I recently received word of this upcoming residential course:
Dear Pāli Students,
We are happy to announce a 10-day residential Pāli workshop to be held in California, USA from Sept 23 – Oct 4, 2012.
For more details, including instructions on how to apply, please download this flyer:
With best wishes,
This month’s issue of the Full Moon Insight Journal includes a study of the Pali verses from the Dhammapada 13 by Andrew Olendski. Of interest to the Pali student are detailed footnotes on the translation of the Pali into English.
An audio recording of the Pali verse is available for streaming thanks to Dharma Seed
evaṃ abhāvitaṃ cittaṃ
Just as rain fully penetrates
A house that has been poorly roofed,
So passion fully penetrates
A mind that’s poorly developed
vuṭṭhi na samativijjhati
evaṃ subhāvitaṃ cittaṃ
rāgo na samativijjhatī ti
Just as rain cannot penetrate
A house that has been well roofed,
So too no passion penetrates
A mind that is well developed.
