I would like to know if there exist a PDF version of Tripitaka which is compatible with an eBook reader(Kindle, Kobo alike)?

  • Thankyou, At the moment I am looking for Bhikkhu Bodhi's Samannaphala Sutta Commentary – Candana Bhikkhu Oct 13 '16 at 6:05
  • I found this PDF which is his translation but without the commentary. It is "Extracted from The Fruits of Recluseship: The Samaññaphala Sutta and its Commentaries" -- which (as far as I can tell from Google) is a paperback available from Amazon or maybe from here (but I don't see evidence that it's published as an eBook). – ChrisW Oct 13 '16 at 9:20
  • I hesitate to suggest this because some people don't agree with everything he writes, but if I want a commentary then the first place I think of looking is dharmafarer.org/wordpress/sutta-titles-2 ... there, many suttas are translated with an introduction and footnotes and cross-references, each in its own PDF, for example here is the one for the Samannaphala Sutta. – ChrisW Oct 13 '16 at 9:24

I am presuming you are looking for translations. There is the Buddha Jayanthi edition which has both Sinhala and Pali.

English

Multi languages

Pali

Sinhala (Since you name sounds like a Sinhalese name including including some in Singhala script)

As well as the suttas which are listed in this answer:

You can find here some selected sutta translations from the Pali Canon, as translated by Thanissaro Bhikku to English, in the azw3, mobi, epub and pdf formats. With Kindle, please use the mobi format for best results.
