Pali Reading Club

Pali Reading Club (PRC) is a reading group led by Dr. Alex Wynne designed mainly for people who have previously taken the Pali Summer School, or Online School, with Prof. Richard Gombrich, as well as those who have completed the Pali Online Courses (Level 1 and beyond) from the OCBS, or possess similar levels of knowledge of Pali.

This term the Pali Reading Club will study the opening sections of the Vinaya-piṭaka, which begin with the Verañja-kaṇḍa. This introduction to the Pali Vinaya describes how an early Buddhist tradition imagined the origins of the formulation of Vinaya rules. Time permitting, the sessions will continue into the opening Pārājika section of the Vinaya itself, the most serious class of monastic rules

The Pali Reading Club will  have five weeks this term:

March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30

Time: 4pm UK local time

Cost: £41

These sessions will take place on Zoom.
