Anāgatavaṃsa

A poem on the story of Metteyya, the future Buddha, by an elder named Kassapa (Gv.61), an inhabitant of the Coḷa country (Svd.v.1204).

The poem is probably based on an older work (P.L.C.,160 f).

A Subcommentary (ṭīkā) exists, written by an Upatissa, possibly the author of the Mahābodhivaṃsa.

The introductory verses of the poem state that the story was taught by the Buddha at Sāriputta’s request. For the text see J.P.T.S.,1886, pp.32 ff.
