This is the earliest collection of Buddhist teachings and the only text recognized as canonical by Theravada Buddhists. Also referred to as the Pali Canon, after the language in which it was first written.
Many commentaries have been added over the centuries.
Tripitaka means "three baskets,". The text was written on long, narrow leaves, which were sewn at the edges then grouped into bunches and stored in baskets.
Mahayana Buddhism reveres the Tripitaka as a sacred text, but adds to it the Sutras, which reflect distinctively Mahayana concepts.
Most of the Mahayana Sutras, which number over two thousand, were written between 200 BCE and 200 CE, the period in which Mahayana Buddhism developed.
Some of the famous texts the Lotus Sutra and Heart Sutra.
