[245. Kuṭidhūpaka1]

I was a watchman at the hut
of the Blessed One, Siddhattha.
Now and again I perfumed [it],
[feeling well-] pleased by [my] own hands. (1) [2478]

In the ninety-four aeons since
I did that [good] karma back then,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
the fruit of worshipping Buddha. (2) [2479]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (3) [2480]

Thus indeed Venerable Kuṭidhūpaka Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Kuṭidhūpaka Thera is finished.
