Therīgāthā 4.1
The Verses of Arahant Nun Bhaddā Kāpilānī (63-66)

63. The Great Arahant Kassapa is the son, the heir, of the Buddha. With a well-concentrated mind, he sees the past lives of beings and sees heaven and hell with his divine eye.

64. Having attained the destruction of rebirth, he has become a liberated one. Since he achieved the Triple Knowledge, he is a true Brāhmin.

65. Bhaddā Kāpilānī is same as the Great Arahant Kassapa. She also has achieved the Triple Knowledge. Having defeated Māra and his army, she now bears her final body.

66. We were both ordained having realized the disadvantages of cycle of rebirths. We were well tamed and liberated. We have become cool and quenched.

These verses were said by Arahant Nun Bhaddā Kāpilānī.
