This is a peer-group discussion on a discourse from the Pāli Canon. The group will read the sutta together, rotating with each person present reading a small section, followed by reflection and discussion.  It is recommended that participants try to read one or more translations of the sutta beforehand.  The sutta name and a link to finding a translation (or translations) online will be sent out prior to the sutta study. 
John Kelly has been a practicing Buddhist since the early 1990s and has studied the Pāli language since the early 2000s. He has been principal assistant to Bhikkhu Bodhi in four of his most recent sutta translation publications. In 2005 John was a founding member and designer on the team that created, a continuously growing trove of information on early Buddhist texts, translations, and parallels. John has an MA in Buddhist Studies, and his dissertation for this MA, “The Buddha’s Teachings to Lay People”, was published in Buddhist Studies Review.
