Recently I have made a number of tables for the Ancient Buddhist Texts website, which can be filtered, and enable the student to quickly and easily find the document, or in some cases the word or phrase, they are looking for.
I have one which gives an overview of all the Jātaka stories, for instance, and lists Alternate Names, Descriptions of the stories, Characters, Parallels, etc.; and a similar name list table for the Pāḷi text of the Jātaka.
There are tables for the Dhammapada stories also, and for the collection of Buddhist Parables. A table in the Comparative Dhammapada allows for searching for any words or phrases across multiple languages of the Dhammapada verses.
There is also a table of the whole Suttapiṭaka, with links to texts in both Pāḷi and English where they exist, mainly as found on the SuttaCentral website.
I have now made an almost complete list of the documents on the Ancient Buddhist Texts website, with partial descriptions of what they are, and what language, or, where relevant, what type they are. This can be accessed from the front page of the site.
For a long time I have a google custom search engine on the website, but google really doesn’t understand Pāḷi very well, and often it seems students do not find the document they are looking for, so this new table is meant to rectify that situation.
