Renaming the Tripitaka Koreana?

Director of the Center for Buddhist Studies Robert Buswell calls for renaming the Korean Buddhist canon to distinguish it from the Indian Tripitaka, given that its contents range far beyond that of the Indian canon.

See the English-language coverage of the September 2013 conference in Korea at which Professor Buswell spoke: The Korea Times and The Kyunghyang Shinmun.
