening to a few of the talks and I like them. The Visuddhimagga is so voluminous I'm finding it helpful to have someone give overview talks about it.

I've never heard Sayadaw U Silananda before. His voice/accent reminds me a little of Bhante Gunaratana, even though he's Burmese and Gunaratana is Sri Lankan.
