 +====== Technical Notes ======
 +
 +1. Many passages from various texts such as [[BTTS]] publications and other source materials have been slightly edited and/or retranslated without each specific instance being indicated.
 +
 +2. In quoted passages some attempt, though not an exhaustive one, has been
 +made to standardize terminology.
 +
 +3. Conventions:​
 +
 +a) [[Sanskrit]] and [[Pali]] [[diacritical mark]]s are missing in the text of the
 +entries but hopefully can be added in later editions. [[diacritical mark]]s are
 +included in the [[Sanskrit]] and [[Pali]] sections of entry [[Reference]]s.
 +
 +b) [[Two]] slightly different conventions of [[Romanization]] have been used for
 +[[Sanskrit]] words depending upon whether or not they are treated as English.
 +For those treated as English no [[diacritical mark]]s will be used, and so the
 +spelling is that English spelling closest to the [[pronunciation]].
 +
 +c) The following [[Sanskrit]] [[Buddhist]] terms have been treated as English words:
 +[[Buddha]], [[Dharma]], [[Sangha]], [[Arhat]], [[Bhikshu]],​ [[Bhikshuni]],​ [[Bodhisattva]],​ [[Buddha]], [[Hinayana]],​ [[Karma]], [[Mahayana]],​ [[Ayurveda]],​ [[Vata]], [[Pitta]], [[Kapha]], [[Dosha]], ​ [[Prana]], [[Nirvana]],​ [[Pratyekabuddha]],​ [[Samadhi]],​ [[Stupa]], [[Sutra]], [[Theravada]],​ [[Vajrayana]],​ [[Yoga]].
 +
 +The following words have been italicized to indicate that they have not yet
 +[[become]] part of the English [[language]]:​ [[Asura]], [[Bodhi]], [[Dhyana]], [[Gatha]], [[Kalpa]], [[Paramita]],​ [[Prajna]], [[Sharira]],​ [[Skandha]],​ [[Shramana]],​ [[Shravaka]],​ [[Upasaka]],​ [[Upasika]],​ [[Vajra]], [[Yang]], [[Yin]], [[Dhatu]], [[Ojas]], [[Tejas]], [[Ama]], [[Ashwagandha]],​ [[Triphala]],​ [[Shilajit]],​ [[Amalaki]].
 +
 +Of course other less well-known non-English terms are also underlined.
 +
 +d) For the [[name]]s of countries each [[country]]'​s own [[pronunciation]] and spelling
 +of its [[name]] has been used; therefore: [[Nippon]], not [[Japan]]; [[Deutschland]],​ not
 +[[Germany]];​ and [[Zhong Guo]], not [[China]].
 +
 +e) The [[Yale]] [[system]] of [[Romanization]] has been adopted for [[Jungwen]] (i.e.,
 +[[Chinese]]),​ because as [[read]] by non-linguists it most closely approximates the
 +actual [[pronunciation]]. However, in many quoted passages the [[read]]er will find
 +other [[system]]s of [[Romanization]]. Conversion tables to the more widely used
 +[[Wade Giles]] and [[Pinyin]] [[Romanization]]s are found at the end of the book. 
 +
 +NOTE: We are in the process of converting the [[Romanization]] to [[Pinyin]] ​
 +where possible due to its popularity in the [[Twenty-First Century]]
