[230. Ekavandiya1]

Cheerful, with pleasure in [my] heart,
I worshipped the Best of Buddhas,
Vessabhu, Victorious One,
the Bull, the Excellent, Hero. (1) [2420]

In the thirty-one aeons since
I did that [good] karma back then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that is the fruit of worshipping. (2) [2421]

In the twenty-fourth aeon [hence]
[lived one] named Vigatānanda,2
a wheel-turning king with great strength,
possessor of the seven gems. (3) [2422]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) [2423]

Thus indeed Venerable Ekavandiya Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Ekavandiya Thera is finished.
