Online Encyclopedia style database on Buddhism

Postby Earth Dragon » Sat Jan 26, 2013 2:54 pm

Hy Everyone. When i do my online reaserach on Buddhism , i m amazed on the large variety of all sorts of ideas, opinions, facts, fiction , reqruitment and so on and so forth.

What is the most austhentic and mostbresourcful single website, which would expalin the different aspects on buddhism. I m a follwoer of mahayana, but i would even like to see theravada websites.

I know of rigpawiki and dhammawiki. Are there any other bigger n better ones.

Is there a website on buddhism which would have thousands kf different aspects explained in a way so i could understand and reach it in english ( or mandarin ) ?

Thanx

Access To Insight is (IMO) the best online resource for the Pali canon and related texts - http://www.accesstoinsight.org/
You might find other useful stuff on http://www.dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=148 which is an "introductory resources" thread on (Theravada) Dhamma Wheel.
