[174. Udapānadāyaka1]

For Vipassi, the Blessed One
I constructed a [water] well.
Having given alms-food [to him]
I dedicated [the well] then. (1) [2121]

In the ninety-one aeons since
I did that [good] karma back then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that is the fruit of [giving] wells. (2) [2122]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (3) [2123]

Thus indeed Venerable Udapānadāyaka Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Udapānadāyaka Thera is finished.
