Sutta 31

Annadayaka Sansedaja Suttam

The Sweat-born Food Giver

[31.1] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Savatthi
at the Jeta Grove in Anathapindika's Park.

Then a certain brother came to the Exalted One,
and saluting him
sat down at one side.

So seated
that brother thus addressed the Exalted One:

"What is the reason, lord,
what is the cause
why a certain one,
when body breaks up after death
is reborn in the company of the sweat-born nagas?"

"Herein, brother, a certain one is
a double-dealer in act,
a double-dealer in word
a double-dealer in thought.

Such a one gives an offering of food.

He hears it said:

"The sweat-born nagas are long-lived,
fair to see
and have much happiness."

Then he thinks:

"0 that when body breaks up after death
I might be born in the company
of the sweat-born nagas!"

When body breaks up after death
he is born in the company
of the sweat-born nagas.

This is the reason, brother,
