The explanations of Metta Sutta and Khandha Paritta here are translated extracts from the Burmese book ‘Pa-Yeik Nithaya Thit’ (New Translations of the Protective Verses) written by the late Venerable Sayadaw Ashin Vasetthabhivamsa, who was more popularly known in Myanmar as Venerable Thabyekan Sayadaw. The book was published in the 1960s, being an explanation of eleven parittas (protective verses) – including Mangala Sutta and Ratana Sutta – based on related Pali texts and commentaries. Both the Metta Sutta and Khandha Paritta explanations here are translated by Venerable Candima (and some parts by Venerable Revata) of Pa Auk Tawya Forest Monastery, Myanmar.
