Pariyatti Presents...

This program consists of hosting talks and workshops by eminent speakers at various locations including the Pariyatti facility in Onalaksa, Washington, USA. The talks will explore a wide range of topics from the Tipitaka, the Pali language, and other topics related to the practice and theory as taught by the Buddha. These talks and workshops provide an opportunity for the presenter to share their area(s) of expertise with the audience.  Although presenters may share their thoughts on different topics, the goal is the same – that all of these offerings serve as inspiration to help support those walking on the path of Dhamma.

Dr. Panth, a Buddhist scholar, was the inaugural speaker for this program, and he gave a series of talks and a couple of workshops. Watch his talk The Revival of Pilgrimage in India below.
