'Vineyya' here does not mean complete removal. It refers to the removal of preliminary hindrances, mostly by cultivation of the opposite qualities.
""Having overcome" refers to the discipline of knocking out an evil quality by its opposite good (that is by dealing with each category of evil separately) or through the overcoming of evil part by part [tadangavinaya] and through the disciplining or the overcoming of the passions by suppression in absorption [vikkhambhana vinaya]."http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... wayof.html
There are three main ways to abandon the unskilfull qualities:
- tadanga-pahana - by cultivating the opposite skillful qualities - on the stage of developing virtue;
- vikkhambhana-pahana - by cultivating jhanas - on the stage of developing concentration;
- samuccheda-pahana - by finding and removing the prerequisites of theor arising - on the stage of developing wisdom.http://www.palikanon.com/english/wtb/n_r/pahaana.htm
"Tadanga-pahana" is largely forgotten nowadays, and can be found in early texts like
Sallekha sutta http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .nypo.html
It is the main instrument for preliminary removal of coarse hindrances.
Satipatthanas are practiced after the preliminary removal of hindrances:http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .horn.html
