Is it possible to list out the section of the Tripitaka summarizing what areas they cover.
Do you mean Vinaya, Sutta Pitaka and Abidhamma?– konrad01Aug 11, 2014 at 21:37
a good point would be to explore what is more important for lay people inside Tipitaka– konrad01Aug 11, 2014 at 22:34
The Pitaka are the highest division. These have further subdivisions.– Suminda Sirinath S. DharmasenaAug 12, 2014 at 12:29
Since I don't know how deep in the Tipiṭaka's structure you want the answer, I'll try to give the most in-depth answer. I'll present the structure in a tree chart and, beneath it, I'll refer to an article with an in-depth analysis of the canon which provides the summaries.

Summaries are provided in "Chapter I: Textual Analysis of the article "An Analysis of the Pāḷi Canon" by Russell Webb. It also contains an excellent index of the canon, and an extensive bibliography.
Can I please get a hi res version of this chart, and a source for who owns/created it? When I click on "enlarge" the chart image goes black. Jul 13, 2019 at 14:08
try copy it and past it on a word page to have no black background, householder Abhaya Darpana– user11235Jul 13, 2019 at 14:38

@AbhayaDarpana I don't know where the image is from but I uploaded a new version of it which has a white instead of a transparent background -- i.stack.imgur.com/I2YXI.png– ChrisW ♦Jul 13, 2019 at 16:10
