Dittha: 1. seen - Since sight is the principal sense of perception as well as of apperception (cp. cakkhu), that which is seen is the chief representation of any sense-impression, and dittha combined with suta (heard) and muta (sensed by means of smell, taste and touch), to which vinnata (apperceived by the mind) is often joined, gives a complete analysis of that which comprises all means of cognition and recognition. Thus dittha+suta stands collectively for the whole series; 2. known, understood; dittha panha a problem or question solved; 3. (adj.) visible, determined by sight, in connection with dhamma meaning the visible order of things, the world of sensation, this world (opposite samparayika dhamma the state after death, the beyond). Usually in compounds: ditthadhamma, of this world, in this world; dithabhinibbuta, attained to Nibbana in this birth; ditthanibbana, earthly; ditthasukhavihara, happy condition (or faring well) in this world; ditthavedaniya to be perceived in this condition
