Stanzas of the victorious Auspices
(Jayamangala-gatha)


[Translation into English by Lionel Lokuliyana, The Great Book of Protections (Maha Pirit Pota), 
Published for Free Distribution by Mrs. H. M. Gunasekera Trust, pp.XLi-XLiii]


1. With a thousand arms and created weapons that
                (Elephant) Girimekhala with Mara, risen with fierceness
                together with his army,
    Through righteous means, such as generosity, the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

2. More than (even) Mara contending all night through,
              Indeed, the fierce and obdurate yakkha alavaka,
    Through forbearance, the well trained method, the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

3. Nalagiri the great elephant fully drunk,
    Like a circle of jungle-fire, that one, terrible like a thunderbolt,
    Through means of sprinkling the water of loving kindness,
                 the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

4. Holding up (his) sword with lifted hand that very fierce,
    That Angulimala running the distance of three leagues,
    Through psychic power with conditioned mind, the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

5. Forming (i.e. enlarging) her belly with firewood like unto
                  a pregnant woman
    The corrupt words of Cinca in the midst of people,
    Through quiet means with calmness, the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

6. Giving up truth, that Saccaka, hankering after
               arguments as though like a banner
    Fixing his mind on arguments fully blinded (to truth)
    Shining with the lamp of wisdom, the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

7. The naga Nandopananda very wise and of great psychic power
    Causing to be tamed by His son the elder who is like a naga,
    Through the method of psychic power and advice, the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

8. With his hand much bitten by the naga namely wrong views,
    The brahma named Baka of clear sheen and psychic power,
    Through the method of the medicine of knowledge,
                  the Lord of Sages won.
    Through that power may there be victorious auspices to you.

9. And these eight Buddha stanzas of victorious auspices,
    He who recites daily and remembers without sloth,
    Giving up various (troubles) and dangers,
    That wise man would attain the happiness of release.
