[154. Kakkārupūjaka1]

Having been the son of a god,
I worshipped2 Sikhi, the Leader.
Taking a kakkāru flower
I offered [it] to the Buddha. (1) [2013]

In the thirty-one aeons since
I offered that flower [to him],
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that’s the fruit of Buddha-pūjā. (2) [2014]

And in the ninth aeon ago
I was the king, Sattuttama,3
a wheel-turner with great power,
possessor of the seven gems. (3) [2015]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) [2016]

Thus indeed Venerable Kakkārupūjaka Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Kakkārupūjaka Thera is finished.
