[EDITED ENTRY]

 

Di.t.tha: 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 di.t.tha combined with suta (heard) and muta (sensed by means of smell, taste and touch), to which vi~n~naata (apperceived by the mind) is often joined, gives a complete analysis of that which comprises all means of cognition and recognition. Thus di.t.tha+suta stands collectively for the whole series; 2. known, understood; di.t.tha pa~nha 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 samparaayika dhamma the state after death, the beyond). Usually in compounds: di.t.thadhamma, of this world, in this world; di.thabhinibbuta, attained to Nibbaana in this birth; dit.thanibbaana, earthly; di.t.thasukhavihaara, happy condition (or faring well) in this world; di.t.thavedaniiya to be perceived in this condition
