Right when Well-Gone Atthadassi
had achieved final nirvana,
I was born in a spirit’s2 womb;
I possessed [great] glory back then. (1) 
“It’s a bad attainment for me,
a bad dawn, a bad arising,
that I should find such opulence
when the Eyeful One’s passed away.”3 (2) 
Discerning what I was thinking,
the follower named Sāgara4
with a wish for my upliftment,
[then] came into my presence [there]: (3) 
“Why are you grieving? Do not fear!
o [you] knower of the Teaching,
by the Buddha have been given
the seeds of everyone’s success. (4) 
When the heart’s pleasure is the same
there is the same priceless merit.
Therefore having built a stupa,
worship the Victor’s relics [there].” (6) 
After hearing Sāgara’s words,
I [then] built a Buddha-stupa.
For five years I attended to
that Sage’s ultimate stupa. (7) 
Due to that deed for the Biped-Lord,
the World’s Best One, the Bull of Men,
having enjoyed [great] happiness,
I attained [my] arahantship. (8) 
In the seventh aeon ago
there were four [named] Bhūripañña,7
wheel-turning kings with great power,
possessors of the seven gems. (9) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (10) 
Thus indeed Venerable Paccchchupaṭṭhānasaññaka Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Paccchchupaṭṭhānasaññaka Thera is finished.
