The Seven Ways of Giving?

I ask Venerable Nisabho a question and his response involved the consideration of the “Seven Ways of Giving.” The link to this question and it’s response is included with the post. (Roughly six minute in duration.)

The mention of the “Seven Ways of Giving” I am unable to find the corresponding sutta. Does someone know what sutta Venerable Nisabho is referring too?


In AN 8.33 the Buddha speaks about the eight ways of giving. Ven Canda briefly speaks about them in one of her sutta classes (starting from 1:01:15). There is also AN 8.31 about eight types of gifts.


AN 7.52 talks about 7 motivations for giving and how they result in rebirths in different heavens.
