          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

            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"!!

            Cheers
