56.2 Patisallāna Sutta
Meditation

Those who meditate understand things as they really are.

“Monks, develop meditation. A monk who meditates has true understanding. What does he truly understand? He truly understands: ‘This is suffering.’ He truly understands: ‘This is the origin of suffering.’ He truly understands: ‘This is the end of suffering.’ He truly understands: ‘This is the path that leads to the end of suffering.’ Monks, develop meditation. A monk who meditates has true understanding.

“Therefore, monks, you should make an effort to understand: ‘This is suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the origin of suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the end of suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the path that leads to the end of suffering.’”
