Arhat (Skt.; Tib. དགྲ་བཅོམ་པ་, drachompa; Wyl. rigpawiki dgra bcom pa) — name given to the ultimate result of the shravaka yana and pratyekabuddha yana, which differ in terms of realisation and qualities. Arhat is also used as an epithet of the Buddha rigpawiki. One who has completely overcome the enemy of the disturbing emotions and is therefore worthy of praise.


There are two kinds of arhats: those with remainder and those without remainder.
