vocabulary

Post by delf7 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:13 pm

sorry all, but as i am quite new in my studies, i was wondering if anyone knows of a place i can find a vocabulary of basic theravada terminology. i am sure that as i progress in my reading, i will learn the words and terms used here in these forums, but - as a beginner - i get lost sometimes when i'm reading alot of the great information available to me here.
i HAVE done some looking on my own, but have not found what i'm looking for and thought "asking" might be the quickest way. thank you for your patience.

This is a good resource:

>> Do you see a man wise [enlightened/ariya] in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.<< -- Proverbs 26:12

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” HPatDH p.723
