Last Friday we started our next program of commentarial Pali. We are reading the Nidanakatha (preamble) to the Digha Nikaya commentary. This relates how the Buddhist canon was first compiled and explains its classification, etc. For those who want to follow, here is the link in my Dropbox account:

Most participants haven't studied Pali grammar, but they benefit from the classes anyway, so do not be intimidated

Thanks Tilt!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
