SuttaCentral aims at facilitating the study of Buddhist texts from comparative and historical perspectives. It focuses on the texts that represent "Early Buddhism", texts preserved not only in the Pali Sutta and Vinaya Piṭakas but also in Chinese and Tibetan translations and in fragmentary remains in Sanskrit and other languages. SuttaCentral offers a gateway to this material by enabling users to quickly identify the Chinese, Tibetan, and/or Sanskrit parallels of any given Pali discourse or vice versa. Having found that information, one can then can click on the relevant links and consult the actual texts, most of which are accessible from other web-sites.
This is a database version of the Pali Canon (in Pali) based on the digitised text prepared by the Sri Lanka Tripitaka Project. The advantage of using this version of the Pali canon is that it makes it easy to search for individual words across all 20,946 pages at once and view the contexts in which they appear.
