Translation

a1... where was your love for me?
a1+... (said?) this...
a2... says to the goddess of the house:
a2+Look...
a3... what (the Buddha) said in a Sūtra: In the asitavāṅk-tune:
a3+Out of love...
a4... faints... The consciousness disappears,
a4+the mind becomes worn out...
a5... says:
a5+She does not die separately (?)..., because Buddha the teacher...
a6... the word of... is different.
a6+Thus, I know... certainly...
b1... the goddess says:
b1+Sundarī does good in becoming a nun...
b2In the ?-twaṃ-tune:
b2+The homes... by Nanda... like divine...
b3... like... they so quickly no longer shine.
b3+This way, (she?) sees... the earth...
b4... where Nanda was letting go of love for Sundarī.
b5... the four directions were filled by me with with their suffering.
b5+Flower... was good.
b6Now her's/his is golden (?)

Other

b4... wo sich Nanda mit Sundarī der Liebe hinzugeben pflegte. (Schmidt 1974: 319)
