vana ［林・園林］ (, Pali; rin or onrin): A grove, forest, or wood. Certain wealthy lay believers offered groves, with monasteries built in them, to Shakyamuni Buddha and his Order. The wealthy merchant Sudatta built Jetavana Monastery as an offering in a grove donated by Jetri, a son of King Prasenajit of Kosala, in the city Shrāvastī. Jetavana means Jetri’s Grove. Venuvana Monastery, or Bamboo Grove Monastery, was built in a grove offered by Kalandaka, a wealthy patron of the Buddha, in the city Rājagriha. Āmrapālīvana, or Āmrapālī’s Grove, was a grove of mango trees offered to the Buddha by Āmrapālī, a courtesan in Vaishālī. Mahāvana Monastery, or Great Forest Monastery, in Vaishālī is also known as a place frequented by the Buddha for preaching.
