But isn't Ajahn Vayama a woman?!
Women shouldn't be allowed to teach!
I knew someone who felt that way. Too funny.
I'll definitely give her a listen. Thank you for the suggestion.

Or do some of you prefer this kind of teaching approach?
Bhikkhu Bodhi is OK, but I don't understand how people obsess over him.
Lol. I really like Bhikkhu Bodhi because of how thorough and conservative he is. He knows a LOT about the dhamma, and he never tries to water down any of the teachings. This is why I, personally, respect him so much. He's not the most beautiful speaker, but you can gain a lot of knowledge from his books and talks.
I think Gil Fronsdal is under-rated by a lot of people merely because he doesn't have an orange robe and wail against materialism.
Gil Fronsdal is good too. I love how varied his guided meditations are. He's one of the few teachers I know of who gives guided meditations on something OTHER than the breath.
