Who wants to learn Pali?

Same here, if not too late, I’d like to register my interest to join this course, thanks.


I would appreciate if the course work and content was posted after the course concludes for those who wish to go at their own pace.


Any updates on this? :slight_smile:


Ven @sujato you have quite a number of keen students waiting to know the start date. :pray:


I want to participate if it’s still possible. I would prefer European time, but maybe I can manage US time too.


Thank you for considering offering this! I would be interested, depending on the day/time. :pray:


I do hope that the Pali learning project hasn’t evaporated? I have my copy of Warder in hand, and am passionately interested in the Therigatha verses—there are a number of excellent translations available, but reading such texts in the original allows one to breathe the very air of the time and place!

The fellowship of a class here would give me the extra moral energy to undertake this now.


Folks, Bhante has been cranking out these four hour long Early Buddhist meditation workshops on YouTube at a steady rate. I think he’s a little busy and already knows we want to learn Pali. Patience?

If you really really cannot wait to get started… Start:



I’m just getting back into a Suttacentral habit and saw this topic. Count me in- depending on the start date.

I was worried I had missed the course, but it appears it hasn’t started yet?

I am about to start a two month sprint in German classes. I’m not sure I can learn German and Pali at the same time!


Rad = Wheel in German
Rath = Carriage/Chariot in Pali

Jugend = youth in German
Yobbana = youth in Pali

Beugen = to bend in German
Bhuja = bending in Pali

Maul = mouth in German
Mukha = mouth in Pali

And there are many more! :smile:


I appreciated the bump, otherwise I might not have noticed this thread.

A very generous offer which, if taken up by people, will hopefully happen in it’s own thread. Thank you for offering to share your skills with the community.

I believe Bhante still plans to teach this course.
Scroll to the bottom of the thread, and change your notification settings to ‘watching’ and you will be notified when this thread is updated.



That’s the spirit! :pray:
There are recordings of both Ajahn Brahmali and Bhikkhu Bodhi teaching from Warder. @stu’s link that Onze above provided probably has links to both.

I need all the revision I can get. My PhD in Linguistics allows me to understand quite easily, but my aging memory is losing its capacity to retain. I’d be happy to join any group you cobble together.

but you don’t say what time zone you are in? If you click on the calendar icon towards the right of the menu bar above the text box, it will allow you to specify your time zone. It then makes the appropriate conversions for each one of your readers.

These are video recordings of live workshops he gave in Sri Lanka at the end of last year. Somebody else is editing and uploading them. Nevertheless, Bhante @sujato is always very busy (sadhu sadhu sadhu). Hopefully he’ll remember this amazing offer he made us soonish.

EDIT: The following wasn’t showing when I wrote the above. Renders my remarks superfluous.

In the meantime, I recommend going through Bhikkhu Bodhi’s Pali Primer course if you haven’t already:

It sounds like Bhante Sujato’s class will be pretty tough, so it’s a good idea to get a “head start” on the fundamentals. :wink:


I like the word ‘gentle’. :grin:


Again, please start your own thread?
