According to Abhidharma literature there are three pure faculties that control supramundane virtues (Skt. lokottaravairāgyādhipati). They are:

  • the faculty of 'making all understood' (Skt. anājñātamājñāsyāmīndriya)
  • the faculty of 'understanding all' (Skt. ajñendriya)
  • the faculty of 'having understood all' (Skt. ajñātāvindriya)

These three are correlated to nine of the previous faculties (faith, diligence, mindfulness, concentration, wisdom, pleasure, suffering, mental ease and mental discomfort), of respectively, someone on the paths of seeing, meditation, and no-more-learning.
