there's the whole dhammapada with detailed analysis and translation of the pali text. Great job done

Wonderful! Thanks Dukkhanirodha!

I've wanted to understand the pronounciations (after all - wasn't writing Pali a kludge? - wasn't it meant to be spoken not written?) - tried to get 'how to speak it' going here but no one seemed to really be interested - this resource is awesome!

If there is anyone out there familiar with the pronounciation - is the above link in a particular dialect?

Wow, that is tremendous, thanks Dukkhanirodha!

If anyone can help -- when I click on the links at the bottom under pronunciation, the page refreshes and the address changes to a .wav, so I'm guessing I should be hearing an audio pronunciation, is that what you're getting? And if so, any ideas on why I'm not?

Howdy Tex!
Speaker turned on? OOuucchhh! :tongue:

Yes, i just tried the first gatha - Sentence pronunciation - it pulls up a .wav - surely you have quickTime or something associated with .wav files? Hmm... Slow connection? Can you download it to your computer?

Yeah, it works if I save the clip and use a player to open it. Just seemed like the intention on the site was to stream it and I thought I didn't have something set correctly.

No worries, though, this works, thanks!
