      A very warm welcome to all the new members that seem
      to have joined this list over the last week or so -
      Lenny, Mangesh, Yufen, Doug, and possibly others.

      I'm feeling very pleased with myself since I've just
      completed the de Silva "Pali Primer" in it's entirety.
      I can strongly recommend this book to those of you
      who are just starting. It has its drawbacks, but it
      is very accessible to someone with little or no
      knowledge of the language. Yong Peng (the fearless
      moderator of this list) has kindly been presenting
      chapter summaries every couple of weeks or so. For
      those of you just starting to work through it, I
      recommend you review prior messages on this list for
      the chapters that you are working on.

      Now I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the "A
      New Course in Reading Pali" by Gair and Karunatillake.
      One of the good things about this book is all the
      material in it is direct from the suttas. If there
      are others on this list who are starting on this book,
      please let me know.

      With mettaa to all,
      John

        Hi John,

        Congratulations with graduating Lily de Silva's Pali College!

        I would be first to join you in Gair and Karunatillake Pali
        University. Translating it in Russian, I work through it attentively,
        and will be able to provide the links to all the suttas included in
        this textbook, and to English translation when it is available.

        With metta,
        Dimitry

            Hi Dimitry, Thanks very much for your support. That s wonderful that you ve translated Gair into Russian! It appears you ll be a wonderful resource as I work

              Hi Dimitry,
              Thanks very much for your support.
              That's wonderful that you've translated Gair into
              Russian! It appears you'll be a wonderful resource as
              I work through the book.
              I like your web-site too, but I wish I could read
              Russian! Thanks for the translation site link. That
              helps a lot, but it does come up with some pretty
              bizarre translations. Did you know that PALI in the
              cyrillic alphabet gets translated to HAVING FALLEN?

              Much metta to you,
              John

                Hi John
                Yes but not as bad as a published translation many years ago of a work into
                Russian that translated the English expression "out of sight, out of mind"
                into Russian as "invisible idiot"!!
