The writing [of this manuscript] was finished at the time of the morning drum (between 9.00 – 10.30 o’clock). Huanai (aunt) Khao had the ardent religious faith to sponsor the making of fascicle 2 of [this manuscript entitled] Sutmon (Chanting) to support the Teachings of the Buddha. May all my wishes come true. Nibbāna paccayo hotu no dhuvaṃ (May this be a condition for us to reach Nirvāna, permanence).
