Final Wisdom!

What are the 3 Supramundane Mental Abilities?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, there are these three supramundane abilities. What three?
1: The ability to come to know, what one did not yet know...
2: The ability to gradually achieve the highest and final wisdom...
3: The ability of one, who dwells in the highest and final wisdom...
These are the three supreme supramundane abilities. (aññā-indriya)

For Details on the general Abilities (indriya) & Final Knowledge (aññā) see:

Source of reference (edited extract):
The Grouped Sayings of the Buddha. Samyutta Nikāya.
Book [V: 204] 48 The Mental Abilities: 23 Final Wisdom..

Final Wisdom!
