This text, known as Ratanam?l? in P?li, is a poem comprised of 108 syllables giving homage to the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. The Buddha himself was said to have prescribed the recitation of syllables from this text as a means of protection. These syllables are memorized by Buddhists in the form of mantras and their graphical representation has produced a host of elaborate protective diagrams. This book provides the original Khmer and Pali texts, along with a French translation and commentary. It also includes a section showing the usage of these syllables in mantras and diagrams.
