> "What they forget is that after a period of wandering, the Buddha
settled down to spend twenty-five years in the same monastery, teaching
and offering himself as a community leader."
His last year on earth was spent wandering all over the place just before his Parinirvana. Whenever you get a Sutra in the Pali Canon it seems to come from a new venue every time....almost. Maybe in his middle years he stopped at one place or favoured one place for his rains retreat but I don't think he ever settled down.
