Concentrated Truth »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

What are the Benefits of Calm Concentration?


Once in Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
Bhikkhus, train and develop concentration! Any Bhikkhu, who is concentrated
understands things as they really are, and as they really become! How?
1: He understands as it really is: This and such is Suffering,
2: He understands as it really is: This and such is the Cause of Suffering,
3: He understands as it really is: This and such is the Ceasing of Suffering,
4: He understands as it really is: This is the Way leading to the End of Suffering!
Bhikkhus, develop concentration! A Bhikkhu, who is concentrated understands
not only the appearance, but things as they really are, and as they really become!
Therefore, Bhikkhus, an effort should be made to comprehensively understand:
This is Suffering; This is the Cause of Suffering; This is the End of Suffering;
This is the way leading to the End of Suffering... An effort should be made to
comprehend, fathom, grasp, understand, and penetrate these Four Noble Truths!

                        

Comments:
Those who makes that effort, and understands, shortens this Samsaric round...
Those who neglects that effort, and ignores it, prolongs this
Samsaric round...
