Buddha statue in the reclining pose
This statue of the Buddha in the reclining position, or sleeping lion's pose (the pose in which the Buddha lay when he reached Mahāparinibbāna), is only one of many Pariyatti pilgrims will come across when traveling Along the Path through India and Nepal.

Fundraiser for the Spanish translation of

Along the Path
The Meditator’s Companion to Pilgrimage in the Buddha’s India and Nepal
Along the Path was first released in December 2009 after seven years of researching and writing. The guidebook helps pilgrims not only reach and find accommodation at the sacred sites connected to the Buddha’s life and teachings, but also illuminates the historical and spiritual significance of those sites by offering a rich anthology of deeply inspiring stories. Along the Path also highlights established Vipassana meditation centers best suited to accommodate visitors, suggests excursions and activities in the vicinity of ancient and modern Dhamma sites, and includes an in-depth travel section to help visitors prepare for a safe launch from home and cultivate cultural sensibilities.

Along the Path (Por el sendero)

Por el sendero fue publicado por primera vez en diciembre de 2009, después de siete años de investigación y redacción. Esta guía ayuda a los peregrinos no sólo a localizar y encontrar locaciones de hospedaje en los sitios sagrados conectados a la vida y las enseñanzas del Buda, sino también ilumina el significado espiritual e histórico de tales sitios, ofreciendo una antología rica en historias profundamente inspiradoras. Por el sendero también resalta los centros de meditación Vipassana establecidos más adecuados para recibir visitantes; sugiere excursiones y actividades en los alrededores de los antiguos y modernos sitios del Dhamma, e incluye una sección de viajes completa para ayudar al visitante a prepararse para un despegue seguro desde su hogar y cultivar su sensibilidad cultural.

New Pariyatti Edition

Buddhist Dictionary Cover
Buddhist Dictionary
Pāli-English and English-Pāli.
Translations of important Pāli words and meditation terms arranged in (Roman-script English) alphabetical order; definitions include a discussion of certain complex concepts; source references.
A great dictionary to look up important Pāli words or terms, or find them when only knowing the English equivalent.
This dictionary provides the reader not with a mere superficial enumeration of important Pāli terms and their English equivalents, but offers precise and authentic definitions and explanations of canonical and post-canonical terms and doctrines, based on Sutta, Abhidhamma and Commentaries, illustrated by numerous quotations taken from these sources.
The sixth revised edition is a cooperative effort of the BPS and Pariyatti; the abbreviation scheme and reference systems have been modernized, source notes—made in an age when digital search tools were not available—have been revised in order to accurately reflect the first occurrences.
Pariyatti Editions (BPE) are quality prints, with ergonomic page size and easy-to-read font, and a sturdy spine.

Pāli Workshops

Studying Pāli can be very beneficial to meditators as improved knowledge of the direct words of the Buddha can help one develop a greater understanding of the theoretical aspect of Dhamma, and inspiration to keep practicing. 
This is something that Goenkaji emphasized during his life and that also corresponds with the feedback we have received from participants of the various residential Pāli workshops Pariyatti has helped facilitate over the years. Pariyatti’s Pāli workshops are open for old students of S.N. Goenka, who practice Vipassana meditation regularly.
