Undoubtedly the best known collection of Buddhist texts in Sri Lanka is the Catubhanavarapali, the Text of the Four Recitals. The Great Safeguard, or Mahaparittam (Maha Pirith Potha) opens the recital and is regarded as being particularly auspicious in bringing safety, peace, and well-being. These texts play a central role in the life of Sri Lankan Buddhism and are also popular in other Theravada Buddhist countries. This book has been prepared in order to provide a reliable and complete text and line-by-line translation of the Catubhanavarapali.
