s there an online database that either contains the Buddhist canon in either English or Chinese?

I've had a difficult time tracking down first hand sources other than the usual suspects (Heart Sutra, Prajnaparamita sutra, etc). I've been looking for anything related to pratityasamutpada in the abhidharma, but I don't even know where to look, or even if English translations exist.

Does anyone know where to look?


There are several large scholarly collections you can access freely:

International Association of Buddhist Studies

Digital Sanskrit Buddhist Canon

WWW Database of Chinese Buddhist texts
Digital Database of Buddhist Tripitaka Catalogues

The SAT Daizōkyō Text Database

English Translation of the Buddhist Canon and Publication Project

hope this helps
