Ok, so earlier when you mentioned about vipassana techniques, you meant the way Sujin Boriharnwanaket teaches? You accept that Suppabuddha was enlightened while listening to the Buddha, who he happened to come across (due to past kamma) while he was out looking for food, but he wasn't a) understanding realities..OR b) he did something that was unnatural or C) he had a special different method ?
a) Understanding realities - I dont get
b) Doing something unnatural - I dont understand
The Buddha gave a progressive teaching to Suppabuddha who gave full attention to the words of the Buddha. Suppabuddha's mind contemplated the benefit of virtue/generosity -the bliss of heaven - the danger of sensual desire - the bliss of renunciation, resulting in Suppabuddha's mind acquiring samadhi at which point the Buddha gave the teaching of the four noble truths - which Suppabuddha due to his mind being joyful & happy along with his body being calmed/tranquilised was able to penetrate.
