The text explains Sangayana or Saṅgīti (the first Buddhist Council) which started three months after the passing away of the Buddha and lasted for seven months to complete. The Council was organized at the Sattapanna Cave in Rajagaha, attended by 500 arahants and patroned by King Ajatasattu. The Venerable Maha Kassapa presided over the council. The Venerable Upali was chosen to answer the questions on the Vinaya and Venerable Ananda to recite all the Suttas (Discourses).
Folio 34 on the recto side: In BE 2510, a moeng mot year, on the eleventh day of the waxing moon of the twelfth [lunar] month, a Sunday, at the time of the morning drum (7:30–9:00), the writing of this manuscript was finished. Thit (Mr. ex-monk) Bunthan and his wife Sao (Miss) Sao from Ban Huaxiang, the sub-district of Vat That, Luang Prabang municipal, had the ardent religious faith to sponsor the making of this manuscript entitled Sangkhayana written in three fascicles to support the Teachings of the Buddha to last until the end of five thousand years. May both of us reach the three stages of happiness with the Nirvana as the ultimate goal. May this not be ignored as it is what we desire.
