Under the heading "Theravadin Meditation" I see a lot of material which might be of interest to someone, but which is hardly in the catagory of meditation as taught and understood in the Theravada.

Re: Puredhamma.net Warning !!!

Conclusion The Pure Dhamma website offers a variety of revisionist readings of the Pali Suttas based upon the site-owner’s (or his guru’s) claimed re-discovery of supposed hidden meanings of key Pali terms.
