[287. Apadāniya1]

I praised the apadānas of
the Great Sages, the Well-Gone Ones,
and worshipped them, head on [their] feet,
[feeling well-]pleased by [my] own hands. (1) [2652]

In the ninety-two aeons since
I praised the apadāna [poems]
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that is the fruit of extolling. (2) [2653]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (3) [2654]

Thus indeed Venerable Apadāniya Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Apadāniya Thera is finished.
