While residing in the Jetavana Monastery in Savatthi, the Buddha delivered a sermon to King Pasendi and people who questioned the Buddha about the merit derived from making a Buddha image. The person who had the ardent religious faith in the Teachings of the Buddha, made new Buddha statues and restored or repaired the damaged Buddha statues would obtain great merit.
Folio 16 on the recto side: In BE 2513, a kot set year, on the fourteenth day of the waxing moon of the tenth [lunar] month, a Wednesday, at 2:00 o’clock, the writing of this manuscript was finished. Sathu Phò Da from Müang Sai had the religious faith to sponsor the making of this manuscript entitled Sòng Phutthahup to support the Teachings of Gotama Buddha to last until the end of 5 thousand years. May all my wishes and desires be fulfilled. Nibbānaṃ paramaṃ sukhaṃ (Nirvana is the greatest bliss).
