6. Description Abstract Chapter 6 is a comprehensive and a detailed analysis of the attainment of the

sotāpatti-phala, it being the most vital milepost on this Path. This chapter includes

a discussion on the following:

1) The state of mind of a stream-enterer

2) The conduct of a stream-enterer

3) The blessings and strengths of a stream-enterer

4) The possibility of someone having become a noble person in a past life

5) Can a stream-enterer commit suicide?

6) To what extent does a stream-enterer see Nibbāna?

7) Lay noble disciples

8) Non-humans attaining supramundane fruits

The chapter concludes that the experience of attaining sotāpatti-phala becomes

the most significant experience one ever encounters up to such time in saṃsāra.

It makes one a Buddhist by conviction.
