  Open Dwelling Teaches the Truth of Transience!

The Blessed One often praised Tree Roots as a fine dwelling place:
Secluded in mind, and guarded well by deities, one lives there truly devoted without any
longing or urging for any city or house... And when the tender leaves are seen,
first bright
carmine red, then turning green, and finally to shades of yellow as they fall, right then one
relinquishes mistaken belief in permanence once and for all... Tree roots is thus granted
by the One as a serene scene no wise one should reject at all, for study of rise and fall...
Visuddhimagga I 74, Vin I 58, 96
