I hope this message finds everyone well! It's been so long since I logged on here, I thought I may as well introduce myself all over again :)

For those who remember me, grad school is going well and I've recently started studying Sanskrit and Hindi (hope that doesn't make me forget my Pali).

I'm looking forward to getting involved in discussions again very soon!

Welcome back.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Welcome Back!
I believe One member here (kare) has said that sanskrit can aid in pali translating, well those are my words recollected from a thread.

but even if that is inaccurate I hope youfind these languages useful to understanding the path.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
