I lived in a lotus forest
eating lotus flowers [back then].
I saw Phussa, the Sambuddha,
Bearing the Thirty-two Great Marks.2 (1) 
Picking up a lotus flower
I tossed it up into the air.
Having done this pleasing karma
I went forth into homelessness. (2) 
Having renounced, with self-control
over my body and [my] mind,
and refraining from bad speech-acts
I purified my livelihood. (3) 
In the ninety-two aeons since
I offered that flower [to him],
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that’s the fruit of Buddha-pūjā. (4) 
There were eighteen lords of the earth
[all] known as Padumābhāsa,3
and in the eighteenth aeon [hence]
there were forty-eight [such monarchs]. (5) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (6) 
Thus indeed Venerable Padumapupphiya Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Padumapupphiya Thera is finished.
two Raṃsisaññis, Phalada,
Saddasaññī and Sevaka,
Padumapupphī and verses
fifty-six have been detailed [here].
