Dictionary Of Chinese Buddhist Terms

Postby WuMing » Sat Jun 01, 2013 8:48 pm

I came across an online edition of A Dictionary Of Chinese Buddhist Terms by by William Edward Soothill and Lewis Hodous

It might be dated but still useful in some aspects as Charles Muller pointed out in his Preface To The Digital Edition.
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Our life is very simple, very direct, very beautiful, very vast and very terrifying, but it is not at all convenient.
- Anzan Hoshin Roshi
