New Book> Meditations of the Pali Tradition by L.S. Cousins

I am pleased to share a new release that I hope will be of keen interest to those on this list.

by L.S. Cousins, edited by Sarah Shaw

The Inya Institute is pleased to announce its inaugural language course series on three prominent languages spoken in Myanmar:

(1) Kachin – Jinghpaw; (2) Karen – S’gaw; and (3) Shan – Tai long.


The two-week language course will equip participants with the essential skills needed to communicate confidently and effectively in one of the three languages in a broad range of situations. Our three teams of language teachers were trained by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s SEASSI current Burmese language instructor. No prior knowledge of these languages is required.
