Aṅgulimāla Suttaṃ - The Aṅgulimāla Discours

Parittaṃ yaṃ bhaṇantassa 
nisinnaṭṭhāna-dhovanaṃ
Udakampi vināseti
sabbameva parissayaṃ.


The water that washed the seat of him
who recited this paritta has put an end to all danger.
At that very moment
this paritta effected a safe delivery of the infant.




Sotthinā gabbhavuṭṭhānaṃ 
yañca sādheti taṅkhaṇe
Therass’ Aṅgulimālassa 
lokanāthena bhāsitaṃ
Kappaṭṭhāyiṃ mahātejaṃ 
parittaṃ taṃ bhaṇāmahe.


Now we shall recite that very efficacious paritta
uttered by the Protector of the world (the Buddha)
which holds good for an aeon.

Yatohaṃ bhagini ariyāya jātiyā jāto,
Nābhijānāmi sañciccapāṇaṃ jīvitā voropetā,
Tena saccena sotthi te hotu sotthi gabbhassa.

Sister, since I was born with the Ariyan birth, 
I have not knowingly and deliberately taken the life of any living being, 
by this truth may you be well and may your child be well.
