As a Bhikku, many people will ask you similar questions.
I think the Venerable has shared some interesting thoughts with us on on this and other threads.
There is no disputing that, and I never implied the contrary...
do not demand answer anymore from the monk since I don't wish him any more (unintentional) embarrassment caused by my questions. Besides, from his name, Akiñcana, which means "having nothing", it's quite clear he has nothing to say. For your curiosity I think you can PM him.
I thought ArkA and Aki are the same person. They are both monks, I thought ArkA uses another username, Aki. After reading their introduction I found they are not the same person. Aki (which I thought the same as ArkA) asked about faith
. From ArkA's signature:
"Silence is the language of God; all else is poor translation."
"God" in a monk's signature, his faith is highly questionable to me. My questions was intended for ArkA (not Aki) for a reason, i.e. I just wanted to hear what he has to say, from a monk with "God" in his signature. I thought that could be interesting to hear.
Edited: something to add:
So let this matter to be responded by ArkA. In his signature he says: I'll restart my yearlong meditation retreat on 15th June 2014, hence will not be here
. It means I have to wait until he comes back from retreat.
