I didn’t put this in the Abidhamma section because it doesnt disccus the concepts of Abidhamma. I ‘ve got difficulty finding what is reliable or not. Is Abidhamma different from commentaries? I saw on Wikipedia that there were Abhidhamma commentaries + the canonical Abhidhamma. Is Abidhamma reliable? You said in https://puredhamma.net/historical-background/tipitaka-commentaries-helpful-or-misleading/ that there are three original commentaries, Patisambhidamagga, Petakopadesa, and Nettippakarana. What about Milindapanha , since it is in the Khuddaka Nikaya too?
Yes. Abhidhamma is different from the Commentaries.
– Tipitaka means “three baskets”: Sutta Pitaka, Vinaya Pitaka, and Abhidhamma Pitaka.
Yes. Patisambhidamagga, Petakopadesa, and Nettippakarana are the 3 original commentaries.
“What about Milindapanha , since it is in the Khuddaka Nikaya too?”
– Milindapanha is not a Commentary. It has recorded conversations between an Arahant (Nagesena) and a Greek King (Milinda) who controlled a part of India at that time (a descendant of Alexander the Great). He was a Buddhist and asked a good set of questions.
