A Theravada Library


With a focus on Thai Theravada Buddhism (including the ascetic Thai Forest Tradition), the website gives access to a large corpus of reference religious and philosophical texts.

With self-study tools for learning Pali language, the online library includes English translations of important texts from the Buddhist scriptures, such as stories from the Jatakas (pages from the life of the Buddha).

Edited by Access to Insight / Barre Center for Buddhist Stories (BCBS), since 1995.
