Whilst “Pali” may officially be a “dead language” it is still studied by Buddhist novices in Laos as enthusiastically as English or Thai. Pali is the language of Theravada Buddhism and prayers are recited in Pali in order to maintain the integrity of the original meaning of the sacred texts. #laos #lonelyplanet #buddhism (at Wat Si Saket)
