Audio recording of Dhammapada in Pali?

Post by David2 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 10:58 am


I am at the beginning of learning some Pali.
At the moment I am trying to read/ understand the Dhammapada in Pali, does anyone know where I can find a recitation recording of it on the internet (in Pali)? My aim is to learn the pronunciation.

I can upload a clear but slow recording, done by one monk. Good for pronunciation.
but I can't upload till 20th october, when I get to a computer with a better data plan.

A link to Venerable Nauyane Ariyadhamma Maha Swaminwahanse chanting Dhammapada in Pali on this page:

Another great resource is an email list that I'm subscribed to that sends out a short dhamma verse every day with pali text, english translation, and audio, often uses dhammapada as it's source. I highly recommend it, it's a great learning tool.

There is a full version recited by Bhante Uparatana, very beautiful, in Sri Lankan slow wavery style.
