(translation)

As invited by Namba, a person of refined manners, belonging to a respectable family, full of faith and replete with sterling virtues, to compose a treatise out of compassion for others, this book has been completed.

By this great merit may the modest monks, ho are purified by wisdom and who shine in discipline, remember till the end of the world the most famous Tumūlasoma Monastery, the abode of grain, for the acquisition of merit and for their happiness.

Thus ends the treatise called the Abhidhammattha Sangaha composed by the great teacher, Anuruddha.
