Wonderful Dhammadapa study site

Postby phil » Tue Mar 03, 2009 10:35 am

Hi all.

I'm crazy about this website. It contains detailed grammar notes for each Dhammapada verse, and even an audio clip of each.

Metta,

Phil
I hope that every time I post it will be accompanied by a wish for the wellbeing of everyone in this sangha and all beings.
(so I don't have to write "metta" every time!)

Interesting to see what comes of the PRC.

Does look to be very good. Thanks

My mistake. Kind of got confused by the RC, not noticing that there was no P. It seemed rather odd that the ChiComs would be so supportive of the Dharma like this

Greetings Phil.

That looks like a good little corner of that website. Nice find. I'll be sure to add it to...

... later today (or tomorrow)

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi all

Back after some time away.

I'd like to take the liberty of bumping this thread I started because I continue to find the linked page so helpful. For those who want to study Pali but don't have the time or discipline to follow one of grammar primers, downloading the audio clips into your i-pod is really amazing. You internalize the verses, and they really fuel your practice. There are certain verses that keep resonating like crazy. As an ESL teacher, I always tell students that by listening and shadowing (repeating after) recorded English, they can pick up a lot of the grammar without studying it, "organically" I say, and while that is a fuzzy overstatement I have a feeling something like that is at work.

In any case, I really recommend downloading the "sentence pronunciation" clip that is given for each verse. Great boost behind one's practice...

Metta,

Phil
I hope that every time I post it will be accompanied by a wish for the wellbeing of everyone in this sangha and all beings.
(so I don't have to write "metta" every time!)

Thanks Phil! :twothumbsup:
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
