I am sorry but there isn't an MP3 file for the lesson. You may like
to get some assistance from the local monasteries and viharas in
Singapore to learn the pronunciation.

- 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.
