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 and gives him various things which he himself is very fond of gruel from sal flowers, flesh of pigs with jujube-fruit, oily tube like vegetables, rice with curries and condiments, muslin from Benares and 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 and blessed him. Later, Ugga died and was reborn in a mind born world (manomayakāya). He visited the Buddha at Jetavana and told him that his hopes had been realized. A.iii.49f.
