It is interesting to note how self-view and clinging to rites-rituals fetters are not mentioned in this sutta and in other similar suttas in that portion of the Samyutta Nikaya. It is interesting to me because often discussion of stream entry is focused on those two aspects. Perhaps it is reflective of a more "positive" description rather than the negative fetter description more usually discussed, and of course the need to contrast the two figures- that of the noble one and the wheel-turning emperor. It is a comparison that is very striking, given the often divine and legendary status given to emperors and monarchs at that time.
"If beings knew, as I know, the results of giving & sharing, they would not eat without having given, nor would the stain of miserliness overcome their minds. Even if it were their last bite, their last mouthful, they would not eat without having shared."
