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.”
