Pali Day by Day

Pali Day by Day is a data depository center (DDC) for a discussion thread of the same name in the Pali Discussion Group. The objective of the discussion thread is for the group to work through Pali textbooks together, and help each other in understanding the subject and solving the problems in the books. This thread runs in series (A, B, C, Dů). The purpose of this DDC is to collect and compile the answers for the exercises in the books, as well as any other useful information related to these exercises. You will be able to access all the available information from this page, or from the right column.

This DDC uses Velthius Encoding system for presenting Pali words. You may read about the system here >> [ read ].
