Tipitaka Network :: Sutta Spectra
The Sangha of the Blessed One's disciples is practising the good way, practising the straight way, practising the true way, practising the proper way; that is, the four pairs of persons, the eight types of individuals -- this Sangha of the Blessed One's disciples is worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of reverential salutation, the unsurpassed field of merit for the world.
Anguttara Nikaya 6:10

Sutta Spectra! is a multilingual website. It contains text in various Asian and Roman scripts. To view these text properly, you will need at least a web browser which support Unicode. We also use non-Unicode fonts to display certain scripts not yet common in Unicode fonts. More information is provided in the next two sections.
Unicode Support Requirement
You require a web browser which support Unicode to view the minimum set of scripts, as listed:
- Pali in Roman script Pāḷi
- Chinese (Simplified) 中文简体
- Chinese (Traditional) 中文繁體
- Japanese 日本語
- Korean 한국어
- Thai ภาษาไทย
- Vietnamese tiếng Việt
You also need a Unicode font which include all the above scripts.
A setback for us is that most of the freely available Unicode fonts do not contain some of the scripts we are using. A more convenient way is for us to use non-Unicode fonts. The disadvantage is that these fonts are only available for Windows systems. If you are using a non-Windows system, you will not be able to view some of the texts properly.
- Burmese: If you have CSCD installed on your system, you already has the font we are using. If not, simply click here to download the VRI Myanmar CB font [32KB].
- Sinhala: To view Sinhala text, you will need to install the Tipitaka_Sinhala1 font from Metta Network.
