An exceptional guy this Nanananda. Many thanks for that. :bow:
Do you - or anyone else - know perchance how old he is now?

Hi Dhammabodhi,

Thanks for the reminder. Here is some previous discussion:
http://www.dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.ph ... 120#p93042

And I've made a lot of use of Ven Nananda's scholarly analyses in the Study Group over the past few months:

Just a quick read but something about it does not ring true.
Maybe it is just my distrustful nature. Or my lack of Pali. But I'd like know more about this Bkikkhu Yogananda before reading through the entire interview.

Forget I spoke Geoff. I dont have the neccessary philological, philosophical or historical resources to take a view.

Hi all,

I have no clue who Bhikkhu Yogananda is and did not try to find out, since I wasn't interested. From his website the only information available is that he is a monk in a forest monastery in Sri Lanka.

Personally I did not find anything fishy in the articles, I was rather struck by their erudite nature.

I do have a question for those who know Pali: what does paccaya mean?

Thanks :anjali:

His interview with Ven. Ñanananda has been included in the 'Nibbana, the Mind Stilled' book.

Yes, but in my reading of his texts he also very clear that it would be a mistake to see it all as illusion.

Best Wishes,

Agreed, Mike. I've taken another look, and again it just doesn't seem right. The voice presented as Nanananda's doesn't sound like his writings; his viewpoints seem tailored to an agenda.

An agenda meant to diminish, obscure, and distort.
That is just an opinion, and you, Geoff, are much more educated in these matters. I'll rely on your opinion. Do you think it is real, and worth reading? If so, I'll give it another try.
