A Treasure

“And what is the treasure of generosity? There is the case of a disciple of the noble ones, his awareness cleansed of the stain of stinginess, living at home, freely generous, openhanded, delighting in being magnanimous, responsive to requests, delighting in the distribution of alms. This is called the treasure of generosity.”

— AN 7.6

A Requisite for Spiritual Progress

“Without abandoning these five qualities, one is incapable of entering & remaining in the first jhana [Si. dyana]... the second jhana... the third jhana... the fourth jhana; incapable of realizing the fruit of stream-entry [sotapatti]... the fruit of once-returning [sakadagami]... the fruit of non-returning [anagami]... arahantship. Which five? Stinginess as to one's monastery [lodgings], stinginess as to one's family [of supporters], stinginess as to one's gains, stinginess as to one's status, and ingratitude.”
