Tripitaka is a Sanskrit word meaning Three Baskets. It is the traditional term used by Buddhist traditions to describe their various canons of scriptures.

The expression Three Baskets originally referred to three receptacles containing the scrolls on which the Buddhist scriptures were originally preserved.

Hence, the Tripitaka traditionally contains three "baskets" of teachings: a Sutra Pitaka, a Vinaya Pitaka and an Abhidharma Pitaka.

The meaning of the word Tripitakas can be taken as three times (in marathi languange word for three times is 'Tippat').

I have heard that in those days mahabharata was considered as the largest book; hence as answer to that buddhist people created a book of Budha's teachings three times bigger than Mahabharata, hence this book is called as Tripitakas (as 'three times' in length as that of Mahabharata. ).

Jabi Mir said: (Aug 14, 2014)  
The sacred book of Buddhism is called the Tripitaka (called Tipitaka in Pali). It is also called the Pali Canon, after the language in which it was first written.

It is written in an ancient Indian language called Pali which is very close to the language that the Buddha himself spoke. The Tripitaka is a very large book. The English translation of it takes up nearly forty volumes. Buddhism is based on Buddha's teachings. At first these were passed down by word of mouth and later were complied into two sets of scripture. One set by Council of Monks of the Theravada school (the Tripitaka) the other by the Mahayana school (the Sutras). Both were similar.

Both Theravada and Mahayana Buddhists generally accept the Tripitaka (called Tipitaka in Pali) as the Buddhist sacred writings.

The Tripitaka is the earliest collection of Buddhist scripture. It contains the texts with the strongest claim to being the words of the historical Buddha.

Rk Kushwaha said: (Aug 16, 2016)  
The Tripitakas were composed between about 500 BCE to about the start of the common era, likely written down for the first time in the 1st century BCE.

Each Buddhist sub-tradition had its own Tripitaka for its monasteries, written by its sangha, each set consisting of 32 books, in three parts or baskets of teachings: the basket of expected discipline from monks, a basket of discourse, and a basket of special doctrine.

The structure, the code of conduct and moral virtues in the Vinaya basket particularly, have similarities to some of the surviving Dharmasutra texts of Hinduism. Much of the surviving Tripitaka literature is in Pali, some in Sanskrit, as well as other local Asian languages.

Tripitaka is a Sanskrit word meaning Three Baskets. The sacred book of Buddhism is called the Tripitaka (called Tipitaka in Pali).

Tripiṭaka or Tipiṭaka is the traditional term for the Buddhist scriptures. The version canonical to Theravada Buddhism is generally referred to in English as the Pali Canon. Mahayana Buddhism also holds the Tripiṭaka to be authoritative but, unlike Theravadins, it also includes in its canon various derivative literature and commentaries that were composed much later.

The Tripiṭaka was composed between about 550 BCE.
