Shri S.N.Goenka's Tipitaka website has a multilanguage Pali dictionary along with Tipitaka as an application. Pl download and use. You may also down load the whole CD.
It is great.

Has anyone seen the A Dictionary of Páli, Part II by Margaret Cone, published by the Pali Text Society?

If so, any comments on the book would be welcome.

Here is a very useful tool for Pali learners:

Kurt Schmidt: A Frequency Dictionary of Pali: Core Vocabulary for Learners

http://www.amazon.com/Frequency-Diction ... =8-1-spell

A customer review at the Amazon site says:

This is an interesting comprehensive Pali dictionary. The author's idea to select Pali vocabulary by frequency and only focus on canonical Pali (it seems to be mostly Sutta Pitaka Pali) makes sense. It gives someone who starts learning Pali a clue as to which words he see most often.

I especially liked the combination of word definition with sample sentences (all of which are real extracts from the Suttas and very short full sentences to see the word in its proper context).

At the end of the book there is an index, which is critical to find words.

All in all a very nice edition of core (fundamental) Pali vocabulary.
Mettāya,
Kåre

:thumbsup:

Looks great, I just ordered one.

Since I love lists, I like how it lists the frequency of each word in the Pali Canon.

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

A new search engine in the Concise Pali-English Dictionary by A.P. Buddhadatta Mahathera has just been uploaded.

The interesting thing is it is quite flexible as for example if you are looking for 'āṇāpāṇa' you can simply enter 'anapana' without using any diacritics.

It takes several seconds to load the page initially, but afterwards all search results come instantly:

What are your opinions on "A Pali-English Glossary of Buddhist Technical Terms" by Ven. Nanamoli Thera and Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi?

unfortunately they do not make it freely available to the world, not more than Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations of MN and SN. They prefer replacing the free gift of the Dhamma made by the Buddha and all the numerous ones thanks to whom the Dhamma is still available to us, by a vulgar business.

I don't know what they think they are doing
