Chinese Buddhist Canon

The Buddhist texts presented below are original English translations from the Taishō Tripiṭaka, the most widely used edition of the Chinese Buddhist canon. The great majority of texts in this canon have never been translated into English, and their original translation into Chinese was a large scale effort spanning around 800 years. A selection of texts from this canon is available below. For more early Buddhist texts, see SuttaCentral. For more Mahāyāna texts, see the BDK English Tripitaka.
