TTT,

Yes, Ajaan Thanissaro makes himself a very accessible translator and teacher, and is evidently quite a resource for many. A small Dharma study-group associated with a new Zen Buddhist sangha here has included some of his recorded materials lately, and I've been finding his teachings helpful as a basis for information and a basis for discussion, especially on Theravada topics.

:Namaste:,

Theravada and mahayana teaching, one small and one big? I think Mahayana has more on motivation, style, like bodhicitta generation, then Theravada, but here are Saints there too, so a broder spectrum is possible there also.

Yes, of course. Buddhism is as broad as it has ever been. As medicine, it can treat a wide variety of degenerative ailments, and uncover full health and wellness of the original Mind.
