Hi Tilt

You and others have persistently asked questions around his view and he has given you answers. What do you think a dhamma instructor does when he meets a person for meditation instruction? He persistently asks questions to determine the level of understanding of the meditator- and diagnoses the problem. It is true no one asked my opinion -but I am going to give it anyway. If you don't want it - dont listen to what I have to say. Inability to take advice, while great for your persona, is not so great for the dhamma.

You did more than give advice. It is inappropriate.

I don't think he asked you to be his teacher, I don't think he asked for your advice on his meditation, and I don't think he said anything about how his meditation was going, this thread was not about his meditation or anyone elses specifically.
