The aim of these workshops is to provide greater access to the words of the Buddha, which will enable a deeper
understanding of the Buddha's teaching, the Dhamma. Goenkaji has emphasized that Pāli workshops such as these
are very beneficial: they help meditators develop inspiration and understanding of the theoretical aspect of
Dhamma. However, these workshops cannot take place at a Vipassana center, as centers are dedicated to the
practice of Vipassana only. Therefore, a suitable off-center location is arranged for each course.
