Itivuttaka 98

Dānasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Dvemāni, bhikkhave, dānāni—āmisadānañca dhammadānañca. Etadaggaṃ, bhikkhave, imesaṃ dvinnaṃ dānānaṃ yadidaṃ—dhammadānaṃ.

Dveme, bhikkhave, saṃvibhāgā—āmisa­saṃ­vibhāgo ca dhamma­saṃ­vibhāgo ca. Etadaggaṃ, bhikkhave, imesaṃ dvinnaṃ saṃvibhāgānaṃ yadidaṃ—dhamma­saṃ­vibhāgo.

Dveme, bhikkhave, anuggahā—āmisānuggaho ca dhammānuggaho ca. Etadaggaṃ, bhikkhave, imesaṃ dvinnaṃ anuggahānaṃ yadidaṃ—dhammānuggaho”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Yamāhu dānaṃ paramaṃ anuttaraṃ,
Yaṃ saṃvibhāgaṃ bhagavā avaṇṇayi;
Aggamhi khettamhi pasannacitto,
Viññū pajānaṃ ko na yajetha kāle.

Ye ceva bhāsanti suṇanti cūbhayaṃ,
Pasannacittā sugatassa sāsane;
Tesaṃ so attho paramo visujjhati,
Ye appamattā sugatassa sāsane”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Navamaṃ.
