Hatha yoga practice on Possessors of right view see the path to nirvana but have not yet achieved it. What enables them to follow the path, which would be almost impossible if not completely impossible for ordinary people, is that the acquisition of right view destroys the bulk of one s karmic burden. A passage in the Sanyutta Nikaya describes it thus: Even so, for the ariyasavaka [noble hearer] who has attained Right View, for the person possessing panna [insight], this is quite the greater dukkha, this that has been destroyed, has been put to an end, whilst that which remains is infinitely small and does not amount to one hundredth, does not amount to one thousandth, does not amount to one hundredth thousandth, when set beside the former dukkha that has been destroyed, has been put to an end that is at most a term of seven (births) so great a good is (it to have) insight into Dhamma, so great a good is it to acquire the Dhammacakkhu [eye seeing the Dhamma].35 Those who have acquired right view (ariya savakas, noble hearers) are, according to the Pali texts, of four types type being determined by the number of hindrances destroyed and the number of rebirths that the person can expect to experience.36 The first of these is the streamwinner, who has destroyed the three fetters of personality belief, sceptical doubts, and faith in good works and religious rituals. The streamwinner will be reborn no more than seven times. Second is the once-returner, who has destroyed the same fetters as the streamwinner and weakened lust, ill will and dullness.
