Digital Pali Reader: highly recommended
- Greetings in the Dharma,
I find the DIGITAL PALI READER an amazingly useful tool for those who
frequently use the Pali Canon, with its multiple windows
displaying the DPPN (Dictionary of Pali Proper Names) and the PED
(Pali English Dictionary) and CPED (Critical Pali Dictionary?).
It also uses Velthuis Pali, besides the very versatile search
features. Although not all the Pali words are clickable for meaning, but
a huge amount of effort has been put in for those words that give
their meanings and references at a click.
The way the page contents fluidly move is itself dhyanic to see.
I am further delighted to know that the THAI TIPITAKA is also
accessible with DPR. However, I am unable to refer to it, as I am
not sure how to download the Thai Pitaka from SourceForge (which
author Yuttadhammo works with). Could anyone help?
I know I am a bit behind time here as many others are probably using
DPR already, but I recommend it to others who wish to
learn Pali from the Canon itself.
DPR can be downloaded from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/digitalpali/. It works best with
Mozilla Firefox (download and install
it too for for effect).
Very Happy Vesak,
