On a Himalayan mountain
flows the great Indus, beautiful.
There I saw the Passionless One,
the Radiant One,2 Beautiful. (1) 
Amazed after [I] had seen him,
Engaged in the Ultimate Calm,
I gave [some] bulbous roots to him,
[feeling well-]pleased by [my] own hands. (2) 
In the thirty-one aeons since
I gave those bulbous roots back then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that’s the fruit of bulbous-root-gifts. (3) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered:
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) 
Thus indeed Venerable Āluvadāyaka Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Āluvadāyaka Thera is finished.
