Greetings,

Does the concept of "change of lineage" that is found in the Visuddhimagga have any relevance to the retaining of the wisdom associated with the path and fruit of nobility?

If panna would be an affirmatory positive phenomenon and not a mere removal then it would be a product and therefore impermanent even from the perspective of the subject.
