Siha Sutta: To General Siha (On Generosity)

I have
heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Vesali,
in the Great Forest, at the Gabled Pavilion. Then General Siha
went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one
side. As he was sitting there he said to the Blessed One: “Is it possible,
lord, to point out a fruit of generosity visible in the here & now?”

“It
is possible, Siha. One who gives, who is a master of giving, is dear &
charming to people at large. And the fact that who is generous, a master of
giving, is dear & charming to people at large: this is a fruit of
generosity visible in the here & now.

“Furthermore,
good people, people of integrity, admire one who gives, who is a master of
giving. And the fact that good people, people of integrity, admire one who
gives, who is a master of giving: this, too, is a fruit of generosity visible
in the here & now.

“Furthermore,
the fine reputation of one who gives, who is a master of giving, is spread far
& wide. And the fact that the fine reputation of one who gives, who is a
master of giving, is spread far & wide: this, too, is a fruit of generosity
visible in the here & now.

“Furthermore,
when one who gives, who is a master of giving, approaches any assembly of
people — noble warriors, brahmans, householders, or contemplatives — he/she
does so confidently & without embarrassment. And the fact that when one who
gives, who is a master of giving, approaches any assembly of people — noble
warriors, brahmans, householders, or contemplatives — he/she does so
confidently & without embarrassment: this, too, is a fruit of generosity
visible in the here & now.

“Furthermore,
at the break-up of the body, after death, one who gives, who is a master of
giving, reappears in a good destination, the heavenly world. And the fact that
at the break-up of the body, after death, one who gives, who is a master of
giving, reappears in a good destination, the heavenly world: this is a fruit of
generosity in the next life.”

When this
was said, General Siha said to the Blessed One: “As for the four fruits of
generosity visible in the here & now that have been pointed out by the
Blessed One, it’s not the case that I go by conviction in the Blessed One with
regard to them. I know them, too. I am one who gives, a master of giving, dear
& charming to people at large. I am one who gives, a master of giving; good
people, people of integrity, admire me. I am one who gives, a master of giving,
and my fine reputation is spread far & wide: ‘Siha is generous, a doer, a
supporter of the Sangha.’ I am one who gives, a master of giving, and when I
approach any assembly of people — noble warriors, brahmans, householders, or
contemplatives — I do so confidently & without embarrassment.

“But
when the Blessed One says to me, ‘At the break-up of the body, after death, one
who gives, who is a master of giving, reappears in a good destination, the
heavenly world,’ that I do not know. That is where I go by conviction in the
Blessed One.”

“So
it is, Siha. So it is. At the break-up of the body, after death, one who gives,
who is a master of giving, reappears in a good destination, the heavenly
world.”

One who gives is dear. People at large admire him. He
gains honor. His status grows. He enters an assembly unembarrassed. He is
confident — the man unmiserly. Therefore the wise give gifts. Seeking bliss,
they would subdue the stain of miserliness. Established in the three-fold
heavenly world, they enjoy themselves long in fellowship with the devas. Having
made the opportunity for themselves, having done what is skillful, then when
they fall from here they fare on, self-radiant, in Nandana.[1]
There they delight, enjoy, are joyful, replete with the five sensuality
strands. Having followed the words of the sage who is Such, they enjoy
themselves in heaven — disciples of the One Well-gone.
