A dictionary of Chinese Buddhist terms : with Sanskrit and English equivalents and a Sanskrit-Pali index by William Edward Soothill( Book )

148 editions published between 1934 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This interpretive tool, first published in 1937, is now available for the first time in a paperback edition specially aimed at students of Chinese Buddhism." "Those who have endeavoured to read Chinese texts apart from the apprehension of a Sanskrit background have generally made a fallacious interpretation, for the Buddhist canon is basically a translation, or analogous to translation. In consequence, a large number of terms existing are employed approximately to connote imported ideas, as the Chinese translators understood those ideas. Various translators invented different terms; and, even when the same term was finally adopted, its connotation varied, sometimes widely, from the Chinese term of phrase as normally used by the Chinese."--Jacket
