The Hermit of Būndala
Biography of Ñāṇavīra Thera, with reflections on his life and work
An attempt to compile all that is known about Ñāṇavīra’s life and thought. The book retells stories from after his death, about controversies, lost or burned letters, his surviving legacy, and the growth of interest in these writings till the present time.
Clearing the Path
Clearing the Path contains the text of Ñāṇavīra's revised Notes on Dhamma (1960-1965) together with 149 letters of varying lengths written by Ñāṇavīra to nine correspondents, which serve (as the author himself stated) as a commentary on the Notes. The texts are scrupulously edited, extensively annotated and cross-referenced by means of a comprehensive index.
Seeking the Path
Early Writings (1954-1960) & Marginalia
Seeking the Path consists of Ñāṇavīra's extensive correspondence with Ñaṇamoli Thera from 1954-1959. These letters shed considerable light on the relations between the two men and provide a wealth of material on the formation of Ñāṇavīra's thought prior to his 'stream entry'. The remainder of the volume includes two early essays (Nibbana and Anatta and Sketch for a Proof of Rebirth) as well as notes from a Commonplace Book and Marginalia from books owned by Ñāṇavīra.
Notes on Dhamma
The principal aim of these Notes on Dhamma is to point out certain current misinterpretations, mostly traditional, of the Pali Suttas, and to offer in their place something certainly less easy but perhaps also less inadequate.
Notizen zu Dhamma
und andere Schriften
Die Notizen versuchen, eine intellektuelle Grundlage für das Verständnis der Suttas zu schaffen, ohne dabei saddhâ (Vertrauen) preiszugeben. Sie wurden zu dem Zweck geschrieben, eine ganze Menge toter Materie wegzuräumen, die die Suttas erstickt.
