It.062 Indriya Sutta Bhikkhus, there are these three faculties. What three? The faculty of the assurance: 'I shall come to finally know what is as yet not finally known'; the faculty of final knowledge; the faculty of one who has finally known. These, bhikkhus, are the three faculties. For a learner who is training In conformity with the direct path, The knowledge of destruction arises first, And final knowledge immediately follows. Freed by that final knowledge, By destroying the fetters of being The serene one has the certainty: "Unshakable is my release." Endowed with this faculty The peaceful one delights in the peaceful state. Having conquered Mara and his mount, He bears his final body. 45/395 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.053 faculties
