[225. Avyādhika1]

I gave a heated room2 [back then]
to Vipassi, the Blessed One,
and a residence for the ill
which was furnished with hot water. (1) [2396]

As a result of that good deed,
my own state of being is good.3
I have come to know no illness:
that is the fruit of good karma.4 (2) [2397]

In the ninety-one aeons since
I donated that heated room,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that’s the fruit of a heated room. (3) [2398]

In the seventh aeon ago
there was one Aparājita,5
a wheel-turning king with great strength,
possessor of the seven gems. (4) [2399]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (5) [2400]

Thus indeed Venerable Avyādhika Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Avyādhika Thera is finished.
