About the Author
David Reynolds, alias Paññobhāsa, and formerly known as Paññobhāsa Bhikkhu, is an American-born Theravada Buddhist philosopher and teacher. Up until recently he was a monk with thirty years seniority in the ordained Sangha, with most of that time spent in the forests of Burma, and about half of it spent living and meditating alone in caves. After a few years at a monastery in the declining state of California he has migrated across the USA and is setting himself up in a new, freer lay life in Greenville, South Carolina where he continues to write and teach. He has long been pretty well fed up with political correctness, and is moved to make a stand.

Oh also! My new book:
This is the first in a series of essay collections on Buddhist and otherwise philosophical topics. This volume covers a range of subjects emphasizing Theravada Buddhist philosophy, meditation, the nature of the earliest Buddhism, and some of the more arcane aspects of ancient Theravada Buddhist monasticism. Available on Amazon.com HERE
or here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B096ZHKY9D
The second volume, being a more wide-ranging collection of philosophical essays: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B097XGM71P/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=philosophical+dharma&qid=1624827134&s=books&sr=1-1
And the third volume, “Buddhist Ethics, Buddhist Practice”: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0991DQBLZ?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860
They can be read in any order, and it is not necessary at all to read the first before reading the second, or third. They are collections of essays roughly organized by general theme, and I trust anyone who reads them will find something of value, even if it is nothing more than challenging established views and nudging one out of an ideological rut or two.
