Open Glossaries for Buddhist Studies
Posted by marcus.bingenheimer on 2011/07/07
Recently we added 3 new Buddhist studies glossaries to our glossary project.
1. Seishi Karashima: “A Glossary of Kumārajīva’s translation of the Lotus Sutra.” Tokyo: Soka University, 2001.(2,409 entries)
2. Jeffrey Hopkins: “Jeffrey Hopkins’ Tibetan-Sanskrit-English Dictionary” (18,441 entries).
3. Dan Martin: “Tibskrit Philology” (Bibliographic information on Buddhist authors c. 10,000 entries).
We thank the authors for their permission to distribute the data in this way. All glossaries are encoded in TEI/XML. From this master file we produce the HTML, PDF and StarDict versions. The latter works with dictionary platforms such as StarDict,GoldenDict, or mobile applications such as ColorDict.
The transformations of Karashima sensei’s most recent glossary on the Dao Xing Banruo [\Bore] Jing (T.224) (Tokyo 2010) are in work and should be ready for distribution in about 2 months.
