Wonderful Dhammadapa study site

Post by phil » Tue Mar 03, 2009 10:35 am

Hi all.

I'm crazy about this website. It contains detailed grammar notes for each Dhammapada verse, and even an audio clip of each.

Thanks phil!

Does look to be very good. Thanks

I posted a similar one on the story thread wish there were more like these though
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

My mistake. Kind of got confused by the RC, not noticing that there was no P. It seemed rather odd that the ChiComs would be so supportive of the Dharma like this

Greetings Phil.

That looks like a good little corner of that website. Nice find. I'll be sure to add it to...

Hi all

Back after some time away.

I'd like to take the liberty of bumping this thread I started because I continue to find the linked page so helpful. For those who want to study Pali but don't have the time or discipline to follow one of grammar primers, downloading the audio clips into your i-pod is really amazing. You internalize the verses, and they really fuel your practice. There are certain verses that keep resonating like crazy. As an ESL teacher, I always tell students that by listening and shadowing (repeating after) recorded English, they can pick up a lot of the grammar without studying it, "organically" I say, and while that is a fuzzy overstatement I have a feeling something like that is at work.

In any case, I really recommend downloading the "sentence pronunciation" clip that is given for each verse. Great boost behind one's practice...

Metta,

Phil

Thanks Phil! :twothumbsup:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
