Where can I study pali, off-line w/ a teacher?

Postby brother.peace » Sat Apr 30, 2011 7:46 pm

Dear Venerables and Friends,

If you have the time could you provide me with any information that you may have as to where I could go to study Pali (including but not limited to a monastic setting) . I am an English speaker but am not limited to staying in the US or Europe.

Thank you for your consideration.
Be well.

Hello BP,

See Pali Resources thread here:
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=950

Most people either enrol in a University course, or learn for free online:
All Things Pali discussion group
This 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
