Pali diacriticals for PuTTY

Published on 2013/07/15, by in Tech.

I recently needed the ability to view Pali diacriticals on a remote shell session using the PuTTY application. The following steps were performed on a Windows 8 system.

  • Download and install PuTTY
  • Download and install the DejaVu Sans Mono fonts
    • Extract the archive with 7-Zip
    • Select the four monospace fonts, right-click, and Install
  • Launch PuTTY and edit/create a saved session
    • From the Window Appearance category, Change the font to DejaVu Sans Mono
    • From the Window Translation category, select UTF-8 from the remote character set pull-down
    • Within the Connection Data category, add a LANG environment variable with the value en_US.UTF-8
    • Save the session

Buddha Dust

Published on 2012/08/10, by in Tech, Utterances.

Just stumbled across another wonderful resource whilst looking for a copy of an old font I had once used called MozPali, which I found within the files and links section:

Evam Me Sutam

All the good old spells begin this way

The Buddha Dust web presence is a presentation of the Pali (The Buddha’s Teaching) in a way that reflects the position that holds that this system is a powerful “spell”* designed to provide both the theoretical substructure and the practical means for accomplishing it’s stated goal of bringing a total and complete end to the experience of Pain: DUKKHA of any sort

What you will find here is a set of tools one can use in one’s effort to put this wonderful teaching into practice. These tools explore the inter-relationships between the Pali Language, The Pali as a system, and understanding and putting the system into practice in today’s world.

Included in the structure is a comprehensive course on the system (The Pali Line) which starts from the assumption that the reader is a complete beginner and ends with the information needed at the most advanced levels — this is itself in the form of a “sutta” (spell) and one should strive to understand it as such. In addition are included various translations and commentaries, critical examinations, an extensive Bibliography, Appendixes to important information, Links, and a FAQ/Announcement/Book Review section called DhammaTalk. Listed below is a “first level” contents for the site, long sections have their own, more detailed contents pages
