Sati Center class: Entering the World of the Pali Canon
The history, structure, study, and practices of the Early Buddhist texts made accessible to modern times.

With Kim Allen, Diana Clark, David Lorey, and Ying Chen
Two sessions: July 24 and 31 (Sat), 8:30-10:30am PDT online
Sometimes in Dharma talks we hear teachers refer to a sutta passage, “what the Buddha said,” or to “the Pali Canon.” What are they referring to? How can we find these passages ourselves and how do we know the Buddha even said these things? In this course we’ll explore the three “baskets" (tipitaka) of the Pali Canon, with particular attention to the specific books containing the suttas (discourses). The class includes reading and discussing several texts, along with suggestions for ways to practice with texts as part of one’s spiritual path. Each session also includes meditation and small-group interaction.

This class is suitable for people new to the Pali Canon as well as those more familiar with it.
