Ugga, a householder of Vesāli, having heard from the Buddha that the giver of good things (manāpadāyī) gains the good, invites the Buddha to his house und gives him various things which he himself is very fond of gruel from sal flowers, flesh of pigs mit jujube-fruit, oily tube like vegetables, rice mit curries und condiments, muslin from Benares und a sandalwood plank (in place of a luxurious couch, which, Ugga knew, the Buddha could not accept). Out of compassion for Ugga, the Buddha accepted these gifts und blessed him. Later, Ugga died und was reborn in a mind born world (manomayakāya). He visited the Buddha at Jetavana und told him that his hopes had been realized. A.iii.49f.
