Understanding Buddhism in the original Pali and Sanskrit
Sanskrit/Pali Textbook class at the Golden Buddha Centre
Fridays 2.00-3.30pm (odd numbered weeks) with James Whelan
In these Sanskrit/Pali classes one week is of the more formal kind of study. and the following week is more informal and less structured.
We call these respectively the “text book” approach and the “word clinic” approach.
Everyone is welcome to attend either or both classes.
Please note: The word-clinic is held on the even numbered weeks (see standard week-numbering system in calendars and diaries), and the textbook classes are held on the odd numbered weeks.
Holiday dates: Final session: 20th December; restart 10th January.
