Theravāda in the 21st century - modern applications of ancient wisdom
I follow this, what does it make me?
Three marks of existence
Karma and rebirth
The four noble truths
The Noble Eightfold Path
P.S. I don't worship any image or statue of Buddha, I do not make offerings or pray for blessings and fortune to Buddha statues or any other rituals.

I selected "Classical Theravada" based on some sources (Bhikkhu Bōdhi, Ñyānapōnika Thera, Rērukāne Chandavimala Thera, Viṣuddhimagga based material, etc) - and "Suttanta" (Thanissaro Bhikkhu, Katukurundē Ñānānanda Thera), also "Sri Lankan" (all of the above sources except for Thanissaro Bhikkhu), and capped it all off with "Theravada in general".
In future I plan to read more matertial from the many wonderful Burmese Sayādaw's so then I'd have to include "Burmese" as well.
