With more than 5,000 entries totaling over a million words, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of Buddhism ever produced in English. It is also the first to cover terms from all of the canonical Buddhist languages and traditions: Sanskrit, Pali, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
The Tibetan Living Dictionary is intended to have a comprehensive scope for the Tibetan literary and spoken languages. It has recorded pronunciations of most terms in the three major dialects, and increasingly has associated photos, audio-video recordings, and detailed passages exemplifying terms’ usage.
The aim of the database is to record information about ascriptions of Chinese Buddhist texts, especially in the very many cases in which scholars have questioned received ascriptions (as embodied, for example, in Taishō bylines).
The Online Spiritual Atlas of the Global East was created by the Center on Religion and the Global East (CRGE) at Purdue University. OSAGE allows users to visualize the spatial distribution of individual religious sites in the Global East, as well as see how geographic regions compare with each other in terms of the number of religious sites.
