56.29 Pariññeyya Sutta
Should be Comprehended

What should be understood, what should be abandoned, what should be realized, and what should be developed?

“Monks, there are Four Noble Truths. What four? The noble truth of suffering, the Noble Truth of the origin of suffering, the Noble Truth of the cessation of suffering, and the Noble Truth of the path that leads to the cessation of suffering. These are the Four Noble Truths. Of these Four Noble Truths, there is one to be completely understood, one to be abandoned, one to be realized, and one to be developed.

“And which noble truth should be completely understood? The noble truth of suffering should be completely understood. The noble truth of the origin of suffering should be abandoned. The noble truth of the cessation of suffering should be realized. The noble truth of the path that leads to the cessation of suffering should be developed.

“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 cessation of suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the path that leads to the cessation of suffering.’”
