If anyone has been following this topic with one eye but has yet to check out any of the works of Bhikkhu Ñanananda or is waiting for texts to arrive in the mailbox, can I recommend investing a little bit of time to read this Dhamma Talk...Nibbàna Sermon 22http://www.beyondthenet.net/calm/nibbana22.htm
It's one of a long series, and each sermon feeds into the next, but I think in this sermon in particular, Bhikkhu Ñanananda really captures the profound essence of the Dhamma. At every turn, Bhikkhu Ñanananda turns an insightful eye to some of the deepest and revolutionary aspects of the Buddha's teaching.

"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'." (Snp 3.6)
"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
