Pali Day by Day [D Series] Break
- Dear Venerables and friends,
To cope with my exams, which started today till 19 Nov, I would be
taking a break from the Pali practice. Following that, I would be
taking a short breather while preparing for further exercises. Hence,
the D Series may not resume until next year.
I take this opportunity to thank bhante's and everyone who has
provided feedback and assistance in going through and correcting the
solutions. Full solutions up to Chapter 9 are now available online:
Thank you very much. And I wish everyone well and happy.
- Hello Jayarava and friends,
In Norman's translation of the Dhammapada, in his note for v.259, he directs the reader's attention to verses 8, 128, 168, 172 and 177, where there is the same consonant doubling of p before na as in v.259 (pamajjati to nappamajjati) after what he calls the 'proclitic' use of na. So the formation seems to be a regular phonological feature in Pali.
