Dhajaggasuttaṃ Verses for Protection

“Araññe rukkhamūle vā, suññāgāreva bhikkhavo;

Anussaretha sambuddhaṃ, bhayaṃ tumhāka no siyā.

“Whether gone to the forest, to the root of a tree or dwelling in an empty space,

You should remember the Sammasambuddha, and whatever fear you behold will pass away,

No ce buddhaṃ sareyyātha, lokajeṭṭhaṃ narāsabhaṃ;

Atha dhammaṃ sareyyātha, niyyānikaṃ sudesitaṃ.

If you do not recall the Buddha, the highest in the world, the foremost of men

Then you should remember the Dhamma, leading to salvation, so well explained,

No ce dhammaṃ sareyyātha, niyyānikaṃ sudesitaṃ;

Atha saṅghaṃ sareyyātha, puññakkhettaṃ anuttaraṃ

But if you don’t recall the Dhamma, leading to salvation, so well explained,

Then remember the Saṅgha, this endless field of merit,

Evaṃ buddhaṃ sarantānaṃ, dhammaṃ saṅghañca bhikkhavo;

Bhayaṃ vā chambhitattaṃ vā, lomahaṃso na hessatī”ti.

If in this manner you remember either the Buddha, the Dhamma or the Saṅgha, Bhikkhu,

Fear, stupefaction and your hair’s standing on end will no more be.”
