Chapter XXI - PAKINNAKA VAGGA - Miscellaneous
DELIGHT IN SOLITUDE
Ekasanam ekaseyyam eko caram atandito
Eko damayam attanam vanante ramito siya. 
He who sits alone, rests alone, walks alone in diligent practice, who in solitude controls himself, will find delight in the forest. 
XXI: 09 It is better to stay alone (Ekavihari)
Venerable Ekavihari did not like to mix much with other bhikkhus, but kept to himself. All alone, he would practise mindfulness diligently whether lying down, sitting, standing or walking. Other bhikkhus misunderstood Ekavihari and reported the matter to the Buddha. Instead of admonishing him, the Buddha applauded Ekavihari, 'My son has done well; it is good for a bhikkhu to stay in solitude and seclusion.'
