Atthakatha Pali Commentary Lookup

Hey everyone. I’ve done it again… a half-a-day gone to never return and all I have to show for it is some gobbledeegook in cyberspace. Actually, this time it is kind of exciting, now that I finally have a way to look up words referenced in the commentaries. It’s pretty rough right now, but you can check it out… it works, I think. Here’s a screenshot:

So, to use the lookup, just select “ATT” from the dictionary drop-down, then type in the beginning of an entry to see what is in the commentaries. Clicking on the results opens the referencing paragraph in the main window. For example, if you want to know what is said about “yutta”, for instance, you would find the following:

yutta

K 5.2.2.2 Para. 19 [03] tattha M dhajini nti senaṃ. yutta nti uyyuttaṃ. savāhana nti girimekhalanāgarājasahitaṃ. paccuggacchāmī ti abhimukho upari gamissāmi, so ca kho tejeneva, na kāyena. kasmā? mā maṃ ṭhānā acāvayi, maṃ etasmā ṭhānā aparājitapallaṅkā māro mā cālesīti vuttaṃ hoti. nappasahatī ti sahituṃ na sakkoti, nābhibhavati vā. āmaṃ patta nti kācajātaṃ mattikābhājanaṃ. asmanā ti pāsāṇena. sesamettha pākaṭameva.

K 15.1.5.2 Para. 56 [03] tattha ariyavuttina nti ariyācāre vattamānānaṃ. bhusa nti daḷhaṃ balavaṃ. atibrūhayī ti anantaragāthāya āgataṃ “mā bhāyī”ti vacanaṃ vadanto atibrūhesi mahāsaddaṃ nicchāresi. aṭṭhāsī ti sace nesādo rājānaṃ paharissati, ahaṃ pahāraṃ sampaṭicchissāmīti jīvitaṃ pariccajitvā purato aṭṭhāsi. vissāsaya nti vissāsento assāsento. byatha nti byathitaṃ bhītaṃ rājānaṃ “mā bhāyī”ti iminā vacanena vissāsento. tādisā ti tumhādisā ñāṇavīriyasampannā. yoga nti ñāṇavīriyayogaṃ. yutta nti anucchavikaṃ. dhammūpasañhita nti kāraṇanissitaṃ. tena pariyāpadānenā ti tena mayā payuttena yogena parisuddhena. pamokkhasī ti muccissasi.

K 15.3.4 Para. 163 [03] tattha purisaṃ asaṃsī ti attano upaṭṭhākaṃ āṇāpesi. ājañña nti kāraṇākāraṇajānanakasindhavaṃ. yutta nti kappitaṃ.
