Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Pinda Sutta:Once the Buddha was at Pañcasālā when the day came for all young people to send gifts to each other.The Buddha went to the village for alms,but the villagers,influenced by Māra,gave him nothing,and he returned with his empty bowl.Māra tried to influence the Buddha to go a second time,but this he refused to do (S.i.113; the incident is also found at DhA.iii.,p.257f).The Commentary says (SA.i.141) that Māra did not want the Buddha to accept the gifts of the maidens and to preach to them,because then they would pass beyond his evil influence.
