Kayanakhon or Kāyanagara (the body city) describes our body as a city and our mind as its king called Cittarat or Citta Raja who governs it, and diseases as the city’s enemies. The body city has an area of only one wa (two metres) of length and one palm span (twenty-five centimetres). It has four layers of fences including the skin, flesh, tendons and bones; four fortresses including hair, fur, nails and teeth; nine doors including mouth, butt hole, pee tube, both nostrils, and both auditory canals; and five sensitive material qualities including eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and body. King Cittarat has two queens, Queen Avijja (ignorance) and Queen Tanha (craving) and four ministers, Lobha (greed), Dosa (hatred), Kodha (anger), and Moha (delusion).
Folio 43 on the recto side: In Cunlasakkarat 1209, a moeng mot year, on the second waning day of the twelfth [lunar] month, the third day of the week (Tuesday), a poek san day, the writing [of this manuscript] was finished at the time of the morning drum (between 7.30–9.00 o’clock). Pho Bak (the father of Mr.) Suvandi and his wife had the ardent religious faith to sponsor the making of [this manuscript entitled] Kayanakhon to support the Teachings of the Buddha to last until the end of 5000 years. Nibbānaṃ paramaṃ sukkhaṃ niccaṃ dhuvaṃ dhuvaṃ (Nirvāna is the greatest bliss, continuously and forever).
