One more point: in the first session some people find it easier if they copy the text and mnemonicons first, leaving the oral recital (stage 2) until last. Try both and see what works for you.

Thanks again, Bhante.

Still working on this.

Its amazing how many people truly have Dhammapada memorized, makes me wish I had heard it on the radio as a kid instead of the silly songs I still have memorized from that time period.
