Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

"Giving what is giving strength? Giving what is giving beauty?
Giving what is giving pleasantness? Giving what is giving sight?
Who gives everything? May I know about this?"
"Giving food is giving strength.
Giving clothing is giving beauty.
Giving conveyances is giving pleasantness
And giving light is giving sight
He that gives a dwelling gives everything.
And advising according to the Teaching,
One gives the deathless state."
