Preface

This Pocketbook of Protection Chants provides all of the main safeguard chants that are used in a handy format that is thus easy to carry around.

In preparing the book I have avoided abbreviation except in the Dhammacakkappavattanasuttaṁ where the text can easily be reconstructed, however, in consideration of the size of the book I have omitted the translations.

The latter can be found in my Safeguard Recitals and Daily Chanting book elsewhere on this website.
