Monks, after my passing away, if all the sons and daughters of good family and the
faithful, so long as they live, go to the four holy places, they should go and remember:
here at Lumbini the enlightened one was born; here at Bodhgaya he attained enlightenment;
here at Sarnath he turned twelve wheels of Dharma; and here at Kushinagar he entered
Monks, after my passing away there will be activities such as circumambulation of these
places and prostration to them.
Thus it should be told, for they who have faith in my deeds and awareness of their own
will travel to higher states.
After my passing away, the new monks who come and ask of the doctrine should be told of
these four places and advised that a pilgrimage to them will help purify their previously
accumulated negative karmas, even the five heinous actions.
