Re: Pali Advanced Reading Course

Dear H-Buddhism members,

I would like to make a correction to Steven's announcement regarding the Pali Advanced Reading course. The course will be held at the Oxford Centre for Buddhist Studies, which is an independent institution related to Oxford University.

Apologies for my error when editing the original post.
