This means at present state the life span of 70 years are considered short . Most people can live for 60 to 70 over years only . 80 to 100 are lesser .

Re: Can a monk refuse to teach dhamma ?

Is this the fellow with the "secret teaching"? If so, why are Theravada Buddhists even giving him the time of day? It should be an absolute red flag for them. Right . I watched some insider videos but different to public talks on dhamma . My friends cant figure out whats wrong with him . :thanks:
