The Sutta Pitaka, the second division of the Tipitaka, consists of more than 10,000 suttas (discourses) delivered by the Buddha and his close disciples during and shortly after the Buddha's forty-five year teaching career, as well as many additional verses by other members of the Sangha. More than one thousand sutta translations are available on this website.

The suttas are grouped into five nikayas, or collections:

Digha Nikaya

The „Long“ Discourses (Pali digha

= „long“) consists of 34 suttas, including the longest ones in the Canon. The subject matter of these suttas ranges widely, from colorful folkloric accounts of the beings inhabiting the deva worlds (DN 20) to down-to-earth practical meditation instructions (DN 22), and everything in between. Recent scholarship suggests that a distinguishing trait of the Digha Nikaya may be that it was „intended for the purpose of propaganda, to attract converts to the new religion.“(1)

Majjhima Nikaya

The „Middle-length“ Discourses (Pali majjhima

= „middle“) consists of 152 suttas of varying length. These range from some of the most profound and difficult suttas in the Canon (e.g., MN 1) to engaging stories full of human pathos and drama that illustrate important principles of the law of kamma (e.g., MN 57, MN 86).

Samyutta Nikaya

The „Grouped“ Discourses (Pali samyutta = „group“ or „collection“) consists of 2,889 relatively short suttas grouped together by theme into 56 samyuttas.

Anguttara Nikaya

The „Further-factored“ Discourses (Pali anga = „factor“ + uttara = „beyond,“ „further“) consists of several thousand short suttas, grouped together into eleven nipatas according to the number of items of Dhamma covered in each sutta. For example, the Eka-nipata („Book of the Ones“) contains suttas about a single item of Dhamma; the Duka-nipata („Book of the Twos“) contains suttas dealing with two items of Dhamma, and so on.

Khuddaka Nikaya

The „Division of Short Books“ (Pali khudda = „smaller,“ „lesser“), consisting of fifteen books (eighteen in the Burmese edition):

  1. Khuddakapatha — The Short Passages

  2. Dhammapada — Der Pfad des Dhammas

  3. Udana — Exclamations

  4. Itivuttaka — The Thus-saids

  5. Sutta Nipata — Die Sutta Sammlung

  6. Vimanavatthu — Stories of the Celestial Mansions

  7. Petavatthu — Die Geschichten der hungrigen Geister

  8. Theragatha — Verses of the Elder Monks

  9. Therigatha — Verse der frühen Nonnen

  10. Jataka — Birth Stories

  11. Niddesa — Exposition

  12. Patisambhidamagga — Path of Discrimination

  13. Apadana — Stories

  14. Buddhavamsa — History of the Buddhas

  15. Cariyapitaka — Basket of Conduct

  16. Nettippakarana (Burmese Tipitaka only)

  17. Petakopadesa (Burmese Tipitaka only)

  18. Milindapañha — Questions of Milinda (Burmese Tipitaka only)
