RESOURCE> Bibliography of Translations from the Chinese Buddhist Canon

RESOURCE> PDFs of BDK English Tripitika

The quality of these PDFs is not uniform, as some are recently-converted word processor files, while others are scans of older books. Henceforth BDK will be publishing all new releases in this format as well as book format.
