Aññā: 'highest knowledge', gnosis, refers to the perfect knowledge of the Arahant Saint; see: ariya-puggala. The following passage occurs frequently in the Suttas, when a Bhikkhu indicates his attainment of Nobility arahatta: He makes known the highest knowledge aññam vyākaroti, in exactly this way: 'Rebirth has ceased, fulfilled is this Noble life, done is what should be done, and there is no more of this to come.'
