Ensuring Pali Scholarship for the future
The Pali Summer School is now in its 10th year. Originally started by Richard Gombrich as a way to combat decline in Pali scholarship in the West, this concentrated course is habitually fully booked from year to year.
Richard bases the twelve-day course on intensive use of the Pali dictionary, so that after leaving, participants find they are able to tackle Pali prose texts by themselves. Due to the nature of the teaching the course is limited to 14 participants.
Although the format of the course does not currently suit an online version we will, at some point, be looking into whether an online equivalent may be developed to ensure the continuance of this important resource.
