Sample text

The clearest statement of his own views on the matter appears in a letter of 16 May, 1963. “Do not think,” he writes, “that I regard suicide as praiseworthy—that there can easily be an element of weakness in it, I am the first to admit… but I certainly regard it as preferable to a number of other possibilities. , 381. ’ The greatest irony of this story is how a passage from a sutta saved an Italian fascist from committing suicide, in gratitude for which he wrote a book that impelled an English army officer to become a bhikkhu, who eventually committed suicide with the conviction that it was fully justified by the suttas.

92 How does one decide whether another person really is a stream entrant or whether they are deluding themselves? According to the suttas, only an ārya can recognise another ārya. It would follow, therefore, that only a bona fide ārya would have the authority to deny Nanavira’s claim. But then the same questions would arise with regard to that person, which would require the authority of yet another bona fide ārya, and so on ad infinitum. Subjectively, however, the attainment of stream entry can be validated by a discernible and definitive psychological change.
