Maccharī Sutta

1. Macchari Sutta.– A group of Satullapakāyikā devā visit the Buddha at Jetavana and four of them speak, each one verse, before him on the evils of avarice and the blessings of generosity. The Buddha utters a verse to the effect that gifts given should be well gotten. S.i.18 f.

2. Macchari Sutta.– A deva visits the Buddha and asks him questions as to what kind of person is a miser and what awaits the generous man. The Buddha replies. S.i.34.

3. Maccharī Sutta.- To Anuruddha. A woman who is faithless, shameless, stingy, and of weak wisdom is reborn in hell on the break-up of the body after death. S.iv.241.

4. Maccharinī Sutta.– The same as (5) except that nun (bhikkhuṇī) is substituted for “monk.” A.iii.139.

5. Paṭhama Macchariya Sutta.– A monk who grudges sharing his lodging, the families who provide him with food, the gifts he receives, his praise, and who destroys gifts offered in faith (saddhādeyyaṃ vinipāteti) — such a monk is destined to hell. A.iii.266.

6. Dutiya Macchariya Sutta.– The same as the above except that the fifth quality is given as stinginess with regard to Dhamma. A.iii.266 f.

7. Macchariya Sutta.– On the five disadvantages of staying too long in one place — one grudges sharing one’s lodging (āvāsamaccharī), the families who provide alms (kulamaccharī), one’s gains (lābhamaccharī), fame (vaṇṇamaccharī), or the Dhamma (dhammamaccharī). A.iii.258.

8. Macchariya Sutta.– There are these seven fetters: fawning (anunaya-saṃyojana), aversion (paṭigha°), wrong-view (diṭṭhi­­­°), doubt (vicikkicha°), conceit (māna°), envy (issā°), and meanness (maccariya°). A.iv.8.

9. Macchariya Sutta.– The five forms of meanness: in sharing lodgings (āvāsamacchariyaṃ), the support of a family (kula°), gains (lābha°), fame (vaṇṇa°), and Dhamma (dhamma°) must be abandoned. Then the four foundations of mindfulness much be developed. (Book of Nines, A.iv.459).
