The most important Buddhist doctrinal terms such as Cattari Ariya-saccani (Four Noble Truths), viz., Dukkha (Suffering), Dukkhasamudaya (Cause of Suffering), Dukkanirodha (Cessation of Suffering), Dukkhanirodha-gamini-patipada (Way to Cessation of Suffering) otherwise called Ariya Atthangika Magga (Noble Eight-fold Path) or Majjhima Patipada (Middle Path), Paticcasamuppada (Law of Dependent Origination), Paccaya (Casual Relation), Nibbana (Nirvana), Anatta (Soullessness), Anicca (Impermanence), Jhana or Dhyana (Meditation), Samvrti-satya (conventional truth), Paramartha-satya (Absolute truth), Alayavijnana (Store of Consciousness), etc. and doctrines of different Buddhist sects such as Theravada, Mahasanghika, Sarvastivada, Yogacara, or Vijnanavada, Madhhyamika or S unyavada, Vaibhasika, Sautrantika, Mantrayana, Vajrayana and so on have been treated critically and analytically in accordance with the interpretation of the term in question by the Buddha himself or by later famous commentators like Buddhadatta, Buddhaghosa and Dhammapala along with interpretations and explanations of the modern scholars. Thus the Dictionary reflects fair and true understanding of the entire Buddhist doctrine to the readers.
