Of these paritta, one of the best known is the Ratana Sutta Sn 2. This precious jewel is the Buddha. By this asseveration of the truth may there be happiness. Examples of this type of paritta verse can be seen in the Candima Sutta SN 2. In these two scriptures, the deities Canda and Surya protect themselves from the attack of the eclipse deity Rahu by reciting short verses praising the Buddha and pleading for his protection: "O Buddha, the Hero, thou art wholly free from all evil.
