Dear members who love Pali,

[Presented by Dr.Han Tun @ SariputtaDhamma/JTN]


I will present Macchariya Suttas (Stinginess), translated by Ven Thanissaro
Bhikkhu.

AN 5.254: Macchariya Sutta: Stinginess (1)
"Monks, there are these five forms of stinginess. 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 stinginess as
to the Dhamma. These are the five forms of stinginess. And the meanest of these
five is this: stinginess as to the Dhamma."

254. "Pa~ncimaani , bhikkhave, macchariyaani. Katamaani pa~nca?
Aavaasamacchariya.m, kulamacchariya.m, laabhamacchariya.m, va.n.namacchariya.m,
dhammamacchariya.m. Imaani kho, bhikkhave, pa~nca macchariyaani. Imesa.m kho,
bhikkhave, pa~ncanna.m macchariyaana.m eta.m pa.tiku.t.tha.m, yadida.m
dhammamacchariya"nti.

AN 5.255: Macchariya Sutta: Stinginess (2)
"With the abandoning and eradication of the five forms of stinginess, the holy
life is fulfilled. Which five? "With the abandoning and eradication of
stinginess as to one's monastery [lodgings], the holy life is fulfilled. With
the abandoning and eradication of stinginess as to one's family [of supporters]
... stinginess as to one's gains ... stinginess as to one's status ...
stinginess as to the Dhamma, the holy life is fulfilled. "With the abandoning
and eradication of these five forms of stinginess, the holy life is fulfilled."

255. "Pa~ncanna.m , bhikkhave, macchariyaana.m pahaanaaya samucchedaaya
brahmacariya.m vussati. Katamesa.m pa~ncanna.m? Aavaasamacchariyassa pahaanaaya
samucchedaaya brahmacariya.m vussati; kulamacchariyassa [pe] laabhamacchariyassa
[pe] va.n.namacchariyassa [pe] dhammamacchariyassa pahaanaaya samucchedaaya
brahmacariya.m vussati. Imesa.m kho, bhikkhave, pa~ncanna.m macchariyaana.m
pahaanaaya samucchedaaya brahmacariya.m vussatii"ti.
