A quick note to listeners:
This talk is directed at Western monks living in England. Notably Ajahn Sumedho participates in this discussion.
There is reference to ‘pacceka-buddhas’ in this talk. This means ‘private buddhas’ who are fully self-awakened buddhas that live in different eras. However, they do not go on to teach and start a Sasana in which millions of beings will follow the teachings and practice of a fully self-awakened Buddha and find their own awakening. They only become awakened but do not teach.
