Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi is highly skilled and experienced in teaching the Abhidhamma. He's my go-to-source for Abhidhamma material and teachings.

He made several Abhidhamma Study Retreats that can all be watched on Youtube and the book "Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma".

May this be of use to you.

  • He is praised for his scholarship but somewhat looked down by classical abhidhamma masters because his writing style and foot-notes indirectly arouse doubts about Abhidhamma itself.

  • I don't agree on that. I think he is one of the best Abhidhamma teachers to this day.
