List of Buddhist Lists

Buddhism is famous for lists. One entire Nikaya, the Anguttara Nikaya is entirely a book of lists. I thought it might be useful to have a list of lists that doesn’t merely repeat the handful that everyone has heard a thousand times, but is also interlinked in ways that show how each teaching interpenetrates all the others. So here is a Buddhist list of lists with suttas to describe each. Have a look at let me know what other lists you’d like to see added.
