The Buddha is said to have identified two paramount mental qualities (Samatha “serenity” and Vipassana “insight”) that arise from wholesome meditative practice. Serenity or Tranquillity which steadies, composes, unifies and concentrates the mind. Insight which enables one to see, explore and discern your Mind. It is said that tranquility meditation can lead to the attainment of supernatural powers such as psychic powers and mind reading while insight meditation can lead to the realisation of Nibbana.
In the Pali canon, the Buddha never mentions independent samatha and vipassana meditation practices, instead, Samatha and Vipassana are two qualities of mind, to be developed through meditation. In the “Four Ways to Arahantship Sutta” Ananda reports that people attain Arahantship using serenity and insight in one of three ways: develop serenity and then insight / develop insight and then serenity / develop serenity and insight in tandem. Through the meditative development of serenity, one is able to suppress obscuring hindrances, and, with the suppression of the hindrances, it is through the meditative development of insight that one gains liberating wisdom. Moreover, the Buddha is said to have extolled serenity and insight as conduits for attaining Nibbana (Nirvana), the unconditioned state as in the “Kimsuka Tree Sutta“, where the Buddha provides an elaborate metaphor in which serenity and insight are “the swift pair of messengers” who deliver the message of Nibbana via the Noble Eightfold Path. In the Threefold training, samatha is part of samadhi, the eight limb of the threefold path, together with sati, mindfulness.
