Introduction to Pali

During the Summer of 2020, Stephen Sas, a longtime Pali student of Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi conducted a series of 19 classes to lead students from the basic grammar to read simple Sutta in Pali.

Pali Level 1

A New Course in Reading Pali

This series of Pali Class was taught between January 2014 to August 2015. This is considered the level 2 study of Pali language. After working through Pali Primer, students can start to study “A New Course in Reading Pali” by James Gair & W.S. Karunatillake.

Reading the Buddha’s Discourses in Pali

At this level, we take short suttas from the Saṃyutta Nikāya and explain them word for word. The second part of each class takes verses from the Dhammapada and explains them line by line.

Pali Level 3

The aims, methods and rationales of the present Māgadhabhāsā (Pāḷi) grammar are as follows: (a) Lubricating access to the information contained in numerous modern Pāḷi grammars written in English by collating the dispersed material contained within them. People who wish to learn about grammatical rules and principles – either on a broader spectrum or at all – are compelled to track them down in the thicket of the widely scattered grammar inventories as separately given by the various available grammars. These works, mostly fine and outstanding works of scholarship in their own right, each individually often contain valuable data and perspectives not found in the other ones, and these are attempted to be distilled and presented with this Pāḷi grammar. (b) Facilitating identification of and providing explicit reference to most of the grammatical rules contained in the Kaccāyanabyākaraṇaṃ (Kaccāyana), the oldest extant Pāḷi grammar, as well as to selected ones from other traditional grammars.
