428. The good from The bad?

“දසබලයන්වහන්සේ නමැති ශෛලමය පර්වතයෙන් පැන නැඟී, අමා මහ නිවන නම් වූ මහා සාගරය අවසන් කොට ඇති, ආර්ය අෂ්ටාංගික මාර්ගය නම් වූ සිහිල් දිය දහරින් හෙබි, උතුම් ශ්‍රීමුඛ බුද්ධවචන ගංගාවෝ, ලෝ සතුන්ගේ සසර දුක් නිවාලමින්, බොහෝ කල් ගලා බස්නා සේක්වා!”

Q. If some one earn his Money With all the bad deeds and then donate to temples in the name of The Lord Buddha. What is the Buddhist teaching around that? Is this gonna be regarded as good deed and the person who donated gonna be benefited?

A. The almsgiving just give him the benefits / reaps of itself only. Bad deeds he did and retributions for them won’t cut out by any means and there is every possibility to hinder or may even cut out for so long if not almost forever the benefits / reaps of the almsgiving too. (Isn’t it enough?)
And also pre-intention, exact-intention and post-intention are very much counted when you do/offer a thing/deed (as he/she knows the true story), especially in an almsgiving.

A / R. “The 4 purifications of giving.
Ananda, there are these 4 purifications of giving (catu dakkhiṇa,visuddhi). What are the four?

(1) There is, Ānanda, the gift that is purified on account of the giver, but not the recipients.
(2) There is, Ānanda, the gift that is purified on account of the recipients, but not the giver.
(3) There is, Ānanda, the gift that is purified on account of neither the giver nor the recipients.
(4) There is, Ānanda, the gift that is purified on account of both the giver and the recipients.

(1) And how, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of the giver, but not the recipients?
Here, Ānanda, the giver is morally virtuous, good by nature, but the recipients are immoral, bad by
nature. Thus, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of the giver, but not the recipient.

(2) And how, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of the recipients, but not the giver?
Here, Ānanda, the giver is immoral, bad by nature, the recipient is morally virtuous, good by nature.
Thus, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of the recipients, but not the giver.

(3) And how, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of neither the giver nor the recipients?
Here, Ānanda, the giver is immoral, bad by nature, and the recipients are immoral, bad by nature.
Thus, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of neither the giver nor the recipients.

(4) And how, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of both the giver and the recipients?
Here, Ānanda, the giver is morally virtuous, good by nature, and the recipients, too, are morally virtuous,
good by nature. Thus, Ānanda, is the gift purified on account of both the giver and the recipients.”

These, Ananda, are the 4 kinds of purification of giving.”
(Dakkhiṇa Vibhaṅga Sutta)
