    What does it mean?

    Any recommendations for a Buddhist dictionary? One that includes pronunciation guides for terms. . . How it sounds in my head isn't much of a guide!

    These days, as a translator, I truly find the endless resources of Google to be the best dictionary. I use paper dictionaries for doorstops. So long as one determines that the writer or commentator has good credentials and expertise (that is the trick), then the internet materials can be trusted.

    There are also some major Buddhist dictionary projects online now, such as this:



    SweepingZen is trying to create an audio mp3 glossary for pronunciation of basic (mostly Japanese) Zen terms.

        Yes, thank you, Jundo! Is this information pinned somewhere? If not, maybe it should be?

          I'm going to be a translator in no time!
          If I'm already enlightened why the hell is this so hard?

            A good suggestion. Thank you. I will make it part of our Suggested Book List until we can find a better place.

            By the way, I am hoping the Suggested Book List will soon expand to include some helpful online materials.
