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

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80

Thanks Tilt!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
