Is it correct to say that the vipassana experience of bhanga is a synonym of stream entrance (sotapatti)?

  • With 'bhanga' I mean 'bhanga nana', the 5th insight knowledge, also called 'bhanga-nupassana-nana'. Is it correct to relate this 'experience' with what The Buddha says in verse # 374 of the Dhammapada: 'Fully knowing the arising and passing of the khandhas, One attains joy and delight. For those who know, this is the deathless'. – Guy Eugène Dubois Oct 20 '17 at 20:08

Not! Bhanga nana is just the 5th of the 16 stages of insight. Sotapatti starts from the 14th, i.e. Magga nana.
