Pali script for Anicca, Anatta, Dukkha

Postby withoutcolour » Sun Dec 13, 2009 7:55 pm

Hi all, new to the forum, not new to Buddhism :)

So, onto my question!
In Pali, I am able to find the Pali script for impermanence (anicca) and dukkha, but not no-self (anatta):

अनिच्चा anicca, impermanence
दुक्ख dukkha, suffering
???? anatta, no self

Why is this?
Does anyone know the Pali script spelling for anatta?

Thanks, scholars! :)

Hello all,

Acinteyyo is correct.
"The Pali language is the product of the homogenization of the dialects in which the teachings of the Buddha were orally recorded and transmitted. The term Pali originally referred to a canonical text or passage rather than to a language. No script was ever developed for Pali and scribes used the scripts of their native languages to transcribe the texts. Tradition states that the language of the canon is Magadhi, the language believed to be spoken by Gautami Buddha."
p209 Oxford Dictionary of Buddhism by Damien Keown, Oxford University Press, 2003.2004.

Thank you all, specifically you Acinteyyo.
You're right, I did mean Devanagari, heh.
I'm trying to focus a lot of my energy on learning more about Theravada, so I'm trying to learn as much as I can! :)

Maybe it's a bit off topic but could be very useful for one or the other.
It's a desktop software of the pali-tipitaka, including the sutta pitaka, vinaya pitaka, abhidhamma pitaka, visuddhimagga and a lot more in pali written in 14 scripts (devanagari, burmese, latin, thai, khmer and some more). A pali-english and pali-hindi dictionary is also part of the application. I use it very often and therefore really recommend it to you.

best wishes, acinteyyo

Thanks! It looks nice. I think I'll just have to download this and explore it further for myself.

Hello,

since CSCD is only for MS Windows is an platform independent alternative - the Digital Pali Reader (DPR). It is a browser related software (and it works ONLY with Firefox). Included is a dictionary as well - by simply clicking a word in the text you can look it up.

Metta,
Micha.

1.‘‘रूपं, भिक्खवे, अनत्ता। = rupam, bhikkhave, anatta,=
2.वेदना अनत्ता। = vedana anatta
3.‘‘सञ्ञा अनत्ता। =sanna anatta
4.‘‘ सङ्खारा अनत्ता।= samkhara anatta
5.‘‘विञ्ञावणं अनत्ता। = vinnanavanan anatta

The above-mentioned phrases I have just been learning are from http://www.tipitaka.org/deva/ संयुत्तनिकायो …> ........................>(१. उपयसुत्तं
………..७. अनत्तलक्खणसुत्तं)

Have a nice day.
