Hi!

I think it is Japanese that has a hard time pronouncing L's so Theravadins have a hard time pronouncing, spelling R's, apparently. :lol:

I agree, I'm more comfortable writing "Dharma" too. To me "Dhamma" sounds like pronouncing "Dharma" with a Massachusetts accent. JFK would have said "Dhaamaa" or perhaps "Dhaamer" lol.
