Pāḷi Text Society Logo

Pāḷi Text Society

The Society was founded in 1881 by T.W. Rhys Davids "to foster and promote the study of Pāḷi texts". It publishes Pāḷi texts in roman characters, translations in English and ancillary works including dictionaries, concordances, books for students of Pāḷi and a journal. As the List of Issues shows, most of the classical texts and commentaries have now been edited and many works translated into English. The Society aims to keep almost all its publications in print and to produce at least two new books and a volume of its Journal each year.

The Society is non-profit making and depends on the sale of its publications, on members' subscriptions and on the generosity of donors. Alongside its publishing activities, it provides Research Studentships for a number of people in a variety of countries who are working in the field of Pāḷi studies. It also supports the Fragile Palm Leaves Project, which is involved in the conservation and identification of Southeast Asian manuscripts.

The Internet Guide to Buddhism and Buddhist Studies

A vast site cataloging much of what is available on the net on all branches of Buddhism; on the other hand the site looks abandoned and much seems out of date.


This facility enables one to identify the Chinese, Tibetan, and Sanskrit "parallels" or "counterparts" to the suttas of the four main Pāḷi Nikayas - or vice versa. It is designed for those whose interest in the Early Buddhist discourses extends beyond the limits of the Pāḷi Sutta-pitaka to include the extensive corresponding materials found elsewhere: the Agamas and individual sutras preserved in Chinese, the occasional sutra translations contained in the Tibetan Kanjur, and the numerous published fragments of sutras in Sanskrit and related languages.


Sadhu Forum
A searchable and browseable directory of Theravada Buddhist resources around the world. It provides nicely annotated links to sites offering information on traditions, news and events, organizations (including monasteries, meditation centers, libraries, and temples), personalities, online reading materials, publications, audiovisual materials, and more. The categories are logical and navigation is simple.
