Etapi buddhajayamangala atthagatha

Yo vacako dinadine sarate matandi

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

Inilah 8 syair berkah kejayaan sang Buddha

Barangsiapa yang mengucapkan dan merenungkannya dari hari ke hari

Dan setelah mengatasi beraneka ragam halangan

Orang bijaksana ini akan mencapai kebebasan dan kebahagiaan.
