You should give use more reference, because there are many difference definition from each teacher.

However, I guess your question refer to objects, knowledge, of mundane right view in mahācattārīsakasutta:

“And what, bhikkhus, is right view? Right view, I say, is twofold: there is right view that is affected by taints, partaking of merit, ripening in the acquisitions; and there is right view that is noble, taintless, supramundane, a factor of the path.

“And what, bhikkhus, is right view that is affected by the taints, partaking of merit, ripening in the acquisitions? ‘There is what is given and what is offered and what is sacrificed; there is fruit and result of good and bad actions; there is this life and the next life; there is mother and father; there are beings who are reborn spontaneously; there are in the world good and virtuous recluses and brahmins who have realised for themselves by direct knowledge and declare this world and the other world.’ This is right view affected by taints, partaking of merit, ripening in the acquisitions.

How to translate this sutta-pāli by only pāli context without commentary and without own opinion:

sāsavā puññabhāgiyā upadhivepakkā

  • [saṅkhāra, kamma-bhava] right view that kilesa-vaṭṭa-paṭiccasamuppāda depending on [kāma-āsava (kāma-upādāna), diṭṭhi-āsava (diṭṭhi-upādāna, sīlabata-upādāna), bhava-āsava (attavāda-upādāna), avijjā-āsava],
  • right view that is kammavaṭṭa-paṭiccasamuppāda,
  • right view that give vipākavaṭṭa-paṭiccasamuppāda.
