Itivuttaka 26

Dānasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ:

“Evañce, bhikkhave, sattā jāneyyuṃ dāna­saṃ­vibhā­gassa vipākaṃ yathāhaṃ jānāmi, na adatvā bhuñjeyyuṃ, na ca nesaṃ maccheramalaṃ cittaṃ pariyādāya tiṭṭheyya. Yopi nesaṃ assa carimo ālopo carimaṃ kabaḷaṃ, tatopi na asaṃvibhajitvā bhuñjeyyuṃ, sace nesaṃ paṭiggāhakā assu. Yasmā ca kho, bhikkhave, sattā na evaṃ jānanti dāna­saṃ­vibhā­gassa vipākaṃ yathāhaṃ jānāmi, tasmā adatvā bhuñjanti, mac­chera­malañca nesaṃ cittaṃ pariyādāya tiṭṭhatī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Evañce sattā jāneyyuṃ,
yathāvuttaṃ mahesinā;
Vipākaṃ saṃvibhāgassa,
yathā hoti mahapphalaṃ.

Vineyya maccheramalaṃ,
vippasannena cetasā;
Dajjuṃ kālena ariyesu,
yattha dinnaṃ mahapphalaṃ.

Annañca datvā bahuno,
dakkhiṇeyyesu dakkhiṇaṃ;
Ito cutā manussattā,
saggaṃ gacchanti dāyakā.

Te ca saggagatā tattha,
modanti kāmakāmino;
Vipākaṃ saṃvibhāgassa,
anubhonti amaccharā”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Chaṭṭhaṃ.
