I read one of Ven. Maha Boowa's books while I was in an aranya in Sri Lanka in the '90's. It seemed pretty clear that he believed in an atta, and thus was a heretic by Buddhist standards. He said that one should let all of the false views of self come to their demise, and what was left was the true self. This did not seem to be a method of discovering not-self, it seemed like discovering the true self was the end goal for him.kirk5a wrote:"When this nature disintegrates after having been destroyed by discernment, a nature marvelous far above and beyond any conventional reality will appear in full measure. At the same moment, we will see the harm of what is harmful and the benefits of what is beneficial. The awareness of release will appear as dhammo padipo -- the brightness of the Dhamma -- in full radiance, like the sun that, when unobscured by clouds, lets the world receive the full radiance of its light. The result is that the awareness of release appears plainly to the heart of the meditator the moment unawareness has disbanded."

I therefore would respectfully not regard that monk as an authority on anything other than his own views.
