Canonical texts

This page contains links to translations of Buddhist scriptures. The list doesn’t attempt to be complete or exhaustive, doesn’t presume anything about quality and (rarely) has anything to do with anyone in the FWBO.

The list only includes sites I know about: if you recommend a translation, it will be considered for inclusion here. Please email me.
