Adiṇṇapubbaka

A brahmin of Sāvatthi, father of Maṭṭhakuṇḍalī, so called because he never gave anything to anyone.

When, later, Maṭṭhakuṇḍalī, having been born in heaven, visits him and persuades him to take refuge with the Buddha, he invites the Buddha with his monks to a meal at his house.

At the conclusion of the meal Maṭṭhakuṇḍalī appears again and Adiṇṇapubbaka, after listening to the Buddha’s teaching, attains the First Fruit of the Path. DhA.i.25‑30; VvA.322 f.
