14 Types of Personal Offerings

In the Dakkhinavibhavga Sutta, the Buddha explains the fourteen types of personal offerings (patipuggalika-dakkhina):
Ananda, there are fourteen types of personal offerings:

[1]  One makes an offering to a Buddha: this is the first type of personal offering.

[2]  One makes an offering to a Paccekabuddha: this is the second type of personal offering.

[3]  One makes an offering to an arahant, a disciple of the Buddha: this is the third type of personal offering.

[4]  One makes an offering to one who has entered upon the way to the realisation of the fruit of a arahantship: this is the fourth type of personal offering.

[5]  One makes an offering to a non-returner (anagami): this is the fifth type of personal offering.

[6]  One makes an offering to one who has entered upon the way to the realisation of the fruit of non-return: this is the sixth type of personal offering.

[7]  One makes an offering to a once-returner (sakadagami): this is the seventh type of personal offering.

[8]  One makes an offering to one who has entered upon the way to the realisation of the fruit of once-return: this is the eighth type of personal offering.

[9]  One makes an offering to a stream-enterer (sotapanna): this is the ninth type of personal offering.
