I, 71.—2. accomplishment in the Scriptures, study (learning by heart) of the holy texts Vism. 95. Also the Scriptures themselves as a body which is handed down through oral tradition. In this meaning the word is only found in later, dogmatic literature; —tīsu piṭakesu tividho pariyatti-bhedo DA. I, 21. At SnA 494 it is classed with paccaya dhutaṅga & adhigama; as a part of paṭibhāna at Nd1 234=Nd2 386. pariyattiṃ uggaṇhāti to undertake the learning (of the Scriptures) DhA. II, 30; cp.

Pali is the language of the Tipiṭaka, which is the sacred canon of Theravāda Buddhism and contains much of the Buddha’s speech. Closeley related to Sanskrit, both languages are used interchangeably between religions.
