Dhajagga stands for Banner / “Ta Gun”
- 7th Sutta in Paritta Pali (Protective Verses)
- Exhortation from Cakka (“Thakyar Min”) to his soldiers preparing for the battle with the Asuras:
“If you have fear or trepidation, try to catch the sight of my banner (if that’s possible) or that of the other Deva-Kings: Pajapati, Varuna, and Isana.
For when you have caught sight of the banners, whatever fear, or trepidation there is will disappear.”
- Buddha said,
“Because of the Lobha, Dosa, and Moha in the Deva-Kings, fear or trepidation may not disappear.
So, monks, if you feel fear and trepidation in the wilderness, … or an empty building, you should recollect the following:
Nine qualities of the Buddha
Six qualities of the Dhamma
Nine qualities of the Sangha
