Re: Western Theravda organisations - propagation?

Dear Ciprian, we in Serbia are trying the same thing as you do, to establish a meditation center / monastery of the Theravada tradition. But it takes time. So, at the moment our Society hosts only visiting monks and do not have a resident one. Therefore I can offer you to participate in one of our s...

Re: Pali Primer Study Group (Lily de Silva)

I'm at lesson 11 and in the sentence No. 10 of the Excercise it seems there is a mistake: 10. Dhaññaṃ āka'nkhantassa purisassa dhanaṃ dātuṃ vāṇijo icchati. corn / wishing [for] / man / alms / to give / merchant / wishes The merchant wishes to give alms to the man who is wishing for corn/grain. dhana...

Hi Chris,

So far it was pretty easy...

Re: Pali Primer Study Group (Lily de Silva)

Many thanks Bhante.
That is what I thought. Just a matter of style.

What is the most important to me at this stage is just to be able to discern what form is every word in the sentence and what is it's function. Questions of style come latter :smile:

Lesson 9. Is there any rule according to which in the sentence 3.

Re: Pali Primer Study Group (Lily de Silva)

Many thanks Chris.

After reading both entries, I take that
1. tāpasa is a brahmin ascetic (in the fourth phase of his life, when he leaves his home) and
2. samaṇa is both Buddhist and non-Buddhist (and non-brahminic) ascetic, like jains, ajivakas etc.

Any comments?

Re: Pali Primer Study Group (Lily de Silva)

I have a question regarding word tāpasa = hermit
Is it kind of synonym with the word sāmana = ascetic?
