Evam se udahu anuttaranani,
Araha nayputte bhagavam,
vesalie viyahie tti bemi. (745)
Thus preached the Vaisalika
Bhagavan Mahavira, of the Jnata clan, endowed with supreme knowledge and
supreme vision this is what I speak about. (745)
Nahi nuna pura anussuyam,
aduva tam taha no samutthiyam.
Munina samai ahiyam, naenam
One might not have heard
about that or one might not have acted in accordance with that, but
certainly virtues like equanimity etc. have been preached by the omniscient
sage Jnataputra (=Mahavira). (746)
Attanam jo janai jo ya
logam, jo agatim janai nagatim ca.
Jo sasayam jana asasayam ca,
jatim maranam ca cayanovavatam.
Aho vi sattana vi thahunam
ca, jo asavam janati samvaram ca.
Dukkham ca jo janai nijjaram
ca, so bhasiumarihati kiriyavadam. (747 & 748)
One who knows about a soul,
the world, the ensuing births, cessation of the ensuing births, the things,

the tour and higher region, the karmic inflow. The stay of the stoppage
karmic inflow, misery, the purging of karmas only he deserves to preach the
dectrine of right action. (747 & 748)
Gahido suggaimaggo, naham
maranassa bihemi. (749)
I have already attained the
noble verbal preaching of Jinas which was not attained earlier and is of the
form of nectar; I have taken up the pathe leading to a happy future birth-so
that I may no more be afraid of death. (749)
