by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:
➥ ubhato-bhāga-vimutta: the 'both-ways-liberated one', is the name of one class of noble disciples (see ariya-puggala). He is liberated in 2 ways, namely, by way of all 8 absorptions (see jhāna) as well as by the supermundane path (Sotāpatti, etc.) based on insight (see vipassanā). In MN 70 it is said:
“Who, o monks, is a both-ways-liberated one'? If someone in his own person has reached the 8 liberations (absorptions), and through wise penetration the cankers (see āsava) have become extinguished, such a one is called a both-ways-liberated one.”
Cf. DN 15.
In the widest sense, one is both-ways-liberated if one has reached one or the other of the absorptions, and one or the other of the supermundane paths (cf. AN 9.44).
The first liberation is also called 'liberation of mind' (cetovimutti), the latter liberation through wisdom' (paññā-vimutti). The first liberation, however, is merely temporary, being a liberation through repression (vikkhambhana-vimutti = vikkhambhana-pahāna: see pahāna).
