- Dear Nina,
thanks for writing. I would like to say that I am a beginner on Pali
too, and my study is rather inconsistent, which explains why there
isn't much progress although I am into Pali for about four years.
I would really appreciate if more people would come forward and
participate by posting translation of the sutta in little chunks
(single sentence or paragraph), and comment/correct/improve on what
has been translated.
I will continue and carry on from where we left off. In the
meanwhile, I am putting up an online version of pali grammatical
terms abstracted from a book by Ven. Nanamoli. It should be ready by
Christmas day. At the same time, I am in the process of transferring
Tipitaka.net to a new web host. It has grown to just a few hundred
kbytes short of the 30 Mbytes space. I have found another host with
lower price giving more space and better software support. In the new
year, I hope to put up more reading articles, and expand the projects
that we are currently undertaking, renew the weblink page, and build
the site into online community (this will take some time, and require
more software resouces).
So much for now. And happy holidays.

I very much appreciated the texts of the Raahulovaadasutta. I have
received only the beginning (where Dmitri helped out, najja=nu
ajja)), and I am looking forward to the next issues. I want to read
Pali as much as possible.
I did not follow the thread from the beginning. What should we
students do with the text? Read only or write a translation?
