While residing at Mount Ghijjhakuta in Rajagir, the Buddha visited Ananda Thera who was aged and suffering from illness. When Ananda reported the Buddha about the situation of his illness, which was still bad, the Buddha preached the Sarakarivijjha Sutta to him and advised him to remember and recite the Sutta. By chanting this Sutta regularly, the illness would be relieved. Previous Buddhas, such as the Buddha Vessabu, Kukkusanda, Kassapa, and others, also preached this Sutta for the benefits of the people.

In Culasakkarat (CS) 1217, a hap mao year, on the seventh waxing day of the eighth lunar month, a kot cai day, the first day of the week (Sunday). The writing [of this manuscript] was finished at the time of the morning drum (7:30–9:00 o’clock). Father Butdi and his wife had the most ardent religious faith to sponsor the making of this manuscript entitled Sarakarivijja Sutta to support the Teachings of the Buddha to last until the end of five thousand years. May the result of this merit support our parents and descendants. May all our wishes be fulfilled. May this be a condition to reach Nirvana constantly and certainly. [Nirvana] is the ultimate happiness.
