Buddhist terms and concepts

Several Buddhist terms and concepts lack direct translations into English that cover the breadth of the original term. In this list, the terms are in languages most relevant to their traditions, that is: English for terms that are common to all traditions. Pali for Theravada, Sanskrit for mainstream Mahayana, Tibetan for Vajrayana and Japanese for Zen. A short translation and a link to a (hopefully) more in-depth article is given, as well as the relevant tradition(s).
