Theragāthā Verses of the Senior Monks Chapter of the Fours 4.9. Candana Covered with gold, Surrounded by all her maids, With my son upon her hip, My wife came up to me. I saw her coming, The mother of my son, Adorned with jewellery and all dressed up, Like a snare of death laid down.

I’ve attained the three knowledges, And fulfilled the Buddha’s instructions.
