Devanagari or Burmese Pali characters needed - help please?

Postby athnamas » Wed Feb 27, 2013 10:57 pm

Hi there, I am searching for a script representation of the Pali words "tatramajjhattata" (equanimity) and samma-sati (right awareness) and am having a terrible time trying to find this on the net!! Is there anyone who can write these for me or refer me to an online resource that has these words in proper pali characters? Or Devanāgarī script, I'm not really sure how it all works.
I am an artist and also a student of Vipassana, I'm doing some work in which I'd like to use the above words but I don't want to use the romanised characters. I presume that S.N. Goenka probably uses Burmese script but I'd be happy with Devanagari as I understand it's probably the most appropriate for what I'm doing.

Any help or direction would be very much appreciated!!

Right, yes tiltbillings is correct (Dmytro please excuse my ignorance like I said I really don't know how it all works), I want beautiful Devanagali (or Burmese) script of those Pali terms to use in my works. The idea is that most people who view the work won't know what the characters even mean but will still see the beauty in the script itself. So if anyone can help me out I would be EVER so grateful :)

In Myanmar script:

"tatramajjhattatā" -

"sammāsati" (appropriate remembrance) -

Tables:

For Brahmi - just convert the Pali word to the Imperial Brahmi font.

Cyrillic is also awesome:

татрамадджхататта

саммасати

Roman to Devanagari

tatramajjhattatā


sammāsati


I suggest to use Firefox browser to view these Devanagari words. For me, other browsers like chrome or opera tend to distort them.

Here, I am not seeing the right character below the double mm in sammā — I just see a small + sign. I guess it requires a particular font to be installed.

Sammā should look like this:

my favorite transliteration tool is this one: http://spokensanskrit.de/training/transliteration.php

it is about a sanskrit site, but devanagari is common to both.
