What is the core meditation towards parinibbana?

Is the watching of the breath the most important one? If I'm correct it leads to the insight of impermanence, seeing falling and rising and the loss of the defilement of self into becoming a Sotapanna.

I think this sutta gives an important clue - it appears early in the Chapter of the Twos, in the Anguttara Nikaya:

Tranquillity and Insight
Two things, O monks, partake of supreme knowledge. What two? Tranquillity and insight.
If tranquillity is developed, what benefit does it bring? The mind becomes developed. And
what is the benefit of a developed mind? All lust is abandoned.
If insight is developed, what benefit does it bring? Wisdom becomes developed. And what is
the benefit of developed wisdom? All ignorance is abandoned.
A mind defiled by lust is not freed; and wisdom defiled by ignorance cannot develop. Thus,
monks, through the fading away of lust there is liberation of mind; and through the fading away
of ignorance there is liberation by wisdom.
(2:2.10)
