XXVI:2 Tranquillity and Insight

On one occasion, a group of bhikkhus came to pay homage to the Buddha. The Venerable Sariputta, seeing that the time was ripe for those bhikkhus to attain Arahanthood, approached the Buddha and asked a question, solely for the benefit of those bhikkhus. The question was: 'What are the two Dhammas?' The Buddha replied, 'Sariputta! Tranquillity and Insight Meditation are the two Dhammas for maintaining peace and reality in life.'
