二显示此二摄一切定

(b) How serenity and insight include all states of meditative concentration

《广论》【闻·思·修】Lamrim·Meditation

  第二显示此二摄一切定。譬如一树,虽有无边枝叶花果,然总摄彼一切扼要厥为根本。如是经说大小乘无边三摩地,然总摄一切之宗要厥为止观。解深密经云:「如我所说,无量声闻菩萨如来,有无量种胜三摩地,当知一切皆此所摄。故欲求定者,不能寻求无边差别,应求一切等持总聚止观二品,一切时中恒应修学。修次下编云:「世尊虽说诸菩萨众无量无数等持差别,然止观二品,能遍一切胜三摩地,当说止观双运转道。修次中编亦云:「由此二品能摄一切三摩地故,诸瑜伽师一切时中应修止观。

(b) How serenity and insight include all states of meditative concentration
The branches, leaves, flowers, and fruits of a tree are limitless, yet the core point at which they all come together is the root. As in this example, serenity and insight are the sublime core at which gathers all that the Buddha says about the limitless states of meditative concentration in Mahayana and Hinayana. The Sutra Unravelling the Intended Meaning states:
  Know that serenity and insight include all of the many aspects of the states of meditative concentration which I have taught for sravakas, bodhisattvas and tathagatas.

Therefore, since those who are intent on attaining meditative concentration cannot comprehend a limitless number of distinct forms, they should know well and always rely on the techniques for sustaining serenity and insight, the synthesis of all concentrations. Kamalasila’s third Stages of Meditation says:
  Although the Bhagavan therein presented distinct bodhisattva concentrations beyond number or measure, serenity and insight cover all of them. Therefore, we will discuss just that path which unites serenity and insight.

And, as stated in Kamalasila’s second Stages of Meditation:
  Since those two include all states of meditative concentration, all yogis should at all times definitely rely upon serenity and insight.
