Knowledge according to the Buddhist doctrine is of three kinds;
- Sutamaya Panna – knowledge acquired through listening and reading. It is often not clear.
- Cintamaya Panna – knowledge acquired through thinking and speculation. It is not always accurate.
- Bavanayama Panna – knowledge gained through contemplation or meditation. It is clear and accurate.
(Diga Nikaya iii)
