      Colombo Apothecaries (odd name for a publisher!) are no longer publishing
      it, but the Buddhist Cultural Centre in Dehiwala has brought out an issue
      of Parts I & II in a single volume, ISBN 955-9219-08-1. The BCC's website
      is at http://www.buddhistcc.com

      Like the BPS in Kandy, the BCC is a not-for-profit organization and most of
      their publications cost peanuts. They have done a lot of valuable work in
      re-issuing specialist books of high quality that commercial publishers
      won't touch because of a low anticipated readership.

      Best wishes,

      Robert

          Welcome fellow-aussie Christine,
          Please tell me more about this Pali course at the U.
          of Qld. Is it part of a larger program in Buddhist
          Studies? Do they offer intermediate or advanced
          courses in Pali too? Is the Buddhadatta book the main
          text used?

          Metta,
          John (an aussie living in the U.S.)

            Dear Robert, Yong Peng, John and All,

            Robert: thank you for the information about the Buddhist Cultural
            Centre in Dehiwala. Much appreciated. I've contacted them and await
            a reply.

            Yong Peng: Please find the information you request at:
            http://www.uq.edu.au/hprc/outlines/reln1503.html
            This subject can also be taken as part of the Community Access
            Program. i.e. a single or miscellaneous full fee subject. There is
            an extensive list of texts in the Bibliography at the foot of page,
            covering Introductions, Grammars, Readings, Pali Literature and
            Dictionaries.
            Should one survive, one can take RELN 2506 Intermediate Pali in
            Semester 2, also with Dr. Pecenko, and then rise to the heights of a
            full year of RELN 3502 Pali Level IV (by arrangement with Head of
            Dept.).

            John: Thank you for your welcome. I think some of your questions
            may be answered above, and on the link to the subject. The
            University of Queensland offers (through its Faculty of Arts - School
            of History, Philosophy, Religion and Classics - Studies in Religion)
            undergrad. and post grad. courses. There is no specific school of
            Buddhist Studies, but you may like to browse the subject offerings on
            the Fast Navigator:

              Dear Christine,

              thanks for the info. I am currently doing an engineering degree at
              Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Unforunately, the Pali
              class falls on Monday and clashes with my schedule at QUT.

              I hope UQ will run the class again the next semester, or offer it as
              a Flexible Delivery Course:
              http://www.uq.edu.au/hprc/altstud.html

              I wish you the very best in your new adventure.

              metta,
              Yong Peng.
