Dear friends, 
 
May your entry into the new year have been peaceful. We here at Pariyatti want to start this first newsletter of 2019 off with a heartfelt ’thank you'! We have wrapped up the 2018 end-of-year fundraising campaign with much gratitude. 
 
The total amount we received was $69,467; only just over $5,500 short of our goal of $75,000! We would like to acknowledge all our supporters for their generosity and emphasize we will make sure to use this dāna wisely. We never stop looking to improve our efficiency while we continue to offer Dhamma resources to people and organizations all around the world. 
 
Pariyatti staff like to extend their best wishes, and look forward to serving you in the coming year.
 
May 2019 be full of Dhamma!
May more and more people find inspiration to walk on the path!
 
 

Back in Stock

The well-anticipated periodical shipment from Vipassana Research Institute (VRI) has arrived! We stocked up on 28 titles, some of which had been out of stock for a little while.
 
The popular Importance of Vedanā and Sampajañña is back on the shelves. It is a collection of papers from the Seminar on Vedanā (body sensations) and Sampajañña (continuous awareness), held in 1990 at Dhamma Giri in India, acknowledging Vipassana meditation as the quintessence of the Buddha's teaching.
 
The introduction to Pāli grammar for beginners Pāli Primer is also back in stock. This study book is based on the principle of teaching grammar through composition, using a gradually expanding vocabulary. 
Essence of Tipitaka
This concise guide to the body of discourses and teachings of the Buddha (the Tipiṭaka or Pāli Canon) gives a descriptive overview of all three sections, or "baskets” , including the Vinaya Piṭaka (code of disciplinary rules for monks and nuns), Abhidhamma Piṭaka (collection of philosophical treatises), and the Sutta Piṭaka (Buddha's discourses).
 
The Great Buddha's Noble Teachings - The Origin and Spread of Vipassana
These illustration books feature more than 100 stories narrated by S.N. Goenka and colorful illustrations of important events of the Buddha's life and teaching, from the ongoing exhibition at the Global Vipassana Pagoda in India, which was designed to dispel misconceptions about the Buddha and his teachings.

Downloadable PTS PDF's 

With a higher newsletter frequency during the recent campaign then our usual twice-a-month send outs, and many of our subscribers sitting or serving courses during the holiday season—away from phone and email—, it is more than likely that some of our December newsletters were left unread. Two issues featured free downloadable PDF eBooks from the Pāli Text Society (PTS) and we just don’t want you to miss out on those. Here are the links again. We hope you will get both enjoyment and great benefit out of reading these works.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Residential Pāli Workshops

Pāli is the language in which the Buddha’s teachings were written down in the Tipiṭaka (Pāli Canon). As Pariyatti's aim is to provide greater access to the words of the Buddha and knowledge of Pāli will enable a deeper understanding of those words, we support Pāli students in different ways. One way is through facilitating residential workshops on different locations.

Pilgrimages

Four Places of Pilgrimage
16. "There are four places, Ananda, that a pious person should visit and look upon with feelings of reverence.[42] What are the four?
17. "'Here the Tathagata was born!'[43] This, Ananda, is a place that a pious person should visit and look upon with feelings of reverence.
18. "'Here the Tathagata became fully enlightened in unsurpassed, supreme Enlightenment!'[44] This, Ananda, is a place that a pious person should visit and look upon with feelings of reverence.
19. "'Here the Tathagata set rolling the unexcelled Wheel of the Dhamma!'[45] This, Ananda, is a place that a pious person should visit and look upon with feelings of reverence.
20. "'Here the Tathagata passed away into the state of Nibbana in which no element of clinging remains!' This, Ananda, is a place that a pious person should visit and look upon with feelings of reverence.
21. "These, Ananda, are the four places that a pious person should visit and look upon with feelings of reverence. And truly there will come to these places, Ananda, pious bhikkhus and bhikkhunis, laymen and laywomen, reflecting: 'Here the Tathagata was born! Here the Tathagata became fully enlightened in unsurpassed, supreme Enlightenment! Here the Tathagata set rolling the unexcelled Wheel of the Dhamma! Here the Tathagata passed away into the state of Nibbana in which no element of clinging remains!'
