      Veneration to the Most Exalted, the Purified, the Supremely Enlightened Buddha

      "Where there is no quarrel,
      Where the mind is undisturbed,
      Where there is freedom from lust,
      Where lethargy is done away with,
      Where passions are conquered,
      Where birth and death are understood –
      Here is the man of wisdom, the muni.
      When a person like this is present at an offering,
      You should welcome him and honor him with food and drink,
      without any trace of a frown.
      This is how a gift will be effective."
      (From Puralasa Sutta – Sutta Nipata III.4, Translated by Ven H. Saddhatissa. I am looking for an online version for his sutta as well
      as for the Magha Sutta Snp III.5. Both suttas are about dana)

      With metta / Antony.
