26.Not with monks or brahmans
Neither with the poor and needy
Does the base man share his food
Nor give any drink or sustenance.
People say that selfish man
Is like a drought, a rainless sky.
27.One who shares his wealth with some,
But does not gladly give to others,
Is like a local shower;
In such a way the wise describe this person.
28.But one who rains down bountiful gifts,
Gladly giving here and there
Out of compassion for all beings,
And who always says ‘Give! Give!’
29.This type of person is like
A great rain cloud filled with rain,
Thundering and pouring down
Refreshing water everywhere,
Drenching the highlands and the lowlands too,
Generous and without distinctions.
