The Pali Collective is a Yahoo! group with some very knowledgeable and helpful members who can help you with your Pali studies.
Since its founding in 1881, this nonprofit organization has been the world's pre-eminent publisher of texts from the Pali canon. The PTS offers offer a hardbound edition of the complete Tipitaka in romanized Pali, and most of the Tipitaka in English translation. Some of their translations of key texts are now very badly out of date, and have been superseded by more fluent translations from other publishers (for example, their translation of the Digha Nikaya dates back to 1899; Maurice Walshe's Long Discourses of The Buddha, published by Wisdom Publications in 1987, is a much more useful text). Nevertheless, many of their translations are still valuable. Their romanized Pali editions are indispensable tools for the serious Pali student. PTS books are distributed in North America by Pariyatti.
Pariyatti (formerly Pariyatti Book Service) is a nonprofit bookseller with a large online catalog of books on Buddhism and meditation from various publishers. Pariyatti is the official North American distributor for the Buddhist Publication Society and the Pali Text Society.
