Hi, would anyone know where the data for this page comes from:
Early Buddhist texts from the Tipitaka (Tripitaka). Suttas (sutras) with the Buddha's teachings on mindfulness, insight, wisdom, and meditation.
I’m trying to figure out how to programatically query this (and similar) data. Is there an API or something through which I can access Pali dictionary terms and proper names?
Any help would be appreciated.
I believe that data is coming from this file (pretty big one, obviously):

Converting these from the originals must have been a huge amount of work!
Thank you so much, I’ll have a look. And absolutely, it’s only now that I appreciate just how much time and effort must have gone into this project!
Suttacentral uses this API:
The above dictionary is loaded into the browser and requires no further network access.
Hi, I did have a look at that but khagga’s comment answered my question. Thank you very much.
Worth noting that while this data isn’t from the Dictionary of Pali Personal Names, it is super awesome (thanks for the pointer
