Re: The New Pali Course Part II [3-2/8]
- Dear friends,
I have very much exhausted all my available resources while trying to
find the word for 'ride' in Pali. I would appreciate if someone can
provide assistance with translating "riding on the elephant" into
Pali. Thank you.

- Dear Jim,
I am glad you find the resource beneficial. The OpenLibrary only
contains publications in the public domain, on the other hand, Google
Books teamed up with many publishers to offer copyrighted materials
for view online.
Both are worthy and valuable projects for any student and book lovers.

Thank-you very much for the link (openlibrary.org). This is the first
time I'd heard of it and it is certainly a great resource for us Pali
students. They currently list 113 downloadable books having Pali in
the titles. Many of the classics are included such as Senart's work on
Kaccaayana and Childer's Pali dictionary. They also list 2101 other
Pali books but not available for downloading or reading online. I knew
about Clough's and D'Alwis's works but had no idea that so many other
Pali books have come online as well. It's really quite overwhelming
and I'll be spending a good part of my winter downloading these books
to add to my collection.
