Thus did I hear
Once the Buddha at Shravasti dwelt
In the Jeta Anathapindika garden
Together with a multitude of friars
One thousand two hundred and fifty
Who were arhats every one
As was recognised by all.
Shariputra the elder, Great Maudgalyayana, Maha-kashyapa,
Nanda, Ananda, Rahula,
Gavampati, Pindola Bhara-dvaja,
Kalodayin, Maha-kapphina, Vakkula, Aniruddha,
and many other disciples
each similarly great.
And, in addition, many bodhisattva mahasattvas...
Manjushri, prince of the Dharma, Ajita, Ganda-hastin,
Together with all such as these
Even unto Shakra the king of devas
With a vast assembly of celestials
