A beautiful Pāli poem, of two hundred and seventy-four verses, on the subjection of sensuality, written in Ceylon, probably in the seventeenth century. A tika on the poem is ascribed to a monk of Pakudhanagara (Pegu). (Gv.65, 75; Bode, op. cit., 44, n.7).
The work is in two sections, the first describing the formation of the body, its foulness and its worthlessness, and the second dealing with the mind and the advantages of developing the same regardless of the body. There is a Sinhalese translation probably by the author himself. P.L.C.285.
