Place (i.e., a meditative environment) refers to one of the Seven types of Suitability, which should be met in order to create an environment that is supportive of meditation practice.—The fourth cause for developing the controlling faculties is to make sure that suitable conditions are met for insights to unfold. Proper, suitable and appropriate activities can bring about insight knowledge. The first suitability is that of place. A meditative environment should be well furnished, well supported, a place where it is possible to gain insight.
