Dāna Sutta

1. Dāna Vagga.– The thirteenth chapter of the Duka Nipāta of the Aṅguttaranikāya. A.i.91 f.

2. Dāna Vagga.– The fourth chapter of the Aṭṭhaka Nipāta of the Aṅguttaranikāya. A.iv.236‑48.

1. Chaḷaṅgadāna Sutta.– Taught at Jetavana, regarding an offering founded by Veḷukaṇḍakāī-Nandamātā to monks, with Sāriputta and Mahā-Moggallāna at their head. Her offering, says the Buddha, is complete in six ways — three on the part of the giver and three on that of the recipients. The giver is glad at heart before making the gift, is satisfied while giving, and rejoices after the gift. The recipients are either free from lust, hatred and delusion, or are on the way to such freedom. The merit obtained from such a gift is infinite. A.iii.336 f.

2. Dāna Sutta.– Sāriputta, with the lay disciples of Campā, visits the Buddha at the Gaggarāpokkharaṇi and asks him why the same offerings have, in one case, no reward, in another, great reward. The Buddha explains in detail. A.iv.59 ff.

3. Dāna Sutta.– On the eight kinds of alms. A.iv.236.
