Tranquillity (Passaddhi)
is a Link to Enlightenment


    Tranquillity is a Link to Awakening!

The Tranquillity Link to Awakening (passaddhi-sambojjhanga) has the
characteristic of peace, and the function of stilling, which manifests
as absence of restless trembling. Stillness of feeling, perception and
mental construction is the factor that induces bodily Tranquillity.
Stillness of consciousness itself induces mental Tranquillity.
The proximate cause of Tranquillity is the satisfaction within Joy!
The resulting effect of Tranquillity is the bliss within Happiness!

The Buddha once said: What mental fermentations (āsava) should be
overcome by development? If a Bhikkhu by careful & rational attention
develops the Tranquillity Link to Awakening based on seclusion, based
on disillusion, based on ceasing, and culminating in cool relinquishment,
then neither can mental fermentation, nor any fever, nor any discontent
ever arise in him. MN2 [i 11]

In one who is joyous, the body becomes calm & the mind becomes calm.
The Tranquillity Link to Awakening emerges right there. He develops it,
& for him it goes to the culmination of its development. MN118 [iii 85]

Calm is his thought, calm is his speech, and calm is his deed, such one who
truly is knowing, is indeed wholly freed, perfectly tranquil and wise.
Dhammapada 96

The one who eliminates discontent, tearing it out by the roots, utterly cuts
it out, such one spontaneously becomes absorbed in the calm of tranquillity
both day & night. Dhammapada 250

The one who is tranquil in movement, calmed in speech, stilled in thought,
collected and composed, who sees right through and rejects all allurements
of this world, such one is truly a 'Peaceful One'. Dhammapada 378
