Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

If they take what's yours, tell yourself that you're making it a gift.
Otherwise there will be no end to the animosity. - Ajahn Fuang Jotiko

Found some downloadable Pali dictionaries for free at google (for Mac)...stand to reason there's something for Android as well...

Whatever device you get, I can give you the PTS dictionary in Word, Epup, or Mobi formats.
Send me your email if you want it.
My kindle displays the Mobi version well.

By the way, I have seen the new mini sized ebook readers, and they are too small in my opinion. Go for the biggest screen you can afford.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

You mean by that, that You can use it on kindle as a dictionary?

@offtopic
I couldn't find any information about it. How much post does it takes for a member to be able to send private messages to others?

Since you requested an Android based dictionary, you could take a look at this Pali-English Dictionary on Google Play.

I believe it is 10 posts.
May the blessings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha always be firmly established in your hearts.
