Mahaddhana Sutta

1. Mahaddhana Sutta.– A devatā approaches the Blessed One at Sāvatthi and says in verse that those of great wealth, even those who are rulers of the country, vie with one another, and are envious. He than asks who among them has abandoned craving and dwells without envy. The Buddha replies that those who have gone forth, leaving behind loved ones and cattle, who have abandoned lust and anger, having destroyed ignorance and the corruptions, the Arahants dwell without envy.  S.i15.

2. Paṭhama Mahaddhana Sutta.– Endowed with four things a monk is prosperous, of great wealth, with much property. What four? Here, monks, a monk has firm confidence in the Buddha … in the Dhamma … in the Saṅgha … has unbroken morality. S.v.402.

3. Dutiya Mahaddhana Sutta.– As above, and also of great fame. S.v.402.
