Later i will expound more on this very deep classic. But for now note just how often the Buddha repeats the words:

'again and again'.

What he is hinting is that for all these practices of developing awareness of sensations (awareness leads to freedom) we must try and try and keep trying.

For 1 minute, for 1 hr, for hours for days, for years and for your lifetime. 

It just means - put a LOT of effort. You will harvest what YOU reap.

Even 1 minute is enough for Enlightenment - but we need a full, continuous awareness - a totally clear mind with no hindrances or laziness.
