vimutti: Description welcome. Info can be removed after imput.
➥ vimutti: Release; freedom from the fabrications and conventions of the mind. The suttas distinguish between two kinds of release. Discernment-release (paññā-vimutti) describes the mind of the arahant, which is free of the āsavas. Awareness-release (ceto-vimutti) is used to describe either the mundane suppression of the kilesas during the practice of jhāna and the four brahma-vihāras [see AN 6.13], or the supramundane state of concentration in the āsava-free mind of the arahant.
by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:
'Deliverance of mind', in the highest sense, is that kind of concentration (samādhi) which is bound up with the path of Arahatship (Arahatta-magga); 'deliverance through wisdom' is the knowledge (ñāṇa) bound up with the fruition of Arahatship (Arahatta-phala). Cf. AN 5.142.
There are also 5 kinds of deliverance, identical with the 5 kinds of overcoming (see pahāna).
