Greetings SDA, Thanks for your comment. It shows you think you know what the Venerable didn't shared. I trust that if it were an "obsession" of his, then he would have actually written about it ad nauseam , much like you do. Yet, he didn't, so I deduce that it wasn't an obsession of his. Further, t...

Greetings, He taught "not self", anatta . This makes him no different to many other teachers who regard the Dhamma as being phenomenological rather than ontological.
