The Pali word is Vipassana, which can also be translated as “special seeing” or “seeing the essence.” The Insight we are referring to is “Supramundane” Insight into the true nature of reality, not just ordinary insight. Insight into things as they really are leads to true wisdom, then suffering ends and happiness follows. This is the ultimate goal of meditation.
