An application to read, search, and define the Theravāda Buddhist Pāḷi Tipiṭaka. It also includes English texts that can be read alongside the Pāḷi texts.

TPP is a software program to help one navigate the vast amounts of Pāḷi texts. It includes, 21 English Ebooks that can be displayed side by side with the Pāḷi texts. The Dictionaries and Search functions are where TPP separates itself from the other Pāḷi readers. It is very fast and totally offline. This application was created at Pa-Auk Forest Monastery in Maymyo. The Mac app supports Sinhala, Myanmar, Thai and Devanagiri Scripts.

The Search function is fast. very very fast. Click on the matrix to limit your search or select all books. As you type, we show you what is available. Click on the word and jump to your searches quickly by list or with a table of search results.

The Dictionary panel can display multiple definitions from the selected dictionaries. You can disable or enable them with a simple click to the checkboxes. You can even search for English words you may want to understand clearer by clicking on the english words inside the panel. The dictionaries are also integrated with Sanskrit.
