Buddho is Sanskrit/Pali; it is a masculine noun in the nominative case.PsychedelicSunSet wrote:I know that it means "wake up" but what language does it originate from? And what does it look like in its original script? Does it appear in Pali scripture?
There is no "original script." The words of the Buddha were handed down Orally for hundreds of years until they were first written down in Sri Lanka, presumably using an ancient form of the Sinhala script. There are some ancient inscriptions in Brahmi script. In Burma they write Pāḷi in Myanmar script, in the West we use Roman script. In India, they use Devanagari script.PsychedelicSunSet wrote:And what does it look like in its original script?
