sorry all, but as i am quite new in my studies, i was wondering if anyone knows of a place i can find a vocabulary of basic theravada terminology. i am sure that as i progress in my reading, i will learn the words and terms used here in these forums, but - as a beginner - i get lost sometimes when i'm reading alot of the great information available to me here.
i HAVE done some looking on my own, but have not found what i'm looking for and thought "asking" might be the quickest way. thank you for your patience.
