[320. Kumudamāliya1]

Taking a white lotus bloom I
laid it [before] the Best Buddha,
Sacrificial Recipient,
the Bull, Excellent One, Hero,
Victorious One, the Great Sage,
Vipassi [Buddha], Great Hero,
like a lion which is well-born. (1-2) [2821-2822]

In the ninety-one aeons since
I did pūjā [with] that flower,
I’ve come to know no bad rebirth:
that’s the fruit of Buddha-pūjā. (3) [2823]

The four analytical modes,
and these eight deliverances,
six special knowledges mastered,
[I have] done what the Buddha taught! (4) [2824]

Thus indeed Venerable Kumudamāliya Thera spoke these verses.

The legend of Kumudamāliya Thera is finished.

The Summary:

Arakkhada, Bhojanada,
Gatasaññi and Padumika,
Pupphâsani, Santhavaka,
