Theravada (Pāli: theravāda; Sanskrit: स्थविरवाद sthaviravāda; literally, "the Teaching of the Elders" or "the Ancient Teaching") is the world's oldest surviving Buddhist school, with an uninterrupted lineage of thought and practice extending over two thousand years. The most distinctive characteristic of Theravadin practice is the central importance of monastic life, such that ultimate religious attainment is often seen as exclusive domain of the bhikkhus (religious renunciants).

Trees are the largest plants. They are not a single taxon (unit of biological classification) but include members of many plant taxa. A tree can be defined as a large, perennial (living more than one or two years), woody plant. Although there is no set definition regarding minimum size, the term generally applies to plants at least 6 meters (20 feet) high at maturity and, more importantly, having secondary branches supported on a single, woody main stem or trunk.
