The Three Kinds of Full Understanding - Full understanding of the known



Full understanding of the known (nata parinna) is panna realising the

characteristics of nama and rupa that appear as non-self. Insight of the first

stage, which clearly discerns the difference between the characteristics of

nama and of rupa (nama-rupa-pariccheda-nana) is a basis for the further

development of panna. Full understanding of the known is panna that applies

the knowledge gained at the moment of this stage of insight, and it begins at

this stage. Panna should continue to investigate over and over again the

characteristics of other kinds of nama and rupa, in addition to those realised

at the moment the first stage of insight knowledge arose. Only then can nama

and rupa be clearly understood as they are.
