    Above suttta was translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
    When I heard that he was visiting SG I made my way to the temple where he held a dhamma talk.
    It was great to see the person who has translated a lot of suttas into English.

    Excellent thread here. And for those whom may find this useful to help oneself and others when encountering different types of situations.

    ============================================
    Source: Paritta Chanting - For Protection and Practice


    Chanting of and Listening to the Suttas


    Although the Parittas are for chanting in general, some of the Parittas are to be practised as well.

    Only the Ratana Sutta, Mora Sutta, Vatta Sutta, Atanatiya Sutta, Angulimala Sutta and Pubbanha Sutta are meant for chanting only; the others are for both chanting and practicing. And there are specific uses for the Parittas although generally they are meant for protection against dangers. The specific uses can be obtained from the introductory verses of each Sutta. (Sayadaw U. Silananda)



    Paritta Parikamma - for preparation and invitation to devas for the sharing of

    the Paritta chanting;

    Mangala Sutta - for blessings and prosperity;

    Ratana Sutta - for getting free from dangers caused by disease, evil spirits

    and famine;

    Metta Sutta - for suffusing all kinds of beings with loving-kindness;

    Khandha Sutta - for protection against snakes and other creatures;

    Mora Sutta - for protection against snares, imprisonment and for safety;

    Vatta Sutta - for protection against fire;

    Dhajagga Sutta - for protection against fear, trembling and horror;

    Atanatiya Sutta - for protection against evil spirits, and gaining health and

    happiness;

    Angulimala Sutta - for easy delivery for expectant mothers;

    Bojjhanga Sutta - for protection against and getting free from sickness and

    disease;

    Pubbanha Sutta - for protection against bad omens, etc., and gaining

    happiness.

    A recent dharma talk by Chao Khun Keng:

    Shifu is a Singaporean Chinese that ordained in the thai forest tradition more than 20 years ago.

    He learnt from quite a few kruba Ajarns from the Dhammayut thai forest tradition lineage with

    Luang Pu Jiak Cundo as his main teacher.

    below are some of the talks related to practice:
