Bhojana Suttaṃ

The Food Giver

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][than][olds][bodh] I HEAR TELL:

One time the Lucky man addressed the beggars, saying:

"Beggars!

And "Bhagava!" the beggars responded.

Then the Lucky Man said:

"There are these five gifts given by the food giver.

What five?

Life,
beauty,
ease,
energy
and strength of wits.

But, Beggars, giving such as such as this,
he shares in five benefits.

What five?

Life,
beauty,
ease,
energy
and strength of wits.

Both here and in the hereafter.
