Translation

a1... close to ... the prince Sunetra has become ... . Then he says: in [the tune] A. :
a1+"... of the (pro)claiming spirit, [1a]
a2oh venerable one, listen to the word spoken by me concerning all the happinesses! [1b] The forest appears lovely [and] pleasant without equal. [1c]
a2+This is the place for the descent of [my] mother [and] my father, the lord.
a31. Rivers flow ... but on the meadow with the colour of emerald. [2a] With the ... tongues ... [2b]
a3+But the lotus pools with eyes of blue lotus [2c] show esteem for us
a4[and] call us to the descent. 2
a4+But the pools provided with night-lotus, with these teeth of white lotus [3a] laugh at the joyful rainshower [and] at the encouraging (sign)s. [3b]
a5Trees stand on the river-bank, having a pleasant odour, [the] divine [ones] [3c]
a5+[and] exhale [their] perfume [like] a lover [exhales] the love out of his body for his well-beloved."
a6[3d]
a6+The prince Sunetra having (finished) saying this close to the forest Kusumaghana, after that the cakravartin king Supriya having (touch)ed with the hand the drums [and] the wind instruments in the (wo)od with(out) ani(mals), ... they made [their] way of descent on the bank of the pool full of blue water lilies.
b1+Here now the cakravartin king Supriya, having directed [his] gaze onto the assembly, (says):
b2in [the tune V.] : “This forest is without sound [and] fitting only for the prudent ones. [1a]
b2+Keep away from arrogance,
b3control [your] spirit [and] the senses! [1b] These places of the good ones are not to be found in any way empty. [1c]
b3+Certainly the beasts in this place [are] tamed by prudence.
b4[1d] The body [which is] the thirst of the whole world [= being unhappy], may I obtain [it] provided with happiness. [2a] With an untamed spirit [it is] difficult to obtain happiness. [2b]
b4+The prudent ones who have been controlled by body, speech and spirit, [2c] these ones rejoice in this place 'like the bee [Skt. Silimukha-] among the flowers.
b53
b5+Here the cakravartin king Supriya in the company of thousand sons, and of those [who are] kings [and] ministers on the four continents ...
b6With a ... spirit, full of wish for the cakravartin king Supriya

Commentary

Philological commentary

n1The metre has 4x14 [7/7] syllables. The tune name is so far unattested and cannot be restored.
n2The metre has 4x14 [7/7] syllables.
n3Either the scribe forgot a stanza or wrote the wrong strophe number.
n4The reading yo śukecce is certain. But since there is no word ending in -yo that fits here and since śuketstse 'juicy' does not make sense as attribute of palsko, we assume sandhi, even though this is a prose passage.
