I was formerly a blacksmith
in the fine city Bandhumā.
I gave the gift of a needle
to Vipassi, the Sage so Great. (1) 
Due to such karma [my] knowledge
is [now] just like a top diamond.
I have no lust, I’m fully free;
I have attained arahantship.2 (2) 
With knowledge I learn everything
about all past existences
and present ones and future ones:
that is the fruit of needle-gifts. (3) 
In the ninety-first aeon thence
lived seven Vajirasamas,3
wheel-turning kings with great power,
possessors of the seven gems. (4) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (5) 
Thus indeed Venerable Succhidāyaka Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Succhidāyaka Thera is finished.
