Best way to go directly to a sutta if the number is known

If I google “SN 20:4” I can find’s version. But even googling “SN 20:4” or using this site’s search inputbox with “SN 20:4” I can’t find SuttaCentral without guessing about the correct vagga and then navigating to it. Is there an easier way that I’m missing?

Funny you should ask. Have you tried this brand new cool tool from @Snowbird

Feedback wanted here …


Well that certainly answers my question! Accessing “SN 20:4” or “SN20:4” works perfectly. A few quirks exist for more ambiguous things & option selections (I need to comment on that feedback thread). Thanks very much, @stu.

For sutta central search, go to suttacentral website, use the internal search. Don’t put space between the letters and numbers. SN20.4 not SN 20.4

Also, use . not :


Thank you @NgXinZhao! I’ve bookmarked SuttaCentral to use as a search template so I don’t forget :slight_smile:

On SC, either just write the number in the URL:

Or write it in the search bar.
