The Pali Collective

Published on 2012/04/26, by in Tech.

Another valuable resource for the Pali student is The Pali Collective Yahoo! group.  The group has about 1,200 members and has been in existence since the Winter solstice of 2000, according to the group profile.  Here’s an excerpt:

“[The Pali Collective] is a forum for anyone with an interest in Pali language and literature, as well as Pali translation works. The oldest Theravada literature is written in Pali. Understanding Pali is like holding the key to the rich contents of Pali Tipitaka. Although a large portion of it has been translated into several languages, it can be appreciated and understood in greater depth when studied in its original language.”

“Main discussion topics:

  1. Tipitaka and sutta study
  2. Pali language and literature
  3. Theravada Buddhism
  4. Samatha (Tranquillity) and Vipassana (Insight) meditation
  5. Sutta study tools and methodology
  6. Pali translation theory and practice”
