Dhammapada verse(s) in Pali:

Verse 249
dadāti ve yathāsaddhaṃ, yathāpasādanaṃ jano.
tattha yo maṅku bhavati, paresaṃ pānabhojane.
na so divā vā rattiṃ vā, samādhimadhigacchati.

Verse 250
yassa cetaṃ samucchinnaṃ, mūlaghaccaṃ samūhataṃ.
sa ve divā vā rattiṃ vā, samādhimadhigacchati.

English translation of verse(s):

Verse 249
People give according to their faith or regard. If one becomes discontented with the food and drink given by others, one does not attain meditative absorption, either by day or by night.

Verse 250
But he in who this (discontent) is fully destroyed, uprooted and extinct, he attains absorption, both by day and by night.

(Translated by Acharya Buddharakkhita)
