Glossary of dharma terms

The glossary of dharma terms on this website has been updated. It sets out to explain terms commonly used in dharma (‘Buddhist’) circles in plain English, in particular those which newcomers may find difficult to grasp.

Underlined words have their own entries elsewhere in the glossary. Many terms originated in the earliest classical languages in which Buddhist texts were written: Pali and Sanskrit, two ancient, related Indic languages.

You can find it here. A trans-Tasman collaborative effort, your thoughts are most welcome.
