Arahantship.

Each of these four supramundane stages involves two phases. One is the “path” (magga) that eradicates the fetters, the other is the “fruit” (phala), moments of supramundane consciousness that result from the path, made possible by the path’s work of eradication.

The fruit is the enjoyment made available by the work of the path. The fruit can be entered and enjoyed many times after the appropriate path has been reached. The noble disciple determines to enter the fruit, then develops insight until he does so. The highest fruit is the fruit of arahantship.
