Pali Word of the Day

Kolankola: "If a man, after the disappearance of the 3 fetters [has entered the stream (to Nibbána), he is no more subject to rebirth in lower worlds, is firmly established,] is destined to full enlightenment, he, after having passed among noble families two or three times through the round of rebirths, puts an end to suffering. Such a man is called 'one passing from one noble family to another' (kolankola).
