Research Institute in Pali and Buddhist literature called Nava Nalanda Mahavihara. It is not for the Indians only, but for students from all over the world in general, and from Southeast Asian countries in particular. The founder of this Institute is the Venerable J. Kashyap. There were some other stalwarts who conceived the idea of reviving the past glories of Ancient Nalanda University, and their efforts have resulted in the establishment of the only Institute catering largely to students interested in Pali and Buddhist Philosophy. The late Dr. Rajendra Prasad, former President of India, laid the foundation stone of the present Institute building on the 20th November, 1951, and this Research Institute was formally inaugurated by Dr. S. Radhadrishnan, the then Vice-President of India, on the 20th March, 1956.
An Introductory Reader and Grammar By Rune E. A. Johansson.
Pali is one of the Middle Indian idioms and the classical language of Theravada Buddhism. It is therefore important both to linguists and students of Buddhism. This introductory book centres on a collection of original texts, each selected as an especially important and beautiful formulation of a Buddhist idea. By means of a vocabulary, translation and commentary, each text is explained so concretely that it can be read with little preparation. Detailed explanations are provided for the many technical terms, which have frustrated so many western explorers of Buddhism. For reference, a grammar is provided. Sanskrit parallels to many of the words are given, as well as a special chapter comparing the two languages.
