Over-Staying (Second)

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, Bhagavā, Sāvatthi-town residing.

There then the Lucky Man addressed the beggars gathered round:

Beggars!

And the beggars responding:
Elder!
the Lucky Man said this:

There are these five disadvantages of over-staying.

What five?

Having residence-greed,
having supporter-greed,
having gains-greed,
having status-greed,
having Dhamma-greed.

These, beggars, are the five disadvantages from over-staying.
