calm abiding and wisdom

In order for us to achieve enlightenment, what do we need. We need insight wisdom. Basically we need to recognize, understand or realize the truth. Which is according to the Buddhadharma – which can be achieved by understanding the selflessness of phenomena and the selflessness of a person, or an ego, or self. That kind of insight wisdom can only be established if you have a steady, or a stable, unwavering, unshakable foundation of shamata or shine, calm abiding. I don’t know how you translate that. Basically that is what you need to achieve, you need to establish the shine.
