The Sutta Pitaka is the second of three sections of the Tipitaka or Pali Canon which is a collection of Buddhist texts on Theravada Buddhism. The other two sections are the Vinaya Pitaka and the Abhidhamma Pitaka.
Discourses from the Sutta Pitaka deal with a variety of topics including moral rules, legends, monastic life, Buddhist principles such as dependent origination and much more.
Learning these Suttas can greatly deepen your intellectual understanding of the Dhamma, and thereby inspire you towards a pure and wholesome Dharmic existence through the practical application of the Dhamma teachings in your day-to-day life.
