About this app

App for reading the Theravada Buddhist Pali Tipitaka, commentaries, and sub-commentaries in Pali. It is suitable for advanced students of the Pali language, as it does not include English translations. It does have several Pali English dictionaries.
 
Dhamma-based applications complete with devotional and special parittas and their translations, tripitics in Indonesian as well as articles on Buddhism are easy to read.
 
Tripiṭaka meaning "Triple Basket" is the traditional term for ancient collections of Buddhist scriptures. Tripiṭaka has become Buddhist scripture synonymous used for many schools collections, although their general divisions do not match a strict division into three piṭakas.

The Tripiṭaka is composed of three main categories of texts that collectively constitute the Buddhist canon: the Sutra Piṭaka, the Vinaya Piṭaka, and the Abhidhamma Piṭaka. The Sūtra Piṭaka is older than the Vinaya Piṭaka, and the Abhidharma Piṭaka represents a later tradition of scholastic analysis and systematization of the contents of the Sutta Piṭaka originating at least two centuries after the other two parts of the canon.

The Vinaya Piṭaka appears to have grown gradually as a commentary and justification of the monastic code (Prātimokṣa), which presupposes a transition from a community of wandering mendicants (the Sūtra Piṭaka period ) to a more sedentary monastic community (the Vinaya Piṭaka period). Even within the Sūtra Piṭaka it is possible to detect older and later texts.
