Editor's Preface

This work gives a selection of verses that are recited when worshipping the Lord Buddha, and a collection of discourses that are popularly used as Safeguards. Part of the chants found in this book are meant to be made everyday, and part rotate on a weekly basis. The system for the chanting is as follows: First there is Recollection of the Three Treasures, this if followed by Påjà (which will depend on what is being offered). Then the Pirit section begins with the Recollections and Reflections. All of this is chanted everyday.

Then the chants that are recited on the particular days begin. Normally where this book is in use Day 1 = Monday; Day 2 = Tuesday; and so on. If this system is adhered to then everybody will be chanting the same pieces on the same day. To go to the correct day click on the appropriate hyperlink at the end of the Reflections. At the end of the special chants for the day, there is the Conclusion, again you can access the appropriate conclusion by using the hyperlinks.
