Of the wise one, free of delusion,
Of the broken pillar, the conquered conqueror,
Of the untroubled one with harmonious mind,
Of the one with mature virtue and excellent wisdom,
Of the one who sees past appearance and is stainless,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

[audio: English & Pāli]

Of the unconfused one, who is content,
Of the one who’s thrown up worldly pleasures and is grateful,
Of the one who’s done a Śramaṇa’s work while born a man,
Of the one who bears his last body, a true man,
Of the one incomparable and clear,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the one without doubt, who is skillful,
Of the discipliner, the great charioteer,
Of the unsurpassed one with beautiful teachings,
Of the confident one, the one of light,
Of the one who’s cut off conceit, the hero,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the leader of the herd, immeasurable,
Of the profound one, attained to wisdom,
Of the maker of safety, the keeper of lore,
Of the one righteous and restrained,
Of the one who’s overcome passion and is free,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the bull elephant who dwells alone,
Of the one who’s destroyed the fetters and is free,
Of the one who’s skilled in discussion, the sage,
Of the one with fallen banner, free from passion,
Of the one civlised and simple,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the greatest seer who is straight-forward,
Of the one with the Three Knowledges, attained to Brahma,
Of the cleansed one, the verse-maker,
Of the serene one, the finder of knowledge,
Of the king of gods, the capable one,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the noble one, the developed one,
Of the attainer and the explainer,
Of the composed one who has insight,
Of the one without bias for or against,
Of the imperturbable, the master,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the arisen one, the one with jhanas,
Of the one who follows none and is pure,
Of the one without attachment, the benevolent one,
Of the secluded one, attained to the peak,
Of the one who has crossed and helps others cross,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple,

Of the one of peace, abundant in wisdom,
Of the one of great wisdom, free of lust,
Of the one who’s come and gone, the Happy One,
Of the one without equal, the peerless one,
Of the intrepid one, the clever one,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

Of the one who’s cut down craving, the Buddha,
Of the one free of fumes, free of taints,
Of the one deserving of gifts, the titan,
Of the ultimate man, the ineffable one,
Of the great one, attained to glory’s peak,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.

From the Upali Sutta, Majjhima Nikaya 56
