When Vipassi [Buddha] was born,
there was a vast effulgence [there].
The earth itself quaked [in response],
[as did its] oceans and mountains. (1) 
They interpreted the omens:
“A Buddha is born2 in the world,
the Top of all living beings
who will lift up [all] the people.” (2) 
Having heard [news] of the omens,
I performed pūjā for the birth.
There is no pūjā quite like the
pūjā that is done for the birth. (3) 
Having brought [my] own heart pleasure,
restraining3 [myself] wholesomely,
after doing that birth-pūjā
I passed away [right] on the spot. (4) 
In whichever womb I’m reborn,
[whether] it’s human or divine,
I surpass all [other] creatures:
that is the fruit of birth-pūjā. (5) 
The relics [now] look after me,
through the power of my [own] heart.
[Others] cannot disturb me [now]:
that is the fruit of birth-pūjā. (6) 
In the ninety-one aeons since
I performed that pūjā back then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that is the fruit of birth-pūjā. (7) 
In the thirtieth aeon ago,
four and thirty lords of people,
[all] named Supāricchariya,4
were wheel-turning kings with great strength. (8) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (9) 
Thus indeed Venerable Jātipūjaka Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Jātipūjaka Thera is finished.
Saraṇ, Āsana, Pupphika,
Magg’, Upaṭṭhāna, Jātina
ninety uttered verses are
counted clearly [in this part].
