11.15 Rāmaneyyaka Sutta
A Delightful Place

Whether in a village or forest, in a valley or on the plain, wherever the liberated ones live is truly a delightful place.

At Sāvatthi, in Jeta’s Garden, Sakka, lord of the gods, went to the Blessed One, paid homage to the Buddha and stood to one side. Standing to one side, he asked the Blessed One a question, “Bhante, what is really called the delightful place?”

The Blessed One:

“There are well constructed shrines, woodland shrines, parks, and lotus ponds. These are not worth one sixteenth of a delightful human being.

“Whether in a village or forest, in a valley or on the plain, wherever the liberated ones live is truly a delightful place.”
