Help with tibetan parralels

I have been FALLING IN LOVE with

https://suttacentral.net/
https://canon.dharmapearls.net/
and

Being able to browse, read, cut and paste, compare and contrast translated material from Pali, Chinese and Tibetan is an incredible gift, and one that would for me have been next to impossible just a few years ago.

dharmapearls and suttacentral work great together and it is easy to find the nikaya and agama praralels - howevert his is much more opaque for me when it comes to 84000, suttacentral seems to sometimes list tibetan parralels, for example for DN2, but they are in tibetan script and google translate doesnt seem to work on them. I vaguely remember from years ago a japanese? site that listed kangyur parallels to taisho texts, but can’t find it now.

If anyone can point me to ANY texts that are parralel to pali ones on 84000 it would be hugely appreciated.

There is this one: Teaching the Fundamental Exposition and Detailed Analysis of Dependent Arising | 84000 Reading Room

Thank you bikkhu! I must confess I already found that one :slight_smile: and another on the enlightenment factors that apart from additional reminders not to take the terms as other than conventional is more or less the same as in the suttas. I am thinking i might try and go through the whole site and writer up a table.

Thanks Bhante!

Chapter 22 of the Lalita­vistara has the Buddha sequentially entering the 4 jhanas before achieving 3 knowledges in the 3 watches of the night, although interestingly the order is slightly different in that seeing the arising and passing of beings comes first, then past lives, then the destruction of the taints.

If i remember correctly in the pali past lives comes first, being arising and passing second and taints third.

Which brings me to the embarrassing fact that from this deep dive into 84000 I have forgotten the best sutta reference for the awakening in the 3 stages o the night in the Pali, can anyone help?

This one gives a Mahayana gloss to the 37 aides to enlightenment, with some interesting variants to the standard explanations.

those and the 12 nidanas one that Khemarato Bhikkhu linked to are the main ones I have found so far.

Not sure about the “best”, but you can find it here:

The Lalita­vistara also gives the 12 nidanas as part of the enlightenment experience in the 3rd watch of the night.
