The Book of Protection

The Book of Protection by Piyadassi Thera was published by the Buddhist Publication Society in Sri Lanke in 1999. The book was originally meant as a handbook for the newly ordained Buddhist novices. The idea was that those novices who are not capable of studying the large portions of the ‘Discourse Collection’ (sutta pitaka) should at least be conversant with the Book of Protection.
