In Tivarā, lovely city,
I was a basket-maker2 then.
The multitude took pleasure there
in Siddhattha, Lamp of the World. (1) 
For the sake of worshipping3 the
World’s Lord, [one] is seeking a mat.
[Being asked] I gave a mat to
[those] conducting Buddha-pūjā. (2) 
In the ninety-four aeons since
I did that [good] karma back then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that is the fruit of mat-[giving]. (3) 
In the seventy-seventh aeon
there was a king, Jutindhara,4
a wheel-turning king with great strength,
possessor 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 Kilañjadāyaka Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Kilañjadāyaka Thera is finished.
