Abhidhamma Piṭaka (Pāli; Skt., Abhidharma Piṭaka). The third and final section of the Buddhist canon (tripiṭaka). Each school of early Buddhism had its own particular version of the Abhidhamma Pitaka, though the only complete versions now extant are those of the Sarvāstivādins (in Chinese and Tibetan) and the Theravādins (in Pāli).
