About this title


Foreword by George Cardona. ‎ "Dr. Varma [in this Dictionary] deals with major issues which confront any translator of philosophical ‎works, among them (pp. ix-x) the relative weight one should accord to the understanding of a text in its ‎own tradition of interpretation versus dependence on philological criteria, and argues (p. x), reasonably, ‎that, 'Any work that deals primarily with philosophy and psychology requires particular clarity of ‎thoughts and expression, where readability, intelligibility, comprehensibility, contextuality, accuracy, ‎consistency, cogency and simplicity are the chief priorities rather than mere literal translations or ‎philological analyses.' In the dictionary proper, beginning with a long entry on 'Abhidhamma' (pp. 1-‎‎10) and ending with a short entry on 'yoga' p. 173), Dr. Varma pays careful attention to literal and ‎contextual interpretation, with ample references to primary and secondary literature and to the history of ‎important concepts. In sum, Dr. Varma's work is a brief modern compendium that, I think, should be ‎quite useful to serious students of Buddhism". ‎ - George Cardona.
