If anyone has been following this topic with one eye but has yet to check out any of the works of Bhikkhu Ñanananda or is waiting for texts to arrive in the mailbox, can I recommend investing a little bit of time to read this Dhamma Talk...Nibbàna Sermon 22http://www.beyondthenet.net/calm/nibbana22.htm
It's one of a long series, and each sermon feeds into the next, but I think in this sermon in particular, Bhikkhu Ñanananda really captures the profound essence of the Dhamma. At every turn, Bhikkhu Ñanananda turns an insightful eye to some of the deepest and revolutionary aspects of the Buddha's teaching.
