Sāvitti

A hymn, mentioned as chief of the Vedas (chandato mukhaṃ) (SN.vs.568). It consists of three lines of twenty-four letters (tipadaṃ catuvīsakkharaṃ) (SN.vs.457).

The Commentary (SNA.ii.403) explains that the latter refers to the Ariya Sāvitti, which consists of the formula “Buddhaṃ°, Dhammaṃ°, Sanghaṃ° saranaṃ gacchāmi.”
