Pariyatti Learning Center
The Pāli course Buddhasahassanāmāvali uses the verses that our late teacher S.N. Goenka composed and chanted to express his gratitude towards the Buddha as a basis for learning Pāli. Both the Introduction by Klaus Nothnagel, Pāli teacher and creator of the course, and the Foreword by our late Teacher S.N. Goenka are interesting reads. The former gives a wonderful illustration of Goenkaji composing the verses and how the seed for this course was sown; in the latter Goenkaji details how the verses came to be and which volition we ought to keep in mind should we recite them. Verses 79-84 have been recently added online.

Pariyatti is a charitable, non-profit, educational support system for the Dhamma community. Pariyatti exists because of funds donated by supporters.

FACT: Did you know that since our Pāli workshop program started in 2012, we have facilitated 26 residential workshops in the USA, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Costa Rica, Chile, Israel, Poland and Spain? Goenkaji emphasized that Pāli workshops are very beneficial; they help meditators develop their inspiration to practice and improve their understanding of the theoretical aspect of Dhamma. Expenses of the workshop program are met by donations to the Pāli Workshop Fund from past students. Another way to give dāna is to serve during a workshop; serving is a wonderful opportunity to develop one's pāramīs, strengthen one's practice, and meet many Dhamma friends. Once the work is done servers can join classes and receive the benefit of learning the direct words of the Buddha.
