On a rough spot on the highway,
I caused a bridge to be fashioned
for the sake of the world’s crossing,
[feeling well-]pleased by [my] own hands. (1) 
In the ninety-one aeons since
that bridge got constructed by me,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that’s the fruit of giving a bridge. (2) 
In the fifty-fifth aeon hence
there was one [man], Samogadha,2
a wheel-turning king with great strength,
possessor of the seven gems. (3) 
The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) 
Thus indeed Venerable Taraṇiya Thera spoke these verses.
The legend of Taraṇiya Thera is finished.
Sovaṇṇa and Tilamuṭṭhi,
CChaṅkot’,3 Abbhañjam, Añjali,
Potthaka, CChitaka, Māla,
when the verses are counted by
wise people there are forty-two.
