When Siddhattha, the Blessed One,
the Bull Among Men passed away,2
for all time I smeared oil upon
the railing at his Bodhi [tree]. (1) 
In the ninety-four aeons since
I smeared oil [on the railing] then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that is the fruit of smearing [oil]. (2) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances;
six special knowledges mastered:
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) 
Thus indeed Venerable Telamakkhiya Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Telamakkhiya Thera is finished.
