Paritta Suttas — Protection Discourses

Recited by Mingun Sayādaw U Vicittasāra

The following is the full Pāḷi text as recited in Burma, with the introductory verses to invite the deities to attend the Paritta Ceremony and to protect the participants. The Mangala Sutta is preceded by the introduction to the discourse beginning “Evaṃ me sutaṃ — Thus have I heard” which is the response given by Venerable Ānanda when questioned by Venerable Mahākassapa at the First Buddhist Council, three months after the demise of the Buddha. In the Burmese edition, most of the Parittas are preceded by a few introductory verses. They are not numbered here to indicate that they are not part of the actual Pāḷi text.
