Re: [Pali] Re: Question on Lesson 7
- Thanks Ria and James,
Is there someone who can make the correction on the web site?
Getting accurate answers is crucial for those of us learning at a
distance. This wrong answer was very confusing to me and caused
me to use ablative in similar sentences since if it was ablative in
14 it would logically be ablative in a similar sentence like the one
I pointed to in my e-mail.

Kalamas, when you yourselves know: 'These things are good; these things are
not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed,
these things lead to benefit and happiness,' enter on and abide in them. AN

- Dear Dipa and Ria,
thanks for pointing out the mistake, I have updated the webpage. The solutions provided on tipitaka.net serves as an important resource for Pali students, especially those who study Pali on their own. It takes great efforts from all of us to ensure that the answers given are accurate. This mailing list is the exact place to discuss any point related to the solutions. However, I would appreciate if you can be more specific whether you refer to an earlier post, a page on tipitaka.net, or the book you are using. By doing so, it would make things easier for me. Thank you.

I have updated both pages, and thanks again for using the solutions in your study, and raising questions over the answers.
