Which leads to my important question from a previous post here, what exact entity/organization, especially in the Western world, that will carry out the review/admonishing of that modernist bhikkhu for publicising his reckless and irresponsible view? Based on another thread here which says that Ven. Brahm's no longer concerened about what other people think of him, it seems that due to his high ranking and status, he's no longer subjected to the practice of Pavvarana!
