I think suddhi is another term for purity or purification. Or maybe the 'vi' prefix changes purity to purification?

Which dictionary are you using?

I am using the pali lookup program developed by Aukana trust in the UK, it says it is based on Buddhadatta's concise english pai/ali english dicionary
easy program to use and it works which is always a plus, some of the progams I have tried to download just don't work?

Ayya (venerable lady; as in Ayya Mutta).

Ayya Mutta came of a rich Brahman family of Savatthi. When she was twenty years old, she went to Maha Pajapati Gotami and got ordination from her. She was practising kammatthana and she was instructed by the Buddha to get herself free from all bonds. Afterwards she became an Arahant.

Dhamma

Noun

* 1. The Buddha’s teachings.
* 2. Truth
* 3. Wisdom
* 4. A natural condition
* 5. Mental quality.

I know, not very creative, but Dhamma was bound to appear at least one time. :tongue:

Again, this is highly non-creative:

Buddha : The Enlightened One, Awakened One.

In Devanagari:

बुद्ध

= ba, बु= Bu, = da (Dental /d̪/) , = dha (/d̪ʱ/) da + dha = द्ध

Tipitaka (Pali ti, "three," + pitaka, "baskets"), or Pali canon, is the collection of primary Pali language texts which form the doctrinal foundation of Theravada Buddhism. The Tipitaka and the paracanonical Pali texts (commentaries, chronicles, etc.) together constitute the complete body of classical Theravada texts.

ti-lakkhana [ti-lakkha.na]: Three characteristics inherent in all conditioned phenomena — being inconstant (anicca), stressful (dukkha), and not-self (anatta).
"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)

Titthāyatana: the 3 'articles of heretical belief', which in A. III, 61 are declared as leading to inactivity, are: 1 the belief that all happiness and woe are produced through former kamma prenatal actions; see: kamma; 2 that everything is uncaused; 3 that everything is created by God.
