Sutta 41

Annadayaka Opapatika Suttam

The Born without Parents Food Giver

[41.1] 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 nagas born without parents?"

"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 nagas born without parents 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 nagas born without parents!"

When body breaks up after death
he is born in the company
of the nagas born without parents.

This is the reason, brother,
this is the cause
why a certain one,
when body breaks up after death
is reborn in the company of the sweat-born nagas."
