Translations of this page?:


Pāḷi-Dictionary (pāḷi > english, english>pāḷi) is one of the four great sections on

Pāḷī-words, collected from different dictionaries, which have been given to the Sublime Saṅgha and their following for proper uses.

Currently implemented dictionaries:

The introducing Text is compiled by contributors and may include parts of the Khmer-Dictionary "Choun Nath", which has been translated, will be translated, into other languages. The sections following it are from the listed sources.

All pages are open for contributing what ever one may feel inspired to give.


The single pages are named by the original spelling without space or other signs and rendered automatical into the sofftware reqired format. The headline, anchors and displayed text for links (if possible) should have the same spelling and comined words divided by -. For example brahma-vihāra


If the word is not a combined for example vihāra:


The Header, whether in a reference-dictionary of in the template should use the written form (e.g. with -). Since the parts of the reference-dictionaries are searched by the word-headline, the anchors (text after # should be replaced with the written form as well. For example:


The page template would render the anchor text “#brahmavihara” and if not changed to “#brahma-vihāra” the certain header would not be found in the reference-dictionary.

Displayed text from the reference dictionary here:

brahma-vihāra: The four “sublime” or “divine” abodes that are attained through the development of boundless mettā (goodwill), karuṇā (compassion), muditā (appreciative joy), and upekkhā (equanimity).


If wishing to edit the source of the embedded text, you may follow to the section in the referenc-dictionary by clicking the ''“-symbol (only logged in use are given to edit the reference-sources).

If wishing to make a larger contribution or dedicate an additional dictionary, the automatic including in new pages requires an edit of the page-template and possible includig into existing pages by using the regex-replacement tool. Of course it can done one by one as well.

General conception

It is intended not to list only to maintain “root words” but also their combinations individualy. A country specifically use added, should give also a broader spectrum of use and understanding.


It's given and welcome to create contributions, dedicated for the Sublim Saṅgha and their following, as well for those interested see Dhamma-Dana, to write own articles or sections, or to help in implementation of given dictionaries.
