A.10_026 Kaalii Sutta In explanation of the saying:
Attainment comes from a peaceful mind. We must purge the general who is the defilements to whom corporeality is so dear -- by being aloof, concentrated, knowing happiness successively -- thus we don't need to be gregarious.
It is explained, that some monks find benefit in cultivating meditation on any one of the ten devices (kasi.na): 1. earth-device (pa.thavii-kasi.na); 2. water-device (apo-kasi.na); 3. fire-device (tejo-kasi.na); 4. air-device (vayo-kasi.na); 5. blue-device (niila-kasi.na); 6. yellow-device (piita-kasi.na); 7. red-device (lohita-kasi.na); 8. white-device (odaata-kasi.na); 9. space-device (aakaasa-kasi.na), and; 10. consciousness-device (vi~n~naa.na-kasi.na). Thereby they can know the cause of suffering, the nature of suffering, the extinction of suffering and discern the path to the extinction of suffering, thereby bringing attainment of peace of mind.
