What Causes Final Knowledge?

What Induces the Final Knowledge?

The Blessed Buddha once pointed out:

1: Considering the Transience of all Constructions, leads to final knowledge...
2: Contemplating the Pain within all passing states, leads to final knowledge...
3: Comprehending the Impersonality of all phenomena, leads to final knowledge...
4: Considering the advantage of Withdrawal by Detachment, leads to final knowledge...
5: Contemplating the Fading Away of Greed by fine Disillusion, leads to final knowledge...
6: Comprehending the Freedom, Bliss & Peace of Stilled Ceasing, leads to final knowledge...

One endowed with Final Knowledge (Aññā) knows:
Rebirth has ceased, completed is this Noble life, done is what had to be done,
is no state of being higher, beyond, or after this...

More on Understanding (Paññā):
The_Understanding_Ability, Outstanding_Understanding,
Revealing_Understanding, Understanding_is_the_Chief,
Supreme_Understanding, Freed_by_Knowing, The_Chief_Ability,
Right_Understanding, The Seven invisible Diamonds,

The Grouped Sayings by the Buddha. Samyutta Nikāya. Book [V 345], section 55:3

Have a nice & noble day!

Friendship is the Greatest!
