For the Pali Canon and commentaries, I have relied almost entirely
on the editions published in Bangkok by Mahamakut Rajavidyalaya
Press. The two exceptions are the Pali Text Society's edition of
the Kankhavitarani, edited by Dorothy Maskell, and the Harvard
Oriental Series' edition of the Visuddhimagga, edited by Henry
Clarke Warren and Dharmananda Kosambi.
