Editor's Preface

This work gives a selection of verses that are recited when worshipping the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Saṅgha; and a collection of discourses that are popularly used as Safeguards.

Part of the chants found in this book are meant to be recited every day, and part rotate on a weekly basis.

The system for the chanting is as follows: first there is Recollection of the Three Treasures and other objects of worship, this is followed by Pūjā (which will depend on what is being offered).

Then the daily Parittaṁ section begins. After the Invitation to the Gods go to the chants for whatever day of the week it is.

At the end of the chants for the day there is meditation, and when finished you can proceed with the Conclusion.

In the Appendix are two other short pieces that can be recited in the indicated place when monastics are present.

This book has been revised in April, 2014 to bring it into line with the format that has been adopted in my larger chanting book Safeguard Recitals; and some small corrections and additions have been made at the same time.
