Chinese-English Buddhist dictionary lookup
Enter Chinese text for one or multiple words into the input field below to find each word and its meaning. Reverse lookup by English and Pinyin may be used for single words.
Search for words using traditional or simplified Chinese text, English words, Hanyu pinyin, or analyze an entire text block. Top searches: fa hua jing, amitabha sutra, Mohe zhi guan, 六祖壇經, mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra, 華嚴經, 慈悲喜捨. Longer example: 觀自在菩薩行深般若波羅蜜多時，照見五蘊皆空，度一切苦厄 (From the Heart Sūtra). You may also try full text search or multilingual lookup.
The NTI Reader Buddhist Dictionary Chrome Extension is now available. The extension adds a context menu when text on a web page is selected so that term can be used to lookup and entry in the Chinese dictionary. You can lookup terms with simplified or traditional Chinese or pinyin, or reverse lookup with an English equivalent. See extension support page for more details.
