The Voice of the Silence: Table of Updates

From the 1889 First Edition to the Online Edition.

Note: this is an ongoing project. Last updated: December 3, 2019.


Rationale: The purpose of these corrections and updates is to facilitate serious study. Updated terms allow students, academics or researchers to quickly and easily search for those terms online, with the correct and most common modern spellings. Consistent spelling of techincal terms allows for easy and complete word-searches throughout the text. Updated styling, i.e. in the formatting of book titles, etc. allows for easy referencing.

The updates and corrections are made throughout the whole text, including when the author is quoting from another work wherein a term may have been spelled differently. Thus it should be clear that this online edition is meant solely as a study and research aid, and not as a verbatim record of the original publication or of quoted works.

Changed to anglicized version of the proper IAST Sanskrit. The proper Sanskrit is brāhmaṇa. Brahmin remains the common anglisized form, but the long ā ought to be present to distinguish clearly between a brāhmaṇa and brahman. Brahmanism ought to be used to refer to the ancient Indian teachings related to Brahman, and Brāhminism to that which is related to the Brāhmin caste.

Changed to proper Sinhalese transliteration based on ALA-LC (උපාද්ය); added proper IAST Sanskrit in square brackets (उपाध्याय). The spelling HPB uses comes from the Sinhalese and represents a shortened version of උපාධ්‍යාය (upādhyāya) or උපාධ්‍යායයා (upādhyāyayā); the same shortned version is found in Pali (upajjha shortened from upajjhāya) and other Indian languages, e.g. Marathi where the shortened version is upādhyā. We have maintained the Sinhalese spelling here and added the Sanskrit for clarification.

Gnyana

Jñāna

Changed to proper IAST Sanskrit (ज्ञान). Spellings such as “gnyana,” “gnâna,” “dnyan,” etc. are based on the corruptions of the original Sanskrit word in languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Nepalese, etc., and their pronunciations, which often drop the final “a” and corrupt the “jña” to “gny” (see Hindi IPA pronunciation /ɡjɑːn/, or Marathi pronunciation “dnyan”), whereas the proper Sanskrit pronunciation is as it is written “jñana” (IPA /ˈd͡ʑɲɑː.n̪ɐ/). The Indian language corruptions of the Sanskrit and the resulting phonetic romanizations caused confusion among theosophists between the terms jñāna and dhyāna, as is seen in the term jñāna-marga, which some have mistakenly rendered dhyāna-marga.

The spelling HPB uses comes from the Sinhalese and represents a shortened version of උපාධ්‍යාය (upādhyāya) or උපාධ්‍යායයා (upādhyāyayā); the same shortned version is found in Pali (upajjha shortened from upajjhāya) and other Indian languages, e.g. Marathi where the shortened version is upādhyā. We have maintained the Sinhalese spelling here and added the Sanskrit for clarification.

Dad-Dugpa

Dad-Drukpa [དད་? འབྲུག་པ་, dad? 'brug pa]

Changed to THL Simplified Phonetic Transcription of Tibetan; added Tibetan script and Wylie transliteration in square brackets. The first part of this term (“dad-”) is of unknown origin. HPB borrows this from Emil Schlagintweit’s Buddhism in Tibet, 1863, p. 74. The Tibetan word “dad pa” means “faith,” (also “devotion, faith” in Dzongkha or Bhutanese) and it is possible that this is the term that is meant, perhaps as a sub-sect of the Drukpas, but we have not been able to find evidence of this usage. Other possibilities may be the Tibetan “'dod-” (desire), “'dad-” (having attachment or desire for the dead), “bdud-” (demon), etc. It may also have been a typographical mistake in Schlagintweit’s book. We thus leave the spelling as is until the correct word can be verified.

Brahm’

Added ’ instead of the proper IAST Sanskrit (Brahmā or Brahma). This maintains HPB’s poetic rendering while showing that the proper spelling ought to include a closing “a” or “ā.” brahmā (ब्रह्मा) is the masculine nominative singular and brahma (ब्रह्म) the neuter nominative singular of brahman (ब्रह्मन्). It is almost certainly Brahmā which is meant in this context.

Aryahata

Arahatta

Changed from Sanskrit to proper Pali term (in IAST transliteration). In the 1889 edition, the term here given was “Aryahata,” with the footnote indicating that this derives from the Sanskrit Arhat or Arhan. However, the Sanskrit term ārya comes from a different root (ṛ) than the terms arhat or arhan (from the root arh). The term for this path in Sanskrit would therefore be something like “arhata” instead of “āryahata.” However, there is no Sanskrit noun “arhata” (nor “āryahata”) in the Sanskrit dictionaries or in common use. Because of this, it seems best to use the common equivalent in Pali (arahatta), as it is both in common use and holds the exact meaning intended by connecting it to the Sanskrit terms “arhat” or “arhan” (or their Pali equivalent “arahant”).

Gnyana

Jñāna

Changed to proper IAST Sanskrit (ज्ञान). Spellings such as “gnyana,” “gnâna,” “dnyan,” etc. are based on the corruptions of the original Sanskrit word in languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Nepalese, etc., and their pronunciations, which often drop the final “a” and corrupt the “jña” to “gny” (see Hindi IPA pronunciation /ɡjɑːn/, or Marathi pronunciation “dnyan”), whereas the proper Sanskrit pronunciation is as it is written “jñana” (IPA /ˈd͡ʑɲɑː.n̪ɐ/). The Indian language corruptions of the Sanskrit and the resulting phonetic romanizations caused confusion among theosophists between the terms jñāna and dhyāna, as is seen in the term jñāna-marga, which some have mistakenly rendered dhyāna-marga.

Changed to Chinese Hanyu Pinyin transliteration and added Chinese character in square brackets.

Jiào-mén [教門]

Changed to Chinese Hanyu Pinyin transliteration and added Chinese characters in square brackets (教門). HPB drew her spelling of these two terms from Edkins, Chinese Buddhism, p. 155 et seq., but the second term seems to perhaps be an error. Jiào-mén means literally “religious-teaching-gate” or the gate of religious teaching, but the term traditionally used is Jiào-xià [教下], the “lower religious teaching” as contrasted with the “higher” school. Thus instead of ​-mén this likely ought to be -xià. However, we have chosen to keep the term used by Edkins and HPB.

Changed to proper IAST Pali or Sinhalese transliteration (रट्ठपाल or රට්ඨපාල) and Sinhalese transliteration based on ALA-LC (සුත්‍රසන්නෙ). The Raṭṭhapāla Sutta (Pali) becomes the Raṭṭhapāla Sūtra (Sinhalese). A sanne (or sannaya, සන්නය) is a Sinhalese paraphrased translation/commentary or a “interverbal paraphrase/interpretation” of a sutra. Thus the Raṭṭhapāla Sūtrasanne is such a paraphrase/interpretation of the Raṭṭhapāla Sūtra.

Dhyân Mârga

Jñānamārga

Changed to proper IAST Sanskrit (ज्ञानमार्ग). The spelling in the original edition is drawn from the Marathi pronunciation (see p. 65-66), and then misspelled in this note. We have corrected it to the proper Sanskrit transliteration.

Dhyâna

Jñāna

Corrected the term; correct term is given in proper IAST Sanskrit (ज्ञान). This was a printer’s error based on a misreading of the Marathi spelling of the previous term. Spellings such as “gnyana,” “gnâna,” “dnyan,” etc. are based on the corruptions of the original Sanskrit word in languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Nepalese, etc., and their pronunciations, which often drop the final “a” and corrupt the “jña” to “gny” (see Hindi IPA pronunciation /ɡjɑːn/, or Marathi pronunciation “dnyan”), whereas the proper Sanskrit pronunciation is as it is written “jñana” (IPA /ˈd͡ʑɲɑː.n̪ɐ/). The Indian language corruptions of the Sanskrit and the resulting phonetic romanizations caused confusion among theosophists between the terms jñāna and dhyāna, as is seen in the term jñāna-marga, which some have mistakenly rendered dhyāna-marga.

Dhyani-Buddhas

Dhyāni-Buddhas

Changed to anglicized plural of the proper IAST Sanskrit (ध्यानिबुद्ध). The term “dhyāni-buddha” was first used by Brian Hodgson, then adopted by Emil Schlagintweit, T. W. Rhys Davids and others and even into Monier-William’s Sanskrit-English Dictionary, from which it has come into common use even today, but no such compound term has been found in any Sanskrit text. The term is, however, a proper Sanskrit compound by the rules of Sanskrit grammar (dhyānin + buddha = dhyānibuddha), hence we have simply corrected the diacritic use and left the term as is.

Parabrahm

Parabrahma

Changed to proper IAST Sanskrit (परब्रह्म). “Parabrahma” is a compound of two terms: para+brahman, declined in the neuter singular. In northern India it is common to eliminate the final “a” at the end of such terms, for instance “yog” instead of “yoga”; hence “prabrahm” instead of “parabrahma.” In Sanskrit texts, the common forms given are as a declined compound, “parabrahma,” or as two declined terms “param brahma.” The term in its undeclined form “parabrahman” falls under the same general approach as “karman” or “dharman,” both of which are commonly given in their neuter singular declined forms (“karma” and “dharma”); we have chosen to do the same here, and have thus changed all instances to “parabrahma.”
