Verse 249. The Envious Are Not At Peace

People give as they have faith,
as they are bright with joyfulness.
Who’s troubled over gifts received,
the food and drink that others get,
neither in daytime nor by night
will come to a collected mind.

Verse 250. The Unenvious Are At Peace

But who has severed envy’s mind,
uprooted it, destroyed entire,
indeed in daytime and by night
will come to a collected mind.

Explanation: If someone were to utterly uproot and totally
eradicate this jealousy, and if it is absolutely destroyed, he will,
without any doubt, attain tranquillity day and night.

Explanation: The people give in terms of the faith they have
in the recipient. They give in terms of their pleasure. If one were
to be jealous when they receive, food and drink, he will never attain
tranquillity of mind day or night.

Dhammapada Verses 249 and 250
Tissadahara Vatthu

Dadati ve yathasaddham
yathapasadanam jano
tattha yo ca manku bhavati
paresam panabhojane
na so diva va rattim va
samadhimadhigacchati.

Yassa cetam samucchinnam
mulaghaccam samuhatam
sa ve diva va rattim va
samadhimadhigacchati.

Verse 249: People give according to their faith and their devotion; one who
is displeased with others receiving food and drink cannot attain concentration
(samadhi) by day or by night.

Verse 250: He who has this feeling of displeasure cut off, uprooted and
removed, will surely attain concentration (samadhi) by day or by night.



The Story of Tissa

While residing at the Jetavana monastery, the Buddha uttered Verses (249) and
(250) of this book, with reference to Tissa, a young bhikkhu.

Tissa, a young bhikkhu, had a very bad habit of disparaging other people’s
charities and good deeds. He even criticized the charities given by such
renowned donors like Anathapindika and Visakha. Besides, he boasted that his
relatives were very rich and were like a well where anyone could come for water.
Hearing him boast thus, other bhikkhus were very sceptical; so they decided to
find out the truth.

Some young bhikkhus went to the village from where he came and made
enquiries. They found out that Tissa’s relatives were all poor and that all this
time Tissa had only been making a vain boast. When the Buddha was told about
this, he said, “Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu who is displeased with others
receiving gifts and offerings can never attain Magga and Phala.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as follows:

Verse 249: People give according to their faith
and their devotion; one who is displeased with others receiving food
and drink cannot attain concentration (samadhi) by day or by night.
 
Verse 250: He who has this feeling of displeasure
cut off, uprooted and removed, will surely attain concentration
(samadhi) by day or by night.
