Readings in Theravada Buddhism: This is a fairly large and complex website, containing hundreds of books, articles, sutta translations, and more. BPS publications represent the standpoint of Theravada Buddhism, the oldest living Buddhist tradition of which the Pali Canon gives the most authentic account of what the historical Buddha himself actually taught. In a span of nearly five decades the BPS has become a major Buddhist publisher with hundreds of titles and a field of distribution extending to ninety countries.
The society was founded in 1881 by T.W. Rhys Davids "to foster and promote the study of Pali texts''. During the Society's first 100 years of existence the entire Pali canon was published in the Roman script, and the greater part was translated into English. All the major commentaries (atthakathas) were also published, and a few were translated. In addition to these canonical and commentarial texts, many other post-canonical texts were edited and translated.
