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.'
