Stanzas of Victory and Blessing

  1. Creating thousand hands, with weapons
    armed was Mara seated on the
    trumpeting, ferocious elephant Girimekhala.
    Him, together with his army, did the
    Lord of Sages subdue by means of generosity and other virtues. By its grace may joyous victory be thine.

  2. More violent than Mara were the
    indocile, obstinate demon Alavaka, who
    battled with the Buddha throughout the
    whole night. Him, did the Lord of Sages
    subdue by means of His patience and
    self-control. By its grace may joyous
    victory be thine.

  3. Nalagiri, the mighty elephant, highly
    intoxicated was raging like a forest-fire
    and was terrible as thunder-bolt.
    Sprinkling the waters of loving-kindness,
    this ferocious Beast, did the Lord of
    Sages subdue. By its grace may joyous
    victory be thine.

  4. With uplifted sword, for a distance of
    three leagues, did wicked Angulimala
    run. The Lord of Sages subdued him by
    His psychic powers. By its grace may
    joyous victory be thine.

  5. Her belly bound with faggots, to simulate
    the bigness of pregnancy, Cinca, with
    harsh words made foul accusation in the
    midst of an assemblage. Her, did the
    Lord of Sages subdue by His serene and
    peaceful bearing. By its grace may
    Joyous victory be thine.

  6. Haughty Saccaka, who ignored truth, was
    like abanner in controversy, and his
    vision was blinded by his own
    disputation. Lighting the lamp of
    wisdom, Him did the Lord of Sages
    subdue. By its grace may Joyous victory
    be thine.

  7. The wise and powerful serpent
    Nandopananda, the Noble Sage caused
    to be subdued by the psychic power of
    his disciple son (Thero Moggallana). By
    its grace may joyous victory be thine.

  8. The pure, radiant, majestic Brahma,
    named Baka, whose hand was grievously
    bitten by the snake of tenacious heresies,
    the Lord of Sages cure with His
    medicine of wisdom. By its grace may
    joyous victory be thine.

  9. The wise one, who daily recites and
    earnestly remembers these eight verses
    of joyous victory of the Budhha, will get
    rid of various misfortunes and gain the
    bliss of Nibbana.
