Sutta Central (no affilliation with this work apart from gratitude) has supplied much of the material used in these pages. The material includes recent translations of the four Nikayas by Bhante Sujato. The first draft of the translation of the Therigatha was made by Jessica Walton and it was completed by Bhikkhu Sujato for Sutta Central in 2019. All original material on Sutta Central is dedicated to the Public Domain as per Creative Commons Zero (CC0 1.0 Universal).
This includes all text, design, software, and images created by SuttaCentral or persons working for SuttaCentral, on the domain suttacentral.net, or any domains or subdomains owned or managed by SuttaCentral, unless otherwise specified.
The translation of the Sutta Nipata included on these pages was edited by Bhante Sujato as part of the full translation of the Sutta Nipāta with commentary prepared from a draft handwritten and typed manuscript of Laurence Khantipalo Mills in 2015. The project was managed by Laurence’s students Michael Wells and Gary Dellora, and initial digitizing of the text was by Sean Read. The full text of this translation (as well as all the other texts on Sutta Central) is available at Sutta Central Downloads.
