ProgramReading Pāli Suttas (starting January)

Pāli is a sacred language of Buddhism and is known as the ‘mother tongue’ of the Buddha Sākyamuni Gotama (Māgadhī Bhāsā). The entire original teachings of the Buddha have been recorded in the Pāli language in the Tipiaka collections, namely: (a) Sutta, or discourses, (b) Vinaya or code of discipline, and Abhidhamma or psychological teachings. Therefore, for one who wishes to deeply understand the words of the Buddha, it is advisable to learn Pāli and then study the original suttas or discourses for one’s own correct understanding and liberation.
