Pali Text Society Tipitaka version, - historically the first Western edition.

The input of the entirety of the words of the Buddha and his immediate disciples, as preserved in the Sri Lankan version of the Pali "Tripitaka," was completed at the "Sri Vajiragnana Dharmayatanaya," Bhikkhu Training Center, Maharagama, Sri Lanka in 1994. The texts, consisting of an estimated thirty-five million characters, were keyed in over a period of three years, commencing in 1991. The edition used as the basis for this was the Buddha Jayanti Tripitaka Series in fifty-eight volumes, published under the patronage of the government of Sri Lanka (Ceylon) during the 1960s and 1970s. The project was carried out under the auspices of Venerable Madihe Pagnnaseha Mahanayake Thera, Head of the Amarapura branch of the Buddhist Sangha in Sri Lanka, with financial sponsorship from the Chandraratne family.
