[209. Ādhāradāyaka1]

A stool was donated by me
to Sikhi, Kinsman of the World.
[Then] I was2 the possessor of
all the land [in] this entire earth. (1) [2309]

My defilements are [all] burnt up,
every existence is canceled.
I [now] possess my last body
in the Buddha’s3 dispensation. (2) [2310]

In the twenty-seventh aeon
hence there existed four people
[all] named Samantaccharaṇa,4
wheel-turning monarchs with great strength. (3) [2311]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) [2312]

Thus indeed Venerable Ādhāradāyaka Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Ādhāradāyaka Thera is finished.
